You can buy a pair of Yonguno iTTL transceivers for about $85.00. They will control the flash in many different ways. Make sure you buy the iTTL version

Im pretty sure the D3100 doesnt support cls, could be wrong, so you will not have ttl, however, you can set the flash to SU-4 and use it that way it just means that you will have to adjust the flash power manually.
You can get third party wireless controllers but again they dont support ttl so again you will have to set up manually if you go down this route.

Pocket wizards are radio frequency fired, su-800 is IR line of sight .Pocket wizards cost more. SU 800 is TTL , pocket wizard you will have to do manual settings. SU-800 has focus assist, PW's don't. I'm sure there's a few more I'm forgetting but they are the main differences.

I know I can do that but I'm just curious if I wanted 2 of them as off flashes I could just use a 3rd SB700 in the hot shoe? My main question was, what's the difference in the pocket wizards and SU800 if I decided to do it that way

Thank you~

Just use one you already have to control the other, unless of course you have a need for two flashes off camera. You could always use the flashes in SU-4 mode but you would then have to control output manually.

Question

Can I use the SB-700 wirelessly with my D7000?

Everything I read seems to indicate that I can use the SB-700 wirelessly with my D7000 without an additional command unit. If this is so, how do I set this up, or are there additional accessories I need to make it work?

I have this combo also, and yes you can.
Make sure the SB-700 is in remote mode, then in the camera, go to the pencil menu, in bracketing/flash, then flash cntrl..., then put it in commander mode. make sure your flash on the camera is popped up, and your all set to go.

Also, it can sync up to 1/320 if you go to the pencil, bracketing/flash, then change the flash sync speed to 1/320.

Have fun!

Yes the SB-700 can be used remotely, however, the on board flash has to be used to control it thus technically you cant turn it off as it still has to send a signal to the flash unit. You can set it in the menu to -- but the flash will fire though you may get some residual light from the flash, you could of course buy the SG-3ir which sits on the hot shoe and so stops the residual flash from affecting your images.

I dun think so. I have never tried the D5100 but if it doesn't have a Built-in Camera flash commander option, I guess it doesn't.

http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9520/~/nikon-creative-lighting-system-%28cls%29

http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11938/~/how-to-use-the-built-in-speedlight-in-commander-mode-to-control-remote This one might not be updated yet.

Or if you have 2 SB700, you can attach one to your camera hotshoe to act as a commander unit for the other off-camera SB700.

But still check with your local Nikon representative first.

Yes and no, no in that the D5100 has no CLS command built in. You can however use the flash in SU-4 mode but then it would be in manual and you would have to adjust the flash yourself.

The D3100 built in flash is not CLS compatible. In order to do CLS on a D3100 you'll need a SU-800 or a CLS master capable flash (SB700, 900 or 910) unit on the D3100.

The section for this SB700 flash has a list of cameras that are compatible with this flash and the D90 is listed.
I personally dont know why they would not be compatible, the D90 specs says it is CLS supported.
You may want to check out the Support section on site for this flash or camera model.

Hi
I see FV lock on flash, but in searching tech specs for your camera, it says nothing about FV lock on D5100.
I would suggest asking Support for help.
They will respond in a timely and efficient manner...

To my knowledge none of the Nikon flash units can be powered by external sources.

Would be a good question for Service and Support....

Question

Will the SB-700 work with an SC-17 remote cord and D80 bode?

I have a D80, with a bracket grip and SC-17 coiled remote cord that extends the hot shoe to the bracket. This worked for an older Speedlight and an N70. Will it work for the D80 and SB-700 and still include the i-TTL function or do I need to upgrade to the SC-28 or SC-29?

I found some additional information in Nikon's support section regarding my original question. It says:

Using the SC-17, SC-28 and SC-29 with i-TTL compatible cameras and Speedlights
When an SC-17, SC-28 or SC-29 cable is used for off-camera flash photography with i-TTL compatible cameras such as the D70 or newer DSLRs, correct exposure may not occur if using i-TTL Balanced fill-flash. It is recommended to select spot metering in order for the camera to use standard i-TTL flash metering instead. This will improve consistency of flash exposures when using off-camera flash photography.

I've never tried the combination of the SC-17 with the D-80 and SB-700 Speedlight, but do know that the SC-28 TTL Coiled Remote Cord works, as does the SC-29.

Hi
I do not know this camera well, but looking in the specs , it does not say that the built in flash is also commander too,
I would say to ask the Service and Support here at Nikon site.
If it does command remote flash, I’m sure it would utilize all the TTL functions that Nikon has produced, not only manual mode...
hope this helps a little...

I searched the entire site at Nikon , and only find SB600 & SB800 to be compatible with N65.
I would suggest contacting Support here on site...
