Nikon SB-400 AF Speedlight Flash for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras – Review:
GREAT IMPROVEMENT OVER BUILT-IN FLASH
I was looking for a more useful flash than the one built into my Nikon d5100. I didn’t need anything too intense, just something that could bounce off a ceiling and had a quick recharge without reducing the battery life of my camera.
I was considering one of the more expensive Nikon flash’s but aside from costing 2-3x, they were also much larger and more intimidating to have on a camera walking around.
This flash is small enough to fit in my camera bag and always have on hand and does a wonderful job of providing some fill light. It is a must if youre doing macro photography or portraits if the lighting isn’t 100% perfect. Coupled with the Stofen OM400 Omnibounce Flash Bouncer for Nikon SB400, you have a great little system that travels very easily.
