Nikon SB-28 AF-TTL Speedlight

After the official debut of the Nikon F5, Nikon introduced a new flash in 1997. The most significant feature when compared to any of the super-flash models such as SB-24, SB-25 and SB-26 is its overall dimension - weighing only at 320g (approx. 11oz), the weights reduction is nearly 30% lighter than all predecessors. The has a flat panel design at its rear section where the LCD and control buttons locate is cleaner and less cluster than previous Nikon flash model(s).

Note: * Because the European version of the SB-28 comes with a different shaped connector, Nikon DC Units SD-7, SD-8 and the Power Bracket Unit SK-6 are not compatible.

Other than the main ON/OFF switch, all other switches are eliminated. All the hard rubberized recessed buttons are said to be designed as moisture proof. Actually, the removal of the sliding switches is a good idea, as the flash is a highly sophisticated electronic flash with mind boggling combinations of functions, the more switches can accidentally cause unintentional switches the flash to a different functions, although in many ways, the flash exposure/metering is somehow controlled via the camera rather than the flash itself. Frankly, the front and rear section of the flash projects a very different feel and look, with a combination of a modern, high tech look at the front and a slightly conservative feel at the back. I think after years of research and accumulating all users' feedback, probably the emphasis now in an all new designing concept for a modern Nikon flash is a mix between practicality and elegance. The main strength of this Nikon flash is user's friendliness - and it is very inviting to for photographers to explore its potential, individual control button now is well illustrated with its purpose and it allows users easier to "guess" in relation to its respective functions, even without a manual in hand to refer.

Other than size and form, this rigid and very well made Nikon SB-28 has a few changes in its features although largely, its core functions remains intact when used with any modern high-techno Nikon AF bodies. In terms of performance, it is the same with the previous SB-26, where it offers a raw power output measures with its Guide Number of 36 (ISO 100, m): 36 (with zoom head set at 35mm and higher at other zoom settings i.e. 164 ft (50m) ISO 100 at 85mm setting); uses standard AA Alkaline or Lithium cells (KR-6) and accepts variable external power sources for extended shooting in a long session. The built-in wide adapter enables its flash coverage spreads down to a 18mm ultrawideangle lense.

This top of the line Nikon flash has removed the much hyped wireless remote slave flash feature has been omitted from the feature list (the smaller SB-27 still has that feature retained) and the external control rear curtain sync switch is also eliminated (this might posed some problem with Nikon F4 which depends on the flash setting to set this mode). The FP high speed is usable with selective capable Nikon SLR bodies and with its high power capacity, repeating flash is also very usable at moderate distance. Another nice feature is - once turn the flash on, the flash will stay at ready to burst status and if after 80 sec. or so of inactivity, the energy saver will revert the flash to a standby mode.

The film speed is set automatically once a capable Nikon AF body is connected. Its luminous LCD panel has a complete set information display where it needed, basic info such as zoom setting, apertures, film speed, flash modes, version of TTL used, distance range of flash output etc. When operating in manual exposure, other than it offers full, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/ 16, 1/32 and 1/64 output, the flash also calculates and recommends exactly what aperture to use for distance coverage and also indicate the correct exposure in terms of distance, power output, and aperture setting.

<<< --- If you think the built-in reflector card is too restrictive for your type of flash photography, you may combine third party products such as this combination used by a contributor: Nikon Flash Unit SB-28 with Lumiquest Promax Softbox and the TTL Extension Sync Cord SC-17. Naturally, one or more of the SB-28s and/or other Nikon TTL flash can also be used at the same time for multi-flash setup. See here for a possible combination.

Overall, this high performance top-of-the-line Nikon Speedlight can be very appealing IF - you are looking for a new Nikon flash to supplement your purchase of a Nikon F5, F100 and/or F80 etc. where you love to unleash full potential of the respective Nikon bodies provide or in another scenario if you have already owned an older version of Nikon AF Speedlight such as SB-20, SB-23 etc. and wish to upgrade and/or add another high performance AF flash for your flash photography. However, other than its size and weight (if you seriously think it makes a difference), the SB-28 may not present any significant advantage to call for replacement and/or upgrade if you have already possessed a previous Nikon AF flash model such as SB-25 and/or SB-26. Owner of SB-24 may also consider this only if you have upgraded your camera system to a newer series of Nikon SLRs such as F5 or a F100. Well, basically, all I intended to say is, because this Nikon flash is not that cheap all together (retailing from USD280.00 -US320-00 a piece) and seriously need sme justification for such investment.

d1backview.jpg
The SB-28 recently has another upgrade with a twin sister in a Nikon SB-28DX AF-TTL speedlight - specifically tailored for the Nikon DIGITAL SLR series (DX version offers D_TTL Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash for Nikon D1/D1H/D1x or D100 or later bodies) but it will operate and function the same like a normal SB-28 with any capable Nikon AF SLRs. So, if think you are planning for another path in digital photography in the near future and if financially it is viable to do so, that could well be another more logical alternative.

