SB700 is a great flash. I used one to shoot a wedding back in the summer.

p.2 #3 · p.2 #3 · Which flash for D7000


I have now photo'd six weddings this year as the paid photographer. I've been using the D5100, D7000, and D300. Mostly I've used the SB-900 but for a wedding last weekend I also had an SB-700 available. Some thoughts. The Sb-700 is a great compact flash for general purpose. It can do quite a bit at a wedding, but it just didn't have the power for everything. For regular wedding use I just would NOT want it as my only flash. For the formal shots I was using either two SB-28 fired by CyberSyncs (if wedding was distant and I took a plane,) or more ideally two White Lightning X3200 monolights. On none of the wedding I've done would a single SB-700 have enough power for formal shots. I look at it this way. Wedding photos are probably the most iimportant photos in most people's lives. I would be doing the a huge disservice if I went cheap and didn't bring correct equipment to do a decent job. If you aren't willing to do this, skip weddings. That said, my second shooter liked the SB-700 with a Lumiquest diffuser for shots of bride getting ready, bride at hair salon, and some close shots at the reception. It's not what I'd use as a main flash though. the problem is lack of power, especially with a mandatory diffuser on it.

I found a used sb-600 that's been a knockout. No complaints and does awesome work. The sanyo eneloop batteries work amazing as well.

I have been using a sb-600 with my d7000 and it makes a good combo.

Wow, I am new to flashes, but if people are saying that the SB700 has a "great" interface, I can only imagine how awful the interfaces on the older flashes must have been! I have found the SB700 to be very confusing -- it rarely does exactly what I want.
