Canon can do wireless TTL with their ST-E2 and EX series flashes. Nikon can do it with individual SU-4 TTL Slave units on each SB-series flash. Minolta can do with without additional equipment, I suppose. After all, they are 1st to come up with it.Originally posted by ninelives
Does anyone know if nikon/canon has wireless TTL capability? Minolta's system lets you place your flash units OFF camera with no cables, no wire and yet with TTL capability.
It's Canon's IR wireless TTL transmitter. Can control up to 4 flashes, I think. Costs around $280 or so.Originally posted by Paladin
Hey CK..what's a ST-E2 transmittter? Expensive??
you have to turn on your built-in flash. it serve as a triggle. the built in flash ask the wireless flash to fire.Originally posted by Flare
For your information.... Minolta's wireless TTL only works with a selected range of their high end 35mm SLR. It doesn't work with my D5, unless I purchase the additional adaptors/transmittor (I guess).
Only trouble is, it's not even as powerful as the cheaper SB22S, and uses the expensive CR123 batteries.Originally posted by spider
Nikon Sb50DX had built-in wireless TTL...i.e. u no need to get the slave trigger unit . Have tested it with my F80 build-in. works fine: Camera built-in flash as master, SB50DX (tripod or hand held by another PPL) as slave.
I also tried using 3rd party flash on my camera as master and it works fine too.
So those who go Nikon cam....can consdier SB50Dx lah (but not as powerful as SB28DX, but is 1/2 the price)
