In Topic: Old strobes as slave/fill

If your DS-200 does not put out a preflash, then yes the slave strobe should fire at the right time but I suspect it might be a full dump.

In Topic: Old strobe

13 October 2012 - 05:58 PM

I use the HW Digital Adapter with my old analog Ikelite Substrobes 50's & a SS300. I prefer to shoot my camera in manual exposure mode so the digital adapter only needs to slave trigger to fire the strobe. The plus part is that it simulates a TTL control while my camera is in manual exposure mode.

When I tried my camera in AUTO or Programmed exposure modes, I had to reconfigure the digital adapter to skip the preflash my camera's internal strobe put out and then fire the flash with the TTL control. Very nice, it works but I still prefer to shoot my camera in Manual exposure mode.

PM me if you need help.
