Re: SB-800 feature already? Cover contacts with?

The D70 and SB-800 normally won't go any faster than 1/500th ( I have tried). The D2H and the SB-800 will go all the way th 1/8000th. Thats whats so cool about the tape trick, it lets you get around the limitations that Nikon added to the D70.

Cover the contacts with Scotch Tape.

I am looking forward to trying this. Also wondering how I can
utlize a sound trigger I have from a while back. My question is
about the SB-800. I thouhgt that this feature of ultra High Speed
Flash was already built in to the SB-800. I don't have my manual
with me...but I recall seing something in the manaul about it.

Is this different? Also, what have you used to cover the contacts?
