Buy Nikon Flash !!LINK!!
Yongnuo flashes are the best 3rd party flashes for both Canon and Nikon system. Yongnuo offers the whole range of speedlites for Nikon DSLRs. Some of them are pretty similar to Nikon models like Yongnuo YN565EX and YN568EX being a replacements for Nikon SB700 and SB900/SB910, while others are totally new models Like Yongnuo YN560 IV and Yongnuo YN660, which are the Yongnuo flashes with built-in very popular RF-603 wireless triggering system.

Youngnuo flashes are extremely popular worldwide since being 3-5 times cheaper than equivalent Nikon flash and offering pretty similar performance. For the photographer it is usually better to have more light sources to achieve creative effects, so our choice is always more Yongnuo flashes instead of one Nikon flash for the same price.
Nikon claims that the Z cameras are all CLS (Creative Lighting System) compatible. CLS is also known as i-TTL, and was Nikon's second attempt at a "digital compatible" flash system. While what Nikon suggests about compatibility is basically true, some wrinkles are present that you need to know about. Before I get to those, I'll point to Nikon's "current" CLS Speedlight flashes:
At present, my suggestion for Z camera owners is that they pay closest attention to the SB-500 and SB-5000, as those are two most versatile units that are fully supported by the in-camera menu system on Z-mount cameras. I'm on record as saying that most Z System camera owners should at least have an SB-500 in their kit. If you're going to dabble with a Speedlight, the SB-500 is what I'd steer you towards. You can always use it as an optical wireless remote if you then later step up to a bigger flash on camera.
If you stick a CLS flash in the hot shoe of a Z camera, it'll work. You may have to make the settings on the flash and not with the camera menus/controls, but it'll work. With a caveat: the Autofocus Assist Lamp in all the Speedlights does not work with the Z cameras. That's because it uses low visibility red patterns to throw on subjects, and the Z system autofocus sensors are sensitive to blue light, not red. This is one reason why I've asked "where's the Z System Flash?" Lack of flash focus assist is a primary drawback to event shooting with the Z6 and Z7, for instance, as you can't get flash assist for focus in really low light.
About third-party flash: here we have the same situation as with lenses. Nikon has been a proprietary shop that doesn't license its mounts or communications to others. The hot shoe on a Nikon has five pins (only two are needed to trigger a flash and are defined by a standard), and features a very complex signal process between flash and camera. Third parties have to reverse engineer what Nikon is doing, and they don't always get that 100% right. Nikon themselves have stumbled over this a few times as they made small and subtle changes to the signaling levels and what they mean.
I remember when I purchased my first DSLR, I expected it to be a world better than my old point and shoot that I used for years. It certainly was much better when taking pictures on a sunny day outside, but not that great for taking pictures indoors with flash. To my disappointment, the images from my DSLR looked almost as flat as images from my point and shoot camera and I could not figure out if it was me doing something wrong or the camera that had limitations for taking pictures indoors. Next, I read about low-light photography and using on-camera pop-up flash and while my images did get a little better overtime, they still looked flat due to the harsh direct light. The shadows on my subjects looked even worse.
Oh and what about that slave mode and off-camera flash? Wondering what it is and why you might possibly need it? Let me give you a couple of examples. Here is a shot of Lola that was taken with an external flash mounted on top of the camera:
Three other flashes that did not make it to the list, because they are now discontinued, are the Nikon SB-800, SB-900, and SB-910. If you can find them new in a local camera store or get them used, these are superb flashes that can do almost everything SB-5000 can.
with due respect sir i am a beginner. and i have a Nikon D3200 camera with 18-55mm lens. I have purchased Digitek 003 manual flash. After used i found that the images are very lighted. but I used attached flash images are very good in low light condition. so, My question is additional flash required or not. if yes please give me the flash details. thanking you Sir
Nikon SB-600 speedlight. After frequent frustration with the overly complex and confusing buttons and menu, tiny buttons (best if you have infant size fingers) and a horrible user manual of the SB-600, I am getting rid of it. I do not use it much in part because of the horrible button combinations; so by the time I re-learn a sequence, while reading the manual, the shot is gone. This is a flash designed by geeks for geeks. I use a D700, so any recommendations for a compatible (including CLS), better and simpler Nikon speedlight will be gratefully accepted.
