Kind of an obscure question, but I'm hoping someone has some experience. I have aSunpak 4000 that I've been using with my cp995 without a problem. This new I-TTL feature on the D70 leaves me with the feeling that something isn't going to be compatible when the camera trys to communicate with the flash. I am just hoping Auto-TTL works because there are only two manual options. The D70 is on the way so I haven't tested anything and wanted to check around first to make sure there are no problems using the two items.



Thanks in advance!

Auto and TTL are two separate things. The former will work; the latter will not.

Oh thanks, as can see, I chose my forum name wisely. Can you give a brief explanation of what you mean? On the flash it has only three settings. TTL, and two manuals (Full and 1/16 power). Normally I leave it on TTL and let the camera and flash figure it out (thats auto to me hehe).



Thanks again.

Usually there's a separate "Auto" setting on the flash that determines the needed power level in-flash; not all units have that, though. Since the D70 doesn't work with old-style TTL or D-TTL, that means that your Sunpak will only work in manual with the D70.
