Okay, I know this has been covered, but I pride myself in maintaining some
My wife bought me the SB600 for Xmas....it's under the tree/Bush/Festivas pole.
Now I'm wondering if the SB800 would be the better flash to start off with.
Initially I prefered the SB600 because it's smaller and lighter. The advantage
in power is not a big deal to me for the 800, nor is the head pointing down,
since I'd go to the wireless mode for macro. But someone said that in wireless
mode the SB800 was more capable, using the D70's built in flash as well, but
not on the 600. Is this true? The multi unit flash feature is not key at this
time. I'd probably have the flash on top 90% of the time, wireless at other
times. As a SINGLE unit, does the SB800 offer advantages over the 600 in this
regard? Do they operate differently?
