    Just to follow up and end this thread, I got the SB800 back from Nikon service, all nice and clean, working, and they even fixed the pop-up diffuser. $130.

    It's off to Nikon for repair. (The SB800)

    After talking to a repair guy and describing the symptoms, he recommended sending directly to Nikon; for the parts he figured would be required, an...

    Thanks to all who thought about, worked on, and responded to my problem. I think I've got it. The answer is a service call. I went to bed last night thinking about this, and when I woke up, an answer...

    Thanks for the help. I think I will contact Nikon someway, and see if I canget their attention. If I knew someone in my area with an SB800 to try, I'd do that, too. A camera store? (The...

  7. D70 in commander mode?

    Thanks. I think I tried that, along with setting the D70 in its several different flash modes. I'll go back and try it again, to make sure.

  8. Triggering remote SB600. What am I doing wrong?

    I can't figure this out. Maybe (hopefully) you can.

    D70 with SB800 as MASTER on hotshoe. Remote SB600, set to remote, CH3 GrpA. MASTER set to CH3, A set to TTL (or M, or anything).

    I got better results with a similar setup when the camera was set to P (program). Of the two images you posted, the first seems OK to me; maybe it's because my monitor is over-lightening things?

    Hi.
    I use the Lightshpere in my dog photography business, and it works very well. Sometimes I use it directed toward a reflector without the dome, sometimes aimed directly at the subject with the...

    Here are a couple of quick-off built-in/SB800 comparison shots. The SB800 had one of the Gary Fong LightShpere diffusers.

    stock answer

    The stock answer, of course, is "it depends." On what type of pictures you take, on what your expectations are, on your budget (SB600 vs 800), and on and on. The advantages of the SBxxx over the...

    about the tripod...

    I have the tripod (not the head) and use it for landscape photography with a D70. Very sturdy, adjusts easily, works smoothly, don't know why it wouldn't work for weddings.

    re: the 50mm 1.8

    I think I made a mistake when I bought my D70. I passed up the kit lens to use instead a couple of Nikon AF lenses I had from the film era (about 20 years old). Increasingly unhappy with the...

    Questions about D70 and SB800

    I got an SB800 today to act as a remote flash for my D70. This evening, I sat down with the manuals (I was going to have a glass of wine; I'm glad I skipped that) and started reading/experimenting....

    ..or tell me I'm off base.
    My understanding is that a raw file has the values that fell on the sensor, unprocessed. Therefore, the only thing that can affect a raw picture are things "in front" of...

    Given that the other, unmentioned, settings (e.g. ISO) are reasonable, it sounds like something's "broke". If you got the camera from a nearby store, I'd take it back and go thru a demo with them. ...
