In Topic: Nikon 105mm VS comparer to other versions of Nikon 105mm

20 December 2015 - 08:57 AM

I own the 85mm AFS-VR. They are without a doubt good lenses. I was just curious if anyone is using older model lenses. The glass is actually really good in some of the older lenses. While they do have drawbacks but I was wondering if anyone had any adivice on how they overcame them. Or has everyone just switched to the newer lenses. One of the reasons I bought the D7100 was the lens focus motor in the housing. It opens up a larger line of lenses. Then I end up buying lenses with focus motors.


It was just something I was curious about.

In Topic: Question on strobe power and Syncing with Camera D7100 YS 250 Strobes

20 June 2015 - 07:28 AM

Ok at this point all I see is spots. The strobes fire in manual. They don't fire when set to ttl, If I understand the manual that setting can only be used when using a hardwired 5 pin cable or converter. The strobes also fire in the slave position one and two which is for one pre-flash or two.


 Hi Rodd,


"Your strobes (connected via fiber optic and in TTL mode) will mimic the output from your camera's flash. This includes the output of the pre-flash!


So when your camera pre-flashes, your strobes do so too. The camera then interprets the amount of light it "thinks" is needed to light the scene and sets the flash output - which is then mimicked again by your strobes.


Does that help?"



This post was on a linked forum page. If I understand correctly then I can shoot in the ttl setting on my camera by setting my strobe to either one or two and my strobe will match the power of the output of my camera flash?

I don't understand how a light single can be matched but i guess technology is wonderful.
