The SB910 was able to balance the room lighting which was high intensity halogen light fixtures placed to give rooms a brighter feel. This was all great for selling the house, but created a
photographic nightmare since each light could create a blown out area in each picture. Using the D750 and a single SB910 I pulled this shoot off and the house sold the same day it was listed.
The SB910 works equally well on DX body cameras. Here's some samples with the D7200 of food and general photography.
The children were photographed with a D3200 and the SB910.
