Nikon's flagship Speedlight for enthusiasts and professionals.

Engineered for FX and DX-format D-SLRs and COOLPIX P7000 Series cameras, the SB-910 offers unparalleled lighting performance in the field and in the studio. Featuring Nikon's versatile i-TTL (intelligent through-the-lens) metering for on camera or wireless flash control, the SB-910 can operate as a hot shoe mounted Speedlight, remote unit or wireless Commander. And with refined operability including illuminated buttons for use in low light and improved thermal cut out protection, the SB-910 is the perfect partner to your D-SLR.

Unparalleled lighting performance

Seamless integration with Nikon's Creative Lighting System

The SB-910 Speedlight operates as a hot shoe mounted Speedlight, remote unit or wireless Commander (with up to four channel options) capable of controlling as many as three remote groups (A,B and C) and an unlimited number of SB-910, SB-900, SB-700 or SB-R200 units. With a host of pro flash features including; precision i-TTL flash control, Manual with Power Ratio, three illumination patterns for specific shooting environments, wide zoom range from 17-200mm, and streamlined controls and menus—it's no wonder that Nikon is the overwhelming choice when it comes to flash photography.

On the road or in the studio, the perfect partner

Real world simplicity with advanced automation

At the heart of the SB-910 is Nikon's i-TTL flash control which enables Nikon Speedlights to share critical exposure information with CLS compatible D-SLRs. All of the complex lighting calculations are computed for you instantly with consistently accurate results in just about any lighting situation. Using the SB-910 as a Commander or the in concert with the SU-800 Commander or D-SLR with built-in Commander operating as the Master controller, you can wirelessly manage and fire up to three groups of remotely positioned SB-910, SB-900, SB-700 and SB-R200 Speedlights. Additionally, each group can contain any number of Speedlights and any mix of these Speedlights. SB-910 can also be set as a Remote Speedlight for complete system integration and control.

Improved control and convenience

Versatile flash for enthusiasts and professionals

SB-910 offers an improved interface, adding a dedicated Menu button and illuminated buttons for control in low light. Additionally, hard type color correction filters are now used, providing durability and convenience when used with a camera set for Auto white balance. And when taking pictures in certain situations such as in rapid sequence, to prevent the flash tube from overheating, an improved thermal cut out protection has been adopted that slows recycling instead of cutting off the flash.

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR I have the SB 910 for just one day. Right out of the box, I am very satisfied. As I have said previously, when you work with a system, there is no reason to go outside the box and purchase an inferior product. Just the feel upon opening the box you have your answer. There are many compatible products on the shelf that are quite a bit lower in price, but you get what you pay for when purchasing a Nikon product. Quality build and works exactly the way it was designed. I will now be using this along with two SB 600 and a SU 800 I previously have been working with. I primarily shoot with a D7100, MBD15 battery grip and a 17X55 mm F2.8. Original manufactured products are the only way to go..Just add your creativity and you will be very satisfied. December 8, 2014
excellent speedlight, nikons, best!!!! I"ve owned various nikon speedlights, through the years, the 910 in my opinion, incorporates all of what was missing in previous versions, such as the 900, bravo, Nikon for making such a fine speelight, as the 910 March 30, 2014
Great update to a great accessory The Nikon SB-910 has many improvements over my previous Nikon SB-800 Flash. Somewhat intuitive, lightweight and sturdy. I am very pleased with the performance and do not regret upgrading to the SB-910. December 7, 2013
So awesome! I love being able to use this flash off camera for all my needs! Someday I want to buy multiple but for now just one works great! November 27, 2013
A Very Versitile Flash I purchased the SB-910 several months ago. Yes the price tag is a bit high however the SB-910 is made in Japan accounting for some of the higher price than say the SB700. Overall it is and extremely good versatile flash, definitely pro level. The SB-910 is slightly larger in size than the SB-700 and the old SB-800. The Graphic User interface is excellent. It is very easy to switch modes and features. The dedicated function buttons (which change functions when a different mode is used), adds to the versatility of the flash. The flash has modeling flash capability via the menu options. I also like the fact that as a pro level flash one has the option to select between iTTL and TTL flash modes, not an option on the SB700. Some of the modes of the flash are: flash value lock, repeating, manual, auto aperture and advanced wireless flash, The flash in Commander Mode can control 3 other flashes. The flash comes with a flash stand, fluorescent filter and an incandescent filter. The flash also comes with a diffuser dome, not to mention the built in diffuser panel. If you use a flash in your photography often whether pro or serious amateur often the SB-910 is flash is worth serious consideration. November 3, 2013

hi there,

this is my first speed light, other than place it on top of my camera, turn it on, switch between shooting modes and shooting, I don't know how to use it.
Did not find the manual very helpful, and could not find any tutorial on how to use it/demo.
Can you please point me to where I could find some tutorials about this flash (nikon sb-910)
Thanks,

Answer: 
I bought a book "The Nikon Creative Lighting System" by Mike Hagen, 2nd Edition, Publisher is rockynook. It helped a lot, but had to use it in conjunction with the Troubleshooting in the manual. This is my first flash also, and it is challenging, finding dumb things like I have to turn on the camera, and position the direction to see the flash output....

I am going learn it! Have fun!

Let's say I have three SB-700, and I wanted all the three SB-700 to each have a different output, can that be done?

I also assume that even it the flash is mounted on the SC-28 and 29, it still can control all the 3 groups off camera?

Regards,
Zane

Answer: 
Sure, as long as the SB910 is in master mode and connected to the camera either on the hotshot or by the SC28 or SC29 it can handle 3 zones of flashes each one at different outputs. You can even mix iTTL with Manual flash on different channels.

Answer: 
Using an external AC power supply for the SB-910 is actually a great idea; it decreases the 'recycling' time for the flash to be ready to be used again; just keep in mind that even if you use an external AC power supply, batteries still must be inside the flash, so consider purchasing 'rechargeable batteries'; and in the SB-910 manual says: "Do not use Power Cord SC-16 when connecting the SB-910 to the Nikon DC Unit SD-7; use the SC-16A instead". There are also battery packs which can be used externally, but I believe your question is about using AC power.

Yes, it is built in the top part of the flash's head, and there's also a 'built-in wide panel'; this feature allows you to use only one or both at the same time; depending on your light needs.

Answer: 
Yes it will work if mounted on the camera, however, if you are wanting to use the flash off camera then you will either have to use it in SU-4 mode or get something else like the SU-800 to control it as the D3200 has no built in commander to control flashes.

Answer: 
You can use the SB-910 off camera, however, the D5100 has no inbuilt cls commander so the flash would have to be in SU-4 mode and so it would have to be adjusted manually. The only way you could use cls off camera would be to either buy another flash or the SU-800 commander. There are third party wireless triggers available but again these are not cls compatible and so, like SU-4 mode, would mean adjusting the flash power manually.

Answer: 
The i-TTL balanced fill-flash mode (iTTL-BL) adjusts the flash output to achieve well-balanced exposure of the main subject and background. To use this mode on an SB-910 your D7100 must be set to Matrix or Center-Weighted metering. You can then adjust the flash output by changing the flash compensation via the camera or via the controls on the flash. Note that if you alter the flash compensation on both the camera and the flash then the output is modified by the total of both values.

You can find information on adjusting Flash Compensation via the camera on page 124 of the D7100 manual. The D7100 manual can be downloaded from this address:
https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

Information on adjusting Flash Compensation via the flash can be found on page E-17 of the SB-910 manual. The SB-910 manual can be downloaded from this address:
https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...
