    I just finished with a freelance design job today and I'm using the money to buy a flash for my D90 and I just picked up an SB-800 Speedlite! No point in this post, just thought I'd share. I've never had this kind of flash before so I'm expecting big things!

    Totally understand the "WOOT! I GOT XXXX!" threads. :)

    Congrats. The SB-800 is a real monster.

    Of course, now, welcome to the pandora's box of flash photography. :lol:

    You are going to love your SB-800 - I have two of them and they are real workhorses. Take the time to practice with it, especially in the wireless modes. This is a very capable and versatile flash unit.

    The SB800 is a fantastic professional quality Nikon flash! Congrats!

    Lately, I've been finding the SB400 easier for me because it's light and fits in my pocket. Fits great on my D40 and works perfectly for family/vacation shots.

    Enjoy your new flash.

    It's actually kind of amazing no one ever thought to take that name prior to now.

    I thought the same thing. I am however intrigued to see if someone will do an IP check and see if it really is him... An admin needs to do this...

    Congrats on the new flash; I recently picked up the 600 and finding it much more complex (that's a good thing) than I ever expected.

    From his personal profile:

    I dunno...it just looked funny. :mrgreen:
