If you are shooting with a DX camera and have the flash head positioned forward, the actual FOV of the lens is about 150% greater. On the SB 800, that compensation factor is automatic once you set the the strobe to DX mode. And for straight-on flash, that packs all the light into an area the lens sees, rather than wasting it. It is a significant difference.

Can you elaborate on setting the SB800 to Dx Mode?