The new Nissin MG60 professional compact flash for Nikon cameras is now in stock at: Adorama B&H Photo (special order) Calumet DE Foto Koch WEX UK Last year Nikon announced collaborations with Nissin and Profoto:
After a delay, the new Nissin MG60 flash for Nikon cameras will be released on January 18th, 2022. The estimated retail price in Japan will be 51,700 including tax (around $400-$500). Here are the technical specifications:
Unlike other flashes, the SB-700 is only designed for current, not older cameras. Nikon calls these the cameras compatible with Nikon's Creative Lighting System (CLS). These cameras are all DSLRs except the D1 series and the D100. The F6 is also CLS compatible and works with the SB-700. With any other 35mm camera, you won't get much to work with the SB-700.
Coverage. Flash coverage was very narrow at wide angle (18mm), with very dark corners and edges. Coverage at telephoto is much more even, as expected. (Apologies for the dark images, they were shot at ISO 100 instead of the usual ISO 200, however they are still useful for assessing flash coverage.)
Exposure. When it came to exposure, the D3400's built-in flash underexposed our Indoor Portrait subject at its default setting, requiring +0.7 EV flash exposure compensation, which is about average for this shot. Color balance is a little warm, but otherwise the flash performed surprisingly well here given how weak the flash it, and the camera used a reasonably fast 1/60s shutter speed which should help avoid subject motion blur for most portraits.
Manufacturer Specified Flash Range. The Nikon D3400's flash is rated with a Guide Number of only 7/23 (m/ft) at ISO 100. That works out to about 6.6 feet at f/3.5 and 4.1 feet at f/5.6, the maximum apertures of the kit lens at wide and telephoto. As you can see in the flash range test shots above taken with those parameters, the Nikon D3400 produced dim images, indicating the flash output rating is somewhat optimistic.
I have a Canon 60D camera and a SB-600 flash for Nikon. Can I use this flash wirelessly with my camera? I had Nikon camera before which I replaced with Canon and I haven't purchased a flash yet, so this is my only option so far. It would be cool if it worked. I don't care for automatic features (like TTL, etc), I can use the flash in full manual mode, I just need the camera to fire it when taking the photo.
Yes, you can use it as an on-camera flash, but first hide all contacts of hotshoe with cello tape except the centre point. Then you can use any Nikon flash on Canon system in auto and manual mode. Be careful not to use the Auto ISO feature of camera. Set ISO and f stop on flash and camera first, and switch off auto standby option in some flashes like sb600, 800, 900, 910 and enjoy shooting as do I. No problems.
If you are in the market to purchase a flash I would seriously recommend the SB-700. Its compact size, enhanced interface, and ruggedness make it a great flash for its price. Read on to get more details on this great new addition to the Nikon flash line.
The Nikon SB-700 performs as you would expect a Nikon brand flash to. All I can say is that it just works. As long as I have a good set of batteries in the flash I have never had my Nikon flashes not fire. Having owned the SB-900 I can say that the only big difference you are missing is having more flash power. But at about $330 you can buy two flashes for a lot cheaper than buying two SB-900 flashes. That is the main reason I purchased the SB-700 flashes over the SB-900. I shoot portraits and having a main light and fill light make portraits look nicer when used properly as opposed to having one light source.
I use the SB-700 primarily for portraits and the flash fills all the needs that I have which are: reliability, recycle time, flash power, and ease of use. I thought that the SB-700 might not have enough power to get the results that I was looking for, but as you can see in the picture above I was able to get enough light from the SB-700 to get the shadows I was looking for on the concrete wall.
In order to keep my lighting budget low I use my SB-700 flashes with 2 Manfrotto light stands, and 2 Creative Light white umbrellas. When I want softer light I use the umbrellas, but when I need harsh light I use the bare flash.
If you are in the market for a Nikon flash then you have two real options, the SB-700 or the SB-900. Given those two choices I feel that the SB-700 is the best value. It has nearly all of the features of the SB-900, but is smaller than the gigantic SB-900. I would recommend that anyone looking to buy a flash seriously consider the SB-700.
