Thread: D70 user need help

    Default D70 user need help

    I got a D70 from a fellow clubsnapper. I'm very happy with it. But one thing I don't understand why the speedlight SB-800 which is made specially for D70 doesn't work so well. The build-in flash works better instead. Hope to get some pointers from you guys. Thanks

    Care to elaborate why the SB800 "doesn't work so well"?

    Probably set to Manual Mode.

    well,I use auto mode but seems "under". Switch to build-in flash seems much better. How to make them synchronise perfectly?

    If you want any help, you'll first need to provide more information - "seems a bit under" isn't enough. Like what were the settings on both the camera and the flash, and some sample photos.
