    No need to buy anything else. The D80 will handle that very well, the explanation in the manual can be a liitle confusing but just set it up and practice. You'll have it aced inside an hour.

    Yes, you use the Nikon CLS to fire the two SB-600's. Put the camera in Commander
    mode and you'll be all set. I know with the D200 I can control each flash independently
    from each other. It is pretty awesome. I have heard that the SB800 will control up to
    3 SB-600's? Not fully sure about that part, but I know it will work very well for you.

    Ahh not quite. You can control unlimited number of thigns, but in a limited set of groups.

    THe D80 and D200 can control multiple groups via CLS providing the flash sensor can see the D80's flash. The SB-800 or the dedicated wireless commander can control an additional group beyond what the cameras can.

    Search through the manual for wireless CLS or commander mode. The SB-600s need to be set in remote mode.

    Most likely you can if the on camera flash can be detected by the Sbs. If needed place a reflector above the camera to throw enough light to control the flash.

    Also, you can control the ratio (lighter and darker sides) by having the Sbs at different distances from the subject.

    lemme try to explain what i want to do. i want to have 2 flashes set up one to the left one to the right and have them fire when i take a picture. or have one on camera, and place another to the left or right and have them fire at the same time, but have the one on the camera not be as strong as the one to the left or right. or maybe even place one behind the subject to bounce off the backdrop, and have one to the left or right. and have them fire at the same time.
