Great link, I am ready to take the leap from my SB-28's and guessing it, Is there any more info on the wireless system on the site?
I have 2 D70's and a D2h. If I'm correct I'll need a SB800 as my main and can use the SB600 for the other 3, is that correct?
Thanks in advance

Thanks for the link. Does anyone other than me find the Nikon websites difficult to navigate? It seems that one should be able to go to nikonusa.com and link to any relevant site. I have not figured out how to do that. I may just be missing something. Any helfful hints?

I have the same complaint about the website. I get better results when I go to the tech support section and the Nikon Knowledge Database. Also, I have found the USA telephone tech help people to be very helpful in trying to get to the correct webpage, and their service is free.

Not necessarily the answer you're looking for, but I hope it helps.

Hi Gang, I'm having a heck of a time trying to figure this whole speedlight thing. I just purchase A D-40 which is my first ever DSLR,but I've been around cameras and Nikons particularly as long as I can remember. I'm no big fan of flash since they always gave me a differant look and issues I didn't want. Ibout a cheapo auto-focus TTL flash unit a while ago so I could play with it but I really don get what it's suppossed to do and how it's doing it. I used it on the D-40 around the house and it just seems to wash all my pictures out. I get the impression that this is really a "For film camera flash Unit".No problem I still own have and use my FTN as well as my N6006. My question to get down to it is I'm getting the impression that the unit I need for my D-40 is an SB-400 or SB-600 or the SB-800. All fairly pricey but if I have to do it I will.Any guidance at all is much appreciated. I really don't mind doing my own research but I seem to be spinning in circles here. I thank any who respond in advance..David

Hi Guys & Gals.

When I bought my D70 a couple of years ago, I soon purchased an SB-800 & an SB 600. It took me about two weeks to figure out the instructions in the camera's and both flash's manuals.

Bought the wireless "trigger" and played with the trio around the house, much to my better half's dismay & annoyance. With the help of the guy who sold me the equipment at the camera store I was able to finally master the "magic".

Since then I haven't taken very many pictures utilizing flash. Now every month or so I have to sit down and figure it out all over again.

Make sure that you read precisely what functionality your proposed flash will have for the camera that you intend to use it on.

I, for instance, have a D200 camera and a SB80DX gun and, having now checked the Nikon site, have identified that the only functions available are 'A' and manual.
Slightly more variations on my D100, but only slightly.

I'm not sure precisely what flash gun Nikon actually recommend for the D200 camera.

Singularly unimpressed.

All of the newer Nikon DSLRs work best with flashes that support Nikon CLS (Creative Lighting System), which is far more advanced than any of the older systems. These flashes include the SB400, SB600, SB800, and the new SB900(not out yet).

My main camera is a Nikon D200 and I have a D70 as a backup. I use SB800s and SB600s on both cameras.

Nikon CLS is a very advanced system that uses a series of preflashes to send commands to remotes as well as measure reflected energy from the subject in order to set flash power.

The reason the older TTL systems were abandoned is that they depended on a reflection of light energy from the film itself, during the exposure, to determine when the exposure was correct. In DSLRs the reflectivity idea was tried in the D100 and it didn't work so well. So, Nikon went an entirely different direction - CLS.

CLS works very well, but as you pointed out, it is not fully compatible with older cameras, and older flashes are not fully compatible with newer cameras.

I invite you to read my blogs about CLS.

Hey guys, I also shoot D200's, SB800 as primary flash and I have 2 SB600's that I use for remote flashes. I must admit that I am struggling getting consistant results with flash photography. How do you recommend setting up the camara and flash for mobile point and shoot of people and things. I also use a Quantum Turbo SC battery pack.

Russ, I just followed your advice and was amazed by all the valued information you have shared! One reader suggested you should write a book, but you have in effect done that with your blog!

Well done - the engineer in you shines in your methodical, well laid out articles.

I have bookmarked your site and will visit again soon!

Thanks again for sharing.

Cheers!

Hey Russ,

I just started looking over your blog... great stuff. I just have one idea or recommendation. It would be more work, but you obviously enjoy using your time to help others. Anyway, in a couple of the blogs so far i found that i wasn't sure exactly what you were talking about when talking about certain things. Most of it i know what you mean, but an idea may be to post a couple pictures with your blogs. When you mention lightsphere, some people may not know what it is. When you mention attaching brackets, etc. some people may be confused. Of course, since you are taking up your time, the reader could just google stuff and see pictures, but it is just an idea.

Hi Tony,

I'm glad you find my blogs useful, and thank you for your inputs. I recommend you read them in their numbered order, as I sometimes refer back to things I discussed in earlier articles.

