Nikon

Works Great

I have no idea how to use this thing so I just leave it on the auto settings and it works great. My favorite use is tilting it up and bouncing the light of the ceiling onto my subject to create well-lit photos indoors. They turn out amazing!

Best Uses

Easy to use under most circumstances

I bought this flash unit to go beyond the capability of the fixed popup flash on my Nikon DSLR. The field I do a lot of work in might best be described as editorial photography where Im shooting people at work and Ive pretty much used it set and forget with the camera on P (Program) and the flash on either TTL (dark or night) or BL (fill flash) and got generally good results. Where I am harsh sunlight is a problem with outdoor photography and the fill flash works wonders. Indoors bounce flash gets much subtler lighting than direct flash and this unit is quick to adjust the flash head so you can bracket shots at slightly different bounce angles and choose the best shot later. The lever action slide lock also makes it fast and easy to get on and off the camera. Ive always used rechargeable batteries in it and recycle time and power consumption has never been a problem. It could be a little more powerful but no way I can really complain about it. Generally speaking its been a super little unit for the price and what I as a semi-pro want.

Best Uses

New to the flash other than the pop up

I bought the SB 600 because my nephew was getting married and I was asked to take pictures of the ceremony and reception. The pop-up flash on my Nikon was not able to do the job I needed and the SB 600 did the job great. I had some pics were there were shadows behind the couple but I might have had the flash pointed toward them instead of up other than that the photos were great The couple was happy with the photos and I was really happy that I got this flash instead of the 900 the 600 did everything I needed it to and more! No problems with it over heating or being slow.

Great For What Is Worth

The Flash is great for photo enthusiasts who do not want to pay $350-500 dollars for the bigger and more powerful sb-800 and sb-900.The flash is consistent which i love. I use it a lot as a slave for doing portraits. With that being said there are couple thing you could say are cons to this flash. for one it doesnt have a PC sync jack. So if you want to it trip with a radio popper trigger or whatever kinda trigger u use u have to buy a hot shoe with a pc sync jack.Also the power on this tiny flash is not that powerful. When using a softbox with this softboxes usually steps down the output by 1 stop this really put a lot on the flash coz you have to up the power out more. Which will make recycling time long than just using 1/2 or 1/4 power.If you wanna use a external battery pack for this guy your out of luck. This doesnt have a jack for that too.Even with all those Cons Overall though im still very happy with this flash. I just brought extra thigns to make it work like the hot shoe with pc sync cord – $4 bucks recharchable battery and some triggers.
