    Can I use my Nikon Speedlight SB-600 on my RZ67 Pro? I've read conflicting opinions elsewhere. Since I am new to MF photography any advice is greatly appreciated.

    yes. the RZ has a standard hotshoe on the side or you can get the left hand grip and use it with that

    Thanks so much for your answer. I do have the grip. I also have the SC28 sync cable for the flash. Do I need to use that also?

    You can use either a PC-sync cable plugged into the lens, or the hotshoe on the camera body. Both work fine.

    Just bear in mind that you will not get TTL metering, or even automatic flash features, with the SB600 on the RZ. You'll have to use manual power levels and either calculate exposure via guide number/distance or a hand-held flash meter.
