Manual Lens & Flsah photography on 6006

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by bryan_durr, Sep 16, 2002.

  1. My 35/70MM F3.3 AF NIKKOR lens ended up in the shop and now I have a
    shoot on Wednesday that will require that I use a manual lens on a
    Nikon 6006. The problem lays in the fact that I do not own a
    speedlight flash unit, which is all the manual keeps referring to,
    and the last time I did any flash photography with a manual lens was
    about 20 years ago. I will be shooting a lot of faces and podium
    shots at a meeting.

    Can you recommend the best and simplest way to set the camera so that
    I get good results. I will be using a Manual NIKKOR 35MM.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  2. I think I'm missing something in your question. Your 6006 has a built-in flash, you can use it with a manual lens without loosing TTL. Just consider what distance you'll be shooting, since this flash in NG 12, you won't reach more than 6 meters (if your 35 mm is the f 2 version) with film ISO 100, so maybe you'll have to use a higher speed film.
