    Well I finally quit thinking about it and ordered one! Wow Wow Wow!

    Any fellow SB-800 owners have any tricks or tips?



    After reading the manual only makes me want to save up for a second one! Just have to think up a good excuss to give the wife.

    Congrats :D You are lucky. I hear it is a very nice flash unit with a lot of control. Since I don't mind doing flash exposures manually I'm probably going to buy the vivitar 285 for now since it's so cheap and powerful... I have a slave trigger and a softbox to use it with.

    So far the more I "play" with it the more I'm amazed. The wireless feature is just about the coolest thing I've seen!

    If you want the full effect, set your D70 to commander mode and power to 1/16th. That way you can eliminate the front illumination all together.
