Setting up external flash w/ D5100
Jun 21, 2013

I'm preparing to use an external flash for the first time. I have the Nikon SB700 for use with my Nikon D5100 body, and the instruction manual just doesn't really make sense to me so I'm asking here.
I want to use the SB700 *off* of the camera, but I don't want the camera's built-in flash to be used at all. I want the SB700 to be the only flash but working from a remote location, not mounted on the camera. How do I set this up? And is the SB700 functioning in this situation as a slave because it's not mounted to the camera, or as the master because it's the only flash being used?
