OK so after a few nights of playing with it, I've decided to send it back.

This thing just sucks as a slave. I can put the camera in manual mode and lower the flash settings to the minimum have have them trigger the Vivitar off camera. But it sucks. And I know it sucks because it works great mounted on the camera. I can dial it in great and use it as a bounce flash, but that's not what I want. This thing advertises as a wireless TTL that works for Nikon. It's a shitty lie.

Also 4 Energizers lasted about 120 maybe 150 shots at 1/4 power. Seems fairly low doesn't it?

I'm going to return it and get the SB-700, unless anyone can give me a reason to keep the Vivitar over it?

Thanks for the help guys.
