Nikon SB-910 Review.

The Nikon SB-910 is a very good flash, I have used mine for three years and it has been a lifesaver, I have a lot of Speedlights from Nikon – Neewer – Yongnuo – Meike and Godox studio strobes and the Nikon SB-910 is the absolute the best light that I have at the moments.
The menu system in the Nikon SB-910 can be a little bit intimidating at the first time but soon after first use, you start to learn how to use the flash.
I use this flash both on and off the camera, more off the camera though but I don’t hesitate to use the flash on the camera when I need to.
The i-TTL function on the Nikon SB-910 is much better on this flash than on other third party flashes.
The only time that I had a problem using this Nikon SB-910 was when I was using normal AA batteries in the beginning this flash needs powerful batteries, the recycle time reduced from 10 sec to 1-2 sec when used in full power.
