The Nikon SB-300 Speedlight Flashgun is a versatile, easy-to-use entry-level Speedlight for controlling the quality and direction of light. This portable lighting accessory provides more power than a built-in flash and offers a guide number 18 meters (at ISO 100). The SB-300 head can be tilted 120-degrees which enables you to "bounce" the flash off the ceilings to soften shadows, offering more of a flattering glow for portraits. The Nikon SB-300 Speedlight flashgun is a great way to go beyond the limitations of the camera's built-in flash, the SB-300 is ideal for novice photographers who want to add a creative touch to images. Compatible with Nikon D-SLRs and Coolpix cameras equipped with an accessory shoe.
