Our opinion:

The SB-700 has replaced the popular SB-600 speedlight.

The new SB-700 is compatible with Nikon DX and FX format SLRs, and the Nikon Creative Lighting System. It covers a greater focal range than its predecessor and is just as easy to use.

This speedlight enables you to bounce light of walls and ceilings, whilst still having i-TTL exposure. Don't worry about it being complicated - the camera will calculate correct exposure for you just the same as if you were using it the flash directly - but you have to allow for greater travelling distance of the light, of course. Still, the results of bounced flash are frequently more flattering and evenly illuminated than front-on flash - so it is well worth experimenting with.

We are also very impressed with the recycling times of the SB-700 - being able to shoot again after 2.5 seconds (with the right batteries) narrows the gap between studio flash and handheld speedlights.

The SB-700 comes with a very good range of accessories:
A flash soft case (that stores the flash in the ready-to-shoot position), incandescent (tungsten) and fluorescent plastic colour filters, a diffusion dome and stand.

Highly recommended ****
