What is I TTL flash for Nikon?
The best part is that Nikon Speedlights are really easy to use, with a full automatic mode, called i-TTL, or Intelligent-Through-The-Lens metering. This means that the camera and flash will communicate with each other and figure out the best exposure that will balance both the subject and the ambient light.
Should I use TTL or manual flash?
Using TTL automatically adjusts the flash output for you as the distance between you and the camera changes. Manual flash is best in scenarios where you want the most control over the light source. It’s also useful if the distance between the subject and the flash doesn’t change rapidly.

What is TTL flash mode?
TTL means Through The Lens metering. TTL flash uses a series or infrared flash bursts before the flash actually fires. This flash information is returned back to the camera which then adjusts the flash power accordingly to set what it thinks is a well-balanced shot.
What is the difference between Ettl and TTL?
Original TTL flashes read the exposure of the overall image straight from the camera’s built-in exposure meter and set the flash strength off of that reading. By contrast, ETTL first fires a few flash bursts to read the exposure while the flash is lighting up the subject.

If you need HSS (high speed sync) then you want TTL. Manual flash is limited by your camera’s shutter speed. TTL and a compatible camera allow a way around this to shoot at speeds up to 1/8000s. If you’re just starting out HSS is not really something to worry about.
