Upload & Sell: Off
Well, now that I'm thinking about it, it may have also been possible that they were using an SB-400, which looks very similar to the SU-800.
If my 24-hour memory serves me right, I think I saw them go off while I didn't even have my camera up to my eyes. Then I saw him holding his camera, and went up to him asking if he was setting them off. There was a language barrier, so I don't know what he said.
Who knows... it is possible that in the rush of setting things up, I put 1/2 of the flashes into Slave Mode. I know that once in the past, I didn't put 3 of the flashes on 1/32 power like I normally do. The LumoPro 160 doesn't remember settings when you turn it off, so it defaults to 1/1 power when you power it back up.
But on the other hand, not all guests play nicely... and yet, even if I had known that he had actually lowered the stands to put them into Slave (they were 10 feet in the air), I'm not sure that it would've been worth causing a scene on a lovely couple's special day.
