U use D50 right?

I thought SB600 and SB800 can fit because it need the iTTL. The rest may not compatible.

Why not save up for a SB800? There has been numerous cases of SB600s dying out due to a manufacturing fault...very common and yet Nikon refuses to do anything about it.

I have the SB800 and it's well worth the money especially if you like shooting events and such.

Thanks for the reply. I never knew about what u just mentioned.
i will do more research on it. Sb800 is rather expensive. I am shooting for fun and not really into commercial use. Trying to find a good and affordable speedlight

I'm not making money out of my hobby too....hopefully in the future. But I dare say it's better to save the money to get the best so that you'll never go...."Damn...maybe I should have bought the SB800 instead.."

But heck.....since when is photography a cheap hobby? Many people say that you either continue photography as a hobby or you get married......you can't have both, hahaha!

Anyway, do more research...the fault with the SB600 is common but you may be lucky and never experience it. Also do think about why you need a speedlight.....I enjoy shooting weddings and events so it's a must for me.

ha yes photography is never a cheap hobby but when it comes to buying, i tend to save as much as i can for a "good enough for me" product.

hmm could be a good idea to get SB800 (if i have the money), i just realised SB800 has built in commander mode. I am using D50 btw. I got the comparison chart here
http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/sb600vs800.htm

I tried to find what you told me about the known defects on SB600, but can't find it on the net. do u know any site in particular?

again thanks for the advice

Try searching at PhotoMalaysia.com or Nikonians.org. In fact, one fellow at PM had his SB600 die on him recently. Apparently it's quite common but not too serious to fix. New batches may have had the problem fixed.

Have you tried researching Sigma and Metz flashes? I haven't used any but they're supposed to be quite good.

With a D50, you can't do wireless flash or CLS unless you buy a SB800 as a master unit and another SB800 or SB600 as the slave.

I'm not particularly sure why you want a flash yet. The D50 has excellent noise control at high ISOs (supposedly better than the D70s which I use and I do feel it's true) so you can get away with shooting at ISO800 easily and even 1600.

Why not spend some money on a fast lens? Hehehehe....

I found this interesting comparison between the SB600 and SB800

SB600 VS SB800

Of course it does not state the problems that SB600 creates after usage, but the comparison of features and advantages.
