I am using Nikon gear for last 15+ years. I am having D60. I also have SB27 speedlight from my earlier gear. Does SB 27 work well like it did with my earlier N70?.
I am having issues using it with D60.

Thanks
Sunil

Hi Sunil,

Welcome to Nikonians!
The SB-27 was designed for Film cameras using Film TTL Flash Control like your N70.
The D60 uses i-TTL Flash Control which is not compatible with Film TTL Flash Control. Therefore to use the SB-27 on your D60 you will be limited setting the SB-27 in Non-TTL Auto Flash Control (I am not sure it can be set with the SB-27 mounted in the hotshoe of a DSLR) or Manual Flash Control and the Camera set in Manual Exposure mode and Manual ISO mode.

BTW:

Please fill in your last name in your User Profile.
Thanks in advance.

Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
