The Nikon Speedlight SB-900 will be out this Friday and the retail price is HK$3,980.

Nikon Speedlight SB-900 Major Features

  • Multi-step auto zoom covers wide 17-200mm zoom range (24-105mm:SB-800)
  • Three illumination patterns (standard, center-weighted and even) are available to match each shooting environment
  • Automatically detects Nikon FX and Nikon DX formats and selects suitable light distribution
  • Improved booster circuit for high-speed recycle time: Recycle time using four AA-size batteries is almost equal to the SB-800 with five AA-size batteries
  • New AF-Assist illumination covers a wide 20-105 mm focal range compatible with the new Multi-CAM3500 FX/DX AF sensor
  • Firmware update via Nikon D3 and D700 is possible (world’s first*)
  • Thermal Cut-out function limits the number of flashes to avoid deterioration of light emitting parts caused by continuous flash firing
  • Automatically detects color filters (fluorescent or incandescent), enabling camera to control color temperature according to filter information from SB-900
  • Improved switch panel for enhanced usability
  • Improved GUI using a large-size LCD dot panel
  • Bounce capability: tilts up to 90º, down to -7º, rotates horizontally 180º to right and left
  • Advanced Wireless Lighting and versatile functions for up to three remote groups of  SB-900s or other compatible Speedlight controlled through the master SB-900
  • Optional Water Guard WG-AS1 (for D3), WG-AS2 (for D300), and WG-AS3 (for D700) is useful for protecting the camera’s hot shoe contact when the SB-900 is mounted on these Nikon digital SLR cameras

新閃燈在外型上比上代 SB-800 明顯大了一碼,雖然較大較重,不過燈頭較大的發光面積卻是有助改善光質,令直射時光線也不至過硬。除了全出時 2.3 秒的超高速回電,閃燈的燈頭亦支援極廣闊的 17-200mm 變焦。此外 SB-900 亦增加了三種不同的閃光模式,分別有標準、中央重點以及平均,以應付不同的拍攝環境。

從細微的地方,大家不難可看出廠方的細心。例如 SB-900 新增的自動偵測彩色濾色片、過熱保護功能等,至於支援的 Firmware 更新,更可在日後加強功能,設計相當貼心。

Nikon Speedlight SB-900 預計將於 7 月25 日推出,定價為 HK$ 3,980。
