The SB-700 Speedlight Shoe Mount Flash from Nikon is an on-camera flash designed for use with Nikon DSLR cameras that use the i-TTL metering system. It is compatible with DX and FX sensors and its power zoom head covers a 24-120mm range when used with an FX camera.
Youll be able to use the strobe directly on your camera via the hot shoe or wirelessly as a Commander or Remote. Using the flash as a Commander allows you it to take control over other Nikon Speedlights expanding your creative lighting options. As a Remote it can be controlled by another Speedlight or your cameras built-in flash. Its Quick Wireless Mode with A:B light ratios allows you to quickly adjust settings on multiple flash units -- giving you the ability to control two remote units in i-TTL mode.
It features a dot-matrix LCD control panel with an intuitive layout for easy operation. It derives power from AA batteries -- supporting rechargeable NiMH disposable Alkaline and disposable Lithium cells. Recycle time is a scant 2.5 seconds when using NiMH 3 seconds when using Alkaline.
