Nikon Speedlight SB-600

The Speedlight solution built to complement D-SLR photography

Nikon Corporation announced the introduction of the Speedlight SB-600 in 2004. It is a compact flash packed with impressive functionality inherited from the renowned SB-800, it serves as a solid base for the Nikon Creative Lighting System when used in combination with Nikon digital SLRs. When used in combination with Nikon’s latest digital SLRs, the D2X, D2H and D70, the SB-600 supports Advanced Wireless Lighting as a remote Speedlight that can be positioned as one of multiple remote flashes to significantly extend creative possibilities.

To assist in such situations, the Speedlight SB-600 also has a readylight located beside the LCD on the rear panel that can be easily seen from a distance. The SB-600 can also emit an audible alert for further assistance. Auto FP High-Speed Sync enables the use of Fill-Flash even in bright daylight with wide aperture settings for the achievement of outstanding results and new creative possibilities, including the effective blurring of out-of-focus background elements.

An optional color filter set SJ-1 is also available, allowing imaginative shooting to be pushed even further. White balance is optimized through the use of flash color information obtained by the Speedlight. The SB-600 also features FV lock, which gives the user the convenience of being able to maintain the measured flash value while recomposing the shot to achieve the appropriate flash output for the subject. It also offers uncomplicated operation made simpler by an easy-to-view LCD with only six buttons, each of which is backlit and simple to understand. The Nikon Speedlight SB-600 also has plenty of style, both with compact dimensions and a triangular motif consistent with the Nikon D-SLR theme. The Nikon Speedlight SB-600 comes complete with a Speedlight stand and a soft case, while two TTL Remote Cords, SC-29 and SC-28, and the Color Filter Set (SJ-1) are available as options.

Versatile Remote Speedlight for the Creative Lighting System Available Options with D2X/H Pro Digital SLR and D70 Digital SLR: i-TTL Mode, Advanced Wireless Lighting, FV Lock, Flash Color Information and Wide Area AF illuminator i-TTL Flash control : Accurate, seamless Fill-Flash capability under the most difficult, tricky lighting situations FV Lock (Flash Value Lock) allows photographers to change the composition or zoom for the shot while maintaining desired lighting of the subject Auto FP High Speed Sync Mode when used with D2X/H Pro Digital SLR delivers needed fill flash in bright light or with wide aperture Nikkor lenses.

* Creative Lighting System The SB-600 features a new Nikon Speedlight system, called Creative Lighting System (CLS). This system offers additional flash shooting possibilities with digital cameras by taking advantage of a camera’s digital communication capabilities. CLS is available only when the SB-600 is used with compatible Nikon cameras. The SB-600 offers these major features:
** i-TTL mode This is a new TTL auto flash mode in the Creative Lighting System. Monitor Preflashes are fired at all times. The subject is correctly exposed by the light from the flash lighting and the exposure is less affected by the ambient light than in the conventional TTL mode.
*** Advanced Wireless Lighting With Advanced Wireless Lighting, wireless multiple flash operation in the TTL (i-TTL) mode can now be accomplished with digital SLRs. In this mode, you can divide the remote flash units into three groups and control the flash output independently for each group, expanding your range of creative multiple-flash shooting techniques. The SB-600 can be used only as a wireless remote flash unit

**** Flash Value Lock Flash Value (FV) is the amount of flash exposure needed for a subject. Using FV Lock with compatible cameras, you can lock in the appropriate flash exposure for the main subject. This flash exposure will remain fixed, even if you change the aperture or composition, or zoom the lens in or out.
***** Flash Color Information Communication When the SB-600 is used with compatible digital SLRs, color temperature information is automatically transmitted to the camera. In this way, the camera’s white balance is automatically adjusted to give you the correct color temperature when taking photographs with the SB-600.
****** Auto FP High-Speed Sync High-Speed flash synchronization at your camera’s highest shutter speed is now possible. This is useful when you want to use a wider aperture to achieve shallow depth of field to blur the background .
******* Wide-Area AF-Assist Illuminator In autofocus operation, the SB-600 emits AF-Assist illumination over a much wider area than existing Speedlights. This enables you to perform autofocus photography in dim light even after you change the focus area of cameras supporting this function.
******* Colored Gel Filter Set SJ-1: The color of light can be balanced or specific colors can be added to a scene by using a Speedlight with the optional Colored Gel Filter Set SJ-1. The optional Colored Gel Filter Set SJ-1 contains a total of 20 filters in 8 kinds of colored gels.

* Compatible with CLS* (* CLS: Creative Lighting System The SB-600 is connected to cameras compatible with CLS*.
* Wireless remote flash In the wireless multiple flash mode, the SB-600 is set as a remote flash unit, which fires in sync with the master flash unit.
* Sound monitor When the SB-600 is set as a remote flash unit, you can monitor its operation by listening to the beeping sound.

Characteristics of the LCD panel * Due to the directional characteristics of LCDs, the display is difficult to read when viewed from above. However, the display can be seen clearly from a slightly lower angle. The LCD display becomes darker at high temperatures (approx. 60°C/140°F), but returns to normal at normal temperatures (20°C/68°F). The LCD’s response time decreases at low temperatures (approx. 5°C/41°F and below), but returns to normal at normal temperatures (20°C/68°F).

Using the SB-600 in dim light Press any button on the SB-600 to turn the illuminator on (when the SB-600 power is on), and it will remain lit for 16 seconds. To cancel the LCD panel illumination, go to the Custom Settings mode (p. 52) and set it to OFF. Even if the LCD panel illuminator is set to OFF, the SB-600’s LCD panel illuminator turns on when the camera’s LCD panel illuminator is turned on. The LCD panel illuminator also lights up when the Custom Settings mode is displayed.

Compatible Lenses Nikkor lenses are divided into two types: CPU Nikkor lenses and non-CPU Nikkor lenses:
lensCPU.gif lensG.gif lensD.gif  
CPU Nikkor lenses G-type Nikkor‚ D-type Nikkor‚ Non-G/D-type AF Nikkor (except for AF Nikkor for the F3AF)‚ AI-P Nikkor Non-CPU Nikkor lenses AI-S Nikkor, AI Nikkor‚ Series E

CPU lenses CPU lenses have CPU contacts. G-type Nikkor lenses G-type Nikkor lenses send distance information to the camera body, but do not have an aperture ring. Therefore, set the aperture on the camera body. With some cameras, the usable exposure mode is limited. D-type Nikkor lenses D-type Nikkor lenses send distance information to the camera body. Set the aperture either on the lens aperture ring or on the camera body.

Update: Construction of this Instruction Manual Section was suspended midway through because a caring gentleman has given me a link to the Instruction Manual in a PDF format for this Nikon flash. So, this has saved me the trouble of converting one for all of you (believe me, it is tedious process...). However, I am only listed things that are critically of importance in the handling of this SB-600 Speedlight so anyone of you can set up the flash as fast as you can for your assignment. My personal advice: You SHOULD download a copy of the User's Manual in PDF format for safekeeping for future reference WHILE it is still available there online.