I enjoy writing these articles for myself as much as others. It is where I put all the info I have learned about the Nikon flash system over the years, much of which was not documented well anywhere else. In fact many of the early books about CLS had some pretty serious mistakes. Then, when I want to remember the details about something, I go back and read my own articles.

I write these articles under the assumption that the reader has very little understanding about CLS but a fair amount of general photography knowledge and experience, so I dig into the the CLS and lighting areas in minute detail while leaving the rest to Nikonians Forums and Google.

For instance, I assume the average reader will know about the Gary Fong Light Sphere, but that he/she won't really understand the differences between TTL and TTL-BL. So far, this assumption has proven to be correct for the most part. However, I do answer a lot of much more basic questions in the comments after the blog and by email.

Please feel free to email questions or feedback to me or post in the comments areas.

Russ; I too am a novice at flash photography, although I do quite a bit of it. However, I know little of the science of it, so simply rely on the 'try-try, and try again' method. Thank goodness for digatal. I read a little of your CLS practicle guide and bookmarked it. It's wonderful and will be very helpful. I just wanted to say a big thank-you. Many thanks. Lee

Hi Russ,
I also am one of your fans and found your blog on bounce lighting to be extremely helpful. I'm the guy who, in another forum, was having problems getting yellow skin tones with SB800 bounce flash. Using your suggestions and one other, helped solve my problem. The first being: 1) set flash to iTTL/FP to help seperate flash system from camera 2) set camera to manual 3) use a higher shutter speed - 1/125 sec in my case, to minimise influence of ambient light. 4) Use the orange gel over the flash to help take out possible yellow skin tones. 5) And my own idea (sort of) turn the flash head to 90 degrees with orange gel in place, with expodisc over the lens and take a custom reading off the ceiling. "whala" (I'm sure this is spelled wrong) Perfect bounce lighting, great natural skin tones. I may never use available light in these situations again! Thanks again Russ. You saved me much time and effort with your suggestions. Happy Holidays to you and your family!

Forgive me if I'm asking something that has already been asked and answered...

I'm stuck. I photograph a lot of babies and children - usually at their homes using a portable studio setup.

I'm at the point where I'm about to either buy a couple of strobes, OR, get another Speedlight SB-900 and use it as a second light source behind a second softbox.

So... do I go for strobes or another speedlight?

Can someone just bullet-point me the advantages of both scenarios?

Many thanks indeed.

This pinned post is for links to documentation and links to general information about Nikon CLS Speedlights.

You post probably should have been a new post with different subject line. In the main page of the forum, just click on 'Post' option just above the forum navigation bar.

You might also want to include some additional information

How to you want to power your setup?
How much money do you want to spend?
Do you want to use light modifiers like umbrellas or soft boxes?

You should also consider if you know how to manually control strobes.

Check out the SB-700 Sample Images. There are some samples of light modification using white paper, tracing paper and a pane glass. Nikon also show the use of the SG3-IR to suppress the commander trigger flash.

You can use these tips, even if you do not own an SB-700.

You will need to look through the post, as there is a time limit on being able to edit a post. I have posted updated links a couple of times, since I was not able to go back and edit my previous post for an updated link.

It is also possible that the entire Nikon site is being updated with possible new products and many links have been disabled during this update period.

The SB-910 is the newest of the speedlights and I'm trying to get as much information about this Nikon product before my purchase. What I'm looking for is some hands comments from product end users you.
I have the D7000 and if anyone has this camera with the SB-910 please post any pro/con comments. If you also have recommendations of another speedlight product please also comment.

Some sample pamphlets. They also include setup instructions that could be applied to otter Speedlights.

So this may be a silly question. As I said I have the Nikon D7000 and I'm looking at getting the SB-910. What accessories would I also need to get to us the flash remotely? Would I also need the SU-4 Wireless Remote TTL Flash Controller? Is there anything else I would need?

Nothing. The D7000 has a built in flash that can act as a Commander/Master for for Remote SB-700/600/800/900/910 in wireless TTL or Manual Remote. The SB-700/800/900/910 all have a built-in SU-4 control port.

Pretty old link. Have you scrolled down and looked at the many other links provided, including some updated links for older pages being replaced.

It appear the page no longer exist at Nikon USA or Nikon global sites.

Hello there,

I'm buying D3200 in a week or so & i already have SB 800. Do i need to buy anything else to remote flash photography which i'll be doing so for the 1st time as i have really been inspired by you guys.
What is the set up i require?

I own D70 & till now was just doing some bounce flash & nothing else.

The page no longer exist. Most likely Nikon brought it down because they did not want to update the interactive pages for the D700/900/910 features.

Russ,

I have to say thank you as well for your CLS blog. I learned a ton in just reading for 10 minutes. I have a much better idea of how the speedlight works now. Thank you again.

Sincerely,
Bill
