Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash

1 Answer

Sb-800 Nikon Hello, I shoot weddings and events and I have an sb-800 that I dropped and the built in Accessories broke. The flash is working but it seems to loose power a bit faster than my other unit. I can shoot for several hours with my other unit but the one I droped will only last about 30 min. before the images start being under exposed. Can it be fixed or do I need to replace it. On my other one, the locking arm that you use to lock the unit onto the hot shoe is going past the point that it should and will not stay locked. It has almost fallen off my camera twice. Any suggestions would be great.

Are the sb-900 and the sb-800 heads the same? I have a sb-800 and I want to buy teh coco ring flash with the sb-900 adapter, are both the same, will it fit the sb-800?


No it is not the same. the SB 900 is 25% bigger.
I just got a Coco ring for my SB 800 (I bougth the one for the SB 900) and it is big. But I just filled the empty space with hard foam and works wonders. I can post a photo if you want.
By the way I have a D 700. It migth fit different in other cameras.

Are you shooting those 20 pictures in rapid succession? If so the flash is saving itself by shutting down. If that is not the case, check your batteries with a battery charger to see if one may be weak causing a strain on the others. Call Nikon 1-800-645-6689

My sb 600 fires with the camera but it seems not illuminate


Definately a settings problem. The camera will only syncronize on one specific speed. Youe best bet is to use auto. For manual, you'll have to set the shutter speed at the sync speed.

Flash Sync Speed
  • up to 1/250 X-Sync Speed
  • up to 1/8000 FP High Speed Sync
  • Red-eye reduction
    Red-eye reduction with slow sync
    Rear-curtain sync
    Slow sync
    Front-curtain sync (normal) Flash Sync Modes
  • 1) i-TTL: TTL flash control by 1,005-pixel RGB sensor, built-in flash, SB-800, SB-600, SB-400: i-TTL balanced fill-flash and standard i-TTL flash
    2) AA (Auto Aperture-type) flash: Available with SB-800 used with CPU lens
    3) Non-TTL Auto: Available with Speedlights such as SB-800, 28, 27, and 22S
    4) Range-priority manual flash; available with SB-800 Flash Control

    Sb 800 and sb900 overexposing


    It might be you are not making a good contact on your camera and flash .

    Are you using a cord to get the flash off the camera . If so the cord could be intermittent .
