Nikon has announced its new flagship speedlight today, the Nikon SB-910. The flash output and specs haven’t changed much from its predecessor, the SB-900, with the biggest updates coming in the form of increased durability and an improved user-interface.
The SB-910 features a brand-new operating system, dedicated menu key and graphic user interface (similar to that found on the SB-700 model).
Nikon says the SB-910 is more efficient in battery usage as well as an “enhanced Thermal Cut-Out function,” ensuring it won't overheat with prolonged use. If it does detect a risk of overheating, while in continuous flash mode, it will automatically delay the recycle time, instead of completely cutting the power, as previous models did.
With new heat-resistant hard-plastic filters for use under fluorescent or incandescent lighting, the SB-910 will automatically will adjust the camera’s white balance accordingly.
Just like the SB-900, the 910 offers the same zoom-coverage range of 17-200mm, as well as three different illumination patterns including standard, center-weighted and even. Also, as would be expected, the SB-910 can function both on camera and off as a commander or remote unit.
The SB-910 costs US$550.
Bound to be nice, if you can afford it
