Yes. You can use the flash in auto or manual mode by setting the camera to manual shutter speed within the x-sync range and then selecting the aperture prescribed by the flash guide number or the displayed automatic f-stop on the flash. The flash can provide auto exposure with the camera in manual mode, but you need to be aware of the amount of ambient light which will not cause any exposure corrections by the camera in this mode. Another alternative is to select Aperture preferred automatic on the camera and the f-stop shown for the auto flash settings. This will allow the camera to vary the shutter speed but may cause long exposures if the camera is not sensitive to real-time flash readings.

SOURCE: Nikon D80. Vivitar 4600 Flash unit

That particular unit is probably not a good choice for the D80 because the trigger voltage (the electricity which flows from the flash through the camera circuits to fire the flash) is 19.5 volts, according to http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html - this could possibly damage your camera electronics.

You don't have to stick with Nikon brand Speedlights, but get a modern flash which says it is I-TTL compatible for Nikon.

Nikon d300s


I've had this happen occasionally with my D-90. It has always been a problem with the battery not making proper contact. And, I've always been able to fix it by either reseating the battery or replacing it with a freshly charged one. It's possible that the battery is bad and may not be accepting a charge.

DOES IT WORK WITH NIKON D300S


Yes, though it's an older flash unit and cannot be used in the iTTL mode. The "Other Flash Units" section of the D300s manual (page 350 in my copy) lists the modes in which the flash may be used. Another concern is that the flash may not work well with certain lenses. The "Usable lenses and cameras" section of the SB-29 manual (page 5) discusses this.

If you need manual, you can download the D300s manual from
http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16525/kw/D300S/r_id/116678
and the SB-29 manual from

I took the memory card out of my coolpix 4600 and put it into a vivitar camera when i inserted the memory card back into my coolpix cannot get the camera to work or turn off


Did you take pictures with the vivitar camera and saved it on the same memory card? If so, that might be the problem. Delete those files taken by vivitar (copy them to your computer if it is important before deleting) then try the memory card again on your coolpix.

Price for nikon d300


D300 can be found scarcely new. It has been replaced with a newer model D300S. The D300S incorporates video and both SD and CF capability for extended uses of writing the photos. One card can be used as backup, or one can be used to write RAW files and the other JPEGs. Some slight changes were added to the menu {active D-lighting}, and the D300S also was give a slight boost to 7FPS. Used D300 on the market go for $900 - $1300 depending on its history.
