Nikon 4802B overview

  • 1Description

Fully compatible with the latest Nikon digital and film SLR cameras, the SB-600 AF Speedlight is positioned to be the mid range flash in the Speedlight line-up. The flash features i-TTL control as part of the new Creative Lighting System (CLS), being introduced with the D2H digital SLR camera.

The new i-TTL system supports Advanced Wireless Lighting and versatile functions for up to four groups of Speedlights, with 3 remote i-TTL speedlight groups controlled through the master SB-800 or with the "Commander" function on the D70s, D70, and D200 cameras. i-TTL Balanced Fill-Flash control employs Nikon's Advanced Data Communication system to introduce an improved method for the monitor pre-flash and wireless operation that marks an evolution in higher precision over Nikon's acclaimed D-TTL Balanced Fill-Flash control system and forms the core of the new Creative Lighting System.

Multiple Flash Exposure Modes
  • i-TTL Balanced Fill-Flash with Nikon D2H and D70 (or newer models)
  • D-TTL Balanced Fill-Flash with Nikon D1 series or D100
  • TTL Auto Flash with many film SLRs, including the Nikon F5, F100, N80 (F80), N75 (F75), N65 (F65) and FM3A

    Nikon 4802B reviews

    SB-600 AF Speedlight i-TTL Shoe Mount Flash (Guide No. 98'/30 m at 35mm) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 868.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the SB-600 I needed a third strobe to add to my CLS collection, which included an SB 800 and an SB 600. That left me with a choice between another SB 600 or an SB 900. I choose the 600 for numerous reasons, the biggest being the price difference. The 600 can do almost everything that the 900 can do at a fraction of the price. I can put my D80 in commander mode and go wireless with the SB 600. Not only can I go wireless but its power is great for its size. I have never been in a one strobe situation and not had the SB 600 answer the call of duty. It is a great unit that has worked well in numerous conditions and fulfilled various lighting needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mid Range Nikon Flash Purchased the SB-600 for my new Nikon D90. Currently have the SB-800 that I used with my Nikon D70, so enjoyed the features of that unit. I was looking for a smaller unit at first, so I tried the SB-400 and promptly returned it. While the SB-400 is a great introductory accessory flash, it wasn't powerful enough and was limited to TTL, but I often use the TTL BL (back lighting) mode as I often use the flash for fill light outdoors. I was disappointed that the SB-600 did not include a diffuser, so I ordered the SBM #0105 Supreme Flash Diffuser and it has worked great. I was hoping for a slightly smaller unit than the SB-800, but overall I am very happy with the SB-600.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flash for my D90! I love this flash! It is perfect for my primary use-- photos indoors with bounced flash. The difference between having a bounceable unit versus the pop-up flash is unbelievable. Once you try it you will never go back. At nearly half the price of the SB-900 (which is beyond my budget), you can't go wrong with the SB-600. A big plus is being able to also rotate the head so you can still bounce off the ceiling in portrait mode, which is something you can't do with the SB-400. Wireless mode is also great, although it would be nice if it could work in commander mode like the SB-900. Overall, an awesome unit that fits my needs perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon SB600 I am a wedding photographer who has just switched over to digital,(probably the last one.) I have 2 Nikon D70s that I'm using. Also have a SB800. I have to say I wish I had bought 2 SB600s instead of the SB800. It's great, but not much more powerful, and has lot's of bells and whistles I don't need. With the D70s, I can use the pop-up flash as commander for wireless flash. When doing formals in the church, now I just set the two flashes on stands about 10-12 feet on each side of the camera and fire away.I don't need the extra power from the SB800. On camera the exposures with the 600 are always right on. Couldn't be better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this flash Wow, have my images improved after purchasing this flash and learning how to use it properly off-camera. I can't believe that I ever took photographs with the pop-up flash. The SB-600 is easy to use and set up. You can use it with the TTL control on Nikon camera, but I often prefer to use it in the manual setting. You can dial the flash down to 1/64th power and then step up in increments of 0.3 or 0.2 until you hit full power. Unless you're going for the hard-edge light look, diffuse the light by bouncing it off a wall or ceiling, or by shooting through a diffuser or umbrella. Great price on this unit at B&H.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great light, but didn't last. This was a great light to use, while it lasted. After only two months of light use, the rubber button on the side peeled off to reveal a very cheap looking inner spring. I super-glued it together, at which I had no further problems until a year later. Now suddenly the zoom function is completely shot, the light output is inconsistent, and the head swivels around unintentionally like a bobble-head doll. I use it very lightly and literally 2 months after the warranty is up, it begins to fall apart. I have a few friends that use these as well and have similar problems. It seems to be a very cheap build. I would recommend spending the extra money to get the SB-800.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Flash... This is the upgrade to my old SB-25 & SB-28. I needed this for the D5000's I bought, but I still do mostly 35mm. My SB-25 finally died after almost 20 years; the SB-28 I bought as a backup was never even opened until a few months ago. Unfortunately, the camera and flash fell; the camera is fine (good old N8008); the flash broke at the mount. Which gets me to the point: the SB-600 is a vast improvement - it has a metal shoe rather than the plastic one which broke, and I really like the twist mount over the old screw mount. The only criticism would be the lack of the 15 degree inferior setting for close ups. Otherwise this would have beena 5 star rating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for dedicated amateur I use it with a new D300 in a variety of outdoor and indoor settings. Recharge time is very fast although, shooting rapid fire, indoor sports for kids' games, the camera is ready faster than the flash after about three shots. Indoors shooting semi-portrait settings (head shots for charitable groups), the flexibility of the Speedlight is great. In most settings, its ability to bounce in almost any direction negates the need for reflectors. I have also used it as a remote flash using the camera's built-in as master. performance was flawless. Battery life seems pretty good -- I use commercial lithiums and have shot more than 100 shots and they are still useable.
