Hello!

Could anybody give me a quick advice for purching a speedlight? Since I'm having Nikon I'd consider this brand. And I have no doubt that I'd better take USA than Imported for better warranty. The difference is negligible comparing to the total price anyway.

Here is what we have on BHPHOTOVIDEO.com web site: http://www.bhphotovideo....0&InitialSearch=yes

SB-400 SB-400 Speedlight i-TTL Shoe Mount Flash $125


SB-700 Speedlight Shoe Mount Flash $330


SB-900 AF Speedlight i-TTL Shoe Mount Flash $510


Of course I realize that the higher price means better quality. But do I really need SB-900 for my D80 or whatever I will buy in a year or so? SB-900 can illuminate a bigger room for sure, it's more flexible with settingsm, but the price is higher.

I realize that the better models can be used separately with wireless control, so it's great, they are more powerful, etc. I can correct the direction of the speedlight. TTL is very good since the camera supports that. But does it really make sense to buy the most expensive toy for home usage, rare sport events, weddings, etc.?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Steve! I would definitely buy SB-900 if I had enough money for that and could afford it with no pain. Having SB-900 I'd get tons of features including TTL, which is incredible increases the usability of the camera/speedlight pair.

Just bought Nikon Speedlight 910. I saw on the Internet that many people were complaining about 900 model overheating. Nikon solved this problem in 910, so I decided to try.

Yes, 910 is a very good choice. It's not only very powerful to use BKT with it shooting a few frames per second, but it's smart enough to focus exactly at your target. Incredible flashlight!
