    Hello,

    I have a D70 that I bouhgt in Spain. Now I'm planning to buy the flash SB-600 for it from the States. Do you know if I will have any issues of incompatibilities because the 2 products are from different countries?

    Thanks!

    I don't think there will be compatibility issues between the camera and the flashgun. But don't take my word for it. Ask Nikon!

    The chargers may be another matter. Euro nets are 220-240 volts, US nets 110-120 volts, afaik. A charger geared to one may not function (well) in the other system. Or in yours, wherever you are. Check the specs.

    The charger I got with my D70 here in the states is an auto dual voltage and that seems to be the norm lately with electronic products. I agree that it would be best to check.

    You should be fine getting the flash from a different country. The cameras are made to the same specifications in all the countries they are manufactured/sold in.
