I'm at my wits end today, just spent four hours trying to figure my problem out, googled, read the manual, I can't figure it out.
I've got my Nikon D300 and Speedlight SB 800. All I'm trying to do is get the flash to flash on the camera. I did it the other night, but this morning, it got really erratic with the flashing. Sometimes it would, sometimes it wouldn't. I changed the batteries. Still the same. So I started fiddling with the Speedlight controls and now I've got myself into a total mess.
I've read the manual, and I'm still lost.
I haven't changed any settings on the camera since I used it last. I did get it to flash attached to the camera, but the photos were nearly black. So I'm thinking sync speed maybe? I tried the on camera flash, and the exposure is fine.
I have it on TTL at the moment, should I have it on remote or master? I thought I had it on remote this morning when it was working, but now I can't remember.
I think I've had it on every setting possible. And I'm stumped.
Just wondered why my pictures are dark? And what settings should I have the Speedlight on?
