K I finally got my 150.00 sandisk rebate as a B&H certificate. I am thinking of getting the SB800.(Like I need another 300 page manual) but am wondering about the height issue on hot shoe. Will it reach over my Nikon 70/300 vr at full extension or will I need a bracket. By full extension I am thinking more about 300 at close range. Think flowers/bugs as fill light. Also, if I do need a bracket have any of you just attached it to a QR plate on the camera? My Markins has a tripod thread but it just seems that the plate does not have much meat.
