nikon 900 flash i did not realize nikon would make junk until i bought a SB900 flash,it over heat all the time. June 11, 2012
Flash bom! Recarga silenciosa! Tem o maior painel LCD iluminado traseiro de todos flash! Recarga rápida. Tem 3 luzes para auxiliar o autofoco. Design de vários V. É o mais bonito. Potente o número guia dele é alto. Vem com manual em espanhol e um guia excelente. Emite vários disparos para calcular a luz. Estou satisfeito, o meu faz muito tempo e não apresenta problema é muito confiável. A tampa das pinhas tem uma boa trava que não se rompe com tempo. As teclas são lumiadas na cor verde par visualizar a noite! Nikon é Nikon. May 8, 2012
Doesn't worth money Terrible Terrible Terrible, expensive and keeps overheating. I couldn't believe its from Nikon! May 6, 2012
Looks great !!! In reality Embarrassement.. I own three SB 900, which I use with my D3s, D2x and D800. Having all these 3 in my bag I still had to reach to my old SB800's to complete a job , especially.. eastern weddings and events.. My real challenge is the speed-light shutting off due to overheating. I have send 2 of mine for repairs..unfortunately returned repaired but not to my satisfaction. I was so embarrassed once, when I was at the MD governor's mansion shooting a major event and my SB 900s went kaput (overheat)..I hope Nikon will have a fix for this unit soon ? Sorry..If I am mean..but It is my bread and butter.... March 14, 2012
Overheating Well, suffice it to say, for this to be Nikon's flagship Speedlight. Im very disappointed. Basically $500.00 a pop and instead of fixing this issue that MOST owners have experienced, they choose to come out with the SB910, without offering a resolution to the 900's issues. Nice going Nikon. March 5, 2012
SB 900 flash (what a sham) I bought two of these what a fool I was, They are good for about 10 minutes, then they overheat, yep with two I can get 20 minutes of a wedding, they do shoot farther, but quit unexpectedly when you need them most. I use them and then have to switch to my 800, they also cause the batteries to corrodes from over heating fis is $250, and then it will happen each time it over heats February 26, 2012
SB-900 Flash This is not a professional Flash. If you shoot any event that requires shooting quickly and lot of people or anything, it will overheat and shut down. You're better off with the older SB-800. The first job I used my new SB-900 for was to photograph President Clinton with a lot of people who had paid a lot of money to be photographed with the President. After about 10 minutes, the 900 started beeping and then shut off. Fortunately, I have my 2 SB-800's handy ans was able to finish the job. Now Nikon want be to buy an SB-910 for $950. HOW 'BOUT FIXING MY 900 THAT I PAID 500 BUCKS FOR AND CAN'T USE.!!! February 14, 2012
Very nice!! First time I used a speedlight and already gave me a creative result. Very nice for low key photography. October 15, 2011
Great Flash I use this flash along with the sb800 off camera for cave lighting. Easy set up and has worked flawlessly. When instructing others with Nikon DSLR cameras that support Creative light system I can set up the lights and have them trigger the flash with their own camera. September 26, 2011
NOT an upgrade of the sb800 I shoot weddings and seniors with this product. The SB900 is not adequate for this purpose. It works ok under less demanding shooting circumstances, but always stops working before I am finished shooting under professional real world use. I have a shooting partner that has 2 SB800's, that have no such limitations. I always end up using the SB800 after my SB900 dies or now most of the time, if the 800 is available, I don't even bother with the 900. This was a terrible replacement for a product that does NOT out perform it's predecessor. September 21, 2011
Ugh ! Not a work horse ! We have three of these and they are all giving us the same problems. not firing and excessive overheating. I was up on a mountain in the snow, 62 degrees shooting couple shots at a very leisurely pace and it overheated in the first 20 minutes of shooting. Also we started to see that old rocking in the hot-shoe not connecting/firing problem more and more as we use them. It started out great but by the end of a busy season it was to unreliable and I had to go back to my 800's for consistency. Dumping them and Shopping for new flash. September 13, 2011
