D300s + sb600 + YN460 = no wireless flash?
May 8, 2012

Re-posting here as I didnt get any responses in the D300 forum...sorry

Hi all, i'm trying to get into wireless flash on the cheap side. I have a d300s and a sb600 and recently bought a yongnuo yn460 flash with the intention of triggering it wirelessly with the d300 as' commander' (by the way, i'm aware the this is a manual flash only...i have no expectations of ttl)

Ive tried every poosible setting but both flashes wont fire at the same time. If the yn fires , then the sb will not fire and if i turn off the yn, then the sb will fire perfectly. Ive tried both S1 and S2 modes,both with the same result,

Funny thing is that i have tried the same setup with my d80 and it works perfectly. Both flashes fire off perfectly.

Any clue as to what could be different on the d300s to cause this?
