quick question. im using nikon D5000 and planing to get sb600 this weekend.
if i understand correctly my built in flash acts as trigger for the sb600? so everytime i shoot and wanna use sb600 my built in flash has to be open yea? theres no cable or anything else physicaly connecting the flash to the body right? so basically meaning its wireless so i can even take my sb600 off the camere and hold it in my hand? or not?
also another thing is i read lots of reviews comparing sb600 and sb800... and the most notable one kenrockwell review saying that he would choose the sb600 anyday coz its small, and cheaper and has got all the main features anyone would care about same as sb800. And the additional stuff that sb 800 has but sb600 doesnt is just alright and not that great. but he did mention that the biggest loss for sb600 comparing to sb800 is absense of built in bounce card (which to be honest i dont really know what exactly it is)...
but i read that u can compensate it with lumiquest bouncer or nice flash soft box which is even better.
so thats basically what im planning to do get the sb600 and later get a decent not too big but not too small soft box for the flash... which will ditribute the light more natural and even.
does it sounds like good plan? or any of you suggest anything else? or any other big reason to go with sb800?
any comments will be appreciated. thanks
