Two or three SB26 flashguns in manual mode

Any advice appreciated. Many thanks!

Hmmm ... interesting question. Clearly, if you have the kit you can experiment with different scenarios for yourself.

I have a D750 and lots of flashguns. Although one of these is a SB800 my preferred scenario is two ancient SB26 flashguns, off camera in slave mode (actually, I have a third SB26) and for my use they are all running manually-set,  usually very dialled down (1/32 or 1/64) and only maximum 1m from the subject.

I am rather critical of the machine gun approach to photography but I am fairly sure the setup I have described can easily match the 4 or 5 frames per second you mention. If I find time, I'll test it out tomorrow and come back to you.

What exactly are you trying to achieve, what sort of subject distances, what general lighting circumstances?

D750; 2 x SB26 flashguns; 1 x male blackbird (Turdus merulus) ; 1 x unconnected Minox flashgun
