There are a number of different ways to trigger the i40 off-camera. SD/SF slave modes These are simple optical slave modes that are built into the flash, and can trigger it remotely on any flash burst, including the one from your α6000's pop-up flash. SD (slave digital) is if your pop-up is in TTL (has a single preflash), SF (slave film) is if your ...

You should be able to use the PocketWizards to fire the Nissin i40 using your Fuji X-T1. The only wireless capability you will have is to "fire" the flash. You'll need to set power and zoom directly using the flash's control panel. You will only be able to use the i40 flash in manual mode with the Fuji when you are using radio triggers. It is also not ...

There are three possible ways you can remotely trigger the Di-866 from the D810's pop-up flash. The most probable issue you have is that you've set the pop-up flash to one system, while you've set the flash to a different one.

For most sports, you are going to shoot with ambient light, using a flash with many sports would be ineffective in the best cases (due to distance and positioning) and would interfere with the athletes in the worst case, and downright dangerous in some cases (like gymnastics for instance). I don't think you are going to get too much light from a single ...

The PocketWizard IVs are manual-only triggers, and ISO-compatible, so you should at least be able to fire an i40 in sync with the camera shutter. Whether the group/zone settings will work is unknown. And you won't have any remote control over the flash settings, such as zoom or power. However, if you're fine with manual-only, you don't have to get an i40....

Warning: I just bought a YN622C-TX + 2x YN622C and the TX DOES NOT trigger the Nissins correctly. Neither in HSS nor normal mode. However the YN622C triggers the other one just fine. Its somehow strange that Yongnuo doesn't get it right to trigger their own devices. What I had to do was add the latest firmware to the TX, which requires you to have a ...

I have no experience with the Nissin Di700, but the YN-622C triggers can communicate high speed sync, so it should work. However if this is your first/only flash, you might be better off returning the Di700 and getting a Di700A and the Nissin Air 1 Commander, so you'll have a built-in receiver, rather than using an add-on one. The Di700A is the same price ...
