SB-50DX FLASH (or similar) on D50

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Brian Sullivan, Apr 24, 2006.

  1. I see varying opinions on whether non i-ttl flashes like the NIKON
    SB-50DX will work and be usable (maybe two different things) on the
    Nikon D50.

    Is that model(and other non i-ttl flashes) usable on the D50? Is it
    even worth trying.

    What do you give up (if not using i-ttl) if it does "work"?

    They work, you just can't use any kind of TTL metering. You can use
    full manual mode, and if the flash has an auto mode where it uses its
    own sensor to control exposure, that should work as well.
