New SB-700

Aiyoh, bought my SB-600, now come the SB-700. Poison really... USA is selling at USD330, roughly RM1,023.00.
A compact-sized Speedlight offering a wide variety of functions for digital-SLR camera users of any skill level!

Tokyo - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the Speedlight SB-700, a compact-sized, easy-to-use Speedlight offering multiple functions.

While the majority of digital-SLR cameras are equipped with a built-in flash, user creativity and expression is strictly limited as these built-in flashes are only able to light a subject from a single side and angle. While external flash units are tools for increasing creativity by maximising lighting possibilities, many users still find them difficult to use and think of it only as a way to capture images of dark or dimly scenes.

To allow users who are inexperienced with the use of external flash units to enjoy the benefits of more creative lighting, Nikon has developed the easy-to-use SB-700. The new SB-700 incorporates functions inherited from the SB-900, which has been extremely well received by professional and advanced amateur digital-SLR camera users. Smaller than the SB-600, the multi-functional SB-700 is much easier to use especially for beginners. As a result, the SB-700 is able to respond to the wide-ranging needs of Nikon digital-SLR camera users, who not only possess a broad range of skills, but also seek to increase their individual power of expression through photographs that truly accentuate light.
