Many thanks for the information. I understood the SB-24 and the SB-400 had limitations, does that also mean they would not work if I had PWIIIs? Just curious.
As for applications of the flashes, the SB600s would not be used in any fashion other than lo-fill supplements to existing light shooting. Though the possibility of using them in a pinch with umbrella's or soft boxes might exist in the future, only not not now.
Why would I use the SB800 as a trigger and not the D700? Also, would this set up let me adjust the output of the SB600s from the camera? I will not be able to adjust once a show starts.
Your gonna miss 100% of the shots you never take, so keep shooting.
