So I bought my first flash gun, Nikon SB 800 few days ago (from a local craigslist ad), I got it for $220 and it has recycle time of 5.2 seconds on a full power, with brand new AA batteries. Very much looking forward to read more about this flash and put it to better use. BTW, I have d7000.
My questions are:
- How to know the power of flash to be used at an indoor low light situation?
- What kinda mode do you use for covering a small get-together. It's about 20feet by 20feet room and normal height ceiling.
- Any advice to get better with this flash?
- Any learning material for this?
Is it a smart decision to settle with this flash or I must have considered the latest SB 700? I understand SB 800 is a hassle with menu and settings but I'm willing to go through it as it I could save bit more, to use on other accessories. Flash zooms only upto 105mm (sorry if it's wrong) and I don't think I would need a flash to use with the muscle builder 70-200 f2.8
