Nikon SB-5000

Brilliant and versatile flash for both in-studio and outdoor use. This is the first Nikon Speedlight with radio control. Radio signals allow a working distance of up to 30 meters. This allows you to create complex lighting schemes with flash locations both on and off the camera. The Nikon SB-5000 is also equipped with a new cooling system so you can take over 100 exposures in a row with full flash output.

Key features

  • For DX and FX format sensors
  • Radio-controlled flash
  • Incomparable light output
  • New cooling system
  • Intuitive control
  • Compact design
  • Light weight

Professional flash

Management i-TTL (intelligent internal flash metering) is fully compatible with digital SLR FX format and DX. Combined with the WR-R10 remove control, you can use light patterns with one or more flash. The flash can be used attached to the camera's accessory shoe, set as a wireless controller, or used as a remote flash unit in the Nikon Creative Lighting System. Wireless radio control does not require mutual visibility between the Master flash and the Remote flash.

Transparent operation and compact design

The flash has a guide number of 34.5 and covers a focal range of 24-200mm (14mm when using the built-in wide panel). A reflective bounce card and diffusion dome are also included in the supplied accessories. While not included, colour filters can be bought separately, granting the Nikon Speedlight SB-5000 limitless possibilities.

The Nikon Speedlight SB-5000's clear and intuitive controls will save you time. Three illumination patterns give you total control over scene lighting for very specific shooting conditions. The dashboard clearly displays all relevant information. Alternatively, you can tilt the flash head downward at an angle of 7° and tilt upwards at an angle of up to 90°. The camera also enables horizontal rotation of up to 180°, not to mention its light weight of just 420g.

More Specifications

Nikon’s beginnings date back to 1917 in Japan. At first, the company mainly produced lenses - telescopes, binoculars, microscopes and other small, optical equipment. Soon the company expanded its portfolio, producing photographic lenses under the Nikkor brand.

In the field of cameras, particularly among professionals, Nikon quickly gained a reputation as a top manufacturer, which continues today. Its cameras were even included in the equipment of American spacecraft. Nikon designed and produced the legendary Nikon SP 1957, regarded by many as the best camera of all time.
