p.1 #1 · Quantum Flash Users..CoPilot and TT1


So here's the theoretical setup:

Flash A: X3D-r ; FW31 ; FW10w
Flash B: X3D-r ; FW31 ; FW10w

Controller: D800 ; Mini TT1 ; CoPilot Nikon

*X4 to X5D-r not included as they have a different design.

Goal:

A. Hypersync flash at f16 / 1/4000 @ Full Power (400ws) --- Possible? (It worked with my plus II's)
B. Manual flash power control from CoPilot on top of Mini TT1 ---- Possible?

Any quantum flash users have any experience on this? Thank You

Never done it with an X3d-R or D800, but if your system is set up correctly you just set 1/1 on the CoPilot for each of your remotes and you will automatically get FP mode sync without the TT1. At lower outputs you will not get sync. Manual control with the CoPilot is already built-in. Set your FW10w to 'Norm' with all zones switched on.

CoPilot with X5d-R with FW7Q works 100%.

Hey Uk, when mounting the copilot alone on your camera, does it activate hypersync? Or fool the camera that a speedlight is attached? Or is it a completely separate gadget with only the trigger pin sticking out at the bottom..

You need to set your camera to FP mode to start in the camera menu. After that, either a 'D' adapter and transmitter, a Trio, a Pilot, or a CoPilot will all signal that a TTL device is present and enable beyond x-sync speeds. All those devices have multiple pin locking hotshoe mounts. As long as your remotes are set to 1/1.. either through one of the controllers or set manually on the remotes you will get sync right up to 1/8000s.

The X3d-R's should be pretty good as their flash duration is a long 1/250s.

I placed an order for the CoPilot. Thanks for clearing it out.
