- According to Wayne Shipman from Eastman Kodak, they Eastman Kodak have determined that the Nikon SB-28D flash unit that was sold by Kodak Professional dealers offers the same functionality as the newest version SB-28DX model that Nikon began marketing shortly after. Kodak Professional has chosen not to carry the SB-28DX at this time. Anyone considering the purchase of the SB-28D will be able to substitute the SB-28DX successfully. Kodak's dealers are being notified, but you saw it here first on Sports Shooter!!!
