While trying to help a friend with their D3000, I could not determine if the camera is capable of working in "Commander Mode" with a SB 600 flash unit. If so, where is the menu item to set it up accordingly? Thanks for any assistance.
As noted the camera does not have a 'commander' mode for the pop-up flash. Your friend will need to buy an SB-900/700 or used SB-800 Speedlight. All of these models have a 'Master/Commander' mode. The SB-900/800 units can control 3 remote groups and the SB-700 only controls 2 remote groups.
That is more or less what I had assumed. Thanks to all who responded. This forum is a great resource. I don't have the manual for the D3000 camera and trying to prove a negative can be difficult. My own cameras: a D300 and a D7000 have no problem with this feature. Thanks again.
I think you can download view only copies without registering. If you register then you can download printable copies too.
