Off-flash with Nikon CLS program


This video is an introduction to integrated use of Nikon CLS (Creative Lighting System) wirelessly from the camera flashes firing. Many of the Nikon DSLRs have the ability to wirelessly control off camera flashes. This system is very powerful in that uses both TTL and manual control and limited a little, because Infared line of view and is limited in scope. The surprising thing is that you control the performance of multiple flashes in different groups directly through the built-in, pop-up flash of the camera. In this video, I use a Nikon D700 in the built-in pop-up flash to control an off-camera Nikon SB800 Flash for a small light box and another SB800 through a perforated umbrella. By entering this flash control settings of the camera and adjust the camera’s built-in flash act, to act as commander, you can wirelessly control flashes out from the camera. I play a little understanding about the areas of lighting, ambient light sensor, key light and fill light. Everything important to understand how to dial in the correct amount of light for flash photography. If you have any questions or comments, please leave below or e-mail

an epic science fiction films in glow-in is the 2084th year after the nuclear war, America was, along with most of the world in ruins. Has taken over the management or “exe”, an organization that the oppressive control over certain areas. The building “dome” companies during the search for survivors and seizure against his will. The goal is to release a better future. Most go to their assigned jobs, while others plan to escape. The award for Best Costume Design / design stage in eastern Idaho, director Film Festival Kiwanis adolescents, says: I was a senior in high school when I did that was all visual effects compositing with After Effects . I Invigorator 3D models imported into After Effects with Zaxwerks 3D. Rendering time was horrible, one heavy VFX four seconds to make a clip often took an hour. The blaze of color / lens were an artist, and also add an aspect of science-fiction, is I can have some. Although many major film was (which explains details) leave, I did not have enough time to clean the remaining footage. I wanted to explain the organization, but had no 3-D extensions set composed of unused material. This project had more potential, but since then I had to see the video in my class, I realized that things like the arc of history in general, was the development of character, or the script, general, not just the height that the additional cost of 30 hours of visual effects. I hope you enjoy it for what it is.

    Hey Adam love videos and your sense of humor keep the good work, just a question of what the remote control shutter is opening, in this video, as I need it?

  4. MontyBPhotography

    Great video! Maybe … SB-700 and SB-600 and needed some information on the CLS system he’d bought for the quick trip through very useful!

  5. notjustamoma

    ¿I can use a SB700 as a backlight with 2 alien bees as main light and fill? If so, I need some kind of umbilical cord?

  6. TMPhotos1

    I, m starting with the LC system. Great Vid .. really useful Thank you.

  7. sakulsang

    Before the speed 1/200s, f/4.0. The amount of speed you get? I will not hear properly.

  8. cesarstoer

    Thanks Adam, was found by the manufacturer’s website. The video was exactly what I, as I have new flash and an umbrella on the way and do not know how it is necessary that the camera flash sync speed. Next video now.

  12. SuperFocus360

  13. LiviaTrends

  17. diphax

    This is really cool. Praise the smoothness of the small light box. Have just behind the camera and Flass expands the creative possibilities of a lot

  18. soul05extinct

    Hey man thanks for that .. I appreciate it ..

  19. marcusboos78

    No, I had a D3000 and can not be with the commander of pop-up flash. But you can use an SB900 on the camera as a commander. (Some other Nikon flash units as well, but not SB 600). A good alternative to CLS or Pocket Wizard are more or less this: Yongnuo RF-602

  20. marcusboos78

    Yes, with a pocket wizard (or any other radio-control system) will work. There is no such thing as TTL Manual only, but on! I use an SB-600 and an old Minolta 5400xi flash all the time. But I’ve also used a borrowed Canon flash.

  21. zhale47

    good and all, but never cover, in which the institution of the flashes?

  22. artimustwo8

    When do you want, when they reflect a light box, choose to use an Umbrella, or money or anything else the flash naked.

  23. RichPark92

    Great video as usual, I wondered how long it will take to the effective creation and camera flashes?

  24. rastafaris123
