Off camera flash system
Jul 26, 2012

Hi,

me and my friend from "dark" side tried to set up light system of one Canon 430 ex2 and one Nikon SB900. Camera was Canon 7D and both flashes were adjusted to work off camera. Canon unit was working perfectly while the SB900 wasn't turned on. When Nikon flash turned on, it started to fire on camera command, and Canon flash unit stopped responding. I suppose that light from Nikon made confusion to the 430 exII unit, because when I turned Nikon to not fire directly to Canon, both system fired.

Does someone have an idea what is about and what I need to correct on this configuration?
