2 x sb800 or 1 sb910 and 1 cheap optical slave?
Oct 13, 2012

I am trying to make a kit of speedlites for on location shooting (i am an amateur - more or less advanced). Tired of borrowing flashes from my friends (mutual feelings) i decided to buy my own.

Now i have the possibility to get a new sb910 or 2 sb800 for the same amount (450$), and i try to figure out what would be better -  get he new flash and buy a cheap slave for fill in (eighter a sb28 or a new youngnuo or smth similar) or get the 2 sb800 and be happy till they die.

right now i am not interested in strobes (like quadra) - maybe after i'll get very familiar with off-camera flash technique ...

thanks for help.

Please forgive my grammar but if you find it inconceivable address me in romanian.
