    I normally go to Penang road shops. There are a few shops you can visit. As not to be biased, I'll name them all in no particular order, Excel, Click n snap, Megastar and Hike. All their prices are competitive, probably differ by only RM10-20.

    I normally don't really care so much about the cash difference. I buy mainly from the shop that can give me better after sales service.

    I'm sorry, I'm not I quite follow you... But let me try to answer. SB-700 can be used in-studio. You can trigger it remotely with a Nikon commander (dedicated device, camera, or another flash). You can also use radio triggers. On top of that, this flash has a built-in optical trigger, so it can be tripped by any strobe. hope this helps.

    No, to my knowledge, no flash can be a source of continuous lighting. There only one hybrid flash I know of, which is the new Canon 320EX that has a build-in LED video light.

    Re: Nikon SB-700 vs. SB-600: in-depth comparison

    Good pictorial comparison there. I honestly think it's a capable flash and really addressed all the issues lacking from the SB600. A mighty good investment. I'd say the biggest improvement would be the ability to put it into slave with just a flick of the switch, similar to that of the SB900, as opposed to holding 2 buttons like on the SB600. However, I'm not quite a big fan of the rotary selector. I tend to overturn it on my SB900 when I'm in a rush as opposed to the simple +/- of the SB600.

    In terms of ease to use, I think the SB600 is simpler and more user friendly. Adjusting compensation is easier too since all you need to do is just press + or -. Of course I'm basing my opinions between the 600 and the 900. Since I don't have an SB700, maybe someone who has one can share more on it's usability? I'm assuming it shouldn't vary that much from the SB900.

    No speed light can do that or else your flash tube will blow. Speed lights work via a burst. It is not designed for constant illumination. For that you'd need studio lights setup.
