SB-600 issues with AC3 controller
Nov 29, 2012

Just got TT1 and a couple TT5s in the mail, along with an AC3 controller, and I can't figure out the problem with triggering SB-600. Got 2 flashes, SB800 and SB600, each set to different zones.

1. SB-600 doesn't sync (1/250sec) as well as my SB-800 does. SB-600 lags the sync to where I can actually see it going off in the viewfinder after the shot is taken.

2. I cannot seem to manipulate FEC output on SB-600 (set to a separate zone) in both TTL / M modes. The flash output remains the same as I set by hand on the flash.

None of this happens with SB-800. This is beyond me as I am a beginner in photography. Please instruct.
