Discussion in 'Nikon' started by rick waller, Mar 22, 2007.
B&H sent out an announcement that they have them in stock as of this morning
Dang! Out of stock already!
An alternative is to buy a used SD-8, send it to Nikon and they will modify the plug so it becomes an SD-8A. Cost about $39.00 Joe Smith
What is the difference between an SD-8 and an SD-8A??
If you have the sb-800, you need the 'A' although there may be an adapter available for the older version. You can contact Nikon tech support to find out if your flash is compatible.
The difference is the plug that fits into the flash unit. The 8A has the worldwide plug design. The SD had the US. When Nikon made the decision to go with one plug for the world, they agreed to modify the US plugs on the SD's. I do not have any pictures to show the differences. I just know that the plug on the SD will not fit into the SB-800. Joe Smith
The SD-8 is squarish and the SD-8A is roundish
