The Nikon SB300 Speedlite is a very compact, lightweight flashgun with bounce feature. Ideal for location shooting or travel photography. This will allow for more control and flexability over the standard pop up flash contained within the camera.


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.

  • *Advanced Wireless Lighting is not supported.

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.
