  • Summary: 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: 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 exceptionally useful. Indeed, it makes you want even more control., Wireless Abil...
  • 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?

  • 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.

Nikon SB900: Flash forward?

Digital Home Thoughts
27 August 2008
  • 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?

  • 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 con...
  • 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 a...
