it rocks, I have the D80 and I almost never leave the flash on the shoe, I just hold it in my hand and use it remotely so I can lit from the side to remove most shadows inside.
sweet! what exactly is the difference between SB600 and SB800?
Higher guide number, and you can use it as a master to enslave other SB-800s and SB-600s. And it comes with a diffuser.
a lot of Nikon now have integrated controls, so the master function of SB800 is not needed. the only thing I'd want on my SB600 is the diffuser; seems you can't get one for it, but I haven't checked if there was anothe rbrand that could fit.
Lightsphere 2, if you don't mind looking like a complete geek. I was born with no shame, so I use mine all the time.
Stofen makes one for the SB-600, I have one on mine, they are $16 at the store here.
And you can control up to 3 slave units with a D70/D70s/D200 etc.
but the d50 doesnt have commander controls afaik
so one does not necessarily need an SB800
true ... unless you NEED the extra 8% power
No, IMO, you don't. I have done a lot of shit with the SB600. I would rather get two SB600s versus one SB800. If you have a friend that works at BestBuy, they can get it for about $140.
Ok fags I asked for some pointers when using this flash not SB600vs.SB800.
ok, fag. Point the flash up when using it.
Buy Energizer 2500mah batteries, and their 15min charger.
you can't use it wirelessly, so try to keep it as diffused as possible
exactly what i run on it (and on my helmet cam) and it's the best, buy 8 so you can interchange. it's quite expensive though
use a diffuser, the 16$ one seems a good deal, and point up most of the times like already told
aside from that, look at the little guide that came with your D600, it gives really good pointers and shows differents shots with different lighting.
Why can't you use it wirelessly?
because the D50 doesnt have commander options, like the 70/200
edit unless you have a pocketwizard/su800 etc. or a sb800.
watch the video and do this ... I know it is the most boring video in the world but when you see your pics you will thank me
Very cool...already made it
Already have a ton...and the charger.
I use the 1hr charger. I dont trust charging batteries in 15 mins.
Even 1hr is too quick.
edit: but im old.
bounce bounce bounce. you gonna wanna be like tiger with that motherfucker.
what's the lowest price on the sb600 right now?
