Perfect complement to the camera

EvelynM, Crutchfield
3 June 2012
  • Summary: A bounce flash, no batteries, and good range. Made indoor pictures at a wedding reception and I am still finding my way with the flash but so far it does what I want it to do.
  • Pros: Very small, attaches easily, NO batteries required (works off camera battery). Bounce flash capable
  • Cons: None that I can see.

Bounce in a small flash finally!

GaryI, Crutchfield
28 January 2012
  • Summary: I am Certified Professional Photographer and bought the V1 system as a walk around camera when the D3 is just too much. I find the V1 to be a well thought out system and the SB-N5 flash is great. Flash's for small cameras have always been disappointing to me as they do not have a bounce feature - this flash does and it is very usable. It has TTL which is quite accurate, or full manual. I use manual on the lowest power setting to fire SB-900s, or studio strobes.
  • Pros: Bounce capability, uses camera battery so very compact and light weight, TTL or full manual thru easy to get to camera menu.
  • Cons: Would like to see a little more power, but of course that would mean batteries in flash and larger size, so actually a good compromise as it is.

Fantastic

Ron, Crutchfield
16 December 2011
  • Summary: The camera is easy to operate and all the controls are very intuitive. From very close up to distance focus is accurate, quick, and easy, even in low light. The smart picture function is fabulous and gives an opportunity for pictures that would be impossible to capture except in a continuous shoot mode. The camera has that feature as well. It turns on with a twist of the lenses; push the button to focus and start capturing FANTASTIC pictures.
  • Pros: It has the weight and feel of the larger SLR cameras. Fully automatic - allowing me to concentrate on the composition. Simple controls. Large battery with good life. Picture review system with picture by date. Not really advertised. Quick focus system. Every function is simple to use. Compares to larger cameras with quality of photos.
  • Cons: It should have come with a case for the price.

Flash for Nikon 1

Chris Glab, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: Well made flash, small but powerful. Head tilts so can bounce light off ceiling. Flash uses camera power so no batteries. A must for the Nikon V1 camera.
