Tiny but Mighty

General, B&H Photo
31 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I own a couple of SB-800 and an SB-900 but they are rather bulky when you just want to wander around taking photographs. The SB-300 AF Speedlight provides an answer. For casual work, it is ideal. The only drawback is it doesn't work with Nikon's CLS system for when you want to set up something a little more involved. But that isn't why I bought it, was it?
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Lightweight

Nice product

  • Excerpt: It worked very well in night pictures, the buit-in flash did not deliver good images in night time, so I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

A Game Changer!

Flash Novice, B&H Photo
17 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Really good! I am new to flash photography so opted for a smaller speed light. Results to date are extremely positive. A game changer in terms of photographic quality and I am still learning. Already know that I'll upgrade in a year or so when I have more experience under my belt.

A big light in a small package

Curtis, B&H Photo
13 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I was looking for a small flash to use with my Nikon Df that would fit in my pocket and be easy to carry. The SB-300 is a good compromise. I have an SB-800 and SB-600 so I knew what I was trading off to get such a small flash. I have been pleased with the result and find I carry it more often when I am doing spontaneous work.

big things in small packages

photogrl41, B&H Photo
3 March 2014
  • Excerpt: This little guy puts out as much power as any full size flash. I love the fact that it is so light. The only con is that it only shoots in I - ttl mode.. It's a great buy.

Very light and compact

Billy, B&H Photo
14 February 2014
  • Excerpt: This flash is very light and compact and serves as substitute for the built-in flash of your camera. Tested it and the result is not as efficient as the pro grade SB910. If you are looking for a top-grade, heavy, bulky, or pro-level strobe, then go for the SB910. The two-AAA batt source are not an issue but make sure you have enough back up. The flash is perfect to use on sunny pictorial day to reduce shadow formations of objects.

Does as advertised

Andy8400, B&H Photo
1 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Since the Nikon Df has no flash, this addition was a no-brainer. I already owned an SB-800 but it is heavy and cumbersome and is used only when its advantages are required.

Not what I expected

Tara B., B&H Photo
21 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I ordered this online without looking it in person first. Smaller and less powerful and wasn't what I was looking for. It might work for others, depending on needs, but it didn't fit my needs. I ended up returning it and B&H made it super easy. For that, at 3 stars, minus two because it wasn't what I wanted. I went to B&H to get the right flash in person.

Perfect for the Nikon Df

Gman, B&H Photo
20 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I was looking for a small strobe to sit atop the Df and internet searches suggested an SB400. Well, that one has been discontinued and the remaining few have taken off in price. So, I tried its successor with the AAA batteries rather than AAs. Frankly, with the Df, I don't need a flash that often, so the AAA batteries equal less weight and a more compact size. It easily fits the front pouch of a Billingham L2 bag.
