Flash Light For Nikon.

Sun Oct 09, 2005 6:28 pm

I'd like to get a proper flash light for my D70 and F80 (sadly sits in the wardrobe for some unknown reason  Sad ).
I was thinking about Speedlights SB-600 and - 800. There is a slight price difference, but what about the performance and parameters? Is is really worth paying extra for the -800?
How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

I considered both speedlights a few months ago. In the U.K. the price difference is approx 50% more for a SB-800. After reading reviews and pondering the situation I opted for the SB-600 as there is little difference appart range.

The SB-600 is an excellent flash and has fulfilled my expectations.

Same here,
i own the -600 and i am really happy with it. Compared to the -800 it lacks some power, but it´s more than enough for my purposes. It also doesn´t feature a strobe mode, but anyway, i have never felt the need to use it.

One very nice thing about the 600 is, that you can use it wireless. Can´t be done with the 800, as far as i know...

I´d go for the 600...

regards,

Denis

I have the SB-800 and it can be used wireless. Been there, done that...  wink

I was also looking for a flash for my D70 and opted for the Sigma EF-500 DG Super. This can also be used wirelessly and I give it my highest recomendation.
I do a lot of photos of shows at my school and having used it on numerous occasions its a great flash.
It may not be Nikon but still a great peice of equip'
