Manual abstract: user guide NIKON SB-11
Detailed instructions for use are in the User's Guide.
[. . . ] Then, slip the adapter onto the speedlight's handle and slide it to. Orient the adapter so that its flat side is in the same plane as the speedlight's exposure calculator dial ® . Make sure the locking wheel ® is facing toward the rear of the speedlight.
Tighten the screws to secure the adapter into place.
4. Load the batteries.
Insert eight AA-type penlight batteries following the + and symbols on the inside of the battery clip.
5. [. . . ] When the Wide-Flash Adapter is clipped onto the front of the flash head, it increases the illumination to 67° horizontally and 48° vertically providing just the right amount of coverage when a 28mm lens is used. With the SW-3 attached, the light output of the speedlight is reduced resulting in a decrease in gUide number from 36 (ASAIISO 100 and meters) to 25. The ASAIISO 25 and feet guide number is reduced from 60 to 42 .
Note: To detach the Wide ·Flosh Adopter SW-3, first rotate the tilting flash head to other than the horizontal position. Then lift up the catch 01 the top of the S W-3 to remove it.

Exposure Calculator Dial ®
For Automatic Operation The SB-ll 's exposure calculator dial helps you select the usable range of £/stops for the speed of the film in use and the flash -to, subject distance. Each £/stop determines the usable distance range in which you can obtain the correct automatic exposure. The automatic shooting ranges for the three £/stops are indicated by a set of curved color-coded lines near the center of the dial. If the subject distance remains the same, the wider the aperture you select, the faster the recycling time of the speedlight and the greater the maximum shooting distance, but the less depth of field in the final photograph.
Conversely, if you choose a small aperture, the depth of field will be greater, but the recycling time will be longer and the maximum shooting distance is less. Therefore, in choosing an appropriate £/stop, you should take all these factors- depth of field, recycling time , and maximum shooting distance-into consideration. The follOWing examples explain how to use the exposure calculator dial:
Example 1 If you are using ASAIISO 100 film, you can shoot subjects at distances from 0. 6-9m (2-30ft) at £/4, 0. 6- 6. 4m (221 ft) at £/5. 6, and 0. 6-4. 5m (2-15ft) at £/8.
Example 2 With ASAIISO 100 and a subject three meters 00 feet) away, you can shoot at either fl4, fl5. 6, or fl8. Once you've selected an appropriate flstop for the film in use and the flash -to-subject distance, set this flnumber on your lens and fire away. Your pictures will come out properly exposed.
For Manual Operation Simply read off the flnumber which appears directly above the flash-to-subject distance W; then set this aperture on your lens. If it does blink, try moving the speed light closer to the subject or bounce surface, or reset the Sensor Unit SU-2 to a color-coded position calling for a wider aperture.

External Power Terminal @
This terminal is for connection of a separate battery pack.
Sync/Multiple Flash Sockets ®
Two standard Nikon screw-in type terminals are provided on the SB-ll SpeedJight. Either terminal can be used to attach the Sync Cord SC-ll, while the other is provided for connecting the SB-ll with another speedJight in series for multiple flash operation.
Nikon Camera Proper synchronization speed (sec. )
1/80 (X) or slower 11250 or slower 11250 or slower 1/ 125 or slower 1/250 or slower
FE2 FE FM2 (with 1I250sec. sync speed)
Sync Cord Sell ®
This cord has standard Nikon connections at both ends for positive attachment of the SB-11 to a Nikon camera having a screw-in type sync terminal.
FM2 (with 1/200sec. sync speed) F-30l /N2000* FG -20* FG* EM* F2-series

• These cameras do not have a sync terminal. To use the SB- II , you must first attach the Sensor Remote Cord SC-J3. Via the SC-13, the shutter speed is automatically swi tched to the proper synchronization speed with the camera in any automa tic exposure mode.
-ACCESSORIES------------TTL Remote Cords SC-12 and SC-23
The SC-12 is for the Nikon F3-series cameras; the SC-23 is for the Nikon FA, FE2 , F-30l1N2000 and FG cameras. Connecting the SB-l l and an appropriate camera with SC-12 or SC-23 provides TTL control of the flash exposure. Automatic switchover of shutter speed to a p roper flash sync speed and a ready-light indication in the camera's viewfinder are also provided. Alkalinemanganese batteries will produce approximately 270 flashes with the SB-l l and SB-14 on Manual (in normal temperatures). [. . . ] Batteries are drained much more qUickly by continuous use than by intermittent use . When not in use, the batteries should be removed to prevent damage from leakage. To minimize drain during the period of disuse, store the batteries in a cool, dry place below 20°C (68°F) . Do not mix brands of batteries , nor use batteries with different model numbers . [. . . ]
