SB-400 = Very Limited

The SB-400 has shortcomings in almost every aspect I can think of.
-It allows for bounce but only in landscape position.

-It's small enough to carry around as a secondary flash but you can't use it as a second flash as it has no off-camera capabilities

-On DSLRs, It offers wider coverage than the built in flash but it sits so low that wide angle lenses will cast a shadow.

If Nikon were to upgrade the SB-400 with wireless CLS then I would buy six of them!
But Kenny can keep 'em for now.
