I decided that I had put off testing my SB-800 and SU-800 long enough. Here are a few sample shots. They were all created in my living room with nothing more than a piece of green felt, a SU-800 , two SB-800 , a Nikon D70 and except for the remote two pieces of acrylic used for covering florescent light fixtures. The flashes were set to +.3 ev and -1ev respectively.

Oh the sweet sights of new gear

I don’t know about you but I’m still salivating over the specs of the new D3 and D300. I will give a full review as soon as I can get my hands on them (hint hint Lindsey).
