I've been looking at the various sellers of the RF-603 on EBay and while some do not say which flashes are compatible, others say specifically that the SB-600 is NOT compatible.

Anyone have any info on why the SB-600 is not compatible?

Has anyone actually tried to use a SB-600 with the RF-603? Did it work or did it fry the flash (or camera) :eek: ?

Though I have not tried using it, I've read somewhere that the reason they say it was not compatible with the rf-602 is because it won't 'wake' an SB-600 from standby mode, if the rf-603 is the same it may be that reason.

This is my understanding. You can get into the menu of the SB600 and disable the sleep mode. Im considering getting a few sets of the radio triggers.

FWIW have recently received a few RF603s work fine with SB600. Have yet to use in a real photo shot but in testing had no issues. I too have read it simply won't wake up the SB600, but as another poster said that can be disabled in the menus at the cost of a little battery life.
