    I realize that the Nikon SB-800 has a few extra features and power than
    the SB-600. I want to use the flash with the Nikon D70. The Nikon SB-800 came
    out before the D70 and I guess was therefore made with earlier Nikon SLRs in
    1) Is there ANY features on the newer, cheaper SB-600 that are not on
    the older and more expensive SB-800? (keeping in mind it would be used on a

    I bought the SB 800 (£175) for my D70 as it has a number of extra features
    and more power. it is only very slightly bigger in all dimensions but way
    smaller than my previous zoom,twist and shout f/guns. Check out Nikons web
    page to compare the two for accurate analysis

    Not if the list of features of each in the D70 manual is anything to go

    SB-600 lacks.
