...and I feel darn embarrassed about it with that "photo addiction" thread that's going around.

But, I'm still excited. I got an SB-800 speedlight for my D50. :cool1: Most of the advice I received, said if I got the SB-600, I'd soon wish that I had the 800, so I just took the plunge.

Sweet. I have the SB-600 and love it. Next thing you'll be wanting is a Gary Fong Lightsphere II Diffuser.

Try making your own diffuser. I built this one for about $6 and use it all the time.

Let us know how you like it. I've had my eye on one for quite awhile because the SB-28 I use with my N90s doesn't work on my D70s. Well, it does work, it just doesn't support iTTL metering and I'm too lazy to set the flash myself. Plus I'm not very good at it.....

I'd have to vote for the gary fong lightsphere,

I also have the lumiquest pocket bouncer, and I like the results of the gary fong much better

Right..."tools"...I've got to use the correct lingo. :)

Exactly- Now you need a couple SB-600's you can control wirelessly. Then you can start reading The Strobist (http://strobist.blogspot.com/2006/02/welcome-to-strobist.html). :)
