I've just gone out and purchased myself a brand spanking new SB600, which seems to be a lot of fun thus far. However, on my D50... I don't seem to be able to sync the flash to anything but a shutter speed of 1/60... when the camera does indeed support 1/500. Is there a setting or something which needs to be enabled. (BTW: I don't have the manual :P)

Are you in one of the automatic modes? I seem to recall that will tend to select 1/60 with the flash on. IIRC, this would be the same regardless of whether you use the on camera flash or the SB600.

If you set the camera to Manual mode or Shutter priority mode, you should be able to select any shutter speed up to 1/500. In Program mode and in Aperture priority mode you're stuck with 1/60.

Edit: wow, you guys are fast!!

I'm not sure if this helps, but I believe that the custom function menu on the D70 has something about the sync speed. not sure if it's there on the d50.
