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.

          I own 2 SB-910 flashes. Love them!! A big upgrade from using the SB600 I was previously using. I photograph weddings and find the recycle time, and power output to be exactly what I need. For wedding receptions, I use one flash on camera and the other flash off camera on a light stand. The results are amazing!

                Now I have three of these, but these two I bought for photographing patients in our prosthodontic office. This works great and is simple to set up, although there is plenty to learn and experiment with - part of the fun. For the moment, I like the umbrella set-up best as the light is soft.

                  This SB910 is my third Speedlight that I am adding to my kit. It joins another 910 and a 900 to be used for Nikon Creative Lighting System. I use them with in Commander/Remote mode but also with Pocket Wizard TT5, Mini TT1, and Zone Controller to boost their range and give dependable firing for mixed lighting shoots where I used to use big power packs and strobes. These are expensive but powerful and feature-rich flash units. I actually bought a third party flash to blend into my system for much less money and quickly came to the conclusion that I suck it up and pay for the best unit to have, and returned the other one. I thought of removing a star for it's cost, but when you consider the power and features, I believe it justifies the price. The zoom range is amazing, and you can get a lot of modifiers for these speedlights. Highly recommend!

                    This is my 2nd SB910. I would high recommend it works and works. I shoot a lot of events and find that has enough flash power to light up a room. I use a bolt battery pack with it which is a must have if you are going to use it. One reason I have chosen the 910 over the 700 is that fact that you can use the a battery pack. When I am shooting a wedding or event the last thing I want to do is stop to change batteries. Depending on how you want to tip the flash it also has port to do that.

                        Bottom line: This thing does what it's supposed to do. I use it for all types of flash applications, including fill-flash for daytime shots or multi-flash portraits with my only other flash, an SB-600. I may not be a pro, but I know good quality when I see it. It's the perfect accessory for my 2 Nikon DSLRs. I may have to get another one for even more fun. My only suggestion: Save time and read the manual - Learning what it can do will open your mind to new possibilities.

                        Begin with fresh batteries. I appreciate the sync port which allows a secure connection to a wireless trigger or sync cord when used out of sight. Integrates perfectly with Nikon camera for ITTL use. I use these in manual mode as often as TTL.

                              This flash does it all. I really appreciate that it includes incandescent and fluorescent filters and a white box. It providea excellent illumination for dance floor photos and covers a wide area.

                                What can I say: it's a top-of-the-line Nikon that performs very nicely, as you'd expect.
                                If I could change anything it would be the remote communications. I would rather that radio instead of optical was available so that remotes could be placed anywhere and behind things (like inside light boxes).

                                  This is the 4th Nikon SB-910 flash unit I've purchased! Not because the first 3 failed, but because the first 3 worked flawlessly! I just needed one more unit for studio and location work. All of my SB-910 flashes have they own Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 (also available from B&H) These units have been everything I need for a small one-man photo business. They're the quality you't expect from Nikon and I use them as a single unit on the camera or as multiple units in the studio, outdoors, or on location anywhere. They work great. SHIPPING FROM B&H WAS FAST AND THE UNIT WAS WELL PACKED AND ARRIVED IN PERFECT CONDITION. THE B&H PRICE WAS THE BEST TOO!

                                    I love this flash! I used the 900 for a long time but upgraded to the 910 because my two 900's were stolen. The 910 doesn't overheat and shut off like the 900's did and so it's a definite upgrade. I love bouncing the light for a nice soft light, or using just a hint of power for just a little fill. I like flash that looks natural and with lesser power and bouncing you really have the capabilities to make flash lighting look soft, natural, flattering, and beautiful. I bounce off the wall or ceiling and can do so in any degree I like. I also like using it on and off camera.
                                    If you're going to use flash it's really worth it to invest in the best.
