SB-900 Review

  • Excerpt: Minor Tweaks: 8/18/08, 4/8/09 Nikon Speedlight SB-900 Review Even our equipment is starting to use steroids. Add a comment or send Thom feedback on this article. The Basics Announced with the D700, the SB-900 didn't get as much mention or notice as the new camera, but as far as I'm concerned, it's the more significant announcement. No, I'm not dissing the D700, which is a fine camera, but the D700 doesn't break new ground while the SB-900 does.
  • Pros: Getting a bit bulky . In every dimension the new flash is a bit bigger. Make more room in your case., Some strange cost cutting . Plastic 1/4" tripod mount? No multiple cabled TTL or TTL modes for film bodies? No D-TTL? No dedicated head style switch?
  • Cons: Getting a bit bulky . In every dimension the new flash is a bit bigger. Make more room in your case., Some strange cost cutting . Plastic 1/4" tripod mount? No multiple cabled TTL or TTL modes for film bodies? No D-TTL? No dedicated head style switch?, Best flash interface yet. Tiny quibbles aside, Nikon nailed the controls. Faster to set, easier to set, easier to understand how it's set. Bingo., Styled light. The ability to control the concentration of light is excep...

Nikon SB900: Flash forward?

Digital Home Thoughts
31 August 2009
  • Summary: Introduced together with the Nikon D700 in early July, the SB900 replaces the SB800 as Nikon's high-end flash. It brings a few new features, such as increased flash cycle times, a new flash head with a twist, as well as an all-new user interface. How well did it do?
  • Pros: Decreased recycle times (and without needing a 5th battery too);, A proper switch that not only turns on the flash, but enables the wireless modes., New user interface is a bit quicker and easier to operate for many of the flash's myriad settings., A new flash-head that zooms to 200mm, giving control over the shape of the light projected...
  • Cons: ... at the cost of making the new flash much bigger than its predecessors;, No increase in power or distance reached;, Hotshoe stand (AS-21) mounting screw threads are plastic. Unforgivable cost cutting;, As of now, the SB800 still is on sale, and represents a very viable and potentially better alternative.

  • Excerpt: The first impression almost all Nikon shooters form on meeting the new line-topping SB-900 Speedlight ($470, street) is: It's big! Scaled to look at home atop the beefy Nikon D3, the SB-900 is about 20 percent larger than the Speedlight it replaces, the SB-800.

  • Summary: I've never been a fan of using flashguns as I prefer studio lights or ambient light, but I have to admit that if all flashguns performed to this standard, I'd use one.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, Loads of features should cope with every scenario, 180 degree turning circle both ways, Extended range of up to 200mm
  • Cons: Expensive, Entry to menu not very clear

Nikon SB-900 Speedlight

PhotoReview
1 August 2008
  • Summary: A powerful flash unit with advanced capabilities for professional photographers and serious enthusiasts who use multi-flash set-ups.The SB-900 flash is an evolution of the SB-800 model but still runs on four AA batteries (not supplied) and forms the heart of Nikon's Creative Lighting System. Larger and radically different in design from the SB-800, the new model offers a GN of 48 (ISO 200/metres). . .
