I'm considering buying an S2 Pro but have a couple of questions (actually many, but I'll keep it to two):
1. In the November Popular Photography article on the S2 it says that "the S2 Pro doesn't offer D-TTL metering with some of the newest Nikon SB Speedlight flash units". I have an 80DX. Will the S2 Pro provide D-TTL metering with the 80DX? Is this also an issue with the D100? Is this something that should concern me? I appears that the S2 Pro will also work with my Sb-24 so that is a good thing!
2. I am going on a trip to Maui with my 2 girls at the end of Nov. (it's our first trip there and we are all quite excited about it). Of course, I will be shooting photos of them like crazy - so I need to address the storage issue. I don't have a laptop. If I were to buy an Apple iPod (10 or 20Gig) (I also have a Mac system), could I use it as my storage source? Both the camera and the iPod have firewire so this is one reason I am considering the S2.
I really have a lot to learn about the computer side of all this but assume with patience, study and a few $'s it will all work out!
By the way, while the battery situation sounds a bit strange with the S2, seeing Duck's photo of "My Little Intellectual One" has me going wow! It keeps me proceeding down the S2 road. Thanks and have a great day.
