Good value


from Fort Wayne, IN  -  Casual Photographer

This is my first flash for my first DSLR, Nikon D5100. It worked well at a wedding and at a fundraiser in low light settings. It was nice that a shoe came with it to attach to a tripod stand but the owners manual did not go into detail about all the settings.

Questions about this item:

Bill H  Is flash compatible with Nikon d90?
LUBOMIR T  All Nikon flashes are compatible with the D90. Presumably cheaper brands are compatible, too, if they state they work with Nikon dSLRs.
darin h  hello . i just wanted to know how this flash compares to the nikon sb-700. is it better or equivalent?
Todd S  Output is equivalent. Flash sync may be higher on the Nikon. But the BIG advantage to Canon's 600EX-RT is the radio mode. Be careful, radio mode doesn't work on all cameras equally. But when it does, it gives you very reliable, precise control with a great menu system. Much better than other radio triggered flash systems.
Shopper  Is this flash compatible with a Nikon d40?
Andrew R  This flash should be compatible with most Nikon SLR/DSLR cameras
