    I bought an SB-600 for my D40 and want to be able to use it on a flash bracket? Is there a way to setup the D40 to fire the flash wireless? I have the wireless shutter remote for the camera which would make me think it would be able to send the flash signal to the lense?

    Can this be achieved? I searched the net and can't seem to find any info?

    Thanks

    technically, yes... with a Su-4 slave attached to the sb-600... but then you're looking at the price of an sb-800 (which has an SU-4 built in).

    edward... for reference, the su-4 mode on the sb-800 detects the strobe from any flash for example... (even any ol'e point and shoot) and from my experience exposes very nicely in all sorts of situations. of course, theres no substitute for the real thing, but it DOES work
