Hi I just picked up a D200 with a AF-S DX 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 G IF-ED lens,I upgraded from a CoolPix 5000 :D...... Anyways can I use my old SB-50DX flash with this new D200 ??? until I save up to get the SB-800, also is there any functions I will not be able to perform with this flash ?

Hi Soupnazi,

Read on page 178 of your D200 manual. It seams your SB-50DX can only be used in Manual mode. TTL will not work on the D200 with the SB-50DX. According to the manual if you set the SB-50DX to TTL the camera shutter-release button will lock and no photo can be taken.

When you purchase a flash I suggest you pay a little more and get the SB-800, I have both the 600 & the 800 and I'm telling you that the 800 is far superior to the 600. You get exactly what you pay for when it comes to the two flashes.

Thanks Ronnie..... after I posted the question ,I also found my answer the manual.... I definitely amgoing with your suggestion on the SB-800 .... I will be adding the SB-800 in the coming weeks to my D200.

Thanks Again
