Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Product I required a TTL flash for indoor shots with my D750 Nikon camera. Using the tungsten coloured filter and the diffuser that came with the flash and using 75 degree ceiling bounce has resulted in photographs with excellent colour balance and exposure. An added benefit is the automatic zoom function - when I change lenses, the flash automatically adjusts for the new angle of coverage. I am very happy with this purchase 16 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth every penny ! Forget about buying the cheaper Speedlight models they are not a patch on this. Works perfectly with any Nikon body/lens combination 15 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Well Integrates well with a Nikon D7100 both on the camera and remote. Easy to set up and use. 16 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Much better than the SB600 it replaced So far so good the bounce flash seems to work well with portraits and seems to give a more even lighting effect. So far so good. 26 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikon SB700 Speedlight Haven't used this flashgun much yet but the shots taken look great and the operation of the product is top quality, high tech and easy to use. 13 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A high quality professional flash Works perfectly with my Nikon D3200. I bought it to help me take better photographs of my guitars and it gives me all the flexibility I need. Very glad I went for the Nikon SB-700 Speedlight Flash instead of a cheaper non-Nikon option. 07 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best flash I've owned by far I would have loved to justify the cost (and bulk) of the Nikon pro flash with even more power and strobe flash. However, this is more than powerful enough for most situations. It synchs up to 1/4000 of a second with my camera. It works like a charm off camera and combines with the pop-up flash of my D7100 to offer a wide variety of lighting options. And the camera software works a treat with this flash for varying lighting using TTL exposure settings. Very easy to setup. The bounce card and the diffuser work well on bounce flash. 10 November 2015
