Accessories Review: The Nikon Creative Lighting System|
(Monday, July 31, 2006 - 12:04 EDT)
This piece was actually buried back in our review of the original Nikon D70 SLR, but we felt that it really deserved to stand on its own: Nikon's Creative Lighting System is an incredibly capable and flexible system for flash photography.
Nikon D200 shooters can use it to balance and control the lighting from the on-camera strobe as well as two separate groups of remote units, with any number of individual strobes assigned to each remote group. The total system is so deep, our review really only scratches the surface of what it's capable of, but does nonetheless give a fair idea of what the system can accomplish. We also included a video showing how we used a Nikon CLS setup to capture studio-quality product shots right from the show floor at PMA 2005.
Check out our Nikon Creative Lighting System review, but as we caution, don't play with one of these setups until you're ready to buy one, they're that addicting!
