Hello Nikonians,
Today I'm thrilled to own a brand new SB-28 to go with my F3, F801 (N8008) and F60 (N60).

After reading the manual, it seems that the SB-28 has only few capabilities to go with the F60. I was a bit disappointed but never mind. The power it has justifies the price paid anyway, plus the bounce and swivel .

One big annoyance is that I may have to set the aperture setting manually on the SB-28 instead of letting it calculate automatically while using 'Program' mode on the F60. I'm still in the process of digesting the manual but initial understanding of the manual says as the above. Is it true?

Or can somebody cheer me up a bit by confirming that the SB-28 can be just as simple to use as the built-in speedlight. I just spent money equivalent to another brand new F60 or F65 (N60/ N65)body

Thanks a lot.
