Flash for F100 - SB-26 or SB-28

Discussion in 'General flash photography, lighting, and technique' started by BourbonCowboy, Aug 7, 2009.

  1. I just got a "new" F100, and now I'm thinking about picking up a flash. Which of these would be better (and why), and about how much would I expect to pay for one in very good condition?

    Just curious...will the SB-400 work on this old camera?

    The SB-26 predated the camera a little, but it ought to work well. The SB-28 was the one "made for it", so to speak. If you have a SB-600 or SB-800, they are backwards compatible too, and film TTL should work fine.

    But not the SB-400, it only does iTTL with iTTL cameras. And not the SB-900, Nikon abandoned backwards compatibilty then.
     
  3. Thanks Wayne. I'd hoped you'd be the one to answer.

    I think I'll pick up a used SB-28, as I'll be using my film body in places that I wouldn't want to risk my more expensive gear.
