D800 - flash mode settings, please help
Aug 21, 2012

Guys,

Could someone please shed some light over this matter for me? I have a D800 and use its built in flash to trigger 2 groups of speedlights, 2 SB900 and 2 SB700. I normally like to control the amount of light and thus most of the times I use them in M mode. I don't really understand if it matters what I have teh speedlights set to (TTL M or GN) if my in teh commander mode D800 is set to M for both groups and -- for built in flash (to emit only pre-monitor flashes)..Do I need to set all, teh commander in D800 and all remotes in M mode? Can you guys please explain what does a setting vs the other?
Thanks!

Nikon D800
