comment Why don't most cameras use infrared for focusing?
@MattGrum - yes I know, but all IR LED's emit an amount of visible red as well - for example night-vision cameras with IR illuminators, you can see a glow from it.

Is it just red? I was told otherwise but could be wrong, I don't use my SB-910 very much really.

MOST use red / White - my old Fuji used green. Most CAN use IR Assist, many speedlights have built in IR illuminators

No idea, I've never had to have a camera repaired - it could be as simple as a sticky cog or bad motor, or as bad as a mainboard fault. Most likely not worth bothering though, as you have another, and its an old camera anyway.

comment Which is more efficient when shooting weddings: interpolating sRAW or shooting in jpeg?
agreed - but I use a D800... and 4GB CF cards. (and a permanent 4GB SD as an overflow) Personally I like being limited to say 50 shots per card, it makes you think more about each shot.

Thanks - I really find it odd that there isn't a simple manual entry mode eg next to bulb where you can just set say 48 seconds and leave it to it. Might be a nice little thing for someone do do in a custom firmware (wink wink nudge :-) - D800 please!)

comment Why do my Cybersyncs fire my Sunpak flashes with the test button, but not the shutter release?
2 things come to mind: It sounds like either the camera isnt sending the signal to the transmitter or the transmitter isnt receiving a signal for some reason - check EVERYTHING including your in-camera settings.
