The Nikon SB-N7 Speedlight flash is a photographic vocabulary builder. What do we mean by that? Well, while the Nikon 1 V1 and V2 have powerful low-light performance, there are situations where any camera could benefit from some light "shaping." Your artistic choices will expand when you put this little workhorse onto the camera's accessory port. It has an expanded tilt range — 120° vertically, from straight-out horizontal to aiming at the wall behind you. And it also has a built-in wide panel that will expand your fill-light coverage from side to side. Diffused, supportive light like this can make the difference between a shot that feels flat and a shot that jumps from the screen or the page.

The Nikon SB-N7 is powered by readily available "AAA" batteries. And as you'd expect, the SB-N5 communicates seamlessly with your camera's electronics to adjust itself for the perfect exposure.

Product Research


Overview: The Nikon Speedlight SB-N7 is an external flash unit designed to be used with the Nikon 1 interchangeable lens digital cameras with a multi-accessory port, including the Nikon V1 and V2 models. It can be used as i-TTL auto flash or manual flash.

Power Requirements: The SB-N7 is powered by two "AAA" batteries (not included). You can use Alkaline or Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) batteries.

Bounce Flash: The flash head tilts up to 120° with click-stops at 0°, 60°, 75°, 90°, and 120°.

Wide-Flash Adapter: The SB-N7 comes with a clear plastic wide-flash adapter, which increases the angle of illumination. With the adapter in place, the flash covers the field of view of a 6.7mm lens. When not in use, the adapter can be stored on the flash head below the flash window.

Flash Exposure Control: The SB-N7 can operate in the following modes using camera controls: Fill Flash (Front-curtain Sync), Front-curtain Slow-sync, Rear-curtain sync, Rear-curtain Slow-sync, and Flash compensation.
