p.1 #1 · Question About My Nikon SB800


I am just trying to figure out my new SB800. I am trying to use it in manual mode. When it is attached to the camera, I can see on the flash LCD screen that when I power down the flash tells me what my range/distance of flash to subject should be. I.E. at M(anual) 1/4 power & ISO200 @95mm @F5.3 - flash should be 23ft from subject.

However, when I set it up off camera I don't see this "guide". I set it up in commander mode in the camera (CSM e2). And then I set the flash to Remote. At this point the flash LCD screen only shows "Remote".

As I understand, I then have to set the power of the remote flash in camera - but without the same distance guide that the flash LCD gives me when it is connected.

What am I missing here? Thanks for the help.

Tethered in Manual mode - suggested distance from flash to subject is 23'







Flash is off camera in commander/remote mode

Going from memory here, but, I don't believe you're missing anything. I think that's just the way they work.
It could be said, ,that's what you have an LCD on the back of the camera for.

That's just the way it is. Now you will be using your camera or an SU-800 to adjust the flash output in manual.
