Set the release mode on the camera to one of the remote modes.

Look in the camera manual under either "Shooting Mode" or "Release Mode."

I want to use my nikon d80 with my sb600 and as a infrared remote


The Nikon D80's shutter can be released via handheld "IR" or infrared remote. You can buy them online or in most camera shops. The Nikon branded one will cost the most, but really doesn't perform a whole lot better than the $5 third party versions. The nice thing about IR remotes is that only a transmitter is needed. There's a built in IR receiver on the front of the camera body, and as long as it is not obstructed - or too far from the transmitter, it will work fine.

The SB600 will fire if setup to work correctly when the shutter is released "normally" - triggering with a IR remote will not affect the SB600 flash whether mounted on the camera or if in "commander mode". The D80 manual has details on pg 38 to operate in both the instant and time delayed IR operation modes and should be consulted as Nikon does not allow copy and paste from the manual - and they make use of graphics for button functions.

When distances are too great for the IR remote, you'll need to go the route of an RF or radio frequency remote instead. Many of these will work at distance up to and even beyond 100 yards. They consist of a transmitter and receiver. The receiver can be mounted on the hot shoe of the camera or tethered via cable to the camera body. This is not the question you asked about, so I won't go into further detail - but only mention it as another way of doing the same thing from greater distances or when you can not be in front of the camera to access the IR receiver on the D80 body.

If this was helpful, please rate it as such. Thanks and good luck!

How do you make the ML-L3 wireless remote controller for Nikon D7000 work?


Press the release mode dial lock release and turn the release mode dial to the remote control position.

Full details are in the "Release Mode" section of the manual (page 77 in my copy).

I have a nikon d5000, and I need the remote control instructions.


Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

For full details, look in the camera manual under "Release Mode" (page 65 in my copy of the D5000 manual).

Hi, There were no instructions for the Infrared Remote (ML-L3) for my Nikon D80. What are the remote shooting modes?


Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the two remote mode. The quick-response mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back for triggering the shutter.

For full details on using the remote, refer to the "Choosing a Shooting Mode" section in your camera manual.

How do you set up the digital remote control


If you're using a wired remote, you don't have to do anything. Just use the button on the remote instead of the shutter release button on the camera.

If you're using an infrared remote, set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. The quick-response mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed moded gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

D80 err message . what can I do to fix without sending the cam in? I have already did the reset and nothing so far is working..


Page 132 of the D80 manual states the ERR is a camera malfunction. My suggestion is to rest the camera, see if that helps you will find those instructions on page 129 in the D80 manual. Sometimes removing the batter then pressing the shutter release numerous times will free up any static buildup. If none of that works it is off to Nikon.

Nikon d80 won't expose sometimes on start up


It almost sounds like your lens is not solidly on the body. I remember having a similar problem with a lens. Try starting the camera on A or S priority mode and see it you still have the problem. And check the lens mount.

D80 shutter issue


contactjoni,
Your shutter will stick if it gets dirty or dust gets in the camera, a reputable camera shop can inspect the shutter, the sensor for dust & dirt and can clean it for you. If the battery is low while shooting the shutter can also stick on longer exposures.
