View Full Version : SB600 or SB800??

I'm in the market for a new speedlight. I have my heart set on the SB800, but the price of the SB600 is very attractive. Can anyone tell me the differences between the two models, and the advantage that the 800 has over the 600. B&HPhoto has the SB800 listed at $314.95 , and the SB600 listed at $169.95. For what you are getting with the SB800 is it worth almost 2x the cost of the 600? I will be using the flash for indoor portraits, sunsets with the foreground lit up, all around general usage, as well wireless (put the speedlight across the room behind a target and trigger it wirelessly with the popup flash on my D70s)

I bought the SB600 for my D70s. Works very well.
