    At full power how many watt seconds is the sb800 rated?
     
  2. I've never seen an external flash's power defined that way. It's always in terms of Guide Numbers.

    The sb800 has a GN of 125 at iso100.
    The sb600 has a GN of 98 at iso100.

    Is there anyway to compare it to say an AB400 in terms of light output? I know all strobes are defined by there Ws. What does the GN of 125 at iso100 translate to?
     
  4. I have no idea, but if you move your question to the lighting forum, I'll be one of the studio guys will come up with an answer.
