Re: sb 600

Switch camera off and remove batteries. Leave for half an hour. Re insert batteries switch on set to flask and hold to ear. Can hear a whistling [This is the Flash charging up] If you cannot -assume the flash unit has failed. Now go to the Manual - A full version is in a PDF file on the Disc. Check through that you are doing every thing correctly. If still no lick Nikon customer support will advise your next move. The likely hood will be that if the camera is over a year old they may offer a discount on a replacement. A repair is not likely or very pricey.

How to install a Nikon SB-700 AF Speedlight Flash for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

Basically, you put batteries into the flash, put it into the flash mount on the top of the camera, turn everything on, select a flash mode, and start shooting.
The flash comes with a detailed manual describing its operation. There is a section in the camera manual describing the various flash modes. The SB-700 is fully compatible with the Nikon iCLS system, which includes the D3100.

Since you asked a general question, I can only give you a general answer. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to ask them.

My flash doesn't work. It pops up and the lightning bolt symbol appears in the shooting info, but it doesn't fire and the camera takes a long-exposure picture. I don't think it's the plastic collar...

i`m afraid the flash-bulb is broken, you still can use external flash such as SB 600, SB 800 or SB 900
another option is using tripod while taking pictures without flash, but you have to be patient and not recommend for moving objects

hope this advice help you with your problem

What setting should the camera be on for an

That depends on the flash. If it's CLS-compatible (Nikon SB-400, SB-600, SB-800, and SB-900) you can use it in any exposure mode (except flash off, of course). The easiest flash mode is Auto-TTL, though some of the other modes will give you better control under certain situations.

If it's not CLS-compatible, then you'll have to take it off Auto-TTL. If the flash has a sensor, you can let the flash control itself (assuming it's at the same distance from the subject as the camera). Otherwise you'll have to go manual.

I dropped my camera now the flash is broken,

Sure. Nikon makes a line of what they call Speedlights. The SB-400, SB-600, SB-800, and SB-900 will give you full capabilities. Older models will give you somewhat less capabilities.

Third-party vendors also make flash units compatible with the D60.

External flash units tend to be more powerful than built-in flashes, which makes sense considering their size and additional batteries. They also move the light source further from the lens axis, reducing red-eye, improving shadows, etc. They also may allow bounce flash, which further softens the light.

From the Nikon site, do you have one of these flash units.
Support for the Nikon Creative Lighting System when using SB-900, SB-600, or SB-400 Speedlights, or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander
If so You set the flash mode to "comander" the pop up flash must be UP

This Video by Nikon shows how but you will have to read the manual to get a full description go to the flash section

How to shoot night scene with people dancing?

You could use flash. Depending on distance, you might want to go with one of Nikon's add on flash units. SB-600 is very cost effective.

You could also buy the excellent f1.8 50mm lens that Nikon makes. It's about $120 new. It's a prime lens (no zoom/telephoto) but it is one of the best lenses Nikon makes. It works very well in low light. There are also some other large aperature lenses, but cost goes up as f goes down!

How do I make my Nikon SB-600 flash work remotely

You need something to act as a commander. SB-800, SB-900, and the SU-800 all do this. Some cameras, such as the D300 and the D90 can also do this.

I have just recently boughta Nikon D60 and currently own a Tamron 28-300 lens and a 90 macro lens. I think that I want to buy a strob after a workshop I went to this past weekend. I want to be able to...

The SB-600 will probably do everything you want.

One caution: To use flash off your D60 you're going to need either an external sync cord or a wireless controller. The SB-800 (and the current SB-900) can be used as a controller, the SB-600 can't. But the controller goes on the camera, so you'll end up needing two flashes.

Command mode to fire Speedlight SB-600 remotely from Nikon D40x

Sorry, the D40x does not have a commander mode. You'll need the SB-800 or SB-900 flash or the SU-800 commander. Alternatively, you can use the SC-28 sync cable.

Flash out of sync

I just had mine fixed by nikon and it seems as though the problem would come back every now and then. my current solution is to switch over to Manual mode and turn AF assist, AF illumination, and ISO control to "ON" and then then shoot a few shots. Then switch metering to centerweight. take a few shots, it should work correctly, then switch back to AUTO. after that, the flash should fire as normal. I just received my body back about 2 weeks ago, so i hope my "bad batch" flash unit was replaced with a known good one. if not, i don't know what to do.
