    how do i calibrate the sb900 to work with the d200 wirelessly!!

    i did have the flash triggering, but the timing seemed to be out, now i've managed to sod it up so the flash don't go off at all!!

    also does anyone know a good tripod/unbrella stand which i can use with the sb900

    Thanks

    make sure the built in flash in the D200 is set to Commander (it'll be an option in the flash settings menu), and make sure you DON'T have the SB900 set to SU-4. The misfiring is probably because of that.. SU-4 mode is an optical slave that's triggered by any flash output, and the way CLS fires flashes is with a monitor, or pre-flash. The pre-flash sets off the optical slave, causing the SB900 to fire early. Could be something else.. but try that..
