    Hi all,

    I been in and out a few forums, read the manual but seems can't figure out
    how to trigger other SB-800 using the SB-800 mounted on top of my D1H and S2
    Pro.

    Is it impossible to do without a SU-4 ? or I read the wrong section of the
    manual ?

    TIA

    Hi there.

    I don't have 2 SB800s, only 1 SB600, so can't really help.

    I agree that for the price of these guns, the instruction manuals are not
    much help.

    Have a look at http://www.imaging-resource.com
    where you will find a detailed description of Flash use in the Nikon D70
    Review.

    Hope it helps, if you do not get a detailed answer here.

    Its done.
    A further googling around reveals that SU-4 is actually BUILT into the
    SB-800 now :p
    I really have no idea what's the difference between the slave on the SB-26,
    SB-30,SB-80DX I have
    [and if they are no different , why they name that mode SU-4 now :D]

    anyway just set it to SU-4 mode and you are set to go :)
    its not actually CLS, but it'll do til I upgrade to a new body.

    Set them both to SU-4 in the custom menu.
