D7100: HELP with built-in flash as commander
4 months ago

Hi, I am trying to use my SB700 as a slave with the built-in flash as commander.

The built in flash is disabled in the commander options ("--") and I understand that it will still flash to communicate with the slave. However, from all "manuals" I read this should not be visible on the photo as it flashes before the shutter opening. Unfortunately this is not the case with mine - it is visible on the photo, eg when shot in a mirror.

Flash setting on camera is on standard.

Any ideas, suggestions?

Thanks
