    I have limited experience with the SB800 altho I have been successful in using it off-camera as the remote.

    Now It seems to be stuck in this screen pictured below and I can't get it back to the basic screen.

    Any help?
    any link to good tutorial on the SB800 (the manual is terrible)
    thanks in advance.

    hold "sel" - select - for a couple seconds, you get a menu (the blocks will be highlited) of iso options, lcd briteness, AF illumination, etc. scroll up until you see the box with 2 squiggly lines and 2 flash icons inside. select this. you will get the following options:

    off
    master
    master rpt (repeat)
    remote
    su-4

    select "off" and you'll have the basic/dedicated menu.
    hope this helps.

    Thanks a lot.
    That worked.
    The manual is mum on the fact that the basic menu doesn't
    appear when master or remote are active.
    Thanks again.

    cheers, no worries!

    i found i was overwhelmed at first with the 800, but once you play with it for a while (rather than reading the manual - it's lacking) you get pretty fluent with it's modes and features. trial and error prevails sometimes.
