Flash Compensation
The flash compensation value selected with the 
M (Y) button and sub-command dial is 
added to the flash compensation values selected for the built-in flash, group A, and group B 
in the Commander mode menu. A 
Y icon is displayed in the control panel and viewfinder 
when a flash compensation value other than ±0 is selected for Built-in flash TTL. The 
icon flashes when the built-in flash is in mode M.
D
Commander Mode
Position the sensor windows on the remote flash units to pick up the light from the built-in 
flash (particular care is required if the camera is not mounted on a tripod). Be sure that direct 
light or strong reflections from the remote flash units do not enter the camera lens (in TTL 
mode) or the photocells on the remote flash units (AA mode), as this may interfere with 
exposure. To prevent timing flashes emitted by the built-in flash from appearing in 
photographs taken at short range, choose low ISO sensitivities or small apertures (high 
f-numbers) or use an optional SG-3IR infrared panel for the built-in flash. An SG-3IR is 
required for best results with rear-curtain sync, which produces brighter timing flashes. 
After positioning the remote flash units, take a test shot and view the results in the camera 
monitor.
Although there is no limit on the number of remote flash units that may be used, the 
practical maximum is three. With more than this number, the light emitted by the remote 
flash units will interfere with performance.
