There are many reports out there (B and H website for instance) of the SB 600 used with the SU-4, but all the references I could find are in relation to DSLR cameras. I was curious if I could use this set up for the V1. I do not want to purchase the SU-4 if it does not facilitate use with the V1 and SB-600 combo. I continue to use the SB-600 with my D-200 , just wanted to know if I could extend its usefulness to use it as a slave with the V1.
The SB-600 is too big and heavy and has an incompatible hot shoe for use on the V1 as a conventional flash.
You can trigger the SB-600, but you cannot use CLS. You can only use the SB-600 in manual mode I believe. And you have to put the Flas on the Nikon 1 into manual mode too. At least that's the way I remember having to set it up to get it to work.
