About this item

High performance versatile speedlight brings simplicity to on-camera, remote and multiple flash photography.


Portable, Versatile Speedlight Unit
i-TTL Speedlight optimized for use with Nikon's Creative Lighting System (CLS).

Complete Flash Head Positioning Freedom
Bounce 90° up and 7° down with 360° rotation, elevating creative lighting freedom.

Wireless Flash Control
Wireless Commander Mode controls up to two remote Speedlight groups and an unlimited number of compatible Speedlights. When used as a remote speedlight, up to three groups can be selected. Four wireless channel options help manage wireless conflicts in multi-photographer environments.

Choose From 3 Light Distribution Patterns
Using the simple slider switch on the back of the SB-700, you can optimize light quality by selecting Standard for general illumination, Center-weighted for portraits, or Even for groups or interiors.

Color Filter Identification
Automatically identifies mounted hard type color filters and adjusts camera white-balance.*

Automatic Format Identification
Automatically senses the FX or DX-format camera in use and optimizes light distribution.

Firmware Updating
Allows uploading of performance enhancement developments.*

Nikon’s Precision i-TTL Flash Control
Delivers precise flash exposures and seamless fill-flash performance—even in challenging lighting situations.

Hot Shoe and Wireless Operation
Use on-camera, as a wireless master, commander or remote light source.

Versatile Auto Power Zoom Coverage
Smoothly covers lenses as wide as 24mm and up to 120mm in FX-format.

Streamlined Controls and Menus
Convenient Rotary Select Dial sets key functions quickly and a prominent Master and Remote control switch simplifies wireless operation.

Flash Tube Overheat Protection
To prevent overheating, flash recycle time increases when SB-700 detects heat build-up.

Flash Value (FV) Lock
Locks in a specific flash output on the main subject, regardless of aperture, composition or the lens’ zoom position.*
