4Solid reference product -- good for understanding using CLS  Sep 22, 2009
By D. Rees "Nikon fan"
Good overview of how to finally master the Nikon Creative Lighting System. Only knock on this is that spends a fair amount of time on the SB900 capabilities -- so for those of us who aren't spending that kind of dough and have the SB600 several of the menu elements don't come into play. Also uses several physical setups that are beyond what an amateur photographer would normally have.

2There is better out there  Nov 10, 2010
By skibum21
I have seen this video and found that it had some useful tips and tricks but if you want to really learn how to use the Nikon flash system look at Nikons school video called "a hands on guide to creative lighting", it is about the same price and much more informative. I have an sb 800 and an sb 600 with a nikon d300s camera found that the Nikon video gave more helpful information than just how to use the flashes like this video.See link belowNikon School presents A Hands-on Guide to Creative Lighting

5Must Have for Nikon SB700  Dec 10, 2012
By Barrie Bracken "scholar"
If you have a Nikon Speedlight SB700 and a Nikon D7000 camera, this video is right for you. Even if you don't have both of these, you will find this extremely useful. This dvd offers 118 minutes of clear and concise instruction. If you already have the Blue Crane video Understanding the Nikon Speedlight, you will see some duplication in this video, but it is still worthwhile because it concentrates on the SB700.
The video instructs on the use of the SB700 with the D7000. Amng the topics covered are:
2. Flash compensation
3. Master/remote settings
4. Commander mode
5. Quick wireless control--very valuable and informative
6. Hard vs soft light
7. Three point lighting
8. Slow sync demystified--very useful
9. Front and rear curtain sync
10. High speed sync
11. Controlling background exposure
12. Bounce flash techniques
13. Auto and manual zoon--very helpful
14. Illumination patterns
15. Inverse square law /light fall off--very informative for me

There are more items covered, and if you are expert you may not share my enthusiasm for the topics I found most helpful. Like all reviews this is subjective. For me this item deserves five stars.

Bought the 910 upgraded from d800 never really knew how to operate. Video touches on all the great features you need to know + multi flash systems.
