KEH had this big guy for a good price. My D300 is no longer accurate with TTL flash, so that gives me a good excuse to play around with the pre-iTTL speedlights, and I've always wanted the SB-16. Just didn't realize how big it was!! It tips the scale at 520 grams with batteries, dwarfs the SB-80DX and SB-800. The trigger voltage is a safe 4.7v. The only thing I don't like is the non TTL auto aperture settings. At the D300's lowest ISO, 100, the choices are f/4 and f/8(my Pentax AF280 is the same). Many flashes let you shoot at 2.8 at ISO 100. The SB-80DX allows f/2 the largest f stop at 100 ISO. My favorite feature is the second wink light that helps provide fill when bouncing. And puts catchlights in their eyes without the bounce card. And it supports TTL with most compatible film cameras.
