    It depend on what is your requirement?? You can go for Nikon original Flash such as SB400, SB600, SB700 and SB900..(all for different purpose) If not you can also go for third party flash brand such as Nissin and Yong nuo..end of the day it really depend on you.. personally i find the Nissin Di622 MKII is good enough for ppl that is new to flash... Price is of course cheaper...

    you can also refer to this Thread for information as well.. It maybe able to help you..

    * Do note that third party flash also misses some functionality like BL mode, which in my opinion is one of the most advanced features of Nikon flashes* Quoted by DD123...

    Hi Ms Huang,

    Welcome to ClubSNAP.

    For your budget and your setup, either a new SB700 or a used SB900 would be great. Since your lens is 18-105mm, the SB700 is adequate as it can cover from 24-120mm (14mm using built in diffuser). But if you foresee you'll be adding longer lenses, then the SB900 is better as it can reach up to 200mm. I strongly recommend you to buy original Nikon speedlight, as it will give you full compatibility including high speed sync (HSS), creative lighting (CLS), and balanced filled flash (BL).

    There is an SB700 review here.

    Cheers.

    Erhh altho it provides more power for the distance, doubt u'll go that far. For 700 i tink is 120mm, which is gonna make it fire full power. Haha. SB700 serves quite gd for ppl not looking for further upgrades in some time.. as it gives quite a lot of functionality for its price. I'm using one and happy with it
