Nikon announced its new flagship camera flash, the Speedlight SB-910 that “harnesses powerful flexibility and control for the revolutionary Creative Lighting System (CLS). Nikon’s new Speedlight features a wide zoom range covering the most popular focal lengths as well as FX/DX-format identification that optimizes zoom settings based on the camera body.
The Nikon SB-910 provides easy operation and menu navigation, featuring illuminated function buttons, a dedicated Menu button with quick access to custom settings and an improved LCD screen graphic user interface. Its new Thermal Cut-Out function offers protection against damage to the flash panel and body from overheating during continuous flash use. It uses new hard-type color compensation filters for fluorescent and incandescent color temperature balancing, offering additional durability and heat-resistance.
The SB-910 has three illumination patterns (standard, center-weighted and even) which are designed to match almost any shooting situation when utilizing the speedligh. It supports Nikon’s wireless TTL operation and can be used as an on-camera flash, a wireless commander with control or as a remote speedlight triggered by other SB-910 speedlights, SB-700 speedlights, SU-800 Wireless Commander or the built-in speedlight set to Commander Mode on compatible Nikon D-SLR cameras.
Coming in mid-December 2011, the Nikon Speedlight SB-910 flash is priced at $549.95.
