Default Strobe with Nikon D100

Hello, I have just made the switch to digital, my Nikon D100 arrives next week.My concerns are about using my studio strobes.Is there a manual setting for exposure using a sync cord ( I know I need the attachment) and can the on camera flash be used to trigger the slaves in my studio strobes, again with a manual exposure setting.Thanks, SuzyQ

Are you going to be using a Nikon Speed light , or the Pop up flash on camera? Rmember the D-100 has no Flash sync terminal., The speed light does. Both will trip the strobes with manual settings, in slave mode.. In sync mode you will need the proper cables adapters and such.. I use Pocket Wizzards for Sync-Flash... On the D-100 Flash exposure compinsation is achieved by holding down the Flash exposure compinsation button and moving Main Command Dial... Flash exposure compinsation can be set at values between -3 EV (darker )and +1 EV (lighter) in Increments of 1/3 EV. The manual explains it well and is very easy to set.. The D-100 is an exceptional Camera and is very "user" friendly.. Good luck with it and enjoy...

Thank you for the reply! I was hoping to use the pop up flash to trigger Speedotron mono lights.One less cable and for that matter no cable attached to the camera would be a nice bonus.I will post a reply once I get the camera and test it.Thanks Again, SuzyQ 8) 8)
