Nikon SB-30 Speedligh
Nikon have announced the introduction of the Nikon SB-30 Speedlight.

The new Nikon SB-30 houses a variety of flash functions within its compact body, and is designed for users of Nikon SLRs that do not have a built-in Speedlight who want a highly portable secondary Speedlight.

The SB-30 offers close-up shooting, a built-in wide flash adapter that offers coverage for a 17mm wideangle lens, TTL wireless slave flash capability, and an infrared remote commander. Flash output level compensation (1/2EV) is also available for non-TTL auto flash mode and manual flash mode.

The SB-30s TTL wireless slave flash function works with COOLPIX digital cameras to double or triple the effective flash shooting distance.

The Nikon SB-30 is a significant addition to the Nikon Speedlight lineup, and offers photographers enhanced flash shooting flexibility for a broad range of applications.
