Hi Joonphoto,

It is a lot of information to try to explain step by step on what you need to know. I think your best option is to read BOTH MANUALS and have your camera and flash ready to use while reading the instructions. You can use the pop-up on the D70 as a Master on channel 3 group A. Then you need to set the SB-800 as the remote and also set it to channel 3 and group A.

After reading the manuals and you still don't understand you can go to Nikon and order a DVD called "The Speed of Light" it will kind of show you what can be done with the 800 & 600 speedlights. You will find it is not really difficult after you see the DVD.

In short, the camera's flash needs to be set to commander mode. This is done through the menu system. You then set the SB800 to wireless mode. The SB800 needs to be able to see the flash from the camera. This is detailed in length in the manuals.
