Generally, I am into wildlife photography and have a faint idea about lighting, but the SB- 910 knows exactly what it’s doing. The functionality of this flash is so smooth that my overall experience is unparalleled. With each passing day, I am exploring the features of this flash and having an astonishing experience.

If you’re a first time user, then SB-910 can be intricate to understand. But, if you’re a Nikon user like me and have already used SB-600 and SB-900, then SB-910 can be a welcome change. My experience with SB-910 has been overwhelming. I knew that Nikon had been working on heating issue for quite some time, but I had not expected them to resolve the issue in SB-910.

Awesome performance

The SB-910 has all those features that were expected from SB-900. The shut down related issues of SB-900 were pain-stacking and intolerable. The SB-910 gets full marks for its awesome performance. Though it might seem costly to some, but I find it completely worth the price. The professional photographers might need to carry external battery pack. It would be relatively heavier, but the great performance of flash is worth the additional weight.

It recycles extremely fast

I have been learning photography for quite some time now. I started with SB-600, but it had some shortcomings, so I had to move on to SB-900. Now, after the release of SB-910, I finally feel that my search is over. It has a user-friendly interface, which is easy-to-use. There are many features in this flash, which I am gradually learning. My experience with this flash has been positive. It recycles extremely fast, thereby helping click a whole range of amazing pictures.

Nikon has given me immense relief!

I have been using Nikon flash for many years now. I have had some heating related issues with SB-900, and I was wondering what could be done. By releasing SB-910, Nikon has given me immense relief, as I don’t face the heating issue now. The color correction gels on the SB-910 are better built and harder. It’s difficult to differentiate between them, but in terms of performance SB-910 is better than SB-900. It is fun playing around and taking pictures with this flash. Since it takes much longer to overheat, so as a professional photographer I give it a thumbs up.

In fact, the SB-910 is Nikon’s flagship flash. It comes in the league of the brightest and the fastest camera flashes available in the market. The SB-910 is a modified version of SB-900. It adds hard plastic color correction filters for replacing the wimpy gels present in the SB-900.

These configurations were designed for assisting photographers to take pictures in virtually every shooting scenario. The flash head rotates to the same extent in both directions. On the first look, the SB-910 appears to be bigger and stronger as compared to its predecessors. The position of button controls has been changed.

The menu button has been replaced with a zoom button. This aids in easier and faster access to the configuration menu of the flash. The buttons consist of a backlight, which can help in low light. When compared to SB-900, there has been modification with respect to head and body of the SB-910. The user would also find a release button on the battery section. The Mode, Menu and top three buttons below the LCD of this flash are lit. The OK and power buttons never get lit.

Compatibility

The SB-910 features improved graphic user interface and dedicated menu button for easy and quick modification of settings. This flash unit can act as a wireless commander for up to three different flash groups. The SB-910 consists of four AA batteries. The battery life of this flash is great.

Light Flexibility

This flash offers the user the option to zoom up to 200mm. The flash automatically sets to the DX or FX angle view. In this flash, the user has the option to alter the “shape” of light. It can transform a highly concentrated light into an evenly distributed one. In order to shoot with different settings, you would have to understand the light modification feature present in this flash. The SB-910 features pinnacle level picture quality, which places this flash miles ahead from its competitors.

Performance

If you are able to set up all the features properly, then this flash works exceptionally well. It is efficient in pumping out the power and fast recycling. The SB-900 had issues related to overheating, which has been effectively dealt in this version. In order to reap best results, you need to consider hitting the flash gently.

Exposure accuracy will come from your chosen camera and your technique. It doesn’t come under the functionality of this flash. I-TTL mode of the camera controls the flash. There’s hardly any noise from this flash; just a negligible noise especially when you use excessive power.

Versatility

The SB-910 consists of an upgraded interface, which features a dedicated Menu button and illuminated buttons for its proper control in low light. An enhanced thermal cut out protection has been used for slowing down the recycling instead of completely cutting off the flash. The thermal cut out protection prevents the flash tube from overheating.

The SB-910 is ideal for those photographers who intend to have a flash that is free of overheating related issues. This flash features a wide range of high quality features, such as streamlined controls, wide zoom range and multiple illumination patterns that make it one of the best flash units in the market.
