The Nikon SB-300 Speedlight is a great entry level on-camera flash for beginner and enthusiast Nikon shooters. Its compactand lightweight design fits unobtrusively in your gear bag and is suited to on-the-go photographers.
Compatible with the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS) or any Coolpix camera with i-TTLflash control makes set up incredibly simple. Just attach the flash to a compatible camera, switch on the power and let Nikon’s highly accurate i-TTL system automatically determine the correct light output.
The adjustable flash head can be tilted up to 120° upward, allowing you to fine-tune the direction of light according to your scenario. This flash head adjustability also enables you to bounce light of ceilings or walls to minimise shadows and produce a softer, more flattering effect.
Powered by 2 readily available AAA batteries, the Nikon SB300 flash is perfect for photographers wanting to expand their creative potential and explore the world of flash photography.
