    So I have a Nikon D80 DSLR. I bought a SB-50 DX speedlight which I was told was compatible with the D80 only to find out that yes, it's compatible, but only as an external flash, no zoom, no TTL, nothing. Just another flash like I have in my camera. So now I am on the lookout for an SB-600 or more generic model that may be cheaper. Any suggestions from anyone? The SB-600 TTL function will work with the D80 correct?

    What are some good discount places to get equipment other than Hunt's, B&H, and adorama?

    Thanks guys!

    Yes, the SB-600 is compatible and it would be a great compliment to your D80

    Yup, the SB600 would be fully compatible and a great fit.

    I'd also recommend looking into the Nissin brand, Di866 for example - it works wirelessly as well and has a lot more power/options for the money.
