Hi,

I am trying to use my D90 as a commander to trigger my SB600 remotely in manual mode. The reason I am not using TTL is because I am trying to use it with my Lester Dine macro which is an AIS lens so it wont meter with my D90. However, I can not get it to work, is this even possible?
Settings:
D90 in commander mode set to --
Group A set to M
Built in flash is up

SB600 set to wireless mode


If i mount the SB600 in the hot shoe, it works fine, but when I set it up as a remote, the flash mode indicator in the control panel blinks (can someone tell me what this means in general, I looked through my manual and could not find it ) and the camera does not even take a picture. So, am I doing something wrong or is what I want not possible?

Thanks.
