    Hey guys,
    I've been playing with off camera flash with my D90 for a bit and have had decent results. I have recently picked up some no name triggers and i have been using them with the flash on manual and setting the flash power on the flash it self.
    The other day i was shootingand had the flash hidden behind a wall and had to keep walking through the shot and around the wall to make adjustments.
    I haven't played with the setting much at this point, but is there a way to use the CLS menu or similar to control the flash output when using the triggers?

    Thanks in advance.

    V2s also shoot behind walls.

    But you can't adjust the flashes via CLS with Cactus triggers. That was what the OP was asking.

    Thanks for the answers. Although i was hoping for better news, i guess i'm stuck on the manual on flash settings while using the triggers i have.
    Cheers
