Nikon SB-700 on Nikon D800: never again without external flash, first impressions on SB-700

I recently bought the SB-700 for my Nikon D800, as I could need it for reporting indoor, evening events in Zurich. Although I still need to learn how to use a flash, the full automatism of the SB-700 makes it a wonderful learning item.  Its remote control under command of the internal D800 flash makes it a very interesting toy to experiment with lights. Let’s the game begin!

No flash (center up) suffers from high ISO and incandescent lights.

D800 flash (center down) is flat and gives a terrible shadow on the backgrond

In all the other cases I moved the SB-700 in different positions around my favourite model (FL = front left; BR = back right). Waiting forward to test the flash on humans!
