From the Manufacturer
Engineered for both FX and DX-format D-SLRs, the SB-910 offers unparalleled lighting performance in the field and in the studio. Featuring Nikon’s versatile i-TTL (intelligent through-the-lens) metering for on camera or wireless flash control, the SB-910 can operate as a hot shoe mounted Speedlight, remote unit or wireless Commander. And with refined operability including illuminated buttons for use in low light and improved thermal cut out protection, the SB-910 is the perfect partner to your Nikon camera.
Unparalleled lighting performance
Seamless integration with Nikon’s Creative Lighting System
The SB-910 Speedlight operates as a hot shoe mounted Speedlight, remote unit or wireless Commander (with up to four channel options) capable of controlling as many as three remote groups (A,B and C) and an unlimited number of SB-910, SB-900, SB-700 or SB-R200 units. With a host of pro flash features, including precision i-TTL flash control, Manual with Power Ratio, three illumination patterns for specific shooting environments, wide zoom range from 17–200mm and streamlined controls and menus, it’s no wonder that Nikon is the overwhelming choice when it comes to flash photography.
On the road or in the studio, the perfect partner
Real world simplicity with advanced automation
At the heart of the SB-910 is Nikon’s i-TTL flash control which enables Nikon Speedlights to share critical exposure information with CLS compatible D-SLRs. All of the complex lighting calculations are computed for you instantly with consistently accurate results in just about any lighting situation. Using the SB-910 as a Commander or in concert with the SU-800 Commander or D-SLR with built-in Commander operating as the Master controller you can wirelessly manage and fire up to three groups of remotely positioned SB-910, SB-900, SB-700 and SB-R200 Speedlights. Additionally, each group can contain any number of Speedlights and any mix of these Speedlights. SB-910 can also be set as a Remote Speedlight for complete system integration and control.
Improved control and convenience
Versatile flash for enthusiasts and professionals
SB-910 offers an improved interface adding a dedicated Menu button and illuminated buttons for control in low light. Additionally, hard type color correction filters are now used, providing durability and convenience when used with a camera set for Auto white balance. And when taking pictures in certain situations such as in rapid sequence, to prevent the flash tube from overheating an improved thermal cut out protection has been adopted that slows recycling instead of cutting off the flash.

Physically, you can't tell the two apart unless you look closely. The color correction gels on the 910 are also hard and better built. Internally, the 910 takes much longer to overheat and when it does, it slows down the flash rate (not sure about power) instead of just shutting down. I had fun playing with this flash (I don't own it yet since my current SB-800 is more than good enough) but if I were to buy one today, this would be it.
Who should get this?
If you do many events where power is important (bouncing lights off ceiling), rapid recycles, etc. get this.
If you do a lot of off camera CLS work, get this.
If you have an SB-900, I'd probably hold off.
If you have an SB-800 and don't need the easier controls, hold off.
If you have an SB-600 and need more power or a flash commander, get this.
If you have an SB-700 and need more power get this.
If you're just an average shooter who uses flash now and then at the kids' party or as fill flash here or there or just want an commander, the SB-700 is good enough.
If you're strapped for cash and don't need a commander, find a nice used SB-600...possibly used SB-800 if you can find it at $300ish, get that.
I have owned two flash units prior to this, the Nikon SB-600 Speedlight Flash for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras, and the Nikon SB-400 AF Speedlight Flash for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras before that. The jump from the SB-400 to the SB-600 was significant; while the SB-400 worked well in landscape, the inability to tilt the bulb to the side, as well as the lack of CLS/wireless capability, limited lighting profiles to only one or two options. Both the SB-600 and SB-910 have these options, so why bother upgrade?
The SB-600 has a zoom range of 24mm-85mm, with a 14mm option with use of the wide flash adapter. The SB-910 has a zoom range of 17-200mm, and goes down to around 11mm (from what I recall) with the use of the adapter. It complements the Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S ED VR II Nikkor Telephoto Zoom Lens for Nikon DX-Format Digital SLR Cameras well, as well as the Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED AF DX Fisheye Nikkor Lens.
User interface is THAT much better. I have not used the SB-700, 800, or 900, so I do not know the progression of the UI, but something major happened between the SB-600 and 910.Read more ›
The flash is a bit heavy and I worry about the foot breaking for those who like to turn camera and flash sideways for vertically framed shots. I have a stroboframe bracket that flips the camera to vertical, leaving the flash sitting peacefully atop my rig. I don't think I would use this flash with a cheap bracket that flips the flash about for vertical framed pictures.
Finally, you can get really beautiful lighting bouncing this flash of ceilings and walls. However, to rotate the head, you have to push pretty hard on a release button which is a bit of a pain. I understand why they included this feature, but truthfully, I could do without it.
Bottom line, I have to say it's an awesome flash. I went with the more powerful model because my lenses are slow, I like to bounce the flash a lot, and I take a lot of telephoto flash pictures. It has some bells and whistles I'll never use, but the features I take advantage of work very well.
The owners manual is pretty thick, but you should read it all and experiment with all modes and functions.
