Just got done with learning indoor and outdoor lighting working group. The photographer did not show us how to use the TTL settings installed on our SB800/900 and so on. instead, he mentioned that he primarily uses a set of pocket wizards, which is what i used the entire day. He also mentioned how its much harder to use the SB800 as a commander and its hard to bind to another speed light or fixed lights for studio lighting.

What do you guys suggest? how do you rate the pocket wizard flex TT5? also what do ou use or suggest? I wish i did get to learn to use my speedlight as a commander or as a slave but i didnt..i did however use it with a set of pocket wizards and it was dead easy to do. Basically plugged in any lights or speedlight and it automatically adjusted the lights with camera settings. you can also apply adjustments from the remote...seems like the same exact features as what the speedlight is suppose to do.

i guess instead of jotting down an entire list of experiences, my main question is what do you guys use or suggest?
