Nikon SB 80DX User Reviews
awesome flash for new and old cameras
“This flash has more features than most people will use. It is one of Nikon’s top end flashes, and as such is very powerful and versatile. I have used it as a camera-mounted and remote for film and digital. One of the best features I’ve liked is the flash-fired remote capabilities. If you have a camera with a weak flash, you can add this to fill the foreground, background, or anywhere in between. Of course the flash really shines in a complex professional setup linked to high-end cameras, but you can also fire it from the flash on your camera, regardless of price or brand. This flash works fine with digital and film SLRs. It’s a Nikon, so you know it will perform for many years.” – By John
“Fantastic flash- very versitile. The various auto and TTL modes are much cleverer than I. Works supurbly with my D100. The only complaint I have is that you may need to sell a car to buy one. Otherwise this product is a 5.” – By THOMAS WINDISCH
