This new Speedlight SB-300 is an extremely compact and lightweight unit. It has up to 120 degrees upward tilt so can be used for creative bounce lighting. Bouncing  light off a ceiling or wall will give a much softer and more natural look to your subject.

Images can be very original and creative depending on how you manipulate the lighting, after all photography is all about the lighting.

This unit is very compact and lightweight design for great portability.

If you attach the SB-300 flash to a camera supporting the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS) or a COOLPIX model supporting i-TTL flash control, with the highly accurate i-TTL flash system, the amount of light output is automatically controlled which will assist you in achieving high quality flash shots with great reliability.

This unit is compatible with all readily available AAA batteries.
