I am finally caving in and buying a SB 600 for my Nikon D70, as I have a party to shoot on Saturday and need the flash. Essentially, the gig is going to pay for the new flash. Ya'll know how that goes. My q is: when I used a Vivitar flash at another party I was shooting a while back, the images came out ghostly. Do I set the Nikon on Automatic and use the flash, or do I have to meter every time I want to shoot? If so, won't that hinder me from capturing those spontaneous moments? I will read through the manual tomorrow when I buy the flash at B&H, but wanted to get a heads-up ahead of time, since I basically have two days to learn it. Thanks to all in advance, my TPF friends.
