About Nikon SB910

Nikon SB-910 is Nikon's most sophisticated and powerful Creative Lighting System portable Speedlight designed for use on camera as well as for complete wireless control in the studio or on location

Nikon's flagship Speedlight for enthusiasts and professionals
Engineered for FX and DX-format D-SLRs and COOLPIX P7000 Series cameras, the Nikon SB-910 offers unparalleled lighting performance in the field and in the studio. Featuring Nikon's versatile i-TTL (intelligent through-the-lens) metering for on camera or wireless flash control, the Nikon SB910 can operate as a hot shoe mounted Speedlight, remote unit or wireless Commander. And with refined operability including illuminated buttons for use in low light and improved thermal cut out protection, the Nikon SB-910 is the perfect partner to your D-SLR.

On the road or in the studio, the perfect partner
Real world simplicity with advanced automation
At the heart of the Nikon SB-910 is Nikon's i-TTL flash control which enables Nikon Speedlights to share critical exposure information with CLS compatible D-SLRs. All of the complex lighting calculations are computed for you instantly with consistently accurate results in just about any lighting situation. Using the SB-910 as a Commander or the in concert with the SU-800 Commander or D-SLR with built-in Commander operating as the Master controller, you can wirelessly manage and fire up to three groups of remotely positioned SB-910, SB-900, SB-700 and SB-R200 Speedlights. Additionally, each group can contain any number of Speedlights and any mix of these Speedlights. Nikon SB-910 can also be set as a Remote Speedlight for complete system integration and control.

Unparalleled lighting performance
Seamless integration with Nikon's Creative Lighting System
The Nikon SB-910 Speedlight operates as a hot shoe mounted Speedlight, remote unit or wireless Commander (with up to four channel options) capable of controlling as many as three remotegroups (A,B and C) and an unlimited number of SB-910, SB-900, SB-700 or SB-R200 units. With a host of pro flash features including; precision i-TTL flash control, Manual with Power Ratio, three illumination patterns for specific shooting environments, wide zoom range from 17-200mm, and streamlined controls and menus it's no wonder that Nikon is the overwhelming choice when it comes to flash photography.

Improved control and convenience
Versatile flash for enthusiasts and professionals
Nikon SB-910 offers an improved interface, adding a dedicated Menu button and illuminated buttons for control inlow light. Additionally, hard type color correction filters are now used, providing durability and convenience when used with a camera set for Auto white balance. And when taking pictures in certain situations such as in rapid sequence, to prevent the flash tube from overheating, an improved thermal cut out protection has been adopte d that slows recycling instead of cutting off the flash.

Performs Great On and Off the Camera

By

from San Francisco, CA, USA

I bought the SB-910 because I wanted something less bulky for small setups than the studio strobes I'm used to. I've connected it to a third party wireless transceiver via PC sync cord and had no problems triggering the flash. I also used the SB-910 off camera placing it on the stand it comes with and am able to control with my camera using commander mode to make TTL adjustments as necessary. When attached to the camera hot shoe, it fits securely, and performed nonstop at corporate events I photographed. I'm glad it came with a comprehensive manual which I've had to refer to a few times to make the most of the SB-910 as I explore creative possibilities. I've had the SB-910 for a couple of years now and is still a very reliable unit.

Great flash to have in your arsenal

By

from San Antonio, TX, USA

Its powerful, its fast, its light and portable, the only thing I wish is that is that Nikon incorporated radio technology when they made this to replace the SB-900.

Great flash, but complex menu system. With better menus, it would be 5 stars.

By

from Nashville, TN, USA

I have two of these flashes for portraits, coupled with a sb900 and sb600. The flashes are all flawless, can reach out and iluminate a 30 X 70 room. Or softly light a closeup portrait setup thru D810 commander mode. But the menus are confusing and hard to use. That makes these only useful for a pro who uses them often enough to remember how to set them to get maximum results.

Great Camera for a Novice Like Me!

By

from Undisclosed

I purchased this camera to step my game up. I own a Coolpix and like it but wanted more natural looking pictures. I must admit it is little more work but it pays off in the long run. The pics come out great and are more detailed. Makes for better prints. I am by no means a professional but this camera helps me along the way.

Love , hate relationship

By

from lakeside, ca

I love this camera I own 2 Nikon cameras and 5 lenses. The pictures are beautiful the only down fall of this camera is the battery. This is the second time I have had this issue. It frustrates me to no end, I was doing a graduation shoot ( battery was full) and dodo me left the battery inside the camera (it was not on) when I got to the next location about 50 minutes later it was dead. I was beyond mad that in just that short time it had drained. Not very happy at this particular moment in time. If a Nikon person reads this please tell me why it does that. Considering I have the D80 also and it has never done that. Thanks for taking time to read my long review

Buy a kit and enjoy the best for a great price. Excellent value.

By

from Undisclosed

I've owned this camera for a week and it's incredible. Having been a professional commercial photographer for 25 years I naturally owned Nikon so I was drawn to this when I saw the deals that are available, The kit came with the 18 to 55 zoom and the 55 o 200 zoom. Both lenses perform amazingly. They focus quickly and the exposures have been dead on. It's been awhile since I've had anything but a Nikon Coolpics, which takes nice snaps but having the extra power and versatlity is a great feeling. I've already taken some really nice photos. Look for the deals and kits and go with it if you want a really great camera. Enjoy.

D3200 has focus problems

By

from Hampton, NH, USA

I purchased the D3200 for my hobbie photography and found that it has a problem with focus. The camera often is out of focus and autofocus doesn't work well resulting in photos with parts of photo out of focus. Supposed to be multi-focus points, but doesn't always work. I find others with similar problems and I have been told there is a calibration procedure to correct it. I am disappointed with this camera and would not recommend.

Great starter

By

from Undisclosed

This was my first DLSR, I learned photography off of this camera. I was really happy with this camera or all. The one problem I came across was video. Not the best in low-light. A lot of noise in ISO 6400+ This was with the 18-55mm kit lens. This camera has done well for me. I recommend getting better glass if you stick with this camera.

PERFECT CAMERA FOR THE RIGHT PRICE

By

from Undisclosed

I bought the Nikon d3200 18-55mm and 55-200mm bundle and wow am I impressed. The price was practically a steal. There are no doubts that this camera meets a beginners expectations. I brought my d3200 on a trip and got breath taking photos with the supplied lenses in the bundle. Overall this camera has exceeded my expectations with both photo and video quality and to add that its lighter than other DSLR cameras I have used. Perfect camera for the price if I do say so myself.
