    Default flash advise!

    hi guys;

    so as a newbie here... would like to ask from the pros...
    what flash unit is recommended if my theme is wedding...
    eyeing the sb-400... any other 3rd party flash is recommended...
    or should get the sb-800???
    thanx all

    wedding shots, a SB600 or 800 would be better suited, more creative light bounce and further throw range.

    refresh rate a sb600 would be good enough, those hall with high ceiling as long not super high the 600 and 800 be able to light up your shots. add a little bounce with bounce card will give your photo more light.
    D80/D700 18-135/17-50/14-24/24-70/70-200/70-300/50/60 SB600/900

    I was in the same situation as u are... but since u already say wedding.. then its either the SB600 or SB800 liao.

    SB400 I got one.. and it is good to be used as a filled flash in a low ceiling HDB.. and somewhat good lighting outdoors with a bounce card.

    For events.. its better to go with the higher power SB600 or get the best there is SB800 to save u the trouble of upgrading (which I am in now) or to allow external battery power for long lasting.

    Take note that wedding event is normally whole day event.. so power to ur flash is very important.

    As far as I know.. if you are looking for external power.. than u only have the sb800 as your choice.

    external batt pack are usually not cheap..and sd8a oni compatible wif sb800..
    if u r low on budget, the sb600 will be a good choice..get urself some rechargeable PowerEx2700 batteries..they perform well, great recycling time..
    This is an electronic post which requires no signature.
