Nikon SB-600 Speedlight Flash

Well I broke down and bought the Nikon Speedlight SB-600 AF Flash Light – i-TTL, TTL, D-TTL, Manual – 65.6ft Range, but I bought it from Buy.com instead.

My wife has been wanting an MP3 player and I saw Sandisk Sansa c250 2GB MP3 Player, On the fly FM and voice recording, MicroSD slot -Recertified on Buy.com. An MP3 player for $17 I didn’t think I could pass it up.  It is refurbished, but I tend to trust the brand name SanDisk.

Nikon SB-600 Speedlight Flash

I’m really thinking about adding a Nikon SB-600 Speedlight to my Nikon D80 setup. I’ve got two nice lenses in my Nikon 18-200mm and Nikon 50mm f/1.8.  Currently my weakest area is lighting.  I think the speedlight will be my best overall option in lighting to start with, but would like to add some studio type lighting for when I try to take some portraits.

I’d love to find somewhere local to pick one up to use for the rest of our Christmas gatherings but the the best price I can find locally is $219.  If I can find one for $200 I’ll probably do it, otherwise it looks like the link below to Amazon is about the best price I can get, although it may take a week or so to get the price savings are worth it.

I’ll probably be making the decision in the next day or two.

Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR II DX

  We recently returned from a really great vacation to Glacier National Park in Montana (pictures to follow).  Of course two weeks before we plan to leave my Nikon 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX which came with my Nikon D80 decides to quit working.  I checked into getting it repaired but I would not have gotten it back before we left for vacation.  I had been looking at the Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens to upgrade the kit lens and I finally broke down and bought it.

It is a great all purpose lens.  The wide angle of 18mm was nice for landscape photography and the zoom to Nikon 18-200200mm was great for zooming right in on the wild life, like the mountain goats at the goat lick.  I’d love to have a longer telephoto lens for the next trip but it’s not really necessary with this lens.  It also works great for taking pictures of some of the kids sporting events. 

  I do plan to get the 18-135mm kit lens repaired and then I’ll have to decide which one I need to sell.  Hopefully at that point I’ll be able to justify keeping the 18-200mm lens.
