Designed to work with a variety of digital SLR cameras made by Nikon, this speedlight flash is a high-performance unit which is intended to be used as an alternative to the camera's built-in flash. Accordingly, it has considerably more power and controllability than the latter.

The extra power means much more depth-of-field flexibility in low-light conditions while the swivel head makes it much easier to arrange indirect lighting onto your subject when a suitable bounce surface is close at hand.

The unit may be used both on the camera's own hot shoe and off the camera in a variety of roles in more advanced wireless setups.

The package available on Amazon includes, in addition to the flash unit: the Zeikos Universal Soft Box Flash Diffuser, which (when attached to the flash) enlarges and softens its light; a bounce flash reflector which is compatible with most other flash units too; a set of high-capacity NiMH batteries with charger; and a camera and lens cleaning kit.

Users are virtually unanimous in their praise for a product they typically consider to be both "great" and "recommended".

The flash and accessories are intended for use with the following Nikon DSLRs: D40, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000, D5100, D7000, D300s, D3 & D3s.
