Nikon SB-700 overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon SB-700 AF Speedlight Kit from B&H combines the powerful SB-700 flash unit with a Light Bouncer for more controlled and enhanced on-camera lighting and a set of four NiMH rechargeable batteries with a rapid charger for extended shooting times. Included is a Light Bouncer with gold and silver reflectors to produce a broad, soft light spread and to alter the color and quality of the flash output and a cinch strap to attach this and other accessories to your speedlight.

The SB-700 Speedlight is 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. You'll be able to use the speedlight 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 camera's built-in flash.

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 2.5 seconds when using NiMH batteries.

  • Nikon SB-700 AF Speedlight

    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.

  • Watson MX 4-Hour Rapid Charger and 4 MX AA NiMH Batteries

    Power up your photo equipment, flashlights, gaming devices, and other electronics via the Watson MX 4-Hour Rapid Charger with 4 MX AA NiMH Batteries. The 1.2V, 2550mAh nickel-metal hydride cells are pre-charged, rechargeable up to 500 times, and capable of retaining 85% of their capacity after 1 year in storage. The Rapid unit will charge 4 of them in about 310 minutes, or 2 in about 160 minutes. It's also compatible with optional AA NiCd batteries, or AAA NiMH or NiCd cells.

    The charger's integrated micro-controller ensures that each battery is charged to its full capacity, and an automatic cut-off feature prevents overcharging. Should the controller and automatic cut-off functions both fail, the safety guard timer will kick in to ensure that power is still shut off after 6 hours. Additionally, the charger features protection against short circuits and reverse polarity. Two charging channels are individually monitored, and two LED indicators display battery status. In order to enable use all over the world, the charger runs on 100-240 VAC power. As a bonus, its compact outlet prongs can fold inwards, making the unit more compact for storage and travel.

  • Vello Light Bouncer Kit for Portable Flashes

    This Vello Light Bouncer Kit for Portable Flashes spreads and redirects the light from a portable flash to soften the quality of light and distribute it over a wider area. No exposure compensation is necessary with automatic flashes, but operating distances will be somewhat reduced.

    The Light Bouncer can be used with slaves, or alone where low ceilings are not available, or where more direct but soft fill light is desired. It attaches to the flash head in seconds with the included touch-tab fasteners.

    The silver insert adds a specular look to highlights. The gold insert adds a warm tone to the scene, particularly useful for outdoor fill-flash. These inserts attach with touch-tab fasteners to the bounce surface of the Light Bouncer to further modify the light.

    Fits nearly any portable flash
    Lightweight and portable
    Attaches quickly and easily
    Includes gold and silver reflectors to enhance skin tones and other lighting scenarios

Nikon SB-700 reviews

SB-700 AF Speedlight Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very useful addition to your camera bag A solid performer for use as a Starter for the user with no experience with speedlights. A clear instruction manual easily augmented with Youtube videos allowed immediate use with good results that will no doubt only get better with practice. The kit component of the package provides additional tools to experiment and expand skills. A terrific addition to my Nikon D750 and the foundation for off-camera lighting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Flash This is a great flash. I had the SB600 but with the Nikon D810 I couldn't use all the functions but the SB700 is great and it works as a slave or master with my other flash and also off camera so I am very pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not the top of the line - but still acts like it. I love this speedlight. I bought the kit just because it was a cheaper way to get all the add ons then buying some of the things I wanted and it gave me some freebies. The diffusers are decent, nothing super duper but they are functional and you can use them without worrying about killing a super expensive piece of your kit. The SB-700 is the star of the show in this kit obviously and it functions reliably time and time again and works as a slave light to various commander mode Nikon bodies w/ cmdr modes on them as well as to other SB units with Cmdr mode. It works and does what it needs to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Speedlignt I use the light for candids and in an umbrella set up. It worked great...plenty of light. the kit was really not worth the extra money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon SB700 is well done! The built in bounce card came in really handy when shooting a party. Adjustments & overall performance was as advertised. Also worked great as a master driving my older Nikon flash. The accessories were also great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile speedlight I purchased the SB700 to replace my venerable Nissan 622. I hemmed and hawed about getting such a fancy flash, I mean who needs who the fancy remote flash stuff right? I just wanted a flash to bung on top of camera. I read so many reviews about speedlights that I went to sleep each night counting guide numbers. As I'm writing this review you can correctly guess I finally weakened and got the SB700. I'm so glad I did. It's amazing what I can now do with this flash and the different moods I can set for my photos by placing it there, or there or how about over there? Recycle times are fantastic with Ni-Mh batteries and its moderately quiet with the focus unit having a soft brr brr as it adjusts focus, not much capacitor whine either. The included diffuser dome and gels are a thoughtful and welcome inclusion as is the storage case. Easy enough to use but those with sausage fingers may find pressing the unlock button to move the power switch to remote or master a bit of a finangle. Please stop me buying another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great strobe For Nikon cameras this is a great on camera strobe. Multi functions that relate to the features within the D800 family. So far I have seen zero negative events or functions, battery use is very good - lots of flashes per set.
Date published: 2016-04-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flash Great recovery time. Only had one shot that the flash did not recover and flash. Easy to use. Shot a banquet and results were great.
