Modeling illumination

From Nikonians Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

A consecutive number of flashes for approx 1.5 seconds at reduced flash output level generated by the flash unit to light up the model to confirm the light situation. This can be useful to e.g. check how shadows are cast on the subject prior of taking the picture.

The modeling flash is emitted by the Nikon Speedlight by pressing specific button on the flash unit, or it is triggered by the camera, e.g. via the Pv button on a D850 or via DOF button on most.

In a CLS scenario with Advanced Wireless Lighting with multiple flashes connected in a master-slave relation, all remote flashes will fire model illumination at the fixed flash output level (and at the mode selected) once the master does/says so.

Note: Some Speedlights only have a single "modeling flash" generated, which is not the same thing as "model illumination".
