Re: using i-TTL flash

All he said about TTL-BL vs just TTL is true for DX/FX cameras with the big flashes that have controls to select between the modes. The SB-5N has effectively no controls other than on/off. When you do turn it on, IT sets a shutterspeed floor of 1/60th. At that point Program, Shutter and Aperture all are the same, wide open at no longer than 1/60. It is still best to set your own ISO for flash and especially bounce flash. I agree manual ISO800 seems best.
