Updating firmware on nikon sb 900 candy twist dating site
Announced with the D700, the SB-900 didn't get as much mention or notice as the new camera, but as far as I'm concerned, it's the more significant announcement.No, I'm not dissing the D700, which is a fine camera, but the D700 doesn't break new ground while the SB-900 does.Things seem to be happening all at once for Nikon at the moment, with several announcements, and one rumour.First up, for those that have been lucky enough to receive their Nikon D500 body already, the Nikon MB-D17 grip is now available to order from Amazon, offering a very welcome weight balance for those shooting longer lenses, as well as extended battery life, and ease of shooting portrait orientation images.Heck, the carrying case and plastic stand are bigger than they need to be.Personally, I wouldn't want a "portable" flash to be any larger than the SB-900 is.Five more of those D7200 bodies have been sold while I’ve been finishing off the rest of this post, so if you want one, hurry, hurry!
Nikon continues: ‘When the SB-900 (set to TTL auto flash mode) is used with a camera supporting the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS), flash mode automatically changes to A mode according to camera communication status.
Nikon has provided updates for the SB-900 firmware, something previously not done with Speedlight units.
The current firmware version is 5.0.2, and you can install that by downloading the proper file from Nikon's Web site and using a D90, D7000, D7100, D300, D600, D700, D800, D3 series, or D4 to perform the update (these cameras must have their firmware at the current version first).
Interestingly, it’s been put immediately on sale, discounted from the list price of 9.95 to £352.80, a 22% savings.
Sadly, the grip is already showing as “Temporarily out of stock“, although it will let you order and checkout.
