D200 + 80-400 VR @ 400mm, ISO 800, 1/320, f8, 3x crop
This was taken yesterday at the Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area on Long Island, NY. A light mist was falling creating nice soft light and giving everything a soft and damp look.
Comments and suggestions welcome,
If you read my exif data it shows that I used flash yet there was none as my SB800 had failed. Even disconnected from the camera it does not fire. The under exposure code comes up with no flash.
I can get it fixed for $131 by precisioncamera.com
KEH has them used for between $360 and $400 depending on condition
B&H has them for $220 to $250 and they sound about as beat up as mine
My other option is an SB910 $475 used like new; or new SB800 for $550.
Iím guessing the reason my SB800 has failed was firing too many times in a row as itís not protected and I use a battery pack. The SB910 has protection for this.
Does anyone have experience with flash repair and is it worth it?
How long should a new flash last?
