    Buy another SB-600 and put the shackles on it. :)

    If you're asking budget minded, I think the Vivatar 285 is mentioned quite a bit. They will be fully manual and lack TTL (means to take a shot, chimp and adjust.... at each flash head, not a menu on camera). Commander mode is taking a walk on the plank.

    You're aware the D90 has CLS, correct?

    Vivitar 285HV's. About $90 each (new).

    At one point this speedlight was discontinued by Vivitar. Luckily for us it was reinstated and is again being produced.