Would never have thought it would work Iwas at my son's football game last night taking pictures. I use a D7000 and had a 80-200 2.8D mounted. The field lighting was dim and I was having trouble hand shooting becuase of slower shuuter speeds. I cranked up the ISO but was a little pixelated. I noticed the news paper photographer with a D300s and a 300mm 2.8 on a monopod. He pulled out a SB600 and put it on. I thought no way is that going to work so, I pulled out my SB900 and put it on. When I got home and loaded the shots on my laptop I was shocked. I could not believe how well the SB900 worked. I had players across the field with red eyes from my flash almost 60-yards away. Everything was was lit and my pictures popped. THANK YOU NIKON. September 2, 2011
Great speedlight I own three SB900s. Use to have several SB600s but quickly sold them as they were very hard to program. If you can afford it the SB900 is the way to go. The programming is very intuitive and unlike the SB600 you don't need to have the manual with you. I typically get several hundred shots with a good set of NIMH recharable batteries. I know the big complaint about about the SB900 is thermal shutdown. For 99% of the people it is not an issue as they are NOT taking 20 pictures per minute over a 10 minute period. The solution is to get the external battery pack. If you are never going to use the Nikon Flash system probably the SB600 or even the SB400 will prove sufficient (they put out less light but in most cases not an issue) . But if you want a master and slave flash that is reliable and easy to program the SB900 is the way to go. July 29, 2011
Just wow.... Everything i could possibly hope for, 100% worth the extra $ July 21, 2011
Nice bells and whistles, not for heavy use. Overall, like what the flash has to offer in terms of features, menu. What kills me is the thermal shutdown, its not a work horse. The last two weddings with this flash and its wound up back in the bag "to cool off", being replaced by the old reliable SB-800. Pricey piece of equipment that spends more time in the bag. I've used my SB-800 for years, its never had an issue. When it does fail, not sure what it will be replaced by. Thought the SB-900 was it, but it falls short. May 2, 2011
THIS FLASH IS THE NEW LIGHT. The SB-900 HAS SO MANY FEATURES, THAT YOU CAN SHOOT ALMOST ANTHING. THE POWER, EASE OF THE CONTROL PANEL ALLOWS YOU TO FLOW WITH ANY CHANGING CONDITIONS. IF YOU ADD THE FAMILY ( 600 & 700 OR 800 ) YOU CAN LIGHT ANY SUBJECT DURING THE DAY OR NIGHT. IF YOU CAN IMAGINE IT, YOU CAN LIGHT IT. April 15, 2011
many uses A light tha can be used in many ways. I use expecially for macro, April 15, 2011
Great Flash! I have had this flash for just over 4 months now and i love it! The recycle time on it is very good and i have found i rarely use full power so it is pretty much always ready. I have used the off camera function a few times and i have found it works really good. I do a lot of sports photography such as Down hill mountain biking and Snowboarding so i am looking forward to trying some different things with the off camera function! great flash. A bit expensive at about $500 canadian but i think that it is worth it! I would defiantly recommend this to anyone! April 14, 2011
Simply Outstanding! I've used this product for weddings, for portraits as a master with two SB 600s as slaves, and for general shooting where a flash is relevant. An outstanding product...typical of Nikon/Nikkor gear; Dependable, Durable and spot on performance. April 14, 2011
The ultimate flash! Well worth the upgrade! LOVE the manual on/off switch. Battery life is superior. Plenty of power! The overheating sensor is too sensative on hot and humid days so I had to shut it off. A real workhorse! April 14, 2011
Great flash! I purchased this flash for its powerful and 360 degree turning head. The flash performs very well, often using it as my commander to trigger my other flashes. It is heavy for a flash, however it is expected to be when you consider its range, and power April 14, 2011
