The Nikon WG-AS2 Water Guard is designed to maintain the D300's high level of dust and water protection, when used in combination with the SB-900 Speedlight flash unit. The WG-AS2 clips onto the flash unit's foot, creating a shield against dust and water.

If the information you requested is not available in the technical specifications of the D300s, then the information is not made available to the public. We regret that many specific technical specifications cannot be made available to the public as the fall under the umbrella of company trade secrets.
