Up Close and Personal

Fuji S7000 @ 210mm, 1/250 sec, f/8, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

I bought an SB-800 flash yesterday - man did that thing hurt my wallet. It's mainly for my D70, but i really like the fact that i can use it on my s7000 as well. I'm still at the stage where i'm in absolute awe of what it can do. The fact that i can bounce it (the light) off the ceiling and create natural looking light is awesome.

Anyway, i've tried a few reverse macro shots with my s7000 before, but the poor lighting in my room always made it difficult. So now i can be as shaky as i want, and still get sharp results.

I did try focusing on the tip but it didn't look as good - the narrow DOF meant that most of the shot was completely blurred. I'll definitely be trying a few more shots like this - it's amazing the detail that can be captured that the human eye can't see.

Technical details: Fuji s7000 @ 210mm, 1/125 sec, f/8, ISO 200 + reversed 50mm, f/1.8 + SB-800 with diffuser dome, bounced off the ceiling.

Sorry for backposting John, but this is the only post that relates to what I wanted to ask you about.

I have the s7000 and I'm thinking about getting the sb800 and later upgrade (s7000) to D70 (if only money was an unlimited resource).

Does the sb800 work with the s7000 out of the box? What about wireless from s7000? Do you know if it is possible and what I would need to add to make it work?

Hey Mathias... sorry for taking so long to reply to this one... it kinda slipped me by.

Yeah, the SB-800 works with the S7000 - as well as any other flash I think, since the S7000 doesn't have a dedicated flashgun. It's easy to use, but isn't as automatic as using it with the D70. Basically, I use the S7000 in aperture priority and set the SB-800 to A mode. I then tell the flash what aperture the camera is using and it works out the exposure for me. Pretty easy really.

I tried using it wirelessly with the S7000 but couldn't get it to work. I have a feeling that it only works wirelessly with the latest Nikon models.

If you want you should ask that question on the fuji forum over at dpreview.com. A lot of guys there have an S7000 and a D70 with SB-800 - no doubt a lot more knowledgeable about the subject than me.

Hope this helps a little.
