    Use a PSAM mode. As far as I'm aware, the pop-up will always pop up with the PhD (Push here, Dummy) modes that need flash.

    Well since there is no TTL communication between the flash and the camera with that combination there is no way for the camera to even know that theres a flash on there. You will need an sb-400/600/800 for that

    auto mode on a nikon d80... in "beyond the basics"

    lol

    By the way, I know know how much power the Sunpak has but you're likely to kill a digital camera by throwing random flashes for film cameras on it.
