Flash for Nikon D40

2 posts in this topic

I have a scheduled family event coming up, a night Launch trip on Mil Lacs. I am thinking that I may need a flash to take some better pictures of this event. Any suggestions for me? I want one for the D40 but one that will also work on the planed upgrade to the D90.

Any flash that works with your D40 will work for your upgrade, whatever that may be. I would suggest the SB800 or SB900 first off, if they are in your budget. These are amazing flashes that will do pretty much anything you every want it to. Next to that would be the SB600 which is also a great flash, although without the power of the others. The attractive thing about the SB600 is the price. It is considerably less money than the others and will serve you very well. It all comes down to what you want to spend and if you don't want to ever worry about upgrading. If you ever want to use off camera flash when you upgrade to the D90 you really want to think about the SB800 or SB900. They are able to work with the Nikon CLS (Creative Lighting System). Off camera flash is something that you really should try. It will take your flash photography to another level.

Oh, I'm sure there are other brands out there too, but I can't comment on those.

Good Luck and have fun. Any of these will be a tremendous improvement over your pop-up flash!

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
