Yes you can use the commander mode of the pop up flash
However , even if you set the pop up flash to not collaborate to the exposure, the flash actually fires to command the sb700
This will actually show many times
When you use a flash on the camera to command another flash
Say a sb800, 700, 900 to fire a sb600 for example and you set it to not collaborate to the exposure, the command beam is actually a IR pulse different from the pop up flash
Another situation I try to avoid is to fire a remote flash on a sunny day or when line of sight is not easily achievable.
There are many ways to do this, Pocket wizard TT1, Chinese radio triggers, radio poppers.
These are pretty expensive setups, I was just trying to avoid spending a ton of money, particularly when I can see Nikon coming out with a radio based flash cls system pretty soon.
