    Too bad you don't own an F6. It's i-TTL with no manual settings, so no dice with other Nikon film cameras. The SB-22/23 speedlights are usually fairly cheap if you want/need a small flash.

    Again, you're SOL. It's a digital-only flash and won't talk to your N90s.

    Yeah it's the low end flash for the digitals. I have the SB-15 bought for $2.00, works fine with my F5. Shoud work well with the N90s as the flash system of the N90s is very close to that of the F5.

    Problem now is the "Strobist" effect that's driven up the price of SB-24/25/26/28 speedlights for studio use over the last couple of years.

    The SB 600 will work on the N90s

    The SB800 is more flexible and can support different TTL modes along with manual modes. So it can be used on a film body, an early digital body like the D1, or a modern digital body. But the SB400 is a stripped down consumer flash, it does not support the legacy TTL modes, and only works on more modern digital bodies, so it cannot be used with a film body.

    SB-600 and 800 are the last of do-everything models. 700 and 900 (and 400) are iTTL only. In case of 400, it won't even fire if it isn't connected to iTTL compatible models.

    By the way, later models, except for 400 can be used in manual or automatic mode with just about everything. Just not TTL.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
