I use my SB-910 and my SB-800 on light stands using commander all of the time. Commander allows you to set the light output of each of 4 channels.

The built-in flash controls both. I can set the ev on any if the groups from -3.0 to +3.0 to control the amount of light from each strobe. You will see that you also have multiple channels to keep your strobes and camera from triggering everyone else's at an event. (We had an off camera flash class in the local camera club that became a fiasco because the "instructor" and many of the students didn't know to use separate channels. In addition, some were using pocket wizards and were all on the same channel so they were constantly triggering each other's flashes. 3 of us were using Nikon's commander mode and we were each on separate channels so we didn't affect anyone.) The point is that you already have all of the flash control hardware you need. Pocket Wizards are nice if you camera and flash don't already have a solution that you've already paid for.
Here is a link to an article that includes Nikon and other brands.

Thanks so much for the reply. I now have a few options to work with

I use a PocketWizard Mini-TT1 on my camera and put my Nikon SB-700 flash on a PocketWizard Flex TT-5. Those units support TTL metering. They're kind of expensive but work flawlessly. I can adjust flash compensation on the camera and that will in turn vary the power output of the flash. I like the having the Mini-TT1 on the camera because of its low profile. It never gets in the way. You could get a Mini-TT1 and two Flex-TT5's for your set up.

Thanks for the information

Even though you don't need anything expensive, I would consider spending $17 more to buy the yn-568ex Nikon or $22 more to buy the yn-685 Nikon. Both would add High Speed Sync capability that the yn565ex does not have. The yn685 has a built in radio receiver that can be used with the Yongnuo yn622 series radio controller. If you will never add radio, just get the 568ex.

All of these will work just fine as Nikon CLS optical remotes, allowing remote power adjustments from any Nikon Commander flash.

Thanks for giving me a heads up on the other flashes.

I was recently taking some photos with OCF and a Nikon D3200 and ultra wide lens. Then I used the on camera flash plus off camera flash that I had attached to a $5 optical trigger. Worked like a charm. I held the OCF in my hand about a meter from the camera. Most of the pics turned out quite good.

Thanks, something to look into

I guess my other question is what if I want my SB-910 on the light stand, I guess I don't attach the sc-29 to the hot shoe. What is the advantage to attaching the sc-29 to the camera hot shoe.

I hope I put this question properly. I am new to OCF. I have a D610 and have a SB-910 flash using a SC-29 TTL Nikon Off Camera Shoe Cord. The flash is on a light stand and obviously attached to the hot shoe on the camera.
I was thinking of purchasing a Yongnuo YN-565EX Speedlight ( Don't need anything expensive, this is $80 at B&H)
How can I use this along with the SB-910? Will the commander mode work with the Yongnuo even though the flash on my D610 will not be up. I believe that is what triggers the OCF

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
