    Manual=Manual to me means everything manual except well.. manual focus I guess.
    I.e. Flash power, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, Contrast, Sharpness, all done by photographer.

    In Manual exposure mode, the ISO is changed if the shutter speed and aperture combination you pick won’t achieve a proper exposure (manual exposure bar at 0).

    For example, if you were at ISO 200 and set f/8 at 1/125 but the meter thought the exposure should be f/5.6 at 1/125, the camera will boost the ISO one stop to 400 (f/8 is one stop underexposed compared to f/5.6 in this example).

    thanks for the xplanation.
    i dont like to use auto iso as there will be a difference in grain size.

    i like a certain consistency in my set of pictures.
    also, the weather kind of sucks that day, so high iso seems the only way to go.

    P mode is , in fact my camera is at P mode all the time unless i'm trying something different, like panning etc. I can still remember that unforgettable day where i took my $10,000 shot with P mode!

    P=POWER!!!

    Different camera has different reactions to certain modes. P modes for Canon and Nikon systems are different. My D70s will die from P mode. But again, it depends on where u take your reading.

    Prob 1.6K.

    I always carry tripod with me so I don't need to use 3.2k (Hi 1+ or some stupid name Nikon gave it) if got blackout But to be honest, I never have the need to use a tripod, neither has my ISO every gone up to 3.2k in practical situations. MY tripod is for me to put my camera on when my hand and neck are tired

    Errr. P mode work perfectly (give me best balance between highlights and shadows) for my D2x. Of course, if I don't want to preserve highlights and want to brighten up the shadows, post processing is also an option, but at least my highlights were already there.

    P mode on my D40 (which I use full time now) is pretty constant-provided you compensate by -0.7. But to be honest, has given a really weird reading that is 2 stops off. (And that is with -0.7 compensation, so to be exact, 2.7 stops off in worse case scenario).

    However, it must be noted that by simply holding down the +/- dial and flicking the rear switch, I can still capture the shot in P mode much easier than manually dialing in exposure settings.

    Jeanie, I helped you to do some technical research. From my limited past experience with i-TTL BL (and research); i-TTL BL will only function correctly if the SB-600/800 flash head us pointed towards the subject, and not if you are using bounce flash. [But it has been quite long since I've used an SB-800, so don't quote me on this. Furthurmore, I tend to use the SB-400 and rarely use the SB-800/600, so I have little weight in this area.]

    I dont think there is a fix rule on quantity of shots per wedding. Yes, I do agree shooting less is more sometimes. However, each photographer has a different workflow and different idea towards wedding ablum creation.

    In her film days, Bambi Cantrell typically shot over 1000 pix per wedding using a variety of films from T-MAX 3200 to 35mm color slides (1n) to 120mm (with her trusty 503W). And who is Bambi? She was a pioneer in photojournalism who took the wedding industry by storm in the 90s in the USA. She lets her cleint pick from the lot happily. Photojournalism was the way the industry was pushing photographers to change their styles.

    There was also a photographer in the US who did a wedding for a very rich client. Out of a few hundred beautifully taken shots, during the presentation, the client only wanted 3 pix and the client paid him usd3k for 3 photos. The $3k was meant to pay for that few hundred pix. That was another happy customer as well.

    Whatever style, whatever gears, whatever culture; its all about delivery and what the client wants.

    If I may suggest, use a hammerhead as those are designed for abuse when used with a Quamtun for continuos flash usage. The color output might be more consistent somehow in between fast recycles.

    cheers!

    i've seen it in action and of course seen the images from my photographers as well... good flash i must say...

    i havent tried to used it yet. but i will get a chance to use it for myself after looking at the good results so far.

    metz and quantum hammerheads are good... i've yet to hear about the use of hasselblad's hammerheads thou...

    For hammerhead flashes there is no auto, so you have to set everything by hand this time

    And if Jeanie was saying she cannot handle Manual in outdoors, then I think hammerhead is not an option. She needs a flash that can handle both auto (i-TTL) and manual.

    guys,
    i have a metz 45cl4 or dunno what.bought it with my film cam last time.
    it hadnt been fired for more than...err...8 years?
    dun ask me to dig it out from the store room and use it please.

    if i do weddings regularly, i'll surely get a hammerhead.
    but for the occasional fun shoots, i dont think it's worth it.
    i still love my studio strobes.

    You call yourself "non-pro" and yet you own so many "pro" equipment even I don't use... With a little practice I am pretty sure you can earn an income from photography.

    please my dear friend...
    unless i get retrenched one day, else, photography will never be my consideration for putting food on my table.
    i really only love photography for the fun of it.

    there are also many people out there who has high end equipment and yet they dont shoot for $.
