Im in the process of getting some new gear, and I am really trying to decide what type of off-camera lighting to order. I currently shoot bands and portraits on-location using natural lighting, then post-process the hell out of pictures in photoshop, as all I have right now is a D50 and 35mm 1.8. I'd like to upgrade to a D5000/D90 and 18-200 VR II soon as well.
I have some money to invest now, and am looking at getting an Alienbees B800 w/ Vegabond portable power supply. OR upgrading to the (rumored) new D90 soon and get 2 SB800's to use off camera in iTTL mode.
So my question is, what are the pros/cons of using Studio Flashes compared to Speedlights on location?
