Re: Who shall I blame

Thanks FionaB, it should be less complicated than the Metz 50AF-1 I have, I don't need mega-mature-memory usage menus and buttons.

Re: Who shall I blame

That was a fast move Graham!

Now you will be able to use the two off camera using the CLS system If the SB900 is easier to operate than the Metz I think it justifies getting one, but surely the Metz can't be as bad as the SB800?

A real pleasure to meet you yesterday.

Re: Who shall I blame

Yes great meeting with you too Graham.
Oooops have just been reading the manual for the Metz, it takes a bit of understanding (IMHO) but it works, or seems to imply, that it works exactly like the SB-900 and that the on camera flash will work as master for 2 flash guns!, so I will have quite a few options. But I must say I liked the way the SB900 worked, didn't seem so 'techie' with codes and buttons; I may be wrong but that is what I thought.
The other thought is it is easier to sell to a Salesman, (which I use to be) as they can understand the 'FAB', Features, Advantages and Benefits, in fact they've already sold it to themselves!
OK now back to packing

Re: Who shall I blame

The SB900 (and presumably the SB700) are without doubt much easier than the SB800/SB600 because you don't have to delve into the menu for everything.

Hope the move goes well.

Re: Who shall I blame

Thanks muscle750, I was wondering about getting an SB700 but at the moment spent a bit on the 'Nikon' stuff but will test out the SB900 and Metz later, (the SB900 being delivered between 13.27 and 14.27!) and have just ordered some Toast for the Mac have to supply my own marmalade though
Although I am an avid computer 'nut' I keep forgetting about YouTube for instructional Vids, sothanks for that.
