Nikon SB-910 Speedlight Unit
About this deal
This means that you'll never have to worry about using the diffuser, even with the 16-35mm zoom on FX. I am not sure it’s MK-910 can not catch wireless lighting very well or just it gets stuck sometimes. Overheating greatly affects the nerves of the photographer and the subjects - in my opinion, this the biggest flaw SB-910. What I don't like about the case is a common problem I find with all of Nikon's products: they just don't consider how we really use and carry these things.
If you need to recycle even faster, try the optional SD-9, which will get you right down to the one second cycle range. Featuring Nikon's versatile i-TTL (intelligent through-the-lens) metering for on camera or wireless flash control, the SB-910 can operate as a hot shoe mounted Speedlight, remote unit or wireless Commander. In terms of size, the SB-900 is the largest flash Nikon has produced (the photos above are to scale--they were shot with the units side by side in a single picture, then my blue screen background was removed). So, quit listening to those folks on the internet who say “if you put a gun to my head, I’d pick one of these two options. To control the SB 5000 wirelessly in RF mode, you need a WR10 RF transmitter attached to your compatible camera and paired with the flash, then enter your camera's menu to adjust the flash output in the appropriate groups, the good news is all the current cameras that support this are now touch screen to some extent.
In the OP’s second post, it sounds like he was merely speculating and at that time had not yet actually tried that combo. The Sony a9 III is the world's first full-frame mirrorless camera to feature a global electronic shutter with simultaneous readout. Impressive about the SB-910 are its prodigious power output and super-fast recycling: 2 seconds at full power as actually measured with Sanyo eneloop cells taken right out of the package as delivered (not charged by me). I had to upgrade the firmware on my transmitters and the flashes, but the performance doesn't seem accurate.
Faster recycling, better swivel, dedicated gel holder that impacts white balance correctly, the list of little things that were added or improved is quite long. The simple coding on the gels allows the newer cameras (D3 and D700 at this point) to make white balance adjustments that are correct for the new color of the flash.
However, a growing trend at events and wedding receptions is to set up a 'photo booth' (and optional dressing up box) with fixed lighting, where guests can come to be photographed to commemorate the event.
