Hotshoe Flash Requirement
« on: May 18, 2016, 12:47:39 pm »
Hello!

I was wandering if this Nikon hotshoe flash meets the minimum requirements for Photojournalism class?

Hi Brittaney,

Yes it would.  The SB-500 has the ability to swivel the flash upward (requirement) for bounce and fill and is more powerful (Guide Number 70')then lower-end ones such as the Metz Mecablitz 20 C-2 (Guide Number 66').
