How to manually control the speedlight?
8 months ago


I have Nikon SB-910 speedlight and I'm interested in manually controlling it for longer expositions. How can I manually start/discharge/flash (I don't know the right word, sorry) the speedlight? It has a red button, but I think it is only for a weak modelling flash.

Is it possible from the speedlight itself?

Or can I control it from the camera?

Or do I have to use a remote control?

The manual does not provide an answer.
