Product Description

Bouncing the light for beautiful indoor images

Pictures can appear very different and achieve various expressions depending on how you manipulate the light. But lighting a shot is not at all difficult with the SB-300 Speedlight. Its flash head can be set up to 120 degrees upward allowing you to bounce light off ceiling or wall to endow a softer, more natural look to your subject. You can easily control the lighting to capture a beautiful indoor portrait creatively.

Compact and lightweight design for great portability

With its compact and lightweight design, comfortable portability is ensured even when attached to a camera. The SB-300 is certain to expand your enjoyment of shooting pictures in a variety of scenes.

Easy operation even for novices

Attach the SB-300 to a camera supporting Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS) or a COOLPIX model supporting i-TTL flash control, and switch the power on. This is all you have to do to enjoy flash photography. Thanks to Nikon's highly accurate i-TTL flash, the amount of light output is automatically and appropriately controlled, achieving high-quality flash shots reliably.

Compatible with readily available AAA-size batteries

The SB-300 uses two AAA-size alkaline or NiMH batteries which are readily available anywhere, so you'll never run out of power.
