    No worries. To capitalise on the TTL features of modern flashes you need one designed for the camera. In your case that only leaves two serious options the SB-800 and the SB-600. Anything else would be pointless as the onboard flash is fairly good already.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Should be the same flash. USA has a Nikon USA warranty; import (also called grey-market) does not but is covered by B&H (usually).
