I was looking forward to this review, wondering if the Creative Lighting System abilities of the various guns on test would be at least listed, if not tested for effectiveness. Mostly, I have to say, I'm quite happy with the test. But then... we get to the SB-700, and are told that to swap between TTL and TTL-BL you must change metering modes on the camera? That's just a bit silly - the manual doesn't say that, and the flash doesn't act that way. The NPhoto team have a number of SB-700s between them, so it can't be a lack of experience (can it?) and you'd think any tester should notice that both settings are there when the camera's in matrix or CW metering - even if to observe that's not what they were expecting.. And the SB-700 gets marked down for it, too.
One good reason to have an add-on flash is to be able to use straight TTL with matrix metering, and that's a good reason to choose a Nikon unit (not the SB-400) over others, but you tell us it's not possible with the SB-700.
raw is not an acronym. RAW is a setting.
