Nikon SB-700 overview

  • 1Description

With a rated guide number of 92' at ISO 100 and 35mm, the SB-700 AF Speedlight from Nikon is a moderately compact flash unit packed with features for high-performance on-camera lighting capabilities. The flash is compatible with the i-TTL system for automatic metering with both FX- and DX-format cameras and is optimized for use with Nikon's Creative Lighting System for complete control over your lighting setup. Additionally, the auto zoom head has a coverage range of 24-120mm with FX-format cameras which can be extended down to 12mm with the use of the built-in wide-angle diffusion panel.

Complete bounce and swivel functionality is available for working in a variety of shooting situations. This allows users to tilt down to -7° and up to 90° as well as rotate left or right 180° for complete 360° coverage. Also, the SB-700 has three different illumination patterns, standard, even, and center-weighted, which help shape the light output for your specific needs. For wireless master TTL functionality, the speedlight utilizes a Commander Mode. In this mode users can access Advanced Wireless Lighting settings for controlling multiple off-camera flashes that can be set up in two groups (A, B) and one of four channels. The SB-700 also has a quick wireless control A:B ratio setting for quickly setting up and controlling multiple remote flashes.

Many other abilities are packed into this unit, including a stroboscopic repeating flash mode that can be set from 1-100 Hz. The SB-700 also has slow, Auto FP high-speed, first, and second curtain sync modes for achieving the desired creative look in your image. There are even red-eye reduction and red-eye reduction slow sync settings available. The flash itself is mounted to the camera or stand via a locking hot shoe and is powered by four AA batteries. And, depending on the type of battery used and the power setting, users can expect a recycle time of 2.5-3.5 seconds.

Included with the SB-700 AF Speedlight are a variety of useful tools and accessories. First, built into the flash alongside the wide-angle diffusion panel is a white slide-out bounce card for bouncing some light directly to the subject and creating catch lights. Also, there is a diffusion dome for softening the output of the flash and fluorescent and incandescent color correction filters for balancing the flash to ambient light. All of this, along with a stand, is packaged in the SS-700 Soft Case, designed specifically for the flash and accessories.

Nikon SB-700 reviews

SB-700 AF Speedlight is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 872.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brightly shining Nikon product I use this as part of a portable portraiture and events lighting setup, paired with a set of PocketWizard TT5 Transceivers to broadcast shot signals in i-TTL with definite fidelity. With that said, as a part of the Nikon Creative Lighting System this light operates highly well as a standalone product, with no transmitters or receivers required when used with other Nikon CLS lights. Oftentimes when I travel or take my camera abroad, I have found this compact speedlight to pack as much punch as possibly need and a little more. Included flash diffuser and gels are indispensable, and can be used to great effect with a little practice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High performance - low price This flash is a real bargain considering the alternatives in the Nikon family. It has many of the new features of the SB-900 and some of the functions that you would miss in the SB-600. Since I use it in combination with an SB-600, I appreciate the possibility to being able to run the SB-700 in commander mode (master) for wireless control of my SB-600. Also the included color filters and the reflex card is making a big difference between the SB-700 and SB-600. The only thing I miss, though, is the possibility to have an external power source connected to the SB-700. This is the reason why I didn't give it five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had done it sooner. Inspired by a noised out beautiful shot of my niece i decided i must have a flash and well i got this. This is easy to use. I'm a beginner and there is plenty you can learn in weekend of reading and playing. If you are on the fence as a beginner to flash, get one. I don't really like the release button to tilt and pan. Just not that smooth to me. I am comparing to nothing so keep that in mind. Functionally works fine but not very refined. I got some eneloop batteries that worked well and lasted through my play date with the new electronic. All I can say is I wish I had gotten this sooner I missed out so buy now if you want my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Very intuitive menu display. Love the standard incadescent/fluoresecent filters come with the package. and the flash automatically recongnize it and adjust the white balance accordingly and precisely! the 7 degree downward tilt should be very useful for macro work but I haven't yet attempted it though. Although the power is slightly less compared to SB600 but it is not a problem for me, and I don't quite enjoy the menu of SB600 anyways. Sizewise it is just alright, very solid build and I am quite satisfied with the photos I got using the flash. B&H offers the cheapest SB700 you can get anywhere, it is $399 MSRP in canada so definitely a good buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Speedlights These Nikon SB-700 Speedlight flashes are a joy to work with as a professional photographer, We needed two new working flash units A.S.A.P. with two big wedding's coming up this weekend in October, 2014 I have trusted B & H Photo for many years. Outstanding Sales Service and Selection, The price was great, both units were in stock, and of course delivery was free. The flash units did arrive and were put to work the very next day super powerful, not to heavy, easy to use. We also plain to buy two more flashes soon and we will be going with the Nikon SB-910 to round out our flash equipment. And of course they will be coming from the B & H Superstore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SB-700 Speedlight Shoe Mount Flash by Ni This is my first off-camera flash. I don't know much about flash photography yet, but the handful of pics I've tried so far are an incredible step up from the popup or no flash at all. Regarding the product, I find it very intuitive so far. I know I have a bit to learn about using the product, but I was able to get up and running with minimal consultation with the manual. I thought the weight of the product might be an issue, but it balances nicely on my D90. The only issue I need to conquer is battery usage. I'm using rechargeables now, but I see where this would not last a professional gig. Alas, I'm exploring power supply options...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power Shoe I am new to DSLR photography and tried to track down a sb800. (if you find one way to expensive) Which is supposed to be the best out there. I decided on the sb700. because it offered more versatility then the 600. The sb900 is way to big and I did not want to deal with the auto shut off when it gets hot. I do all kinds of shooting and i find the sb700 covers all the bases. its fast enough strong enough and is not that heavy. I would recommend this speedlight to anyone. It works great as a slave/master. I used it consistently one day and never over heated. THe only downside I wish there were more instructional books on this speedlight
