Just bought a Nikon refurbished P6000 and am getting used to it.

Have a Nikon 50DX flash which was designed for digital cameras - I had it with my problematic N5700. Worked fine with that overpriced beast of a camera most times.

On the P6000 and in TTL mode - it talks to the P6000 and the camera acknowledges the connection on the LED screen.

However - it GREATLY over-exposes on flash shots - no matter how I try adjusting exposure in strobe menu OR on the camera menu. Very strange.

Tried Green mode, P, S and Manual.

Anyone have any ideas???

I think unfortunately with the P6000and a non iTTL, older flash, you can only adjust flash intensity with your aperture, unless your flash has a direct control over intensity. Even then, I think it sounds like it's being ignored. I had a very simple hotshoe flash once with the P6000, and I couldn't get the intensity down either with the on-camera controls.

You might have to resort to using the aperture and maybe a diffuser to cut down on the flash intensity. That sucks, I know.

Please correct me if I'm wrong!

I have not looked your flash up so not clued up onn it's specs. Can you turn the output down manually?

The only older flashes that will work are those that offer NONE TTL AUTO MODE .In this mode the flash will work fine on any DSLR

You should not have any problems on MANUAL

I've started using an SB-15 that's probably older than I am with the P6000. No problem as long as I use the "auto" (non-ttl) modes, and adjust my aperture accordingly.
