Can members suggest an economical option for a more powerful flashgun (speedlight) than my SB-800 ?
This is for large, outdoor subjects such as buildings or trains. I do not need iTTL or other sophisticated abilities, I would normally be firing manually while shutter is open on "B" setting, or perhaps firing with PC cable connection.
Must be battery powered, handheld.
I have seen units which look larger, but I find it difficult to compare because SB-800 and similar units are normally quoted in terms of guide numbers, whereas what look like larger units are quoted in watt-seconds.
Thanks in advance.
