I useordinary slavetrigger+old blitz. I deactivated the red eye from my Sony DSC-S80. I setup manual the time.

When i make the photo with the only one of the blitz (the Sony's blitz or slave one) the photo are good.

When I make the photo with the both blitz the photo is dark

Sony's light + slave light = dark photo

Why ????????????

Probably because the camera still preflash for metering:

- The camera preflash, then theslave also flash
- The camera sees the flash is too strong (1 preflash + the slave)
- The camera reduce dramatically the flash power and takes the photo, under exposed of course because the slave did not have the time to recharge.
