The SCA 3083 Digital offers a choice of three different slave modes.
1/ Slave Trigger Function for Creative Lighting
This mode allows any Metz flash that uses the SCA3002, SCA3000, and SCA 300 system to be used externally in manual or automatic mode to add light to dark areas of a scene. The slave can be triggered by any light pulse.
2/ Slave Trigger Function with Pre-Flash Suppression
For digital cameras without a flash connection (hot shoe or PC connection) which works with a monitor pre-flash. This prevents accidental firing of the flash until the camera is ready to take the picture. The SCA 3083 will communicate when to fire with the Metz flash from the built-in camera flash.
3/ Cordless TTL or Automatic Flash Control Slave Mode
In this instance, no setting on the slave flash is needed. You just need a Metz controlling flash connected to the camera. The controlling flash will communicate to the slave flash or multiple slave units. The SCA 3083 digital slave adapter evaluates the signals from the controlling flash, then the slave flash will fire at the right moment with the precise light output.
