Re: Thinking about an SB-400. Thoughts?

i'll reply to my own post, to share an image or two shot with the Df and SB-300.

Darion Radke, of the band Radkey, at Strange Matter in Richmond, VA 5/10/14

Steven Ansell of Blood Red Shoes, a UK punk/alternative duo, same venue & date as above

While the Df can (and did) shoot acceptable photos at ridiculous ISOs, I found that shooting the SB-300 even at 1/32 or 1/64 power allowed me to keep ISO really low, and the images consequently fantastically clean. Can't shoot every venue with flash, but when I can I'll pull off a handful of attempts just to mix things up a bit.

One more, of Laura-Mary Carter, the other half of Blood Red Shoes

I suppose the point that needs to be taken is it's not the gear so much as how you use it that makes the photos come alive. I could've shot with my SB-900, but I doubt it would've been a huge improvement, even if it has a huge size difference. Take away from this what you will.