Optional
Nikon flash accessories There are various ways of connecting Nikon Speedlights to a Nikon SLR such as F5, F100 or a F90(x) other than direct mounting. For instance, you can use the Nikon SC- 17 TTL Remote Cord for off-camera flash photography (approx. 1.5m). Up to two more units can be connected to the SC-17's terminals through the TTL Multi-Flash Sync Cord SC-18 or SC-19 for TTL multi-flash photography.

Wanring Signal:
The flash ready-light in the camera's viewfinder will blink: F90X/N90s viewfinder display is shown SB28F90xwarning.gif
Cameras in Groups I (except F70-Series/N70 ), II, III, V and VI (
see table above) - in the TTL mode, when you press the shutter release button halfway, to warn that the SB-28 has not been securely mounted on the camera or that the flash output may have been insufficient for correct exposure.
Cameras in Groups V and VI - in the TTL mode, to indicate that the ISO rating of the film in use is higher than the ISO set on the SB-28's LCD panel, (or lower in the case of the FA camera).
Cameras in Group VI - in the TTL mode, when the shutter speed is set to M90, M250, or B.
Cameras in Group VII - to warn that tflash shooting is not possible.
FM3A, New FM2: -when the shutter speed set is faster than the flash sync speed.

Optional Accessories:

Accessories for multiple flash Sync Cord SC-11 and SC-15 Sync Cords SC-11 and SC-15 are handy when you want to use the SB-28 off-camera or for use with cameras without accessory shoes. These cords also allow you to perform Multiple Flash photography in the Manual (M) mode. The SC-11 is approx. 25 cm (9.8 in.) long and the SC-15 is approx. 1m (3.2 ft) long. TTL Remote Cord SC-17 and SC-24 The TTL Remote Cord SC-17 provides TTL Auto Flash operation when the SB-28 is used off-camera. Its flash shoe comes with one tripod socket and two TTL multiple flash terminals. The TTL Remote Cord SC-24 is for use with F5 cameras mounted with a High-Magnification Finder DW-30 or DW-31 or F4 cameras with a High-Magnification Finder DW-20 or DW-21. Both the SC-17 and SC-24 are approx. 1.5m (4.9 ft) long. TTL Multi-Flash Sync Cord SC-18 and SC-19 Multi-Flash Sync Cords SC-18 or SC-19 are useful for connecting the SB-28 to the multiple flash terminal of the SC-17 or AS-10 for TTL multiple flash operation. The SC-18 is approx. 1.5 m (4.9 ft) long, and the SC-19 is approx. 3 m (9.8 ft) long. TTL Multi-Flash Adapter AS-10 Use Multi-Flash Adapter AS-10 when connecting more than three flash units together for TTL multiple flash operation, or if the secondary flash units are not equipped with multiple flash terminals. The AS-10 comes with one tripod socket and three TTL multiple flash terminals. Sync Terminal Adapter AS-15 The Sync Terminal Adapter AS-15 is necessary when connecting the SB-28 to cameras not having a sync terminal. Wireless Slave Flash Controller SU-4 Useful for multiple flash photography, the SU-4 features a built-in, movable light sensor and an accessory shoe for attachment of a slave Speedlight. The SU-4’s light sensor not only triggers the slave unit to fire in unison with the master flash, but controls the flash duration of the slave unit in sync with the master unit to provide TTL, non-TTL, or Manual operation. TTL Flash Unit Coupler AS-17 for F3-Series cameras Dedicated adapter for F3-Series cameras providing TTL flash operation with Nikon Speedlights such as SB-29 and SB-28 featuring ISO-type mounting foot (not designed for F3).

• You CANNOT use a sync cord when the SB-28 is set to the TTL mode.
Usable sync cords SC-11 (approx. 25 cm) SC-15 (approx. 1m)
NOTE • To connect the SB-28 to a camera without a sync terminal, use optional Sync Terminal Adapter AS-15. • Use the sync/multiple flash terminal when connecting the SB-28 to other Nikon flash units via sync cords. • When the SB-28 is connected to a camera via a sync cord, it provides neither automatic sync speed setting nor ready-light indication inside the camera’s viewfinder. To maintain all functions, use the optional TTL Remote Cord SC-17. • If a non-Nikon flash unit—one incorporating a high-voltage (above 50V) or negative voltage sync circuits—is connected to the SB-28’s sync/multiple flash terminal, the SB-28’s protection circuit is activated, resulting in improper operation of the unit.
