Customer Question
Is a Nikon speedlight...

Is a Nikon speedlight SB-800 flash compatible with a Nikon D-7200

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

I'm not sure exactly when I purchased my SB-800 speedlight, I'm guessing it's about 5 years old. I originally bought it with my prior Nikon D-7000, but I am on the verge of purchasing a D-7200 from my photography store, and I want to make sure my flash unit will work with the D-7200

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I have never had a problem with my SB-800 flash unit. My Nikon D-7000 has periodically had technical problems, most recently it's overexposing outdoor photos quite badly, and so I am planning to have it repaired by an official Nikon repair shop in Sacramento, and my plan is to sell it, and purchase a D-7200 from the owner of my photo store in Reno, NV

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Before I purchase this D-7200, does the D-7200 model have a good track record, without many problems ?
