"sb 25 or sb 26"

Hello My fellow Nikonians,

I am still searching for a flash which I can use with my F90x. I think I want the SB-26. But can anyone tell me the differences between the sb26 and sb25?

thanks a 1.000.000,001


Have a nice day!

I still have a SB-25 and have used the SB-26
Major difference is that the SB-26 can be used as a stand alone flash or as a wireless remote slave, trigered by a built-in flash or another flash on the hot shoe.
Same GN, almost same angle coverage (18mm vs 20mm on the SB-25), autofocus assist red beam light, etc. A good buy.

Have a great time

Thanks JRP,

Does this mean that I can use the SB-25 as main flash and have the same specs as with the sb-26? (except for the angle coverage)? As I understand it that means that if I want to experiment with several flashes I can purchase an SB-26 later.

Have a nice day!

Yes, pretty much so. The only other spec you'll be missing the ability to make that SB25 into a remote flash but you can use the SB25 with an SU4 to make up for that. With the GN and other programming features being the same, you'd be good to go!

Have you looked at the SB-50DX? Has some SB-28'ish features, but not all... Namely (I don't like the CR123A battery requirement, I prefer AA) but it's only $159 at B&H w/ USA Warranty... $149 for int. version.


Just a thought.

Regards,

Nathan

I have and love the SB50-dx. It's a great flash, but it's not in the same league as the SB25,26 & 28 in regards to GN. The 25/26/28 (and 24?) have like twice the GN of the SB50. The SB26 is very cool because it's like a high power version of the SB50. I must have one
