Nikon D700 and Creative Lighting System (CLS)

This is the Nikon D700 :-)

The Nikon D700 is a full-frame digital single-lens reflex camera introduced by the Nikon Corporation in July 2008. It uses the same 12.1 megapixel "FX" CMOS image sensor as the Nikon D3, and is Nikon's second full-frame digital SLR camera.
The D700's full-frame sensor allows the use of non-DX F-mount lenses to their fullest advantage, with no crop factor. (When a DX lens is mounted on the D700, only a DX-sized portion of the camera's sensor is used.) It bears a physical similarity to the Nikon D300.

The Si-fu!

Crash course in CLS (Creative Lighting System), with the use of a SB-800 and SB-900 Speedlights!

Joining in the fun!
