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.

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..
