Nikon SB-910 Speedlight

Nikon's replacement of the SB-900 i-TTL Speedlight, the Nikon SB-91, is a fast, powerful, portable light that features a re-designed menu system and controls. It will be available from 15 December 2011 with an RRP of £449.99.

The SB-910 offers extensive opportunities for on-camera or wireless flash photography and offers enhanced operation with an extended zoom range of 17-200mm and three illumination patterns for total control over flash coverage. It offers Centre-weighted, Even and Standard illumination patterns and bounce flash capability is provided through a head that can be tilted up to 90º, down to 7º and rotated horizontally through 180º to the right and to the left.

The thermal protection system has also been improved allowing more optimal heat detection and recycling time management. Menus are clearer and the selector dial incorporates a groove so you can feel when you change settings. Illuminated buttons offer better visibility in the dark and the SB-910 includes hard cover (plastic) colour filters that are more durable and easier to attach.


Main Features:

  • Professional i-TTL (intelligent TTL) Speedlight: compatible with FX- and DX-format SLR cameras. Part of the Nikon Creative Lighting System, it offers total control over flash coverage.
  • Guide number: 34 (STD)/39 (CW)/31 (EVEN) (FX-format, ISO 100, m, at 35 mm)
  • Maximum guide number: 54.5 (CW, FX-format, ISO 100, m, at 135 mm)
  • Centre-weighted, Even and Standard illumination patterns: Centre-weighted mode concentrates illumination to the centre of the frame, useful when using a telephoto lens. Even mode diffuses light evenly across the frame, useful when taking group shots. Standard mode offers a standard balance of power and light distribution.
  • Multi-step auto zoom covers wide 17-200mm zoom range.
  • Refined ergonomics for intuitive operation. Boasts a large LCD screen, clear menu systems, conveniently placed controls and illuminated buttons that offer more comfortable operation in low light.
  • Automatic detection of sensor format: automatically recognizes FX- or DX-format cameras.
  • High-speed recycling time of 2.3 seconds when using LR6 NiMH batteries.
  • AF-Assist illumination: compatible with Multi-CAM 3500 FX/DX AF sensor module.
  • Bounce capability: rotates 180º horizontally to the right and to the left; tilts up to 90º and down to 7º.
  • Thermal protection system: warns of excessive heat buildup during high intensity firing.
  • Hard-type incandescent and fluorescent colour filters included.
  • Automatic filter detection: Speedlight automatically adjusts the attached camera’s colour temperature settings according to the colour of the filter being used.
  • Firmware can be upgraded via the storage media in the attached camera.

The Nikon SB-910 Speedlight will be available from 15 December 2011 with an RRP of £449.99

Can't see the point of producing a new one the SB900 is easy enough to use. Surely it would be cheaper to release an upgrade to the SB900 menu instead? I suspect Nikon have only revamped the SB900 to the SB910 to be able to up the price by 100 or so and maybe make more sales. I am suprised that Nikon havn't researched into producing a continuous light SB unit instead to fit on top of their cameras, especially they have in their camera lineup dual mode cameras ie stills and video.

More fantasy for the "dealer's delights" with extremely deep pockets. My SB600 serves me perfectly well.

Same here Mike, The old SB-800 is a good tool, Looked at the SB-900 when it launched, Sure there where a few changes and probably for the better, But could not justify dumping the 800 ( despite serious used prices ) for a few changes, On top of that I had grown accustomed to the 800's oddities controls wise and was not up for more learning newer knobs & buttons etc....Grin

Thats probably an age thing.....LOL....Smile

If the need for a second speedlight should become viable, The SB-700 will probably do the job, But that said the price of these things makes one look very closely at the portable studio heads that run of power packs, We have all the other studio gear like stands etc.....!!!!!

This lark of running 3/4/5 mega bucks speedlights reminds me of the guys who thought up " SLI " and its counterpart system, Where you fitt 2/3/4 mega bucks graphic boards to a computer just to play a handfull of games that are written for this much graphic grunt....Sad

Thier bosses thought they where heros.....Grin Sales sales, Cash cash, Sell sell, You just can't sell enough of anything these days.......!!!!!!!!

Let me see.....Grin Good high ISO performance Mmmmm Needs less light....Mmmmm Smaller flashguns that are not that expensive spring to mind....Wink
