I just bought myself a flash activated slave trigger.


Problem is, when i take picture with built in flash, even though my remote flash is triggered off, it doesn't seem to illuminate the picture.


can anybody help me with this problem?

mostly likely the pre flash of your inbuilt flash trigger your remote flash before the camera shutter open, solution is to switch off the pre flash function of your inbuilt flash via setting it to manual mode.

Hope this helps.

at least ur slave trigger is not spoilt since it can trigger ur remote flash..try what catchlights have explained, u have to set the in-built flash to fire in manual mode first..so that ur flashes are in sync wif ur shutter..

try setting your flash mode to manual instead of TTL... this should disable the preflash leaving your with just the actual flash.
Can the D50's built-in flash be set to manual? IIRC, it can only be used in TTL mode.
