Nikon’s New Compact SB-300 Speedlight

Nikon_SB-300SpeedlightThe SB-300 Speedlight is small enough to fit comfortably into a shirt pocket yet built for the user looking to take flash photography to the next level.

Providing more power and coverage than a built-in flash, the versatile and portable SB-300 lighting accessory is compatible with both Nikon D-SLR and Advanced Performance COOLPIX cameras. This new Speedlight covers a wide-angle 18mm in DX-format and operates via simple on-camera controls.

The SB-300 tilts up 120 degrees, allowing for the use of creative bounce flash to soften shadows and diffuse the flash for more flattering portraits and even exposures. The firmware is upgradable through supporting D-SLRs, and this Speedlight is powered by two AAA batteries. Additionally, the SB-300 features thermal cut-out protection to prevent overheating when capturing rapid flash images in succession. For more information, go to www.nikonusa.com.
