    Doesn't the onboard flash also judge how much power it should use for each given shot, just like the external speedlights? So if you're trying to focus on something far away, it will use more power...

    You can't manually adjust the aperture. You have to lock it at the smallest setting on the lens itself, which is f/22. Then you...

    Those pics are about 100x nicer than what my current zoom lens can do. I'm actually impressed because I know the lighting at the tracks really isn't that good (also a big NASCAR fan here). I may just...

    Remote mount sb-800: which cable?
