    BH has 2 different prices for imported and USA models of this flash unit

    Not much of a difference 12.00 thats it. My question is does it matter? Are the directions in a foreign language? I don't get it.

    I'm planning on buying a couple of external units to mount on tripods.. I dont know if this is the way to go.. I don't want to lug around heavy lighting equipment. Should I wait and buy lighting equipment or should I use external flashed on a tripod.

    This will be used for weddings mostly.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hey zendianah,

    I got a couple of these Bogen Light Stands for my SB-600 & 800 as well as these shoe mount brackets that will hold a flash as well as an umbrella. Just put on a piece of electrical tape of the shoe mount. The flash contacts touching the metal mount wasn't right.

    Nikon do not honour grey market warranties. Keep that in mind.
