SB-600 Buttons and Controls

Flash Head

To point the SB-600’s flash head in different directions, press the Tilt button (figure 4.2) with your finger and rotate the head. The flash head will rotate 270 degrees side to side and 90 degrees vertically. You need to press the button to begin movement, but you don’t need to keep pressing it to continue.

If you look closely at the back of the flash head, you will notice that it has angle scales. However, they are not really useful unless you are telling someone else how to set up your flash.

Wide Angle Adapter

If your lens has a wider angle than 24 mm, then it makes good sense to pull out the Wide Angle Adapter to improve your flash coverage (figures 4.3 and 4.4). Notice that when you deploy it, the flash automatically zooms to 14 mm. This means the Wide Angle Adapter allows an angle of coverage the same as a 14 mm lens. You can also use this adapter as a diffusion panel for close-ups to take some harshness away from the flash.
