Described as being an affordable electronic flash for Nikon cameras, the SB-300 Speedlight covers a wide-angle 18 mm in DX-format and operates via simple on-camera controls, making it easy for beginner photographers to use light to their advantage.
The SB-300 tilts up 120 degrees, allowing for the use of creative bounce flash to soften shadows and diffuse the flash, resulting in more flattering portraits and even exposures.
For added convenience, firmware is upgradable through supporting DSLRs.
The SB-300 is powered by two AAA batteries.
The flash features thermal cut-out protection to prevent overheating when capturing multiple flash images in succession.
The SB-300 AF Speedlight is scheduled to be available in late August at an MSRP of $159.95.
