    From what I can tell...yes, I think it should work.

    You should not have to buy anything. Just set the sb-600 to wireless mode and fire away.

    The D60 does not have flash commander mode so he will need something. I just ordered a RF-602 wireless radio transmitter set for my D40 in order to use my flashes wirelessly.

    I ordered it from this site but expect to wait 2 - 3 weeks if you decided to do that, they ship from China and it takes a while.

    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.28509 (It says for D90/D5000 but that is just for the shutter release it will work with your flash)

    What you posted should work but its more expensive, not sure how they compare to each other though.

    Yes, but you would need two of them. One on the camera and one at the flash.


    Also, there is a big difference between the first device you linked to, and the PW Plus II. The Nikon device will allow you to control the remote flash and it gives you TTL (automatic flash metering)...so the flash will set the proper power level to match the camera's settings.

    With something like the Plus II (or the other triggers that people have mentioned) they only tell the flash when to fire, not how much power to use. So with these devices, you would have to put the flash (and likely the camera) into manual mode and figure out the exposure yourself. It's not all that hard, but it can be confusing at first.

    Is that umbrella kit any good? I just got two speed lights and am looking to get some stands/umbrellas. Would that be a good set to get or would I be better off building my own?

    Just FYI Nikon DSLR's use I-TTL not TTL. A TTL flash can ONLY be used in Manual mode and will not "AUTO" flash. You will have to set all the settings.

    The SB-600 doesn't have a built in IR sensor?? WOW I did not know this. I thought it did.

    It's a good kit to start with but if you want the good stuff: Matthews | Century C Stand - 8' (2.4m) | 339561 | B&H Photo Video you'll spend a bit more money.
