Wow! I am totally surprised and pleased.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Altura Photo Studio Pro Flash Kit for NIKON DSLR Bundle with 2pcs I-TTL Flash AP-N1001, Dual Wireless Flash Trigger Set and Accessories (Electronics)
When I received this kit, I was amazed! I needed an affordable TTL flash for my Nikon D5200. The TTL function works very well; adjusting to camera changes in ISO, F-stop and zoom settings. You can see the changes real-time on the LED display. Test shots are properly lighted and not washed out. I do need to work more to understand manual settings and adjustments. The flash works as well as the expensive ($450) Nikon SB-600 flash! [Note: I borrowed a friend's Nikon flash for comparison.] My Nikon D5200 built in flash will fire the flash units remotely (without a wireless receiver) using the S1 setting. The LED display makes changing settings easy and exact. I will admit there is tricky figuring out all the configurations and using the flash with the JJC wireless transceivers. The manuals are minimal but after connecting the units differently a few times, I was able to fire both flashes using the transmitter on my camera. You can also remotely fire your camera using a receiver and cable included in the kit. The soft diffusers work well if you don't have another way to deflect or soften the light. Each flash comes with a padded case large enough for extra batteries or small accessories. I can not be more pleased!

I was amazed too about how this flash works with my D5100. But then I buyed a D5200 and it do not works in TTL mode. I do not understand what is the problem. I have both cameras and with the D5100 works very well, but not with my D5200.

I am having the same problem. I just bought these, and they each work great when they are on my d5200, and when try to use the wireless they do not work. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?

I tried several different settings, but couldn't get the transmitter to fire the strobes (using the camera...the test button fired them just fine). I thought it might be the contacts on the transmitter since the strobes work fine when they're attached to the hot shoe. but i would love to try the settings you used (the transmitter doesn't work with either the D750 or the D7000).
