    For fill in. to remove shadows. Try shootng with and without flash and you will know the answer.

    Hmmm... for turning a high-contrast, but natural-looking scene into a lower-contrast, but horribly artificial looking one?

    iTTL. For fill in flash under bright skylight usually people underexposure flash 0.5-2.0 stop.

    because the sun is not bright enough..
    if my camera is there at the right moment, click, all I have to do is accept it.

    I use fill flash practically all the time in daylight, unless i'm shooting scenes or landscapes.

    Flash usage is not limited only in low-light situations.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    erm.. SB800 don't seem to have iTTL mode. Only TTL and TTL BL. I guess you meant TTL?

    helfizad was asking TTL or AA. ?
