Re: A short tutorial on old compact Metz flashes

Quick question ... I was looking at the wireless adaptor sca 3083
but I can't find out if it can be triggered using the onboard flash
of the DS.

Yes, you can. The SCA 3083 allows for different modes of pre-flash
suppression, and the first one of those works nicely with the Ds'
onboard flash.

Just to make sure, because there's often confusion about that:

You can trigger it, but not control it. No wireless P-TTL. The camera will do the preflash, adjust its own flash, and for the main flash, the slave flash fires in addition. Either in its manual or auto mode.

Cheers
Jens
