Nikon SB-700 AF Speedlight
4.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Sep 12, 2011

The SB-700 AF Speedlight is a high-end flash unit from the Nikon company. Utilizing a lightweight, portable design, this model offers 360-degree lateral rotation for a wide variety of lighting applications. Three light distribution patterns are available that include "Standard" for normal low-light image capture, "Center-weighted" for potraits, and "Even" for multiple subjects and interior landscapes. Automatic format identification helps to sense whether the users camera is in FX or DX mode to apply a pre-configuration amount of flash, while a similarly-functioning color filter is available to identify hard color types and adjust white balance accordingly. Wireless flash control enables the SB-700 to be used as a remote speedlight with compatibility for up to three groups with four-channel outputting to minimize signal discrepancy in multi-camera scenarios. The unit also features "Auto Power Zoom Coverage" for versatile support of many lens types ranging from 24 to 120 millimeters. Rotary dial selection provides ... PROS: (1) ratio shooting is very helpful, balances main/key/hair lights well (2) fast recycle time, can shoot shots in reasonably rapid succession (3) command dial makes scrolling through menus is quick and easy (4) dedicated buttons are comfortable to work with (5) snap-on gel filters go on securely, easy to attach/detach ... CONS: (1) slightly heavier and bulkier than the Nikon SB-600

5 Star Review   By JI Photography on Adorama - Nov 8, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

Needed another flash for off camera lighting... I understand how to use it so I have no problems.. the only flaw (imo) I feel this flash has is that you can only use AA batteries to power it. Lucky fo me I have a lot of rechargeable batteries when I do wedding and corporate events.

Excellent lighting system
5 Star Review   By Mitch on Adorama - Sep 30, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

It worked so well I bought a second. I could not ask for a more affordable portable lighting system. I use it with my D90. The only bad shots I've taken with it are the ones I've taken on purpose that shows people the differences in adjusting the positioning of light on subject matter. Very good system for the price.

5 Star Review   By RobPortil on Adorama - Sep 24, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

Works great. It really makes a difference when photographing people. Sometimes just using the supplied diffuser makes a marvelous difference, but being able to bounce the light off an adjoining wall creates a completely different feel and far better light.

Not strong enough
3 Star Review   By KC on Adorama - Sep 9, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

I bought this to do a bit of location stuff. I find if you want to use it for more than fill it doesn't have enough power. For example when using it outside it isn't strong enough to be the source in sunlight, and use the sunlight as fill so am a pretty disappointed. Better off to have bought the 900 just incase there is that occasion where you do need more power rather than trying to work around the limitations of your weak flash.

Speedlight Does It All
4 Star Review   By Marc on Adorama - Jul 23, 2013    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

Needing a companion to my SB-600 that would allow me to utilize the Nikon CLS System, this Flash allows me to now set up an easy to use multiple Speedlight array without having to deal with large studio strobes. The SB-700's menu system is far superior to the SB600 as it's easier to navigate, and has all the basic functions one needs such as: Master, Slave and On Camera. The only negative is the LCD Screen itself… it could be more legible and brighter. Even with that in mind, the SB-700 is a Speedlight that will be in my kit wherever I shoot.

This is a great flash and I especially love that it can be a slave to the on camera flash of my D7000. The menus could be a little more user friendly but that is really my only complaint so just plan on reading the manual to get the basics.

So far so good!
5 Star Review   By Kev on Adorama - Apr 16, 2012    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

I'm pretty new to flash photography, so didn't know about flashes much. This flash made it really easy for me to understand, very easy to use the TTL mode, manual, remote and master modes.

Have used this flash now for a couple weddings and portrait sessions. I like its desing better than the Sb-800 and over all use as well. It's a nice light and it communicates well wirelessly.

Very Good, Lots To Learn
4 Star Review   By IdahoBaird on Adorama - Feb 6, 2012    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

I use this SB 700 on a Nikon D90. They are well matched. This flash has a LOT of features for a novice to learn about but mastery is not essential to achieve pleasing results. With the included diffuser I took nice portraits Day 1. There are off-brand fla

When I started in photography in the early 1960's, Press 25 and number 40 flash bulbs were the standard. My first electronic strobe light was a Graflex Strobeflash IV. It had a 15-pound battery pack you slung over your shoulder, a flash head with a 5-inch

I needed a quality flash after getting shadows from my lens using the pop-up flash. By staying with Nikon, I know the flash would be forward compatible with Nikons' new cameras that will be introduced in 2012. The flash is very easy to use. The bounce fla

This isn't the SB-900 for sure but it wasn't meant to be. This little flash is all most people will need. It's output is good and the price is right. We added some Rogue bounce cards to ours and they work well for most purposes. If you plan to light large

I bought this to round out my CLS capabilities. After using it casually, I realized that it doesn't have an AUTO exposure setting, like my SB800, or SB80dx, or even Vivitar 285. Strictly Nikon CLS. Other than that, it's a great unit, with very much improv

2 Star Review   By Tom on Adorama - Oct 17, 2011    ( See more reviews from Adorama )

Ok flash for the most part until the battery door breaks. Nikon really booted it with this silly door redesign. I use this as a carry-around flash if I am not taking a full sized bag to walk around. Pairs nicely with the SB-900 as a fill or accent light.

I like the features on this flash. My main flash is a SB800. I also have a SB600. I needed to get a flash while my 800 was being repaired. The 700 was a good replace ment with the xception of the wireless function. I was very unreliable, if you are buying
