|This Nikon Speedlight flash is a light, fast, and powerful replacement for the Vivitar 283, to which it is similar in terms of size and power. The Nikon SB 28 has a more compact design than most full-size Nikon flashes but does not lack for powerful. This shoe mount flash only weighs about 11 oz, nearly 30 percent less than its predecessors (SB 24, SB 25, and SB 26). This Nikon Speedlight flash offers wide compatibility and works seamlessly on all Nikon SLR cameras. The Nikon SB 28 displays a flat panel design, with a clean and uncomplicated rear section where the luminous LCD screen and control buttons are located. The liquid crystal display shows a complete list of basic information, such as zoom setting, aperture, film speed, flash modes, version of TTL, and distance range of flash output. This shoe mount flash uses standard AA Alkaline or Lithium (KR-6) batteries and also accepts variable external power sources to allow extended shooting during a long session. The integrated wide adapter of the Nikon Speedlight flash enables this useful tool to reach a coverage that spreads down to a 0.7-inch (18-mm) ultra wide-angle lens.|

I own several of the Nikon SB28, they are reliable, well built and inexpensive. They are older flashes built for film cameras but are excellent for strobist work. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to do light weight off camera flash work. I use them with Radio Poppers Jrx Studio triggers, it gives you wireless remote control of the flash output. Granted the flash is not as powerful as the newer flashes but light is light and I rarely set them to full power, and almost never use the Nikon CLS system. Really the only issue I have is that they do not have a flash slave, but not a big problem.
These Nikon SB-28 flashes may not be state-of-the-art or as powerful as some of the newer models, but I own 4 of them because they are built like tanks, are affordable, and never fail. I actually shoot with Canon cameras, but prefer Nikon speedlights for my off-camera work.
I used this flash for Off camera Flash for my Nikon d3000 trigger with Yongnuo flash trigger. Happy with this product.
The SB28 was my choice because it allowed me to set the power of the flash manually. It was one of Nikon's best and most reliable units and did not have many of the bells and whistles newer models have. It has proven to be exactly as advertised on eBay. The SB28 gives me complete control of the amount of light I want flash after flash. Newer models on auto settings don't always do that.
I love this flash. I used to have the Nikon Sb-600 and Sb-900. The Sb 900 is an awesome flash but is not worth the price and it will turn off automatically when it overheats which isn't always a good thing when your on a shoot. The Sb 600 is good for it's price but you cannot trigger it off camera unless you have the SU-800 or a SB 700,800,900. For a better price, you can easily get an SB-28 which you can hook a pocket wizard to. That is what I really love about the Sb-28. I now own two and have one I place on camera hot shoe and the other I use as a strobe. The Nikon SB-28s are my workhorse flashes. With that said, I don't see a reason to own any other speed light anytime soon. They're brilliant! check them out!
