Nikon SB-910 and a new lens to be announced on November 30th, 2011

Nikon will have a new product announcement next week, on Wednesday, November 30, 2011. The announcement will be for one or more of the products listed here - the SB-910 flash and one lens is probably the most likely scenario.

Nikon SB-900 speedlight has reached end of life?

I received separate emails from retailers in two different European countries that the Nikon SB 900 speedlight has reached end of life and can no longer be ordered. This is a rather unusual development since the SB-900 was announced in 2008. The previous SB-800 model was announced in 2003. Maybe this is just a glitch in Nikon’s […]
