question

I am new for flash with wildlife photo. What does it mean Zoom HeadFull Frame: 24 - 105 mm ? can it be used for 200-500 mm zoom lens and D300 camera?
Asked by: CHING
This flash will work well with a D300, which is a crop sensor camera. to push the light further, the head zooms as you increase your focal length. Yes, it will be fine with your 200-500 zoom up to the rated GN of 170' at ISO 100. After that you will have to kick up the ISO on your camera.
