Find products that fit. With Nikon's versatile SB Speelight you'll experience advanced lighting flexibility and power that go well beyond the capabilities of your camera's built-in flash. Compatible with Nikon digital SLR cameras like the D80 and D , it offers the demanding photographer precise illumination control and a range of creative shooting options. The SB's "intelligent through-the-lens" i-TTL exposure control works together with your Nikon camera to provide the correct lighting for your photos every time.

All of the necessary connections are made by mounting the flash to your camera's accessory shoe. This sophisticated flash can adjust its output based on your camera's settings.

It even provides color temperature information to compatible Nikon cameras to adjust for proper white balance. The flash head can be tilted and swiveled to bounce light off of surrounding room surfaces for indirect lighting effects.

The included snap-on light diffuser softens harsh shadows. And when ambient light levels get too dim for accurate shooting, a powerful auto focus-assist beam emitted by the flash helps you capture sharp, in-focus images. A cool stroboscopic mode lets you fire a quick series of flashes to capture multiple images of a moving subject on a single frame. Use this mode to analyze your partner's golf swing or record the graceful, flowing movement of a ballet dancer.

In addition to its fully automatic operations, the SB also provides numerous custom functions including a manual mode. A large LCD panel on the back makes reading important exposure data easy. And changing your settings is a snap thanks to thoughtfully designed controls. The SB can also act as a "master" unit in a multiple-flash system.

Transmitting wireless signals, this flash can trigger additional SB Speedlights or SB flash units mounted off-camera, for sensational lighting effects. Note: For use only with compatible Nikon cameras. Requires 4 "AA" batteries not included. Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences with other customers.

The cameras that are compatible are broken down into 10 groups. The flash's functions will vary depending on the camera, lens, and aperture you are using. Please consult the owner's manual for your camera and the SB to determine actual flash features. Here are the 10 groups:. This system offers additional flash shooting possibilities with digital cameras by taking advantage of a camera's digital communication capabilities.

The SB offers these major features:. The FL-G1 balances the color of light from the flash to match that of fluorescent light. The TN-A1 balances the color of light from the flash to match that of incandescent or tungsten light.

You can purchase additional gels to create interesting effects by changing the light from the flash to different colors. Slow sync Flash: The flash is controlled at a slow shutter speed to obtain the correct exposure for both the main subject and the background in low-light situation or at night. It is recommended that you use a tripod when you are using this mode due to the slow shutter speeds to prevent camera shake.

Red-Eye reduction: To prevent the center of your subject's eyes from appearing red in color pictures, the SB fires three flashed at reduced output just before the picture is taken. Note: You can combine this flash with the slow-sync flash.

With front-curtain sync, the blur occurs in front of the subject. Diffusion Dome: When this is placed over the flash head of the BS, you can diffuse the light creating extremely soft light with virtually no shadows. Wide-flash Adapter: When the built-in wide-flash adapter is used, close-up flash shooting can be performed. The built-in wide-flash adapter and the diffusion dome diffuses the light from the flash to soft shadows.

Usually used when a 14mm to 23mm lens is mounted on the camera. Using the Diffusion Dome over the flash head will soften the shadows even further. Bounce flash: When taking close-ups with flash, you can use the built in wide flash adapter in conjunction with the diffusion dome to create extremely soft, diffused lighting with virtually no shadows, while maintaining balanced lighting for the main subject and the background. You can tilt and rotate the flash head to bounce the light off the ceiling or walls.

This is a good technique to use when shooting indoors, because you get more natural looking pictures of people with softer shadows. There is a built-in bounce card on this flash that when used can create a highlight in the subjects eyes making them more vibrant.

Auto Aperture flash: Built-in sensor that measures the flash illumination reflected from the subject and controls the flash output in combination with data automatically transmitted from the camera and lens to the SB, including the ISO sensitivity value and exposure compensation value as well as the aperture and focal length of the lens.

TTL auto flash: In this mode, the flash illumination that is reflected back from the subject is detected by the camera TTL auto flash sensor and the camera automatically controls the flash output level to give the correct exposure. Non TTL auto flash: The SB's built in sensor measures the flash illumination reflected from the subject, automatically controlling the SB's light output to give the correct exposure.

This allows you to make exposure compensation easily by varying the aperture set on the camera or lens. Manual Mode: The SB features three manual modes:. When the built in wide flash adapter is used or the Nikon Diffusion Dome used when a 14 mm to 23 mm lens is mounted on camera is attached, the zoom-head position is automatically set to match a 14mm or 17mm lens.

You can also be set the position manually so that the zoom head position will not change when the zoom on the lens changes. Batteries: The SB can use any of the following types of batteries: Alkaline-manganese 1. If you are using quick recycling batteries, there is an extra attachable battery compartment that you will need to use in order for the SB to function.

Standby Function: If the SB and camera are not being used, the standby function will automatically activate after 40 seconds, switching the SB to standby mode to conserve battery power.
