I have a Nikon D40. I'm planning to buy a SB-600 flash. I herd that you can use the SB-600 flash remotely through the camera. Can the D40 do this? Thanks.

Sorry, but the D40 does not have a wireless flash commander mode, you will need to get a SU-800 or a SB-800 to be able to do it.

I know on the Sb-800 you can set it to SU-4 mode and fire it with the manual flash mode on your camera.... any camera just so long there is no preflash. not to sure about the 600 though.

Yup, the D80's built-in pop-up flash has commander mode, so you can use the SB-600 remotely with it with full i-TTL support. For the D40 if you just want off-camera flash and an arm's length is ok, you can get an SC-28/29 cable. One end goes on the hot shoe and the flash goes on the other end. I have one of these too and it works pretty well with the D40.
