    You need a big round wizard...

    Lol you need a wireless transmitter like pocket wizards or something like that. You also need an PC adapter for the SB-600 because it doesn't have a PC cord input.

    take a look at the CTR-301p that i have in my signature.

    you can get one transmitter and 2 receiver for about 35 $ on ebay

    there are not ITLL but they will work on manual.

    Unfortunately the on-board flash on the d3000 cannot be used in "commander mode," to drive a slave flash.

    The onboard D3000 strobe can be used to optically trigger any number of optically triggered slave speedlights, or speedlights that have had an optical trigger accessory added to the speedlight's foot.

    Optical triggering is pretty much limited to line-of-sight and can become problematic in direct sunlight.

    Even better is radio triggering of an off camera speedlight but as menttioned, TTL capablility is lost and both exposure and strobe output must be manually adjusted.

    Dude, do some research.

    Along the way you will discover other very useful information you didn't know, you didn't know.

    It's a wired way to do off camera flash, but the camera and the flash must have PC ports or accessory PC ports. http://flashzebra.com/short_pc_sync/index.shtml

    The design of the PC connector is very poor. It is to easy to tweak it out of shape, making the connections unreliable.

    They used to make a special tool to try and re-form the connecter to improve the connections. http://flashzebra.com/0072.shtml

    No sweat off my brow if you're not smart enough to take advatange of what is usually the most productive part of doing research.

    hmmm. surf the internet and possibly find false info OR easily ask hundreds of actual people that have a greater chance of knowing the info.

    why dont you go do something with your life besides post on this site all day. you are pretty close to 7000 posts. that's something to be proud of.
