Alan, Sheffield I use it semipro

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Power, directional lighting control both off and on camera. It and the camera (D80) work faultlessly together.
Bounce lighting is so easy now and the results are superb both indoors and out.
Bad points:
Had to really think about this...possibly could be smaller....but it balances well on the camera

Gary, Co. Armagh Avid amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to see why this is Nikon's #1 unit. Performance is second to none. Wireless use is a feature I couldn't personally live without. Used as a commander with a secondary SB-600 it has everything an amateur will ever need.
Bad points:
Menu system is a little convoluted, and takes some getting used to.
