Nikon SB-23 AF TTL Speedlight Expert Reviews
Kenrockwell reviews the Nikon SB-23 AF TTL Speedlight and writes;
“The SB-23 works great even on-camera with the 105 macro really close. You could buy the SC-17 cord to put it right up at the subject, too. I find the one switch of the SB-23 much more straightforward then the confusingly complex controls of the SB-28. I can turn the SB-23 on and off much faster than having to hold down the rubber buttons of the SB-28.”
Nikon SB-23 AF TTL Speedlight User Reviews
“I purchased one of the last Nikon FM=3a made. Everyone’s gone digital, it seems, but I love to shoot in extreme conditions, usually when it is well below zero. I do have several digital cameras, but I worry about the ability to perform in very cold climes. The basic, non-auto focus film camera is a good choice here. If the bare-bones electronics fail, you can still shoot by using an external light meter, or by bracketing your shot (stopping up and down from what you think the best exposure should be).” – By Scott FS
