Nikon SB-700 Starts Shipping in Japan Nov 26

Nikon SB-700 Flash

The Nikon SB-700 flashgun, first announced last Sep 15, will be available starting November 26, 2010 in Japan. Tokyo price is ¥44,100 with tax, or about US$528; the announced price for the US market was $330.

Nikon says the SB-700 incorporates functions inherited from the more expensive SB-900, such as the Master function, in a smaller size comparable to the SB-600.

Nikon says the SB-700 offers the following key features:

  • LCD and layout of controls designed for easy and intuitive operation
  • Multi-step auto zoom covers wide 24-120 mm zoom range
  • Three illumination patterns – standard, center-weighted and even – available to match every shooting environment
  • Automatically detects Nikon FX and Nikon DX formats and selects suitable light distribution angle
  • Short recycling time
  • AF-assist illumination for multi-point AF, with wide 24-135 mm focal range
  • Quick wireless control mode allows control of remote flash unit groups A and B flash output level ratios
  • Firmware updates via Nikon digital SLR cameras
  • Automatically delays recycling time if temperature of flash head rises in order to avoid deterioration of flash head
  • Automatically detects type of hard-type color compensation filter (fluorescent and incandescent) and automatically transmits filter information to camera for optimum white balance setting
  • Optional Water Guards WG-AS1 (for D3 series), WG-AS2 (for D300 series) and WG-AS3 (for D700) protect camera’s accessory shoe contact when SB-700 is mounted on a Nikon digital SLR camera
