I think you could make great images with any camera.

Some cameras just make it easier.....the dynamic range in the Nikons I have used so far are way ahead of the Canon

Wish the SB910 was a bit lighter, the SB900 busts D700 hotshoes. Maybe they should've built a stronger hotshoe.

When we switched to Nikon end of 2008 we specifically hunted down end-of-line SB800's because of the size of the (then new) SB900 ...and we soon felt super-smug with our choice once the SB900's overheating issues started to surface!

Hopefully the 910 improves on the heat control, but I agree it's still too big and heavy - maybe the SB700 is a better choice, but I've never seen one up close.

The SB700 is a great flash but if you need that extra power then you need to move up. I prefer to keep flash off camera anyway but I do under stand that's not always practical for every situation (i.e. weddings).

I did the same thing but only needed one. However when the SB-600s started to be sold off I bought four. Great little flashes.

Yep!! Or maybe released one as an after-market mod.

My D700 hotshoes looks pretty solid. Maybe they fix it in later models?

Not from what i've heard. They look fine, but the metal bends and the flash loses contact.

The very limited Jpeg shooting I have done, I found the opposite, Nikon renders better colours and IMO has better dynamic range.........this was comparing a 5Dmkii v D700 and 1Dmkiii v D3

Agreed, D3100 vs my 7D the JPEG from the D3100 looks more saturated, colorful and ETC

Nikons advantage for people that dont know as much IMHO is the better meter which tends to ensure that you get exposures bang on without needing to dial as much EC...

The 7D's meter is better than my old 30D's, but still not as good as a Nikon IMHO

Also Nikon tends to render Red better, my 2 Canon DSLRs tend to blow out the red channel if you're not careful, whereas the D3100 didnt when i was using it...
