Ok, so when i had my D700, i used to use the CLS lighting option which allowed me to trigger my 2 SB900(s) using the pop up flash. This option gave me full control over power settings just like you would have on the back of a mono-light. I upgraded to the d800 when it first became available for preorder. As some of you may know Nikon has confirmed that the CLS system on the d800 has issues it does not always fire the flash units. As a temporary work around they said to use TTL mod. TTL mode doesn't allow me to control my flash units as much as i would like.
So... instead of waiting for nikon to come up with a firmware to fix the issue, should i sell one of my SB900s and get some alienbees ? are they worth it?
