  • Perfect Flash

  • March 31, 2012
  • By: Steve

The SB-700 (which took over for the SB600) is an amazing flash to add your camera bag. Its tilt and rotate flash head (bounce), allows you to change your level of bounce for any occasion or shot. On flash adjustments are simple, and quick to make. The backlit LCD screen makes low light/night flash adjustments a breeze. Even after years of use, if you decide to upgrade to a larger (sized or optioned) flash, then the sb700 can be used as a slave flash to the sb900/910's wireless flash trigger. Great flash with endless possibilities.

  • Great flash

I've been doing photography for a few years now but had never taken the leap and bought a flash. Now that I have, I wish I had done so sooner. This allows more creative control and is really quite easy to use. Don't wait like I did, just go and get this flash.

  • Amazing Flash

  • November 16, 2011

This flash is the absolute best flash on the market. It has so many great features and is so powerful it will make all of your photos look great. All of the controls are in perfect places and its very easy to use. If you invest in a flash get the SB-700. I promise you won't be dissapointed.

I've been using this flash for shooting portraits, weddings, you name it and it's always come through for me. Recently bought a second cause I liked the first one so much. Easy to use, dependable and powerful. Highly recommended.

This flash is great. Thinking of getting an SB-910 then just take a look at the performance you get out of the SB-700. It may not have all the bells and whistles that the 910 has but it has all the ones you will use. And more importantly it will not shut down from extended use like the 900 or 910 (super annoying at weddings and responsable for the missing of many 'moments'). For a wedding or studio/portrait photographer this flash is perfect. I just wish that the diffuser didnt come off so easily (lost mine while shooting a convention within the first hour of use).

  • Excellent, even "supoib"

  • October 27, 2012

I literally just opened this flash last night and had so much fun with it that I fell asleep right after. So I'm writing this early the next morning! Easy setup, smooth mounting. I haven't read up on how to use this but, as I mentioned I just opened it and started using, I found it easy to get through and understand; all the primary things you want to look at are at the front and anything, which makes things less tedious. It gives good light even when the subject is a bit of a distance away. I like it's adjustability- I can move the head in practically every direction. There are several options and functions on this flash to take advantage of (I'm really excited to get cracking at them!). I used the flash on my camera's mount but also off via an extendable cord, just to increase my range of possibilities. You could go for pocket wizards or the like if you want a cordless external ability. I don't have studio flashes or anything, this is my first and only flash and it's great! (My solution to low light family photos!) If you can use this to it's potential you'll go a long way :] FYI: The photos I took with this Nikon SB-700 speedlite last night were/are awesome!
