I'm still learning about photography in general and using my D100. Until recently, most all my shots have been in natural light. Well, we went on a trip to Disney and I struggled a bit using my SB-22 with my D100. Pretty much I set the flash to an aperture of 4 and if a ceiling was present and a reasonable height, bounced the light off of it. It has worked OK, but I feel like I can do better. So my question is, what benefits do I gain by upgrading to the SB800? Is that the speedlight you would recommend for the photography hobbyist?

Using multi-sensor balanced fill flash, the camera uses the monitor preflashes to fine tune the flash exposure. Everything in the system should be compatible, meaning you should be using an AF Nikkor, AF-D Nikkor or AF-G Nikkor; D100 and either the built-in speedlight of a D-TTL capable speedlight (SB-50DX, SB-80DX, SB-800, SB-600).
