Wondering if I can get some (timely) help. I used search and tried Google with no luck.
I'm trying to trigger my d90 using pocket wizard plus ii's and a cord I purchased that says it should work for this purpose. It has the 3.5mm plug for the PW on one end, an on/off switch in the middle (to keep camera 'awake') that I got from ebay but looks exactly the same as this one (and is likely the exact same) *Link Removed*
I'm having trouble getting the camera to fire remotely though, even though I'm (hopefully) following PW's instructions on their site and manual.
I have one PW connected to the cord, and the other end in the "GPS" input on the camera. I've tried using all the channels, and even channels one away from each other as you do in a relay set up.
I know some signal is getting through, however, because when I press the remote (not connected) PW, the red lights are glowing and the camera's lens starts searching for focus. Something is getting through, but the shutter won't actuate.
Is there an in-camera setting I need to change? I don't think I have to set it to the wireless remote setting, at least that doesn't seem to work.
Any suggestions? I actually would like to be able to trigger the second camera (D90) from my d700 so that when the d700 takes a pic, the d90 does as well. I believe I would just put a PW on top of the d700 to do that, but have to figure out how to get the d90 to remote fire first.
Thanks for any help you can give!
