Nikon SB-300 Overview

The Nikon SB-300 AF Speedlight is a lightweight on-camera flash that is compatible with Nikon cameras featuring i-TTL support. The SB-300 has a guide number of 59' at ISO 100 and a coverage of a 27mm lens with FX-format cameras. Additionally, the flash has a distance range of 2-66'.

The SB-300 ensures proper exposure and color balance with i-TTL metering. When used with cameras featuring Nikon's Creative Lighting System you can access advanced controls like rear-curtain sync and fill flash.

Bouncing light off a ceiling or wall is made possible with a 120° tilting head. This provides soft, even light on your subject. For security during operation, the flash will click into position at 120°, 90°, 75°, 60°, and when facing directly ahead. The flash also offers slow, first and second curtain sync for more creative control over your light.

Weighing only 3.4 oz, its compact design makes traveling with this flash easy. The SB-300 operates on two AAA batteries which will provide a recycle time between 3.5-30 seconds and it comes with the Nikon SS-DC1 Soft Case for storage.

question

Will this flash work with rapid shutter speed for sports photography on a D3200?
Asked by: Anonymous
The recycle time on the Nikon SB-300 Speedlight is about 4 seconds so I would not recommend it for sports. The SB-700 would be a better option because it has a recycle time of about 2.5 to 3.5 seconds. Please see the following link:http://bhpho.to/JAjW91The best option would be the SB-910 flash in combination with the Quantum Turbo battery. This would reduce your recycle time to 1 second or less. Please see the following links: http://bhpho.to/18m0Xddhttp://bhpho.to/1l5ayuJAnd you will need this cable:http://bhpho.to/1av1xXq
