    I drove up to my college yesterday to get some things from my dorm.. Went out to the memorial site and endured the freezing weather and nearly frostbite (i forgot my gloves!) to get some photos. It was a moving experience for me. I found that photography is not always a fun thing to do...

    A Different SB-800 question

    I hope :-) I am planning on getting the 105VR soon and will be needing a flash. I would love to buy the SB-600 because the obvious $100+ difference but am wondering about the -6 degree downward rotation of the SB-800. I currently own the D50 and can not use the flash off camera. Is the...
