Hey Kevin

Hi Kevin, the camera has to be in Manual, the only thing that you can change it's the shutter speed, i set it at 1/500" and use the board flash sync to that speed (the flash also in manual at 1/16 power), of course no mettering!!

Hope I explained myself ok, if you have problems ask me again, good luck :-]

I just open the aperture completely, focus and close it a bit, but
as the Nikkor 18-55mm doesn't have the aperture ring (or whatever
it's called) I'm not 100% which f is it, maybe around f 10, and yes
I just hold it against the body,

this part has me stumped.
If you just hold it against the body, there is no lens att to the
camera at all yes?
I get the FEE error when i remove my lens ...
help!

Best Regards,
Arne
