New Entry-Level Flash Unit From Nikon - Nikon introduces a speedlight which is ideal for novice photographers.
Nikon introduces a new entry-level flash that is compatible with Nikon DSLRs and compacts equipped with an accessory shoe.
The Nikon SB-300 offers an easy and affordable way to explore the impact an external flash can have on the quality of images. With a guide number of 18/59 (m/ft at ISO 100), the flash can illuminate distant subjects even in low-light conditions, be used as a fill flash to highlight subtle subject details and soften shadow areas created by ambient lighting, or to compensate for strong backlight.
The flash head can be tilted up to 120° and support for Nikon's i-TTL flash control enables optimum automatic flash balance, and DSLR users can easily set slow sync, red-eye reduction and other flash modes from the camera body for natural-looking lighting.
The SB-300 comes with a soft pouch, features a thermal cutout function which prevents damage to the flash due to overheating during high-intensity firing and is powered by AAA-size batteries. The SB-300 Speedlight will be available from 29 August 2013 with an RRP of £139.99.
