Alternative profiles SB 80DX

I've a couple of Nikon SB 80DX flashes, & being too lazy or clumsy to go about the learning process for these flashes again (after updating firmware) I decided to try a profile already in the V6. I just set the SB80 to TTL & chose to call it as an SB28. And it seems to work - I can vary power as needed. After an evening playing around, I thought I'd pass on this little titbit to others who may also have the same model flashes.

    Indeed using another flash profile would still work. It's only if you feel the power output is not as accurate as you wish you can go through the Flash Profile Learning process.
