3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash

From Nikonians Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

An advanced Fill flash mode where the camera is using the lens internal D chip which provides it with additional subject to distance information. The Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash (without the 3D) on the other hand does not need the distance input to work.

Using your camera-lens-flash in this combination should give you natural fill-flash light. It is fill flash so you should not use it when you need more light than just for filling.

It is a mode that is good for situations including bright subjects, subjects which are off center and for small subjects against a distant background.

The camera fires off a series of small, so called "monitor pre flashes" and measures the light coming back in using multiple TTL sensors. Combined with the distance-to-subject information it adjusts the light for the main flash. Older camera/speedlight combinations use D-TTL, meanwhile superseded by the the i-TTL mode's of later camera/flash combinations.

If you haven't seen it, we discuss Speedlights a lot.
