Thread: Sb900 or Metz 58

    Default Sb900 or Metz 58

    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if this topic ever surfaced, but I'd some suggestions.
    I'm getting the sb900 but there have been concerns of overheating, someone suggested
    The Metz 58 for wedding events. Would that be a better way to go?
    Thanks.

    If you don't mind the non-TTL on the Metz... go ahead.

    The SB-900 protects AGAINST over-heating... Meaning you're supposed to go easy on the flash and not BURST fire repeatedly...

    Please lah... don't always assume non-Nikon brand means no iTTL. This Metz 58 AF fully supports iTTL and can be controlled by SU-800 also. It has an added advantage of a secondary reflector.
