p.1 #1 · can you set ttl-fp on Nikon SB 910 off-camera?


Obviously, I know you can do it on-camera, and I know you can do it off-camera using the Pocket Wizards, but wondering if I can do it off-camera using my Alienbee transmitter and receivers? I can't get the SB-910 to switch to TTL-FP.

Can I use the SB900 as a commander to fire the SB910 remotely in TTL-FP? I shoot with a D4.

Thanks,
Ron

Just found out from PCB that I can't use the Alienbee trigger to shoot in TTL-FP. That's it? I have to buy Pocket Wizards?

As you found, no, the AB CyberSyncs can't do it; it requires a Nikon-dedicated system like the Pocket Wizard ControlTL units or (I think) the new Yongnuo YN-622N.

Yes, or an SU-800 Commander. Because that method is optically-based rather than radio-based, you'll have the usual line-of-site and bright ambient issues, but it many situations it works well.

radio poppers will also let you use ttl. you just have to buy the system that matches your nikon or canon system.

Yongnuo 622n are just released for Nikon .
Check the youtube tutorials. they are very similar to canon and you can ttl, use the 622n,s for control. anyway check out the Yongnuo 622n,s .I Just ordered a set they are supposed to arrive on the 23rd, I'll post my personal findings after I get them.Hope this helps
