mkbee1 Silver Member Nikonian since 26th Nov 2012

I've tried to set up my D90 and SB600 to work wirelessly, but, after reading the Nikon factory manual, the Nikonian D90 manual, and calling NIKONUSA, where I was told "You can't do that", I finally got it to work around corners, but only with the on-board flash raised, and set on manual power at 1/128 power, camera in commander mode, with proper channel set.

I am thinking that is essentially an optical slave function, and wonder if anyone can give me a simple, step-by-step tutorial on how to use the SB600 and D90 without raising the built-in flash? Is it even possible? Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks;

Carl
