Have decided to take the plunge and see if the Nikon can do most of what my\nCanon EOS 35mm stuff does without the weight or bulk. The best indoor flash\nphotos I've ever taken have been with my Canon with the 380EX flash unit\nwith (this is very important) a Sto-fen Omni-Bounce unit. My current\noptions seem to be:\n\n1. Nikon SB-50DX Speedlight\nAdvantages- light weight, lower cost\nDisadvangates- uses nonrechargeable batteries (123A 3v, or are rechargeable\nmodels available?), low zoom range (only to 50mm zoom- or can the 5700 take\nadvantage of this feature? I know there are some things that can't be\ncontrolled by the camera as they would be on a 35mm SLR)\n\n2. Nikon SB-80DX Speedlight\nAdvantages- Much greater zoom range (to 105mm), can use rechargeable AA\nbatteries, which I use all the time anyway, comes with Nikon diffuser\nDisadvantages- bulkier, higher cost\n\nor\n3. Use the built in flash and try to fix everything in Photoshop. My PS\nskills are limited, and don't want to spend more time post-processing photos\nthan necessary, but is this a really viable alternative? I tend to want to\ncompose the shot and leave it alone, but should I rethink my stategy with a\ndigital camera? Based on the few indoor photos I've taken so far, there\nwill probably be more stuff to clean up than I will want to bother with.\n\nMost of my photography is of either nature scenes (mushrooms, leaves,\ninsects, etc.), artwork, or musicians (the latter two almost always under\nlow light conditons with no flash). But, the photos I've taken with Canon\nflash described above of friends, family, weddings, etc. have been so\nsuperior to anything I'd done before that I'd like to closely approximate it\nwith the Nikon.\n\nThanks in advance.
