What the best flash for d80? s sb 800 & 900 compatible for it?


The best flash for YOUR D80 is the one that best suits YOUR needs. Both the SB-800 and SB-900 are compatible with the D80. So is the SB-600, which is lighter and smaller.

Hello! When I attach the flash on my Nikon D200, it fires even while I'm focusing or just when I touch the trigger button. Any ideas? The flash is not firing like that while not on the camera.


The flash on the camera is being used to throw light for the lens to focus, unless the flash has a setting / the camera has a setting to fix this.... I would assume this as a normal behaviour.

Just to be sure that i'm thinking the same lines as you - your flashes that happen while focusing will be short bursts and when you take the final image you still have a significantly higher powered flash.

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 http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d300s/index.html

Then look at them all :)

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.

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.

Unwanted flash fire in nikonD200


Hi, I had the same sort of problem. It started with erratic small flashes but then evolved to the SB-800 not regonizing the D200 at all. The result of this is that I only get TTL and not TTL+BL+FP functionallity.
To solve this I cleaned the hotshoe on the D200 with all purpose cleaner for electical appliances (CRC 5-56). This gave minor improvment. Then I adjusted the spings to the left and right on the hotshoe on the D200 to press harder against the flash's connection (which I suppose is the grounding). Now everything works again.

Best regards,

Marcus

Vivitar 636 and Nikon D200


You won't be able to use older TTL flashguns with the D200. Since the D70, all nikon cameras have used "iTTL", and earlier DSLRs (eg D100) have used "D-TTL". Neither of these are compatible with the older TTL system used on film cameras. The newer SB-400/600/800 flashguns are all ok, and Sigma and Metz both produce iTTL compatible flashguns. The new flashguns will work on old cameras but not vice versa.

I know this is annoying, but there were good technical reasons why Nikon changed the TTL standards.

If the 636 has an A mode (non TTL) this should work ok, otherwise it will only work in manual (if it has a manual mode).
