Optional Flash Units (Speedlights)
The camera supports the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS) and can be used with 
CLS-compatible flash units. Optional flash units can be attached directly to the 
camera accessory shoe as described below. The accessory shoe is equipped with a 
safety lock for flash units with a locking pin.
1
Remove the accessory shoe cover.
2
Mount the flash unit on the accessory shoe.
See the manual provided with the flash unit for details. 
The built-in flash will not fire when an optional flash unit is 
attached.
A
The AS-15 Sync Terminal Adapter
When the AS-15 sync terminal adapter (available separately) is mounted on the camera 
accessory shoe, flash accessories can be connected via a sync terminal.
D
Use Only Nikon Flash Accessories
Use only Nikon flash units. Negative voltages or voltages over 250 V applied to the accessory 
shoe could not only prevent normal operation, but damage the sync circuitry of the camera 
or flash. Before using a Nikon flash unit not listed in this section, contact a Nikon-authorized 
service representative for more information.
