Nikon SB-700 Speedlight Flash
For the size, this flash is powerful. The auto zoom head has coverage for focal lengths ranging from 24-120mm on full frame cameras, which can be extended down to cover lenses as wide as 12mm with the help of the built-in wide-angle diffusion panel. The light's distribution angle will adjust automatically for crop frame sensor cameras. The SB-700 has a fully swiveling head, a high-speed/strobo mode for action and outdoor work, and a distance range of up to 66'. The recycling time on this flash is 2.5-3.5 seconds and cannot be made any quicker with the help of an external battery pack (see notes) – so this flash might not be the best option if recycling time is paramount (see our strobe collection for the fastest-recycling lighting options). The SB-700 is ideal for beginner portrait photographers, events, and traveling.
