The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
Recently bought the Pixel TD-383 battery pack for the SB-800 which is the copy of the Nikon SD-8A.
Used it for a couple of weddings and it's great.
However something I didn't realise/think of when purchasing - in addition to the power connector at the front - it needs to be connected to the PC synch connector. This is the same on the TD-383 and SD-8A.
When using my SB-800's for location shoots I prefer to set to manual and fire using my radio triggers (Elinchrom skyport) rather than CLS - however if I want to use these battery packs - these are now connected to the PC Sync connector which I'd otherwise use for triggering.
So I was wondering if anybody has used such battery packs and triggered in such a manner ?
I know I can use CLS - but there are several advantages to using radio triggers.
On asking Nikon if I could use a PC sync splitter I was told:
In theory it would work, however, I cannot advise to use it this way as it has not been designed to be used this way and we have not tested it this way, so unfortunately I cannot say what the results will be with regards to damage incurred to equiptment.
So just checking before I blow up my SB-800/batteries/etc.
You might get more responses to you question if you posted this in the D300 or D4 forums. This forum is for P&S cameras & doesn't usually get many responses to questions such as yours. Even though I use SB-800s, I don't have an answer for you.

Ah yes. thanks for the pointer.
I thought it was more a generic Nikon forum and would be suitable for speelight questions.

When the Fujifilm X-T2 arrived, it was more than just a modest upgrade to the already impressive X-T1. While the new X-T3 hasn't changed the overall design of the camera, this model is way more than an upgrade; rather, it's a quantum leap.
The Movie Maker is a compact, motorized slider designed for phones, action cams and small mirrorless cameras. We think it's a fun little kit and a good value proposition for the cost, provided you can work around a few of its weak points.
