The Nikon SB-300 is a compact flash for Nikon cameras with full automatic support and a bounce head. The flash has a powerful GN18m/59ft (ISO100) and covers the same field as a 27mm lens on FX, or a 18mm lens on DX. The bounce head lets you point the flash up wards to bounce off the ceiling for a softer and more flattering light on your subject. When used with cameras with CLS support, the SB-300 allows for additional features like Slow Sync, Front Curtain Sync, and Rear Curtain Sync. The SB-300 speedlight is light and compact – at only 3.4oz (4.2oz with 2*AAA batteries) it is an easy addition to your camera bag that can really add a lot to your photography.

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.

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.

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.

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.
