There are 2 ways in which I think I need to review this speedlight. First, as a standalone, all around flash - it's good. The controls are fairly easy to use, it gives a reasonable power output, and for most beginners it will do a great job. No matter what I think it's worth the cost, as it's a very handy piece of equipment. I did have to read the manual to work out how to change the settings, which considering it's the first manual I've read in around 3 years, you'll guess that was slightly annoying for me. But it'll do the job. However the downfall for me, is that I also own the big brother to this - the SB ... Read the complete review

I brought one of these flashes to accompany a back up camera body that I had when I used to run a wedding photography business and it did it's job without being as expensive as the Nikon SB800. It will eat batteries when used regularly but then it needs to, to omit the light that it does. It is easy to attach to the camera body, it is just a case of having to remove a tiny plastic slide from the top of the Nikon camera body and then you slide it forwards into place at the top of the camera and flick a very small lever to stop it coming out of place and falling to the floor. When purchased it came with a velcro flapped padded bag which it ... Read the complete review

I have owned a Nikon Speedlight SB 600 flashgun for a few years and use it regularly. It never fails no matter what light condition it is. The i-TTL mode works perfectly with both my Nikon D70 and D700 and it can always get the right light and exposure. The remote control and the little stand which comes with the flashgun is very useful for creative lighting and the automatic light/exposure control works equally well in the remote setup. The automatic setting works well in most situations while flash compensation can be easily set up by the camera or the flashgun buttons. Although the minimum distance in the specification is 0.6m I have no problem even with ... Read the complete review

I wanted a flash for my Nikon D90 as i was not to happy with the harsh shadows that the on board flash produces. Looking at the option i decided to get a SB600. The flash comes with a pouch and a hot shoe stand. I found the bounce head very effective at helping me to eliminate shadows however the flash had does not rotate horizontally. I obtained a Stofen diffuser which mounts on the front and further helps to soften the light. After a few weeks of using the flash off camera I decided to purchase another so that I could get a lil more creative. Both flash guns are controlled by the camera and together using the CLS system produce excellent results every time. Battery ... Read the complete review
