The SB-N5 draws its power from the camera body. The SB-N7 has its own power supply (AAA batteries). This definitely justifies the small price difference, and should result in faster cycle times.

The SB-N7 has more power than the SB-N5 with a Guide Number of 18/59 (m/ft, ISO 100) compared to the SB-N5's rating of 8.5/27.9 (ISO 100, m/ft), 12/39.4 (ISO 200, m/ft). In addition the SB-N7 also supports the use of the SW-N7 Wide-Flash Adapter for widening the angle of coverage.

Both the SB-N5 and the SB-N7 have an effective flash range of 0.6m to 20m/2 ft to 66 ft (varies with ISO sensitivity, bounce angle, and aperture). Recycle times are not available for Nikon1 Speedlights.

The SB-N7 is made specifically for the Nikon1 line of cameras and is not compatible with the D60. The following Speedlights in Nikon's active lineup are compatible with the D60: SB-910, SB-900, SB-700, SB-400 and the R1C1 Wireless Close-Up System.

For a DSLR/Speedlight compatibility chart please see this page on Nikonusa.com:

Question

Will SB-N7 wirelessly deal with my SB800 & 600 using CLS?

The promo writeup on the SB-N7 talks about supporting CLS. Will I be able to use the unit to trigger and meter the SB800 and SB600 I have kept? It would seem so since your website shows the successor to these as part of a V2 "system" when those big units will not slip on the dedicated accessory shoe

You will only be able to control the SB-800 using its SU-4 mode as there is no CLS commander to use any speed lights off camera.

Question

So with SB-N7: use my SB800 in SB-4 mode...or must I buy an actual SB-4

Follow on to previous question on SB-N7's CLS support. Do I just set the SB-800 (or 900 or 910) into SB-4 mode.....or must I actually purchase and SB-4 and slip it on the bottom of the SB-800

...Rather than wait for this answer, I put my SB-N5 on my V1, set my SB800 to SU-4 mode and (without having an actual SB-4), it did fire the SB800. So i'll set on-cam and remote flash at various fractional powers. My SB600 has no such mode, so I'll trade it with my old DX gear.

Question

Why no bounce capability when shooting vertical. What a bad design flaw

Was going to upgrade from the SB-N5 to the new SB-N7 until I found out it can not bounce off the ceiling when shooting vertical. Can't believe Nikon would make such a dumb design flaw
