As Nikon's flagship on-camera flash unit, the SB-910 AF Speedlight brings with it excellent power, a plethora of features, and a Commander mode for wireless TTL control. The flash is compatible with the i-TTL system for automatic metering with both FX- and DX-format cameras and is a part of the Nikon Creative Lighting System for complete control over your lighting setup. Also, it features a guide number of 111.5' at ISO 100 and 35mm for illuminating your subjects. Additionally, the auto zoom head has a coverage range of 17-200mm with FX-format cameras which can be extended down to 12mm with the use of the built-in wide-angle diffusion panel.

Complete bounce and swivel functionality is available for working in a variety of shooting situations. This allows users to tilt down to -7° and up to 90° as well as rotate left or right 180° for complete 360° coverage. Also, the SB-910 has three different illumination patterns, standard, even, and center-weighted, which help shape the light output for your specific needs. For wireless master TTL functionality, the speedlight utilizes a Commander Mode. In this mode users can access Advanced Wireless Lighting settings for controlling multiple off-camera flashes that can be set up in 3 groups (A, B, C) and one of 4 channels.

Many other abilities are packed into this unit, including a stroboscopic repeating flash mode that can be set from 1-100 Hz. The SB-910 also has slow, Auto FP high-speed, first, and second curtain sync modes for achieving the desired creative look in your image. There are even red-eye reduction and red-eye reduction slow sync settings available. The flash itself is mounted to the camera or stand with a locking hot shoe and is powered by 4 AA batteries. Depending on the type of battery used and the power setting, users can expect a recycle time of 2.3-4.5 seconds. The SB-910 can also work as the master unit in SU-4 type wireless multiple flash-unit photography.

Included with the SB-910 AF Speedlight are a variety of useful tools and accessories. First, built into the flash alongside the wide-angle diffusion panel is a white slide-out bounce card for bouncing some light directly to the subject and creating catch lights. Also, there is a diffusion dome for softening the output of the flash and fluorescent and incandescent color correction filters for balancing the flash to ambient light. All of these, along with a stand, are packaged in the SS-910 Soft Case, designed specifically for the SB-910 and accessories.

Two of these and a couple Octoboxes and you're in business. I have an SB 800 and now this second flash, the SB 910. The SB 800 has proven to be a reliable flash for me for years - The SB 910 is even better and only requires four AA's for maximum performance instead of five like the older model SB 800. I use the SU 800 Commander to remotely fire them. In large buildings or outside you will need an RF setup - but in the studio the SB 910 like the SB 800 responds instantly to the SU 800's infrared signals.

I shoot direct and with softboxes like the Octobox at 1/16th power and still rarely need to raise the camera ISO above 200 unless I really need the depth of field. Or I could switch to full power or anything in-between on the SB 910. At 1/16th power, the recycle time is virtually instantaneous and the batteries last a long long time. Only a pro shooting thousands of shots at full power in a day might need an auxiliary battery pack.

Incidentally, and it may be a bit counter intuitive, but inside a 40" Octobox you should select 105mm on the head zoom - but do your own tests.

You can spend weeks familiarizing yourself with all the features of the SB 910 - I'll let you do that - I'm too busy using it just in manual mode. Remember, one of the advantages of digital photography is the ability to check your exposures in real time and fine tune your camera/flash settings. But if you have critical shooting to do, out of the studio, then every imagined auto setting and override is available. I suggest you start by selecting those sections of the instruction manual that address what you want to do rather than trying to figure it out from the LCD menus :)

One of my SB-800s went bad, so I figured it was time to upgrade anyway. Bought 2 SB-910s. I was disappointed with the performance on the first couple outings.

The first was a quick formal session inside a church. I was using one on-camera, one off-camera to light. I was surprised how slow the recycle time was. I only had them at 1/16 and 1/8.

The second session was an indoor portrait (fun) session with a girl. Single bounce light from camera. Now, it was pretty dark in this particular building, but again, the recycle time was slow. Not only slow to recycle, but I unknowingly ended up with some dark frames.

If the review was based only on performance, I would give it just 1 star. I gave it 3 just because the ease of use factor. The remote set up is so much easier than previous models. With that said, I want something that will consistently flash on demend, and I'm unhappy with this product. I'd feel more confident with my 800s.

By the way, I'm a full time professional with two busy studios, and I'm very hard on my flash units. I'm disappointed that I can't get some thing more like the SB-800. I loved that 5th battery add on. That completely changed the was that unit worked for us. Why not offer that on the 900 and 910?

BH was great as usual. Shipped that day. Got it two days later.

    Comments about Nikon SB-910 AF Speedlight:

    This is my second SB-910. The functionality is amazing. A really like that the orange and green filters are included. This light is very powerful. In my tests I found I could use it for distances considerably beyond the range appearing in the display on the back. The only drawback is that one needs a course in how to use all the functionality provided.

      Comments about Nikon SB-910 AF Speedlight:

      Really had a pleasant surprise with this purchase. I have had numerous ttl flashes before, but never owned a Nikon flash. Their CLS system & HSS really works & makes life much easier. I never really used the ttl on other flashes...used manual almost all the time. The CLS system really seems to work & the remote triggering system is reliable. I had quit using my radio triggers long ago due to being unreliable and went to wired and slave modes. I'm looking at replacing my other flashes with more Nikon flash purchases.

                  I already own a 910, two 900 and two800. I bought
                  the 910 first because the 900's kept freezing up.The 910 worked well, it slipped out of my hands falling straight down, looks ok but doesn't work. I've sent it in for a repair, and ordered another one because I didn't want to be without one. All three models worked well except for freezing up.

                            Adding Nikon to my photographic arsenal. 1. The B&H procurement was seamless and outstanding.2. The SB-910 meets all my expectations. Considering I am a Canon user, I am very satisfied with this flash. 3. I read the manual as I waited for delivery. I successfully used the lens on camera and off camera immediately with little reference back to the manual.Very happy with the flash and have no complaints.

                              Excellent device, easy to use. I was not able to compare with its smaller brother SB700, but all reviews shows extra power light suggesting this extra is worth paying.

                                            The closest thing I have to a complaint is that Nikon doesn't sell snap-on color filters, but B&H offers several nice enough alternatives, I suppose.

                                            Otherwise, it's my second one, and so far just like the first, it doesn't everything it's supposed to, and it does it well.
