Hey guys. Been a while since I've posted here. Haven't done as much cam trapping as I'd like, but I such is life, right? I did set up my camera trap again this spring for the rainbow smelt migration (to see what was eating them). The migration is winding down so I recently moved the set to try and capture grouse on a drumming log. The set is in a forested location and in order to get the right amount of ambient light I was looking for, I knew I was going to need to use Aperture priority on the D3100.

I have yet to get a grouse on camera, but instead keep getting raccoons and feral cats ( :| ). I'm noticing that my SB-28s fire at least twice during the long exposures, which creates really ANNOYING ghosting. I checked the set today and found what would have been a great shot taken last night at blue hour (around 9:20PM), but the flash fired a second time, ghosting the raccoon that was walking across the log.

I'm using a set of Vello FreeWave Fusion Wireless Flash Triggers. Has anyone experienced this problem before?

I did get lucky the other day and a it looks like my flashes fired just once during the 30 second exposure. See below.

Hi Tommy,

Sure. Nikon D3100 with 18-55 mm kit lens at 18 mm. ISO 800, f/11, 30 sec exposure. Two Nikon SB-28s, one camera right about 2.5 ft away, 3.5 ft high at 1/2 power and one camera left about 5-6 ft toward the end of the log and 12-14 inches above ground at 1/4 power.
