    Will the IR trigger works well with Nikon SB800 flash?

    if you want to use metering wirelessly with the sb800 there are two ways..

    definitely using CLS (wireless TTL) or the A mode on the sb800 but u have to dial in aperture and iso. the second way i've never tried though...

    if u have to ask more questions, the answers would probably be in the manual (at least the first two questions can be answered by the manual).
