Command mode to fire Speedlight SB-600 remotely from Nikon D40x


Answers :

Sorry, the D40x does not have a commander mode. You'll need the SB-800 or SB-900 flash or the SU-800 commander. Alternatively, you can use the SC-28 sync cable.

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

I have a new Nikon D-60. Using Windows XP, I downloaded 255 pictures. Not having picked a folder to put them in, it by default put them all in My Pictures.

It says, "access denied" It also shows when you hover the mouse over the folder that the contents are 0 bytes. It will not let me delete the folder either, so I am stumped. U

Suddenly I can't control the aperture with the sub command dial in the manual mode. I have tried a "hard reset" and the two button reset to factory defaults.
