Description

Designed exclusively for the Nikon F3 as a dedicated companion flash, the SB-12 Speedlight was Nikon’s first flash unit introduced with the Nikon F3 in 1980. It is a direct-mounting electronic flash unit providing automatic TTL control of the flash exposure. And It was also Nikon’s first flash to offer such a feature along with manual mode operation.
With the TTL flash exposure control feature offered in the Nikon F3, also Nikon’s first in their SLR bodies because the light is measured through the lens, as long as you are following guideline of how to set the flash correctly and more importantly, by ensuring flash-to-subject distance falls within the SB-12’s working range, you are assured of perfectly exposed flash pictures with a wide variety of lenses and accessory attachments for the camera.
By using a silicon-controlled rectifier and series circuitry, the speedlight is also able to save its excess energy for the next shot thus reducing recycling time. 
*The SB-12 only operates in manual mode with camera models other than the Nikon F3, even if you are using a flash coupler or by way of a sync cord. Other compact dedicated flash units like SB-16A, SB-17, which are also specially designed for the Nikon F3, can operate in either TTL (For F3), AUTO and manual, or even MD (Motor Drive Mode).
