    SB-600 and SB-800, which would you choose?

    Hey people, my question just same as the title, the speedlight model, SB-600 and SB-800 which one is better for my Nikon D5000? I can afford for SB-800, but I want to choose the suitable one and best one for myself, I wouldn't want to spend for nothing, D5000 has no built-in wireless control, if I would want a wireless control, I need to get another wireless speedlight control, which is SU-800, but that would cost a lot if I buy both speedlight and the wireless control. So, expert here pls give me some advices regarding on this issue. Your contributions would much deeply appreciated.

    Thank you so much!

    Hi Dawen,

    SB-600 is nice speedlight model. It would, almost do all the works. SB-800 is discontinued model. SB-900 replaced it. Compared with SB-600, SB-900 is (i) about 45% costlier than SB-600, (ii) Guide No. is a bit more than SB-600, (iii) added facilities of firing multiple SB's from camera position and other little fancy facilities. If you are into lot of FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY then i think it is worth spending lot of money in purchasing SB-800/900.

    Good luck & best wishes.
