Creator: Mike Hagen | Photography - 2012-03-06

Publisher: "O'Reilly Media, Inc."

About this book
Mike Hagen opens up a whole new world to those photographers who are already well versed in photography, but may not have a clue about flash photography. With the new and rapidly evolving technology, flash photography (especially advanced light modeling with modern iTTL flash systems) has become an art in itself and should be mastered by all aspiring photographers-amateurs as well as professionals-who are often helpless when it comes to using the full potential of these systems.Using a simple, step-by-step method for setting up and using the newest Nikon iTTL flash units, Mike teaches all the steps required to achieve consistent and amazing flash photos. He solves the common frustrations associated with flash, and specifically teaches how to use the SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, and R1C1 strobes. Also included is a chapter showing system configuration so readers can duplicate the desired results on their own. Beginning at a basic level and progressing to more advanced techniques, Mike teaches you everything you need to know about mastering Nikon's iTTL flash system.

    Lots of misinformation in other reviews of this flash

    I can't believe the amount of misinformation presented in customer reviews for this product.First of all, it is true -- Nikon added a thermal cut-off that allows the customer to be absolutely certain that the flash never overheats. If that sensor is turned on, the flash can't shoot fast enough or often enough for professional usage -- particularly for weddings. Try shooting the bridal party introductions at a reception, for example. Even if you limit yourself to two flash pops per couple, by the time the third couple is walking in the door, the thermal shutdown will kick in, and you'll be swearing at the thing.However, you can simply turn the sensor off. In my experience, the flash is no more delicate than previous Nikon and Canon speedlights. Every Nikon and Canon flash has a duty cycle carefully described in their manual that virtually all professionals ignore and exceed, and yet -- most of us get years of usage from the flashes with no problem. I can't tell... 5/5 Paul Grupp (Troy, NY) - See all my reviews, May 4, 2009

    Thermal shutdown - fixed?

    I have an SB900 and agree with all the positive comments posted in other reviews, however I want to challenge those who are posting stories about thermal shutdown to supply some additional information about what situations really cause the flash to shutdown.I've been using my SB900 for several months now, and I've never experienced a problem with the unit shutting down, so I thought I'd try a simple test.I installed a set of brand new lithium ion batteries in my SB900, set it to full power manual mode, and hit the flash button manually as soon as the ready light lit - that's about one full-power shot every 1 or 2 seconds. I did this until the batteries were drained (that is, until it got to be about 10 seconds between flashes - that's a few hundred full-power flashes in a row).Never once did the thermal protection circuit kick in...in fact, the temperature display barely moved for the first 50-100 shots, and throughout the test, even when I could... 5/5 Busy Executive (Long Island, NY) - See all my reviews, December 26, 2008

    Finally seem to have fixed the SB-900 overheating issue

    I was a bit surprised when I saw Nikon had introduced the SB-910 relatively quickly given the old SB-800 was around for longer when the SB-900 introduced so my suspicion is they got very tired of dealing with the overheating issues that the SB-900 had. Granted for many people those issues were not THAT big of a deal since believe me, having to wait 10 minutes for a flash to cool down during an automatic "time out" is far better than frying your flash; however, for pros who are about to take that picture of a ring being put on a finger, or the first kiss, etc. this is a very big deal and the SB-910 addresses that.Physically, you can't tell the two apart unless you look closely. The color correction gels on the 910 are also hard and better built. Internally, the 910 takes much longer to overheat and when it does, it slows down the flash rate (not sure about power) instead of just shutting down.

    Great Improvement Over the 900

    5/5 W. Kurtz (New York, NY) - See all my reviews This review is from: Nikon SB-910 Speedlight Flash for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics) I used the older SB900 model before this one and was constantly frustrated with the incessant overheating when I was doing event photography. Happily the SB910 corrects this fault to large degree and performs much better in this regard. The unit is easy to use as a basic flash on camera. Just pop it on and you are ready to go. However that is not really using all the potential of the product. There are numerous powerful features built in for off camera flash and modifying the light output for a much more natural look than direct flash. Many Nikon DSLRs can control this unit using their small built-in flash. It's all in the detailed instructions. As far as my experience, the flash has performed perfectly. It cycles quickly provides a great deal of light and helps make amazing pictures. It is also much easier to use than its predecessor. I am very happy with the this flash, so much so that I own two of them. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 2, 2012

