The Nikon SB-300 AF Speedlight is a lightweight and compact on-camera flash for Nikon DSLRs or hot-shoe equipped COOLPIX cameras. With a guide number of 59' at ISO 100 and an effective range of 2-66 feet, you'll get soft and balanced light for excellent color, skin tones, and lighting throughout your entire shot.
The SB-300 features a 120° tilting head, allowing you to bounce your flash off the ceiling or walls for softer, less direct light. It has stops at 75°, 90°, 120°, and when pointing directly ahead.
Nikon’s i-TTL (intelligent Through-The-Lens) flash coverage technology tailors the characteristic of the flash to the shot. An imperceptible pre-flash fires milliseconds before the main flash to gather information about the scene—shadow areas, subject distance and reflectance. Your i-TTL capable camera and the SB-300 AF Speedlight then work together to achieve the best exposure and white balance setting possible, all in a fraction of a second.
This flash is designed to be light and compact, weighing only 3.4 oz. It uses AAA batteries and comes with a Nikon SS-DC1 soft case to keep it safe while not in use.
