I like Nikon P7700 + SB400 flash

I just went to Disneyland in Hong Kong, with my wife and 2 young daughters, aged 3 and 6.

Previously, I brought the Nikon DSLR D700 + 24-70mm/f2.8. And that also means a

more substantial bag.

This time, I have my new Nikon P7700 and SB-400 flash.

It is SO MUCH lighter. And the smaller sensor and deep depth of field is good for me.

Much more is in focus.

The SB400 does bounce, but it is not powerful enough. The subject is not lit well enough.

I think it is better used "directly" (not bounce).

I was used to the SB800 flash on Nikon D700.

The SB800 is big, and does look a bit weird on top of the P7700.

But I think I would use (SB800 on the P7700) in future for optimal results.
