Can i use the nikon sb50dx flash with the nikon d5100

Need a faster answer?
Yes, you can use the SB50DX on the D5100, however not in the TTL modes. It will only work in the manual or rear-curtain sync modes. For more information, look on page 204 of your camera's manual. You can download it for free at this link:
