Please Note: This model is now discontinued and a new version is now available: Nikon SB-910 Speedlight Flashgun The SB-900 Speedlight Flashgun. This Nikon's successor to the popular SB-800 Speedlight. The high-performance SB-900 features a wide 17-200mm auto zoom range (larger than the 24-105mm zoom range of the SB-800), three illumination patterns, a newly designed and extra efficient operation with a LCD that displays full-information, and AF-Assist illumination which is compatible with the new generation AF-sensors. The Speedlight SB900 Nikon Flashgun delivers a high-speed recycle time due to its improved booster circuit and for the first time in a flash unit, firmware can be uploaded onto the Speedlight via a Nikon digital SLR camera.
The Nikon Speedlight SB-900 Flashgun also features additional useful functions, including the ability to swivel the head up to 180 degrees left or right, a built-in overheat protection system and automatic filter detection which delivers an unprecedented white balance correction, even in fluorescent lighting conditions.
Using the SB-900, you can make the most of the benefits of the Nikon Creative Lighting System for both automation and comprehensive control, giving you the opportunity to explore endless lighting possibilities.

- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
