Thread: SB600 good enough?

  1. #1

    Default SB600 good enough?

    intending to start outdoor fashion shoot (day and night) with my 50mm F1.8 lens.

    is SB600 sufficient to light up the model half body during night with low light?

    Usually small strobe problem is not enough flash power in the daytime.
    At night almost any strobe will do.
    You loose about 1 stop shooting through a diffusion or bounce medium of course, but nothing a strobe like SB600 cannot handle

    Nightshoot with a f1.8 lens... I think SB 400 is competant enough. SB 600 is even better...

    U will need ur subject to stand back a little more or down power ur flash if shooting at F1.8. Just FYI
