Professional i-TTL Speedlight compatible with Nikon FX- and DX-format SLRs, and part of the Nikon Creative Lighting System.
Fast, versatile and powerful, the SB-910 offers extensive opportunities for on-camera or wireless flash photography. Three illumination patterns provide total control over flash coverage, with automatic adjustment for a zoom range of 17-200mm.
Professional i-TTL (intelligent TTL) Speedlight: compatible with FX- and DX-format SLR cameras. Part of the Nikon Creative Lighting System, it offers total control over flash coverage.
Centre-weighted, Even and Standard illumination patterns: Centre-weighted mode concentrates illumination to the centre of the frame, useful when using a telephoto lens. Even mode diffuses light evenly across the frame, useful when taking group shots. Standard mode offers a standard balance of power and light distribution.
17-200mm auto zoom range: offers a 14mm zoom range when using built-in diffuser or Speedlight dome.
Intuitive operation: boasts a large LCD screen, clear menu systems, conveniently placed controls and illuminated buttons that offer more comfortable operation in low light.
Automatic detection of sensor format: automatically recognizes FX- or DX-format cameras.
High-speed recycling time of 2.3 seconds when using LR6 NiMH batteries.
AF-Assist illumination: compatible with Multi-CAM 3500 FX/DX AF sensor module.
Bounce capability: rotates 180° horizontally to the right and left; tilts up to 90° and down to 7°.
Thermal protection system: warns of excessive heat build up during high intensity firing.
Hard-type incandescent and fluorescent color filters included.
Automatic filter detection: Speedlight automatically adjusts the attached camera’s color temperature settings according to the color of the filter being used.
Firmware can be upgraded via the storage media in the attached camera.
