p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Replacement dome for SB-900


The diffusion dome on my SB-900 cracked and I'm looking for a replacement. The genuine Nikon part is nearly $30 here but I find many on eBay for just a few dollars. Are the cheap units from Asia just as good at 1/6 the price?

Can anyone suggest a cheaper replacement?

The $3 (shipped) ebay diffuser I got for my SB-800 clicked in place and registered with the flash just like the original. The overall appearance and quality also looked about the same. I frankly think $3 is high for a small piece of average quality plastic. The one you get from Nikon comes from the same big red slave factory in the east as the ebay one and is worth about the same.

There's no reason for us to support a 1,000% markup by Nikon just because they think they have a captive customer base for their accessories. They could have made a hefty profit at $7-8 and you would not have thought twice about buying one. But they decided to go for broke on accessories, so that gives you a chance to teach them a lesson in free market economics.

Blah, blah, blah...If you can swing $500 for the flash, pay the $20 and get the Nikon part.

Don't forget to update us after you buy the $47 Nikon tripod from B&H. It should match your cameras like only a Nikon product can!

Also, I better not catch you with a diffuser dome on your SB-600, because Nikon did not make one!

What brand is your strap??

Both. If you're a true Nikon purist, that should 'cover' everything!
