Day 312 | Broken Flash!

Dropped my flash while having a workshop!!! Now it won't pop a flash! Need to wait 1 week to see how much it would cost to get fixed. (First service center I asked told me it would cost almost half of the price)


Doing some DIY bg today using a basket I found in our kitchen.

Studio Strobe thru softbox camera right @ 1/8

    funny, I have dropped my SB-800 and SB-26s many times from the 6 feet or so; and they all function perfectly. Knock on Wood!!!!

    Sorry to hear about your SB-600, Laya. If you remember, I was asking you for tips on buying a used SB-600. I opted to get a new Yongnuo 465 which works in TTL w/ Nikon. I only paid $67. You can also get a manual Yongnuo for about $40. They're a lot cheaper than Nikon Speedlights but work perfectly fine.

    nice config about camera shoot?
  • Lee Smith 3y

    I remember dropping an SB600 and that cost £120 to get fixed, cost me £140 (when the prices were low a few years ago) but would have cost £200 for a new one lol

    It's worth fixing :)

    when you get about on how to fix your flash or get a person to fix your flash, I need my vivitar 285hv fixed too! - jumbz
