It should work if you use channel 3. It is in your manual.

Is that channel 3 using the SB600? Because other people are saying that as it has not got Commander features, then it is not able to be used remotely?:?:

I have a D200 and the remote SB-600 has to be set to channel 3 as well as the camera for the remote to function. On page 61 of your SB-600 manual it explains to you that on a D70s commander mode it has to be set to channel 3 and group A. If the correct channel and group is not used the SB-600 will not fire.I'm pretty sure the D50 would be the same.

Please do Read the bottom of page 61 of the SB-600 manual.

The D50's flash cannot be used as a commander, period. No if's and's or but's. A d50 can only fire a SB600 off camera with a SB800 attached and in commander mode.

Well said Mr. Rjseeney,I wasn't sure if it was like a D70. My SB-600 was bought before the D50 was out so it was not in my manual.
