NIKON SB-5000 AF SPEEDLIGHT FEATURES

  • Light without limits. New radio controlled communication
    The SB-5000 Speedlight introduces powerful radio control Advanced Wireless Lighting (AWL) communication to Nikon's innovative Creative Lighting System for exciting lighting possibilities. When used with a compatible Z series mirrorless camera** or Nikon DSLR*** with the optional WR-A10 (Wireless Remote Adapter) when attached to D5 and WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller (transceiver) (requires firmware version 3.0 or later), you can control up to 6 groups (A/B/C/D/E/F) of SB-5000 Speedlight behind obstacles, around corners, in bright sunlight - even in different rooms - up to 98 feet away. Of course, the SB-5000 Speedlight also integrates seamlessly with Nikon's optical wireless Speedlights and cameras.

  • Nonstop performance. World's first hot-shoe mount flash cooling system
    For studio, wedding, event and action photographers, continuous shooting is the name of the game. The SB-5000 Speedlight can handle more than 100 consecutive firings at full output without overheating, thanks to an innovative built-in cooling system and a brilliant heat-shedding design. For TTL shooters, this means a new level of lighting control while capturing decisive moments. Great shots don't wait for a flash to be ready, and neither should you.

  • Reimagined design. Smaller and easier to operate
    Designed for photographers who rely on portable lighting, the SB-5000 Speedlight is smaller and easier to use. It has a smaller footprint and provides streamlined access to frequently used functions such as Flash Mode, Zoom Head Position and Flash Compensation Value. Like a DSLR camera, the SB-5000 Speedlight has an INFO button for quick access to your favorite settings. For more fluid operation when using radio control, you can adjust settings right from a compatible camera's*** menu.

  • Maximum compatibility. Part of the Nikon Creative Lighting System
    In addition to the new radio control with compatible cameras, you can use the SB-5000 Speedlight on-camera as a Master Flash to control other remote Speedlights (up to 3 Groups: A/B/C and 4 channels), or use it off-camera wirelessly as a remote flash controlled by either your camera's built-in flash (compatible cameras), another Speedlight or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander. You can even mix optical wireless control (Groups A/B/C) with radio control (Groups D/E/F). For studio photographers, the SB-5000 Speedlight is equipped with Unified Flash Control and can be controlled from a personal computer using the optional Camera Control Pro 2 (Version 2.23 or later) software.
