D3s + SB700 first wedding

I have blown the tubes on 6 SB900's now and I was reading a fantastic review of the SB700 and thought I'd give one a go at a wedding on Saturday.

The flash worked faultlessly and the heat indicator rose a couple of times but shot back down again rather quickly, unlike the SB900.

I still have 2 SB900's, one just came back from repair.

Upon looking at the images after the event, I noticed that the flash had fired every single time I pressed the shutter release, usually I have 10-20 black frames where the flash didn't fire is fast succession.

What a great bit of kit, not only performs more reliably than the 900 but it's also smaller and lighter.

I shot 1022 frames with the flash on all the time, 500 images where inside.
