To get the most out of your battery life, this flash has an in-built cooling system so it won’t overheat. It will keep performing at its best even after extended periods of use. Keep rolling for longer without needing to replace the battery. Heat is suppressed in the flash head to reduce downtime between each take.
Use your flash remotely off the camera with the benefit of a radio controller which makes wireless shooting possible. You can get more creative by using your flash off the camera. It also makes it possible to set up multiple flashes to get light in from different angles. You won’t require a line of sight for triggering other flash units. Capable of 120 flashes in a single burst at 5-second intervals, the Nikon SB-5000 flash can control up to 6 groups in AF, totaling up to 18 SB-5000 remote flash units.
Through-the-lens metering means the intensity of light is measured through the lens instead of a separate measuring window. What this means is that your flash will know what the surrounding ambient light is set at to give your images the ideal exposure. This is perfect for events and weddings where there are a lot of people around and lights coming from different directions. The flash won’t offset the mood, rather it will complement the scene without overtaking.
Know exactly how far away your subject is with a zoom in the Nikon SB-5000 flash that tells you. The distance is accurately calculated to give you precision from any distance from 24 to 200mm. This helps your camera know how to focus in the given light conditions to give your images brightness and contrast balance.
With eight stops of light levels, from 1/1 to 1/256, the power controls are adjustable on this Nikon SB-5000 flash. This is great for when you only need a tiny bit of light. Some speedlites only give you 1/128 power options, so this Nikon flash has more capability.
