This kit features a Nikon d700, 24-70mm f/2.8G Lens & SB-700 Speedlight. This kit is perfect for the amateur wedding photographer looking to increase their production value or for the working professional as a backup kit.
The Nikon D700 DSLR is a 12 megapixel, full frame body capable of producing stunning images in a variety of shooting conditions. Available for rental today at Camera Hire, continuous shooting up to 5fps can be achieved normally, or up to 8fps if the additional Nikon battery grip ( MB – D10 ) is used. With a large viewfinder and tactile ergonomic controls the Nikon D700 allows uninterrupted control over shooting. This was Nikon’s first full-frame DSLR in a compact body, sharing the legendary FX sensor initially introduced with the D3. With Nikon’s 51 point auto-focus system, as found across all the top level Nikon bodies the camera provides excellent focus acquisition, even in low lighting conditions.
The Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 G hire lens is an excellent mid-range zoom, with a constant f/2.8 aperture and high image quality across the entire zoom range. The Nikon 24-70mm lens features a rugged build, designed to withstand the often adverse working conditions of photographers. For users of both FX and DX Nikon camera bodies, this hire lens provides an excellent midrange to short telephoto solution, and covers the mid range of the Nikon 2.8 zoom trifecta ( 14 – 24mm f2.8, and 70-200 f2.8 VR II ).
The Nikon SB-700 is a powerful speedlight, with a range of excellent features and intuitive controls available for rental at Camera Hire. The zoom range covered by the flash is 24-120mm, with the SB-700 able to detect whether the camera being used is DX or FX format and suitably adjust it’s light distribution. As a fully functioning part of the Nikon Creative Lighting System ( CLS ) this speedlight can be triggered wirelessly on it’s own or in groups with various levels of output all via Nikon DSLR cameras. When using colour compensation filters on the flash head, the SB700 will automatically detect this to ensure the white balance setting is optimum.
