Nikon SB-910 Speedlight
Nikon’s range-topping pro-spec flashgun
Nikon’s top-flight flashgun (until the new SB-5000 launches), the SB-910 includes all of the SB-700’s features, like its three illumination patterns (standard, even and centre-weighted), and a visual indicator on the LCD screen for flash tube temperature. It also comes with the same extras, including a diffusion dome and colour filters, and like the SB-700 it can detect when they’re attached to the flashgun.
Pro-grade additions include a sync terminal and power input socket for an optional external battery pack, greater output power and a programmable repeat mode. The motorised zoom has a range of 24mm to 200mm. The SB-910 is larger and heavier than the SB-700 but the standard of build quality feels very similar. The control panel uses a set of context-sensitive buttons for intuitive adjustments of modes, including easy switching between TTL and TTL-BL modes.
The tested maximum output power of the SB-910 was only slightly higher than from the SB-700 and TTL accuracy wasn’t as accurate. Recycling speed was slightly slower. The extra features are nice to have.
