Art, I presume HSS meaning high speed syncronisation = 1/320s (type Nikon SB-800)


The Magmod was ordered via Amazon Germany  and expected coming Wed or Thu.


Will provide feedback...




Correct. ....  HSS meaning high speed syncronisation = 1/320s (type Nikon SB-800)  The SB-800 is HSS capable?  Didn't know.


I checked locally, I can pick one up before taxes for about $120, just the extender and fresnel plus mount.  Simple kit.  


It looks substantially better than the BB.


I can also order the entire shooting match of filters, adapters, cones, bouncers etc. for about $420 before tax.


I will wait and see what you get and what you think.  Now that I made one of these and it works as good as the BB, I don't know if I want to drop this kind of money when they are so easy to make. 


Albeit, I would be challenged to make anything as good as the MM, but I will wait to see what you think.


I think I am as excited as you.  This is a very excellent tool for wildlife!  You will come to love it, I am sure.
