Default A good flash for s2pro

ok i know Nikon SB-80DX is the best thing...but is 450 tax included

Is there anything (also of other brands) that is similar to sb-80 dx, and is more cheap?

It's not important that is powerful as much as 80dx..i can be satisfied...

main point: i want a flash that use the same ni-mh batteries of s2pro. (such as 1850 mma)

>Can anyone confirm me that sb-80dx use the same batteries of s2 pro (ni-mh)?
How many of them?
If yes I can buy 3/4 set of 4xni-mh 1850 mma and a very fast charger.
2 set for the digicam (no Cr123 at this point i don't need internal flash and alla the rest work correctly, isn't it?)
1/2 set for the flash

What is your esxperience?

or sb 80 dx is so good and usable for many...many time from now?

thanks to all

Check out the Sunpak line of flash units. I use their AF4000Z. It runs fine on NiMH batteries, saves the CR123's, and is reasonably powerful. They also have a newer (bigger) AF5000Z.

They come with the dedicated Nikon foot and work properly with the S2.

I'm using my Nikon SB-28 with my Fuji S2. No need to use a dedicated DX flash for the Fuji as it's different. TTL works great.

Yes, you can use any TTL flash with the S2.

A good used SB-28 (non DX) will do great, Should be able to find them for about half what a new SB-80DX runs. The 80 was the replacement for the 28, and I have been told that the SB-26 also is very close to the 28 and also works very well on the S2.

The 80, 28 and 26 all use AA batteries.

I have both SB26 and SB28D (not DX), both bought used online and they both work well. I personally need help with flash compensation, but that's another thread. I also use a Quantum Battery 1+ to power both my S2 and SB2x and am VERY pleased with that setup.
