|In addition to offering all the features of Nikon's SB-28 Speedlight, SB-28DX Speedlight flash unit enables TTL flash control with the Nikon D1 professional digital SLR camera. The SB-28DX features 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash for D1, designed specifically for Nikon's D1 digital SLR. It also offers AA (Auto Aperture) Flash capability with the Nikon D1.The Speedlight sets off a series of Monitor Pre-flashes before the main flash fires. The pre-flashes are detected by each of the five segments of the D1's TTL Multi Sensor. As a result, the main subject is properly illuminated by flash, and the background comes out looking natural for a well-balanced, superbly lit shot.Since the D1 uses a CCD instead of film, TTL flash control has been redesigned to ensure the same high-quality results offered by the 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash feature of current Nikon SLRs.The D1 employs a shutter blade located in front of the CCD. This allows TTL monitoring of the pre-flashes just before exposure and even after the reflex mirror goes up.A range of data is transmitted to the SB-28DX automatically (when using a CPU lens). Transmitted data includes: sensitivity, aperture value, focal length of the lens in use, and exposure compensation value.|

I owned the Nikon SB-28 which I use with my Nikon D-100 Digital SLR. Recently I purchased a Nikon D1X SLR at an auction and read where the Nikon SB-28DX was the speedlight to use with this camera. To be totally honest, I have not used it as yet. During the Holiday's I wanted to use cameras that I was totally familiar with, however I think that it will work well. I powered it up, so I know it works and feel comfortable that I will enjoy using it as Nikon manufactures quality products.
Everyone knows the name Nikon,known for quality; and this item is no exception. When i needed an extra light for use as an off camera light, someone suggested purchasing a used SB-28. It has turned out to be a great deal, both cost wise and quality wise. Though I cannot use it in the automatic mode, I own a Canon Mark II,it does work well in the manual mode. Even used, it is a good value, better than an off brand item.
I bought this flash to use with my Nikon F100. It is a match made in heaven. Both the camera and the flash communicate with one another allowing me to take photos without worry. Recently I took photos for a friend in very low light. The auto focus assist light worked like a charm! The flash also packs a powerful bunch. I typically bounce the flash when I can. It always puts out enough light for me to get my photograph. The built in bounce card also works quite well and I'm impressed with the quality that I get from using it when needed. You won't go wrong by purchasing one of these flashes for your film camera! In fact, buy several of them because they are selling for so little. It's amazing how quickly people move on to the next latest and greatest flash!
The best flash for my Nikon F100 it perfectly exposes the scene every time without fail even in program or automatic modes.
