I saw a pro at a recent wedding who got his second shot to carry a pole with an SB900 on it. Whoever the pro pointed his camera towards got illuminated from high left. Not my idea of a great set-up but the pics weren't bad.
Why not use the 910 as they fixed the overheat issue?
"How many SB900's are people using for group shots (5+)? How many are back-ups when they overheat? "Surely the SB900 will not overheat in the time it takes to assemble the groups? I thought it was only a real problem in a studio type quick-fire setting?
Anyways, if done right one unhappy customer could ruin your business.
Just thinking about this a bit more, I do wonder if flash gear is one area where we get a bit carried away as photographers. For me, the correct positioning of lighting is the most important thing... examples of what can be done with the Vivitar 283, which is pretty basic, when it is well setup.
If I were a pro and bought an SB900 just to find it overheated I think Nikon would be surprised - at my approach! I would insist they make it fit for purpose!
