Haven't timed it, but probably 3-4 seconds - pretty quick.
I have a Nikone D80..My Nikon SB700 flash just died and was going to buy a new Nikon SB700 but then saw these flashes...How does it compare to the SB700? Oct 31, 2014
It's fabulous. Excellent for portraits .the only issue I had was the wireless remote control. But I got a brand new one free and it works fine! Definitely recommened:)
Yes- it works with my D3000
If I already have a camera remote, do I need to get the separate one for the flash or will the camera one work with it? Nov 15, 2014
Not sure what you have, but the camera/flash remote control is a set of two items, one for each device, and they usually need to be the same brand for them to work together... If you only have a camera radio transmitter, you need to get the flash one, out of the box it will not work. But this kit comes with the set.
If i remember correctly, this kit comes with a tiny soft box that straps over the flash with an elastic band. seemed to work just fine.
Is the flash time HSS? Meaning 1/200s-1/20000s? I could not find it at the specs or web. I did find that with trigger the sync speed up to 1/250s. 12 days ago
Flashes in general can have a "blast" duration from 1/200 to 1/60,000 of a second depending on a wide variety of variables (subject distance, iso speed, reflectivity of subject etc. etc.) because the flash is so brief in duration if the shutter speed is set too high, part of the film or sensor will not receive proper illumination. This phenomenon creates a flash sync. speed usually around 1/200th of a second but often slower. If a person wants to use more ambient light shutter speeds can go as low as one desires and flashes can often be used to "paint" subjects by being fired multiple times on long exposures. IF however, you simply want a good flash pictures, let the camera set the "sync" speed and allow the flash to be the principle light. Experimentation can result in some very intriguing shots.
Can anyone tell me if this will work with a D70? I am upgrading to a D7100 in a few months, but am hoping to use this with both cameras if possible. Sep 6, 2014
I have this flash and it works flawlessly with my D5100 which uses the essentially the same Nikon I-TTL circuitry as the D70, D80, D90 series as well as most of the Nikon D series. I'm really satisfied with this Altura flash.
