I have Nikon D70s, and have SB-600. I've been reading the forum and various websites, but was unable to find the answer.
When you use the flash off the camera via the wireless mode, how do you adjust the flash amount? People say, that they use the wireless and had the flash at full power, 1/4 power, etc. How can you change that? I can't get to manual power when I am on wireless mode.
If the answer is you have to change settings from the camera, then when I get my second flash, and if I want to have one flash at full power and the second one at 1/4 power, how can I do that?

I do not own a D70s, so cannot be too sure of my suggestions.
Check your D70s manual under commander mode for instructions. You should be able to set the remote SB600 in either manual mode or one of the available TTL modes from the camera. If you select manual mode, then you will be able to select M1/1 (full power) to M1/64 (six stops down), all from the camera. If you select TTL mode, the metering system will determine power needed.
The D70s can control just one group of remote speedlights and all in that group must operate identically. If you can afford another SB600 for use as a remote and an SB800 or SU800 as an on-camera master, then you can place the remotes in two different groups and set any lighting ratio you wish, TTL or manual.
Hope this helps,
