For the love of all that is good - please help! I want to use in MANUAL not TTL - is it possible?
To anyone that can provide an answer - a MILLION thanks and FOREVER grateful.
I purchased the Cactus V6 for my Nikon SB 700 because I wanted to do OFF camera flash in MANUAL mode; like you can do with the Nikon SB 900 or Nikon SB910.
I read through the Cactus Manual and it says to attach the Cactus to the Nikon SB 700 put the speed light (Nikon SB700) in TTL mode then turn on the Cactus in RX mode. I have a Cactus in TX mode on the hot shoe of my camera.
SO???? TTL mode for Manual operation? Really????
My question is
Do I still get to use the back LED screen on the SB 700 that shows critical MANUAL operation info like distance to subject, power level increments (1/16, 1/250 etc) and Zoom?
If so - please show me how!!! Please. I've attached a photo whereby I turned the SB 700 to Manual then switched the RX Cactus on. How do I change the display on the SB 700? Can I change the display on the SB 700? How do I change the power levels and subject to sensor distance?
Yes, I am a brand newbie to the flash camera world and would love any advice from the wise sages in the community.
So to clarify I have
2 Cactus V6 - one on the camera hot shoe in TX mode; one on the Nikon SB 700 in RX mode. Both have correct profiles dialled in (Nikon SB 700).
From there I am completely lost on how to operate it.
I have no idea why the photo uploaded side ways! ARG!!!
Thank you so much
