    Default Flash for Nikon D90

    Hi Everyone , I need to get a flash for my D90 and adding a "better beamer " to it. Any recommendations or ideas.

    Cheers Glen

    Maybe an SB 800 or 600. You will need an FX-4 Better beamer kit for that flash head. Check out Birds as Art.com

    Hi Paul , Thanks for getting back to me , is the SU 800 (seems a new model) the same as the SB800. I am not sure wether a better beamer will fit this new type. That Birds as Art is a good site.

    Cheers Glen

    Glen, I use the SB 600 and SB 900 with Better Beamers. Choosing the right flash depends on your intended use. I've found the relative small size of the SB 600 and ease of use idea for most birding situations. I got the SB 900 mainly because it offered more options, such as the ability to add a battery pack. It is also a lot bigger and more expensive. I guess the SB 800 is somewhere in the middle.

    Hi Glen,

    I'm sure you have already purchased your flash by now but anyway..... I use a D90 with SB600 and SB800 and a Better Beamer. If I were to buy a flash now (2012) I would buy a SB900 or SB910 because it has a zoom setting of 200mm and I would not need the B.B. at all.
