I'm going to a boat cruise tonight in London. With the following kit to choose from:
- Nikon D7000
- Nikkor 35mm f/1.8
- Nikkor 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6
- Nikon SB-400
- Yongnuo YN-465
I need to make a choice between the two flash units, as my bag doesn't have room for both. The SB-400 is small and compact, but has less maneuverability, and can only offer direct flash when shooting when there isn't a roof. The YN-465 on the other hand is a lot more powerful and 'rotate-able', and has a built-in bounce card to offer softer bounced light even when there is no roof, but its AF-assist lamp is quite weak and it can become impossible to focus when the lighting is really bad...
Anyone have tips/past experiences to offer please?
Also, I would appreciate any tips on best settings to use for flash as well, both for photos of people indoors, and portraits against dark cityscape background outside on the boat.
