Hi, can anybody tell me how to on the AF Assist illuminator in the SB800 when it plug in to my D200? without the SB800, my D200 built in illuminator work fine, but with it, it doesn't on.
I was press the "SEL" button in SB800 and enter the control panel, then on the AF Assist but still didn't work. i just worry my SB800 got problem.

I'm not sure how this should work on a D200 but on a D80, the AF Assist Iluminator of the SB800 disables the camera's built it iluminator, unless you disable the SB800's iluminator using it's control panel.

Also, remember the iluminator won't fire up when in AF-C mode
