D2X & AF Assist with SB800

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR' started by shutterbugin, Dec 7, 2005.

  1. Connect the SB800. Set the D2x to AF-S.
    SB800 AF assist throws a beam (pretty clearly noticable especially in low light).

    However I did not notice this when using the SB800 and AF-C.
    Can you have AF assist in AF-C ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Krish,
    I'm afraid AF assist is not available in AF-C, only AF-S. Confirmed.
  3. Thanks for confirming.
