i-TTL converter for Nikon SB 104 or 105?

Recommended Posts

Hello

I searched on the forum for previus threads with no joy. Does anyone know about i-ttl options for my Subalhoused Nikon D200 with Nikon SB-104 or 105?

I beleave HW, Ikelight and Sea&sea will not work but I´m not sure.

Since I´ve got Nikons SB-104 and 105 I would rather not swithch strobesystem if possible.

Any suggestions?

Regards Joakim

Hi Joakim - my understanding is that the SB104/5 don't have the capacity to deliver the quick succession of pre-flashes required under the i-TTL protocol. So it is not so much that a converter cannot provide an appropriate signal for them, but that the strobes can't 'implement' the provided as required - if that makes sense. So no converter will give you i-TTL with those strobes as I understand it. I actually had the SB105s when I first switched to digital, but have since moved to DS125s which I can recommend.

 

That is not to say that you can't continue to use the SB 105/4 strobes in manual flash mode. Many people here actually prefer manual mode, particularly for wide angle photos see TTL Anonymous for more discussion. In fact, I still use manual for wide angle shots.

 

Alternatively, you could look at one of the Ikelite converters and their strobes...which will work with your housing.

Perhaps speak to Ryan at Reef Photo Video - see link in the ads on the RHS of the screen - about suggested options?