quick recycle, but... The good news is the -900 is much more efficient with battery power. Using the optional battery pack allows ~1 sec recycles. The menu is much more sensible, and, overall the flash is just easier to set-up and use than previous models. Also, the head now swivels in all directions, which is nice, as is the automatic identification of gels - that's actually quite nice. Now, The Bad News: When taking multiple shots the -900 too easily overheats, a real problem in hot temps whern shooting w/flash can come to a screetching halt. What makes this problem worse is, once the internal temp sensor trips, it takes too long to cool until you can resume firing. But, even then, you're likely to get only another handful of shots before going overtemp. Again. Before considering this flash, carefully consider your shooting style and requirements. You may be better off the SB-800, or the SB-700. For a serious photo shoot, that -900 overtemp thing is frustrating. March 26, 2011
Not a professional flash I have had my sb 900 for over a year and have put it through extensive use. I love the flash and the features. Unfortunately it is not for professional use. It overheats very easily and just stops working. Not a very dependable flash. I am sending it for repair for the second time and have decided to give the sb 700 a try. If it works like the 800 with the 900 features then I will be a happy camper. March 21, 2011
RPT good. The flash sb900 is an excellent flash, by far potential, and great quality of illumination, very powerful. March 18, 2011
Don't foget to turn it off! If you set the unit to remote and forget to turn it off it doesn’t automatically go to the standby mode like it does is in the on or master position. When I forgot to turn two units off after a shoot on a Friday the batteries to leak acid and destroyed the two SB900s over a single weekend. Unfortunately for me they are both just out of warranty. March 15, 2011
Very powerful flash I purchased this to use with a Nikon D700 camera and the combination is much more powerful than the Sony A700 / HVL56AM combo I had been using for years. The Sony flash was always overheating and burning through batteries so I was forced to get a battery pack to overcome the issue. It has been a pleasant surprise to have the Nikon SB-900 never overheat on me (despite heavy usage, although not rapid-fire) and the batteries can take FAR more shots per set of batteries than the Sony flash. I have not needed to use a battery pack with the SB-900 at all, which is a welcome change. This flash is also about twice as powerful as the Sony so I am having to learn how to dial it down some, but I am completely happy with this purchase and am looking forward to learning how to use its capabilities off-camera as well. March 13, 2011
Excellent This is my first speedlight so I have nothing else to compare it too, but I love it. I've been trying several techniques and feel like I'm getting the hang of it quick. Easy to use. I love the fact that I can adjust my output power right my camera. I'm shooting with d80 now. I hope to get either the d700 or maybe the d800 if it comes out soon by the end of the year. February 28, 2011
sb 900 you got to be kidding I am a professional photographer and own several sb800s and one sb 900. Sb 800 is great although I have fried a few. With the 800 at fashion shows I can get about 200 pictures every 10 minutes or so then I change the batteries and it works fine no overheating. Once I took 800 pics in a matter of 20 minutes on one set of batteries and ruined the flash. But I have ruined a sunpack 622 doing the same thing. The sb 900 is the worst ever. Today at an event we took 100 pics in about 45 minutes and it shut down. Changed the batteries and now it shuts down every 10 pics. This flash is not designed for the professional. Maybe fine to chase your kids around the house with but that about it. February 26, 2011
Excellent This is a awesome flash! sb-900. I also have a sb-600.no problems I would highly recommend this product.................................................. February 18, 2011
Paradox Overall it is a great flash. Powerful, easy controls, intuitive. The negative aspect of it is its ability to overheat and shut off. It is very annoying, disrupting and embarrassing! January 28, 2011

