I just purchased the SB700 for my D7000. So far, so good. I actually did read the manual plus a few CLS articles.

However, I must have missed something basic, which happens a lot at my age. I have the flash sync and flash shutter speeds both set at 60 and it appears to work fine when the SB700 is mounted on the D7000. However, using the remote mode with the flash off the camera, it flashes but the curtain is still closed. I presume I've messed up some sync setting .

From reading my Nikonian blogs from the experts, most advice is to get the flash off the camera. I'm trying-really.

Is there some basic setting on the SB700 or D7000 that I have wrong. I have the flash on wireless SU4 setting when on remote.

Any advice appreciated.
