"SB-27 or SB-50 DX?"


Prague, CZ
          

Which Speedlight is better? I would like to use it mainly for indoor, but sometimes as a fill-in flash for outdoor photography.
SB-27 has a rotating flash head which could be less useful comparing to the "classic" shape with tilting flash head of SB-50DX. SB-27 cannot be used for bounced flash. Am I right? I know both flashes only from catalogue.

The SB-50Dx sounds like a good companion for the N65 or N55. Somehow not for the N80. I would say your camera and skill deserves a flash with more punch and all capabilities: SB-24, -25, 26- -28.

Have a great time

I was also considering between sb-27 and sb-50dx, and I have purchased the sb-50dx. I mainly use it in remote slave flash with my N80 and Coolpix 995.
