SB-300

A compact and lightweight Speedlight with bounce flash capability

Key Features

Bouncing the light for beautiful indoor images

Pictures can appear very different and achieve various expressions depending on how you manipulate the light. But lighting a shot is not at all difficult with the SB-300 Speedlight. Its flash head can be set up to 120 degrees upward allowing you to bounce light off ceiling or wall to endow a softer, more natural look to your subject. You can easily control the lighting to capture a beautiful indoor portrait creatively.

Compatible with readily available AAA-size batteries
