Q. 1) If I understand your explanations right, I will have to buy triggers for anything other than SB 800. ?? If yes, can't I just use 433 the same way? Or do you think 383 which does not have a TTL but a manual mode will be a better choice? btw 383 does come with a PC cord.

I have a D80. So I guess I can use the on camera flash in the commander mode but the previous question (Q. 1) still remains, i.e. can't I just use it remotely in the auto mode?

I guess if SB 800 is a better choice and is something people go for in the long run, I would like to keep my money on SB800 and look for another possible companion.

Well almost all the situations. I am mostly interested in nature and cultures but being a beginner, I'm trying to learn almost all the fields. I am sure going to do portraits of my friends (even though all I have is a D80+some cheap lenses) and some still life closeups for practice.

Ok one last repetition of my big question in a little different way. How do I know that a flash can be used as a slave as well as on the hot-shoe?

Which specifications do I look at?

How do I find out the accessories needed??

If you were a poor grad student like me and had a budget of less than $100 for the second flash which one would you go for?


I'm sorry if I'm bothering with a lot of repetitive questions.

Thanks,
Tulasi
