        Comments about Nikon SB 700 Black AF Speedlight Flash:

        I had considered bdtween sb700 and sb900. A lot of my friends in wedding photography industry recommended me to get SB900 but after all researching two products, I decided to get SB700. What's better? 200+@ cheaper, lighter(2/3 of sb900), very slightly faster recharge after full power flash. Just only onething you need to concern is the flash doesn't have sync code so you need to spend another 10-15$ (I bought Metz) to connect to transmitter. (Don't worry. If you are just going to put SB700 on your camera, ignore the last sentence)

          If you don't need the extra distance, then this is the Nikon Speedlight to pick. More advanced than the SB-900 and less expensive than the SB-910.

            Comments about Nikon SB 700 Black AF Speedlight Flash:

            I got this unit a few weeks ago for my Nikon D5000. I owned many digital cameras before this one and never used the optional flash. Before I purchased this unit I talked with some of my friends who have been experiencing with this unit and all of them recommended if I wanted the photos to look better I should get this one for my D5000. It took me several weeks to think about this because of the price and I wondered if the SB-700 would make a significant improvement of the quality of the image. After I got this unit I used it to take the photos both indoor and outdoor. Wow, it is beyond word for me to tell how much difference between the image in the photo that was taken with the D5000 using the built-in flash and the photo taken with the same camera using the SB-700. With the batteries, this unit weighs about a pound so together with the D5000 the whole thing weighs more than 5 pounds. However, I usually used the tripod and therefore I am more pleased with the quality of the images than the heaviness.

            This is the second SB700 we've bought, and it's such a great product- much better than the SB600, which was it's predecessor.
