    Does anyone know if Nikon do a course or 1 day training session in using the D300, think it may help me. Got to admit to being confused a bit by all the possible settings.

    Also can I fire my SB600 remotely using the D300 flash as the trigger ?

    See www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d300/index.shtml

    For remote flash with SB600 see this video (uses SB800 in the video, but SB600 will be similar). See http://www.photoanswers.co.uk/Video...ques/How-to-use-off-camera-flash/?&R=EPI-1467

    thom has made a D300 user guide which explains everything. See http://www.bythom.com/nikond300guide.htm

    Bill nikon do do courses, got an e-mail from em asking if I was interested in attending. Dont have the mail at hand but will PM you some details when I get home from work this eve if your interested.
    The SB600 can be fired off camera with the D300, I use it and it works great. Menu item E3 set to commander mode, I normally reduce the on board flash to a lower level, set the SB 600 to work in slave ( read the manual as I can never mind what to do , I have to read the manual every time LOL) and fire away.
    Bear in mind you have to make sure the channel is set to the same on the camera and flash and you need to use the on board flash to trigger the SB600.
    Does that make any sense, hope it helps

    Bill - digital depot in stevenage run courses on nikons in their studio you may want to give them a call as to when the next one is running. I believe Martin is the guy that handles the courses
