Hello there,

I have setup the camera and the flash for a wireless remote, The flash guns with a god power but... out of sync!
I see it shoot but nothing on the picture, only the subtle light of the builtin flash used as remote...
The same setup works perfectly with my SB600, I am wondering if there is a way to get the right syncro with this sigma flash or if I have to bring it back to the shop!!

thanks for your advice!

Maybe your pop up flash is pre flashing to autometer? If you're using peanut slaves then the pre-flash could trigger the Sigma. By the time the real flash hits, the Sigma is drained and is still recycling.

Maybe?:scratch:

That would be my guess at first thought. If you are using an optical slave to trigger the remote flash, then it's probably being triggered by the built-in flash's pre-flash.

This sigma flash is supposed to be triggered by the D200 as does the SB-600...
there is no optical slave! The only trigger I use is the Nikon Builtin flash, andthe Sigma fire just before the shutter... wiered!
