Nikon SB-600 --- Excellent Flash for D80

Strengths: Ease of use -- works great just letting it work on "auto" with the camera or you can set features. Great addition to photo quality and bounce ability is a plus.

Weakness: It is a little big on the camera - but easy to get used to. I have no real complaints.

I am very pleased with the pictures I have taken with this so far -- the bounce and angles I get with it have given me more photo oportunities than with the built-in flash. I looked at the SB-800 verses the Sb-600 and the differences were not worth the money unless you are a professional photographer. I would recommend this flash to the casual photographer or the pro -- it is just that good!

A nice-to-have for all serious flash photographer

Strengths: Powerful and flexible. It has almost all the feature that most users would need. I also get addicted to its built-in wireless functionality.

Weakness: Does not come with color filters or other external diffusers.

I am using this SB-600 with my Nikon D300. Its built-in wireless sync function gives me the power to shoot my subject with multiple flashes without purchasing additional equipment. This makes my flash photography experience a lot more fun. Moreover, I find the SB-600 full speed auto-sync very useful when I want to use a high shutter speed with large aperture. This is a nice-to-have for any...

NOT a Non-Dedicated Automatic Flash

Strengths: Probably a good dedicated flash but doesn't seem to have a non-dedicated automatic mode. May be misplaced in this category.

Weakness: After looking at the specs for this flash, I believe DOES NOT have non-dedicated automatic flash modes. It can be used on manual as most dedicated flashes can be.

I teach photography classes and require my students to use flashes with non-dedicated automatic settings. This gives the student more control over the flash when using a camera in a manual exposure mode. I would NOT let my students use this flash. Dedicated flashes communicate with specific cameras when the camera is in an automatic exposure mode. They don't allow photographers to choose a...

Nikon SB-600

Strengths: Nice compact flash that works seamlessly with Nikon cameras.

Weakness: Build quality may be questionable.

I will start that I love this flash. It performs well and has plenty of power for the non-pro user. If you have a nikon camera; stay with a nikon flash to take advantage of the compatability. The only downside to this flash is maybe the build quality. I had to return two units before I got one that worked properly. One didn't flash at all and other had a broken on/off switch. Maybe just bad luck?...

Very good flash

Strengths: quality, wireless operation, zoom, automatic operation

Weakness: size, weight

This is a very good flash that works quite a bit better than the small flash on my D70. Everything works automatically with it without any problems, including wireless operation. The biggest problem is that its a bit too big in my opinion, but its still portable. It has definitely improved the quality of my pictures.
