John,Thank s for the write up. I shot a wedding outside for the first time with my D5. I got it a couple weeks prior and worked it hard learning it. One thing I noticed in working it was that the Rawls all needed about .6 bump in exposure. I did not internally adjust it yet but I will say where it is made shooting the white wedding dress outside a breeze. Not one blown dress shot but to be fir my d800 did not blow any either but I know I dialed in a 1/3 stop. I also had the isle facing the sun so as the party walked up they were back lit so the sb910 was a lifesaver there. I am thinking I will bump mine up internally. I just got the 850 ad want to see how that does as well. Then if needed I will do both the same proportionate amount.
Maybe you or someone else here can help on lighting with the D5. First, I know next to nothing about flash. Never used it. I am looking to get something where I can do some off camera flash with the D5.
My thoughts so far are a Godox V860II-N with the Godox X1-N trigger. I Like the Godox AD200 better, but it won't go on top of the camera - not that that is a requirement. My other issue is more pragmatic: hold the D5 in one hand while holding the flash in the other!
