    Default Off-camera flash Nikon SB600 wirelessly

    HI
    I have the Nikon D80, with the speedlight SB600.
    How to fire the SB600 off camera wirelessly, without popping open the built-in flash?

    I managed to fire it wirelessly, if the built-in flash is pop opened.

    I want to do something like this set-up, but with the built-in flash closed:

    the guy says he has to use his hands to cover the built-in flash. ;-(

    any advise?

    using hands to cover it is not a proper way, the built in flash has to send the signal to the remote flash.

    your options, arrange according to the cost, from ex to cheap:
    get a SU-800 (wireless, ttl enable)
    get a ttl cable (none wireless, ttl enable)
    get a set of (china made) radio wireless trigger (wireless, no ttl)
    get a hotshoe adapter and sync cable (none wireless, no ttl)

    Er D80 can act as commander mode wad. So u make it work as commander and ur SB600 as slave(If im not mistaken, SB600 Supports CLS, Only does not support being a commander).

    Does a piece of unexposed negative work too?