How do you prevent overheating with the SB900?

I recently got my SB900. During my first time practicing with it, it gave me the overheating warning and turned off. I had been taking multiple pictures in a short amount of time, as I was testing out different settings and lighting situations. However, I got the overheating warning within about 10 minutes of testing it out, and I was shocked to receive the message so early.

My question is, what measures can I take to prevent from overheating? I'm assuming I can't take multiple shots in mass succession. What IS the rate of pictures I can take? One every 30 seconds, one every minute, etc. Is there anything else I can do to prevent this from happening?

(other info - I was using this with the d90)

Answer: 
Increase the iso on your camera. the more you rely on a flash to fill the room, you are putting strain on it. Set the iso to a value you find acceptable and go from there. Also do not use FP sync. on my current camera i have found a happy medium between an acceptable iso value and firing at 1-16th full power and have found overheating issues to go away and i can fire in pretty rapid succession using plain duracell batteries. (another advantage is you will not find yourself fumbling to change batteries as often)

Answer: 
I have experienced the problem when shooting fire performers. where shooting time is limited to the time the flames are alight for. You don't have to use the flash for that long before it goes, a couple of minutes (and that is with the flash shooting at -1. A lot depends on the batteries you use, from what I have read. I have heard all sorts of different advise on reasons why and what batteries work better or worse. Turning down the power of your flash and using multiple flashes is the easiest way to stop it. Shooting slower, allowing the heat to dissipate will help but is limiting. I am not going to say which batteries you should use or if you should use a battery pack as I have heard so many things.

Answer: 
Some people report this issue, but I've never experienced it. Getting your speedlight to overheat after 10 minutes of use suggests you were pushing it pretty hard -- which means rapid-fire shooting at full power. You have some control over flash output, which includes shooting with a larger aperture (smaller number), slower shutter speed and higher ISO value. In this way you can mediate between camera and flash to produce required output from the SB-900. Even though the thermal warning feature can be turned off, I wouldn't recommend it -- for obvious reasons.

Answer: 
The most recent firmware update for the SB-900 Speedlight is version 5.02 which was released in November of 2008. The "Update" date reflects a change to the web page while the "Published" date is the date of the firmware itself.

If the firmware on your SB-900 is older than version 5.02 then you can use your D800 to do the update. Any DSLR that shows the "S" firmware option when a speedlight is attached can be used to do a Speedlight firmware update.

Firmware version 5.02 can be downloaded from this address:

Answer: 
You should be able to do it with the D800, just follow the instructions, I suspect the only reason the D800 is not showing is because the SB-900 has been discontinued and therefore the camera list will not be updated. Either that or find someone that uses one of the listed cameras and do it like that.

SB-900 would always overheat on my D40, specially during the worst of times, such as crucial moments (grooms kissing in a wedding, happy birthday in a birthday party...). Since I got my D7000 I NEVER had a single overheat on SB-900, and I´m taking the same types of shots. Is that due to D7000´s new metering processor being more efficient? Thanks in advance for clarifying it!

Answer: 
either that or you are using the d7k in a higher iso mode, since the d7k has eons better high iso than the d40. and higher iso->less need for light, so it's possible you're simply using your sb900 on a lower output.

Answer: 
They all overheat, the firmware update does not help. Different batteries does not help. The only things that helps is slowing down how fast you are shooting, turn up the ISO and shoot in brighter areas.......

Nikon staff, please admit to the problem and fix it. I have 10 of these sitting on the shelf at my studio not being used because we cannot not depend on them. If you can't or won't fix the problem, bring back the SB-800.....call it an SB-850 and charge $50 more than the cost of an SB-900 and I will buy 10 right away.

Answer: 
You can use the SB-900 off of the camera. There are a couple of ways of doing this. If you have a DSLR with Nikons creative lighting system build into the camera you can use the built in flash (not with the D5100) to activate the flash. You can use SC28/SC29 attached to the camera to activate the flash. Or you can use another SB800/SB900 as a master or a wireless flash trigger with varying degrees of control.

i just got my new sb900 from a retail store. jammed it with a set of fresh batteries, everything seems to work fine, but when i tried pushing the test button, it doesn't fire. even when the test button lights up, still not firing. i tried it with the D90, still not firing. i tried putting it on wireless triggers, not firing. is it a product defect?
