Re: Hire a SB800?

I use SB-26 in manual mode all the time at 1/4-1/8 power, F8, ISO200, speed = 1/125 and get decent results. It takes a lot of practice. Ofcourse, off camera flash is best. Bounce flash also works.

I don't have any experience with the Vivitar 285.

Check out this link.  Most of the time, the strobist info is also posted:

Ok Guys. You can't tell me that back in the day that the D200 was what everybody was using to do weddings and all types of professional work that they didn't get quality images shooting manually with manual flash!?
So! Back to the original question, how was it done? Not what I need to buy to meet today's so called standards.
I know that everybody has different standards. So D200 fans help me out here.