    A compact SB 900

    I'm a big fan of the Nikon CLS wireless flash system and I have several Nikon speedlights that I use for high quality portable lighting. Overall, the system works really well, and armed with a few flashes and some simple clamps, I can get creative off-camera lighting nearly anywhere (for on-camera flash, I tend to use the Quantum units). Yes, it's infrared line-of-sight and doesn't have the range of other radio systems, but for me, it's fine.I have a pair of SB900 flashes and have been very impressed with them in terms of light quality, ease of use and so on - my only complaint is the bulk and weight. I also have a few SB600 units, which are more compact - but they don't offer the same even, high quality lighting I get with my SB900. For whatever reason, I always find the SB600 too hot in the center, and somehow "harsh". I end up using various diffuser attachments, and by then, I get all the bulk of the SB900, and only half the output.I figured I'd try an... 4/5 Busy Executive (Long Island, NY) - See all my reviews, November 6, 2010

    Awesome (and a little pricey). Be aware of different camera limitations. (LONG, but helpful review)

    Most importantly, I am not a professional photographer. I would say I am a very enthusiastic hobbyist when it comes to photography. That being said, I always do my research when it comes to photo gear. For the purpose of this review, I use the Nikon D5100 which is a "cropped" (DX) sensor. That is somewhat relevant when looking into gear and flashes.Overall, this is a great flash/speedlight upgrade to the built-in flash on your dSLR. There are cheaper and simpler options available, but if you want to buy a high quality product that has features that will let you expand your photography skills, this is a great option.Important general things you should be aware of when consider any flash/speedlight upgade: (Final "Pros/Cons" at the bottom)• Upgrading to an good mounted flash/speedlight will dramatically expand your options when using a flash as well as the overall quality of the photos taken with a flash.

    Commander Mode for entry level DSLR cameras!

    Most of the newer entry level Nikon DSLRs do not have commander mode to remotely control the flash OFF Camera. As the owner of both a D5000 and D3100 I wanted to be able to remote fire my SB-600. Now that I have the SB-700 I can do so very easily. The interface on the SB-700 is much more straight forward than the SB-600 which requires you to push two buttons at the same time to enter certain menus to control the flash. The SB-700 is easier and faster to setup and has more features than the SB-600.The SB-700 also includes 3 flash covers: Diffuser, Tungsten and Florescent. These unlike gels that wear out come in handy in certain lighting conditions to get the shot you want without having to purchase aftermarket covers/diffusers/gels (nice touch Nikon!).Though the SB-700 is slightly less powerful than the SB-600 I just find I rather shoot with the SB-700.

    Some damn fine technology here!

    5/5 DCI (Seattle) - See all my reviews This review is from: Nikon SJ-3 Speedlight Color Filter Set for the SB-900 Flash (Camera) Color correction has never been this easy! When you place one of these color correction gels on your SB900 flash, the flash unit detects its presence and and knows which gel it is via a small set of "smart chips" at the bottom of each filter (gel). If you have a D700 (mine) or a D3 series body, the flash then tells the camera what gel is attached and the camera adjusts its white balance setting automatically (D300 users and lesser models must manually enter a correction). Sit back and watch whites become pure white while perfectly blending your flash with ambient conditions. Never ever let your audience know you used a flash. Make it look natural! The SB900 comes with both a full and quarter cut CTO (amber/tungsten corr.) and florescent correction gel (also feat. in this kit) but not the fancy effect colored gels.

    Best Diffusion Dome out there.

    5/5 Shane Stiles - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nikon SW-13H Diffuser Dome for SB910 and SB900 (Replacement) (Camera) I was shooting a wedding when I dropped one of my Nikon SB-900's which of course is built like a tank and showed no signs of damage and kept on shooting. However what did suffer was the little tang on the side of the diffuser so I ordered this replacement and am keeping the broken one as backup. This is a must have item for any strobist out there. I have used the Omni Bounce and several other light diffusers but for quick set up to shooting I love using this Nikon diffuser. I find it to be much better thought out than the 3rd party brands for example it has a diffusion grid molded into the plastic to further assist in getting the diffused light nice and wide. Also when mounted on the flash it actuates a tiny micro switch that tells the flash to go extra wide to aid even light dispersion even more. My recommendation if you are a strobist kind of shooter is to always have a spare or so around or at least some gaffers tape :) Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 13, 2010
