Nikon CLS newbie experience

Haha!! Today I tried the CLS. Nikon Creative Lighting System. Pretty fun! Came back home to try, cannot remember the steps to enable. Need to refer to the SB600 manual, and did some twinkering. Thanks to my colleague Glenn. πŸ™‚

Took some picture of Samuel fooling around with the Flash going off remotely.

Page 60:
Advanced Wireless Lighting is possible when Nikon Speedlights featuring
CLS are used with Nikon cameras compatible with CLS.
The SB-600 can be used as a remote flash unit only.
In this mode, you can divide the remote flash units into a maximum of three
groups (A, B, C) and set the flash mode and flash output level compensation
values separately for each group as well as the master flash unit, providing
automatic control of the light output.
Setting the SB-600 as a remote flash unit
For Advanced Wireless Lighting, the SB-600 can be set to the wireless remote
flash mode using Custom Settings (p. 52).
β€’ The indicator Pappears on the LCD panel.
v Notes on setting the flash mode when the SB-600 is used as a remote flash unit
In Advanced Wireless Lighting, set the flash mode of the remote flash units on
the master flash unit; therefore, when the SB-600 is used as a remote flash unit,
do not set the SB-600’s flash mode to Auto Aperture (AA) or Non-TTL auto (A)
flash because these modes are not available with the SB-600. If set, the SB-600
will not fire.
