Last week my trusty old Nikon SB-600 stopped working on me. Thankfully I was just messing around the house and it didn't do out when I needed it. That's why it's always a good idea to have a backup for these types of things. I took my old Speedlight back to Bedfords Camera, I had it so long that it was not covered under the warranty anymore, but they packed it up and sent it off to Nikon for repair. It looks like it will get fixed, but it may be a few weeks. So today I went back to Bedfords and picked up the new SB-900. This is a beast of a flash. I would say it is about 3 times the size of the 600. It can really throw some light, but with the control of a highly electronic and sophisticated strobe. I have not had it very long, so I'll have to give you more information after I get to use it a bit. I got a bit of a deal on it because Bedfords didn't have the case for it. So I figured that wasn't that big of a deal because I will keep it in my photo bag anyway. I will have to make another trip back to Bedfords though, they only gave me the Spanish user's manual. It might be a good time to start learning Spanish. Haha. Enjoy the Unboxing.
Oh yeah, the last shot is just my kitchen knives, I thought I would give you guys a test shot of the new SB-900.
