Choo se your Mas­ter

The ‘mas­ter’ can be the cam­era or a flash

NPhoto - - Nikopedia -

Op­tion 1: Midrange Nikons

Nikon’s mid-range mod­els are ac­tu­ally the most ver­sa­tile for flash pho­tog­ra­phy be­cause their built-in flash­guns have a ‘Com­man­der’ mode which can fire other Speed­lights re­motely. En­try-level Nikons don’t have this, and the pro mod­els have no flash. The built-in flash can ei­ther be used as part of the light­ing setup or purely as a con­troller for the other flash units. Th­ese in­clude the Nikon D90, D300s,

D7000, D7100, D600, D610, D800 and the D810.

Op­tion 2: En­trylevel Nikons

Th­ese in­clude the Nikon D3100, D3200, D3300,

D5100, D5200 and Nikon D5300. The flash has no Com­man­der mode, so you’ll need to at­tach a Speed­light (be­low).

Nikon Speed­light SU -800

(This is an in­frared con­troller (mas­ter) for ex­ter­nal Speed­lights which at­taches to your cam­era’s ac­ces­sory shoe. It con­trols Speed­lights re­motely but does not in­cor­po­rate a flash it­self.

Op­tion 3: Pro­level Nikons

The Nikon D3s, D3x,

D4, D4s and Nikon Df don’t have an in-built flash, so as with the en­try-level mod­els you’ll need to use an ex­ter­nal Speed­light.

Nikon Speed­light SB-700 and SB-910

Both of th­ese Speed­lights can be used as con­trollers to fire other SB-700s or SB-910s re­motely. You can use them ei­ther as part of the light­ing setup or just as con­trollers.
