    I am new to photography. Just want to take great photo for my three kids and family. Just bought a Nikon d5100 kit from Costco. Need a flash. Can’t decide between 700 and the 910.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Tracy, I’d say go with the 700. It’s a very capable flash that will still give you lots of creative options. After you learn more, you can always upgrade later. Also, you might want to pick up my flash eBook, Going Fast With Light.

  • Cristian says:

    Thanks Dan for the good, straight to the point review. I already have a SB-910 and is indeed great. I am now looking for a second flash and potentially a third one as I’m learning and experiment more with lighting. Do you think there’s a need to get another SB-910 or for a secondary one SB-700 is just fine. If I get a SB-700 I might use the rest of the money for the a third light like a Yongnuo.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Christian, The SB-700 is a very capable flash. In some ways, it’s better than the SB-800, and as a second, third or fourth flash, it’s a very good option. If you already have the SB-910, then, you’ll probably be fine with 700s as additional lights.

    Can you please advise me, the brand and best type of battery I should purchase for the SB-910 Flash unite. Thanks Regards, Malcolm.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Malcolmm, I recommend the Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable batteries. They’re high capacity and hold their charge for a very long time. That’s what I use in all of my Nikon speedlights.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
