I'm interested in creating a sync cable. Althought I have an SB28 I have a D100, which does not appear to have the pc sync connection. Is there such a thing as a hotshoe-to-AC connector? And if so, will it work in the cable in place of a pc sync cable connection work? Or will I need to buy a pair of Pocket Wizards if I want use the flash off-camera?

You need a Nikon AS-15 PC adapter for your camera. If you read through the gear section there is more info on it.

First of all, GREAT site! I admit to being afraid of off-camera lighting set ups until reading this site. Second, my father just gave me his SB-28 to sell, but I plan use it as my off camera flash. Know any way to slave my Canon 580EX (lacks sync connection) with the 28?

David, have you ever considered doing a 1 day workshop in the Baltimore / DC area? I am sure it would generate a lot of interest. I'm always amazed at what you can pull off with your strobes. You're like a lesser known Joe McNally.

Really enjoy your blog - check it out daily. Helpful info on lighting for sure and inspired me not to spend a fortune on lights I probably don't need. Check out my photoblog when you get a chance, too,

Thanks! Ian

Great site!
I was trained in the 80's for shoots in the studio. Things change and now I shoot different. My business took me on location more often and I always carried gear like a studio photographer. Now I am learning differently and using the less is better philosophy. Thanks for all your help.

Just a quick request re SB 24s: can they be made to fire with just the light from my on camera flash? Or will I need some sort of adaptor? I want to do it wirelessly if I can, as I will be using it for wedding photography. I purchased a used one from Adorama. It came without paperwork. Thanks for any help. Great, fun, site.

I think Chuck Gardners articles are interesting enough to be included in the links page.

He has some interesting and illustrated articles on technique. How to light with a window and how to use flash.

He is clearly a strobist. At least in spirit. He says the learnt flash photography from Monte Zucker.

A very stupid question lol!

Speaking in gelatin filters to flash:

I have buy a full CTO gelatin filter.

I found among my material a revelation BW kitt Kodak Polymax Filter Set!
omeone has a table of Kelvins from these filters so you can use the flash to match the 1 / 2 CTO Converts tungsten (3200K) to 4300K or
1 / 4 CTO Converts tungsten (3200K) to 3600K

A preference equivalence for all the filters?
