    Default Nikon Speedlight problem

    Recently, i got a Nikon speedlight SB700 for my D700. I am new in using a external flashlight. Most of the time i am shooting in manual mode. When i first installed my flashlight (TTL mode) and my camera in manual mode, ISO 200, Shutter speed 1/80 and Aperture F8. My camera reading show it is underexposed, but the picture came out quite okie, if i play around with the camera setting, it always show underexposed, Why is it so? How come my camera never tell me the correct exposure?? And when i set the flashlight in Rear or slow, i think it doesnt have any effect at all. When my camera in Aperture priority, the speed can go as low as 1sec, i thought with the flashlight on, it shouldnt have this kind of slow shutter speed. Can anyone please advice me on the flash

    You need to learn the basics of metering and how flash works. A good place to start is here:
