I agree with Gerry.

Personally, wireless P-TTL using the pop-up to trigger the off-camera flash has been effective in some cases, but can be a frustrating until you it set up correctly and start getting successful exposures. The user might be at fault here...

I MUCH prefer manual mode with wireless triggers, like for studio flashes.

Hi Miles.  I'm not arguing, but for the OP I should mention that the inbuilt wireless system supports all the methods on the gun: P-TTL, A and M and (I think) HSS.  Using two sources (onboard + one gun) or three sources (onboard + two guns) you need to use M to be to balance the light from different directions, so I've always used that mode.
