Z7 with Speedlite SB-700 - off camera trigger?

20 September 2020 - 04:30 AM

Have a Z7 and an SB-700 Speedlite.


Can anybody tell me the simplest way to trigger the flash when it is on a separate stand, off camera?


I need to control the output and settings on the flash from the radio trigger that would mount onto the hotshoe of the Z7.


Does Nikon make one that works with SB-700, or any other company? Does the Godox Xpro work?

Z7 - top LCD display too dim, unreadable in any light

11 September 2020 - 01:27 AM

Just got a Z7. Anybody else notice how dim the top LCD display is when it's set to 'auto' in the menu. I did a test with it in auto. Now, I assume in auto it will detect how much light there is i.e. in the dark it will dim and in bright sunlight it will brighten up to make it readable, but no matter what lighting situation I'm in, it's dim as hell and unreadable. I had to set it to manual and turn it up to 6, which is where I leave it. Or is my camera faulty? Anybody else notice dim screen on auto?
