Ideal exposure every time

Nikon’s precision i-TTL flash control

Optimized for use with Nikon's Creative Lighting System (CLS), the SB-700 Speedlight is equipped with Nikon’s precision i-TTL (Intelligent Through-The-Lens) flash control to deliver precise flash exposures and seamless fill-flash performance—even in challenging lighting situations. Immediately before the main flash goes off, the SB-700 fires a series of monitor pre-flashes, which convey Information about the scene's lighting to the camera. i-TTL then automatically balances the output of the Speedlight and the scene's ambient light.

Complete lighting control

Wireless commander mode

The SB-700 offers wireless Commander Mode to allow you complete control over compatible Creative Lighting System (CLS) products. The SB-700 controls up to 2 remote Speedlight groups and an unlimited number of compatible Speedlights. When used as a remote Speedlight, up to 3 groups can be selected. Four wireless channel options help manage wireless conflicts in multi-photographer environments.

Ready for any situation

Intuitive versatile lighting options

With its streamlined controls and intuitive menus, the SB-700 allows you to acces its full range of functionality with ease. Versatile auto power zoom coverage allows you to smoothly cover lenses as wide as 24mm and up to 120mm in FX-format. Using the simple slider switch on the back of the SB-700, you can optimize light quality by selecting from 3 light distribution patterns: Standard for general illumination, Center-weighted for portraits or Even, for groups or interiors. Automatically detects Nikon FX and DX formats and selects suitable light distribution angle. Automatically detects increases in flash head temperature and controls recycling time accordingly, thus preventing overheating. Automatically detects type of hard-type color compensation filter (fluorescent and incandescent) and automatically transmits filter information to camera for optimum white balance setting.
Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The SB-700 Is Indestructable! I am a professional photographer in San Antonio, TX and I often use my SB-700 flash for off camera flash (OCF). About a week ago I was photographing a family next to a river and I had my flash mounted to an OCF rig and 24" x 24" softbox and sandbagged. A strong gust of wind blew the rig (despite the sandbag) into the river! I rushed over and I was too late... I fished the rig out of the water and immediately pulled the batteries. This flash was totally waterlogged. I was so upset.. This was my 2nd flash in a year! The first flash was stolen along with ALL of my gear (contained in a bag). The LCD display looked like a little aquarium due to all of the water in it. I shook out what I could and let the flash sit by the window in the sun for a week. Just yesterday, I figured I would give it one last try before having to buy a 3rd one. I inspected the flash for water and when there was no sign of moisture I popped the batteries in and WOW! It turned on and the flash is fully operational! I was able to photograph a marriage proposal last night and it didn't give me any issues. I will highly recommend Nikon products to anyone I know! Your products prove to me over and over again that they are built to last and built for work. In a time where nothing lasts long you have created a line of products that stands the test of time and the abuse that photographers who work in the field put them through. I have always and will always use Nikon gear only! You have one happy customer here and I will always do what I can to bring you more business. Thanks for creating such an awesome line of kick butt products! February 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Flash, works PERFECTLY I had my doubts about flash coming from Canon, but WOW, this flash delivers. TTL is perfect exposure every time. Close or far, the flash knows how much power to apply and over the course of my first weekend shooting with it, I simply could not be happier. December 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great flash unit,read the instrutions first.. Hello,purchased this flash 2 months ago after reading alot of reviews. Was concerned about the battery door issues but took the plunge anyway. So far door is no problem,there is a button on the door for opening and closing.If you by pass the button you could have problems. Flash provided excellent light at a event i shot Sat,tried setting flash to manual but it washed out the picture.Even at 1/2 power it was a washout. Had camera in auto mode and program mode. Bouncing in manual rendered excellent results with a 12 ft ceiling in 1/2 power. Great flash. October 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Flash. I have had this flash for a couple of weeks and I am very pleased with the performance so far. It makes a huge difference to my indoor photography. I have mainly been involved in Nature Photography but now am focusing on Indoor/outdoor portrait. I am still playing with all the settings and possibilities. It is an excellent product, which I have no problem highly recommending to any serious photographer, professional, hobbyist, or otherwise. December 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Got to love the remote feature alone! Received as a gift for Christmas 2013. Awesome. The fill light that it provides is night and day from ordinary use of the pop-up flash. December 26, 2013

Answer: 
The D3100 built in flash is not CLS compatible. In order to do CLS on a D3100 you'll need a SU-800 or a CLS master capable flash (SB700, 900 or 910) unit on the D3100.

Answer: 
The section for this SB700 flash has a list of cameras that are compatible with this flash and the D90 is listed.
I personally dont know why they would not be compatible, the D90 specs says it is CLS supported.
You may want to check out the Support section on site for this flash or camera model.

I have a D80, with a bracket grip and SC-17 coiled remote cord that extends the hot shoe to the bracket. This worked for an older Speedlight and an N70. Will it work for the D80 and SB-700 and still include the i-TTL function or do I need to upgrade to the SC-28 or SC-29?

Answer: 
I found some additional information in Nikon's support section regarding my original question. It says:

Using the SC-17, SC-28 and SC-29 with i-TTL compatible cameras and Speedlights
When an SC-17, SC-28 or SC-29 cable is used for off-camera flash photography with i-TTL compatible cameras such as the D70 or newer DSLRs, correct exposure may not occur if using i-TTL Balanced fill-flash. It is recommended to select spot metering in order for the camera to use standard i-TTL flash metering instead. This will improve consistency of flash exposures when using off-camera flash photography.

Hi
I do not know this camera well, but looking in the specs , it does not say that the built in flash is also commander too,
I would say to ask the Service and Support here at Nikon site.
If it does command remote flash, I’m sure it would utilize all the TTL functions that Nikon has produced, not only manual mode...
hope this helps a little...

Answer: 
Never think someone should bare with you, we all started out knowing nothing...:)
Welcome to the Nikon family and photography.
On top of D3100 are two metal pieces, rails if you will, this is called the hotshoe...your flash on bottom has a metal piece that slides into the rails, slide the flash into rails gently, never force it in there and sometimes it feels like its stuck, just be gentle...slide flash in until it stops completely, and then turn the lock lever on flsh to the right to lock flash in place. turn on cam and tirn on flash, you should be good to go...
hope this helps...

I am considering the D5100 but wish to do macro photography sometimes. I realize that the R1 requires the SU800 to work on this camera, but I was wondering if there were other options for firing the R1 such as this flash. Then I could use it as flash sometimes as well as a commander other times. Do other flashes have this capability with this camera or does only the SU800 work?

I've read online that the D5100's on board flash could trigger the SB-700 to fire, as long as:

a) the SB-700 was placed in the SU-4 mode.
b) and both the D5100 and the SB-700 were placed into manual mode instead of TTL.

Is this true ir is this an urban legend?
Note: I've tried following these steps, but haven't been able to get the SB-700 to fire. Is it possible that my settings are off?

Answer: 
The flash must be in SU-4 mode, it doesnt matter if the camera is in manual mode or not as it is only using th4e flash to control the SB-700, the SB-700 has to be controlled manually. If you are having troubles firing it the first thing to do is to make sure you have line of sight and the receiver on the flash is facing the camera
