A friend of mine owns the Nikon SB-22s Speedlight, which I was thinking of purchasing for travel with my CP8800. According to the Nikon web site, the SB-22s will only function "in none-TTL Automatic control mode (using built in flash sensor)" with the CP8800.

What does this mean?

It means that the flash will operate as any generic flash with "auto"mode. The camera hotshoe (or PC sync port) trigger the flash, one way communication.
The flash fires, and stop whenit's ownsensor senses that's enough, corresponding to the aperture setting on the flash. The camera aperture must mach the aperture set on the flash auto mode to correctly expose the subject.
You fix the speed,the combination speed-aperturewill affect the non flash exposed scene (background)
