As VinceP mentioned above, and this was covered in a recent thread if you have a backlit subject the Nikon with the TTL Balanced Fill really does make a difference. I believe only the Nikon flashes have this. I had the SB800 previously and it works by using the settings on the flash. The SB500 I got for travel and I love having it in my bag. It also can control the SB800 off camera and the settings are integrated and set in the Z camera.

Ok I get you now. Thanks.

The prior thread.

Just so people can see. Look at these three shots - TTL only, TTL -1EV, TTL-BL

TTL only

TTL with -1EV


Wow that looks great that the flash adjusts so not to blow out the backlit rear. So is that basically the difference between what non Nikon flash units can do in photo 1 and what Nikon flashes can do with TTL-BL in photo 3? I love that.
