SB-700 big enough for church?
Mar 13, 2012

Hello,

I am looking for a Nikon TTL flash that I can bounce in a church (it is permitted in this case). The church is not large, but the ceiling is 30-40+ feet high. Ambient light is not great, so I expect the flash to be working pretty hard. Will the SB-700 have enough power for this, or do I need to go to the 900 or 910? I might be able to place the flash in the balcony and bounce it from a location closer to the ceiling, if that would help. For logistical reasons, umbrellas/reflectors would be a challenge, so ceiling bounce is my best bet. I would much prefer the smaller form (and price!) of the SB-700 for my other purposes so if it will be sufficient, it is the one I would like to get. I appreciate your experienced opinion.

Jon
