Re: What flash do you use?

With my Z5:

SB-400 for compact unit for mostly direct fill flash. Have had this since 2006 when I purchased to go with my D40 and have used it on all bodies since.

SB-700 for more power and/or flexibility, including ability to provide coverage as wide as 14mm. Flash Control mode setting on the camera doesn't work with the SB-700 but I can set the relevant parameters on the flash unit. Purchased for more versatility with my D7100 which has built in commander mode for wireless triggering. The SB-700 can also be triggered purely  optically with  the light from another flash ( full manual non CLS) an addition to being triggered from a camera or device that has commander mode.

Thinking of adding an SB-500 as an in between option and I like the LED light and to have two flashes to trigger wirelessly
