Hi Darlene,

Yes!

>button on my 600 to push to ttl as I do on the 700,

That is because the SB-600 doesn't have Commander mode built in.


>I still need to have the 600 not in ttl or ttlb mode but in the
>commander sort of mode...right?

No. The SB-600 should be set in Remote mode when it is used off camera.
You then set the control mode (TTL or M) in the Commander be it your built-in Speedlight or your SB-700 in Master (Commander) mode.

Yes!

Yes! The lower you set the power level, the shorter the flash duration (t.1) ( for future reference and for strobe users reading this: this is true for Speedlights and a few strobes, though when the power is reduced on most strobes, the flash duration increases (gets longer) ) .

>But in my meek little voice,,,,i am right, aren't i marty?
>(smile)

You nailed it!!!
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
