Two Nikon SB-800s up for sell:
Both are in perfect working condition. Both come with all the accessories when bought new: bag, diffuser, yellow filter, wide diffuser (that you slide out from the top of the flash), stand, extra battery pack. Both come without manuals (never read them) and boxes (threw away to save space). No scratches on both LCDs.
#1 SB-800 has some very superficial scratches (can't not feel them) and few deeper marks on the joint. $270
#2 SB-800 has fewer very superficial scratches. $285
I put those two flashes together in my Lowepro bag without a divider. So those scratches/marks are from those flashes hitting each other inside the bag or when I take one out. They are never dropped. Please refer to the pics provided for a better understanding of the condition. I forgot to include the (snap-on) diffusers in the pictures, but they are definitely included.
Payment: Paypal verified US account holders only. The prices include paypal fee + 2-3 day USPS priority + insurance + delivery confirmation.

Hi JMP, I wish you had emailed me about my pricing instead of posting it here out of respect and forum rule. I priced them with their current conditions in mind and recent sells from ebay and this forum. I am sorry that the prices are still seem too high for you. I am willing to lower them but of course within reason.
Those 2 flashes are USA models about 2-3 years old with the #1 being few months older. Got them for trying out the remote flash feature on portraits. I thought they would be perfect as they were small and cordless compare to the cumbersome full pro lighting equipment. But the results were unsatisfactory. As I understood more about photography and gained more experiences I gradually shied away from using the flashes as they tended to destroy the natural color of subjects. They have been used in no more than 30-40 occasions with an average of around 20 pictures with flashes in each occasion. Adds up to ~800 flashes among them, ~400 each. So beside the scratches/marks on the casings the insides are close to like-new in perfect condition.
I have written you an email with the discount from the shipping. If you are still interested please EMAIL me instead. We can work from there.
I forgot to mention my ebay name is "oophy". Please check my rating. I have bought expensive (>$800/each) equipments here. If anyone needs it I'll email you who I bough them from. Then you can ask them about me.
I just thought about this. If anyone is willing to buy them both, I am willing to give discount to each flash and more discount if willing to pay through google checkout (to the same address as paypal verified address or the billing address on the credit card used). OBO.
If anyone out there has a question/interest please EMAIL me thanks.

that is so strange. I have emailed everyone earlier today. Carl, I just emailed you again now. I replied to everyone. If you haven't got my reply please let me know.
I notice the reply address is "firstname.lastname@example.org" instead of member's address. Is this normal?

Did the other member who purchased these have any other contact information for Rick? Since I received mine it has not worked properly, I thought it was a configuration error. I was working with Rick on resolving it, and when I mentioned a refund he stopped responding. I received a half working flash...and now it seems im stuck with it...
new D300 awaits!
