SB-300 AF Speedlight
Nikon SB-300 Speedlight is a solid performer at a great price and ideal size!
I own a Nikon 1 V1 and this Speedlight reminds me of the original SB-N5 Speedlight for that camera. Like it the SB-300 is small and will fit nicely in my Nikon camera bag at one end. It runs on 2 AAA batteries so unlike the SB-N5 you will need to keep a couple handy at all times. The SB-N5 is powered by the internal battery in the camera. Not so with the Nikon Coolpix P7800 which uses a smaller battery and thus requires external ones for its flash.

This Speedlight does really fit into your shirt pocket easily. I don't even know I'm carrying it till I need it. So far it has preformed well in various light. The first time I tried it I took 5 pictures of the same indoor scene using the 5 different (straight and bounce flash) angles to compare and was impressed with the results. However, I am not a professional photographer so I suggest trying it for yourself. I like it.

my SB300 experience
Absolutely loved my SB300 speed flash. All my pictures came out super crisp, and really brought new life into my photos. I was super excited how how much it helped my pictures blossom.
Unfortunately, Christmas night a year and a couple days after the flash had been purchased (no longer under warranty) it stopped working completely. Very disappointing, all my other Nikkon equipment has held up so well. I wouldn't recommend this to someone because I'm not sure how reliable it is now.
