I would like to replace my SB600 with an SB700 because I need the 180 degree flashhead rotation both directions for bounce flash. However, I understand that the SB700 will only work in plain TTL mode when you use spot metering. Russ MacDonald and several other flash experts whose expertise I trust suggest not using TTL-BL indoors under normal lighting, but to use TTL in those conditions. TTL-BL is supposed to work better in bright light where the main subject is less well lit than the background. For my indoor shots then, where spot metering in not practical for fast moving subjects like kids and dogs, the SB700 would use TTL-BL. Does anyone know whether TTL-BL on the SB700 will work reasonably well in this situation? I have done some playing around with my SB600 in TTL-BL and the camera in manual mode. The results seem OK, but this approach requires quite a lot different ambient setting than using TTL. Thanks for any insights, particularly if anyone has used an SB700 in this type of environment.
