    IIRC, you probably may still be able to use TTL mode to a certain extent. This I'm not very sure, so if you have both the camera and the flash, try it out and see how well it works.

    as for the non-TTL auto, this I'm not very sure.

    Manual mode is definitely a yes, but you'll have to really understand the GN number, distance and how the calculation works.

    hey Zac,

    Thanks for the speedy reply. Will try to hook it up and try.

    Hope that it will not burnout the circuitry in the D90.....

    Cheers
