Thread: SB600 external flash seems stuck with manual zoom...

    Default SB600 external flash seems stuck with manual zoom...

    Hi all,

    I can't seem to get my SB-600 flash out of manual zoom mode. From what I read in the manual, the power zoom function can automatically adjust the flash according to the camera's zoom. I would like to activate the power zoom mode. Would really appreciate advice. I tried holding down the "zoom" button but that didn't work. Could it be one of the custom settings?

    P.S. the camera used is Nikon D80

    Argh, I really asked a very newbie qn.

    To quote the manual:
    "When using the wide-flash adapter, the zoom-head position is automatically set to 14mm and the power zoom function is deactivated."

    So I put back the wide-flash adaptor and it's not stuck with manual zoom alr :P

    Thanks catchlights for leading me to the answer!
