Flash Options

Postby Trevor Harris » Thu Mar 29, 2012 5:48 pm

So I've got a D200 and and SB-600... For higher paying jobs I've been renting another flash. I don't need to explain why I want to stop doing this, now. I'm wondering what my options are. I've heard of these SB-24's and 26's... will they work wirelessly with my D200 (using the pop-up guy, not referring to third party guys). I'm fairly competent when it comes to lighting so going fully manual with the flashes isn't a problem. Having said that, going with a couple mark 1 pocket wizard plus's would work as well. Anyway, suffice to say I'm flexible with my options, any suggestions?

I wouldn't bother with the SB-24 slave flash mode, you're still relying on line of sight that way. I also would skip the Pocketwizards and get a set of Cactus V5 triggers, they're absolutely brilliant. I use them myself and so do some of my mates.

If your equipment does you want and require it to, that is what is important.
