"Does the Flash Nikon SB-N7 works well with the P7100 Nikon Coolpix?"


México, D. F, MX
          

Hello

Somebody knows if the new SB-N7 Speedlight can works well if I use it with my P7100 coolpix?

I already have a SB900 for my Nikon DSLR, but it is very bulky!!

The question is because this Flash was release for the Nikon 1 series.

I appreciate your help.

The SB-N7 is only compatible with the Nikon V1 and V2 due to the flash shoe interface.
http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/acil/accessories/speedlight_sb-n7/index.htm

According to Nikon USA...the SB400, SB600, SB700, SB800, SB900 and SB910.

I didn't see anything that said it was I-TTL only...so perhaps you can find a smaller used flash like the SB23, SB22/SB22s, SB-30 to add a bit more light. I can't seem to find anything definitive. Sorry.

I agree with Anthony, the P7100 and P7000 have a standard flash shoe and can accomodate "normal" Nikon Speedlights and they work perfectly in i-TTL.

I have tried an SB-23 and it will work well but only in manual mode - so you have to adjust aperture according to distance of subject in the usual (manual) way and the SB-23 has to be set to M.

Thanks, Clive.

It seems that Nikon have finally integrated TTL within the Coolpix lineup with accessory speedlights (YAY!) and older (read: film era) speedlights can be used in Manual or Auto (letting the speedlight determine flash exposure) modes.

Thank you very much for your advices, comments and time.

Hi Eduardo,

Yes the SB-400 is the perfect size for a small camera.

Just a small caution - using the SB-400 you will not be able to set it to "Master" and control other speedlights. The P7X00's are not able to control other speedlights with their built-in flash but if one of the higher spec speedlights is fitted to the camera then you can control remote speedlights.

If you are not planning on controlling other remote speedlights then I think you will be happy with the SB-400.
