Great everyday flash

Wireless remote shooting is possible with the Nikon SB-5000 flash. It’s also compatible with standard AA batteries, so it's easy to always have spares ready to go on-hand. The built-in diffuser and bounce card disperses light beautifully to achieve soft effects ideal for portraiture. Combatting various light conditions, this lens meets the requirements of photojournalists and studio photographers.

Cooling system takes on overheating

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.

Radio controller for wireless shooting

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

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.

Zoom range of 24-200mm

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.

Adjustable power controls

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.

What is the benefit of the speedlight?

Take the light into your own hands by using the speedlight on the camera. You can get creative with one or more speedlights to create amazing lighting. Do this by using the Nikon WR-T10.

Which batteries does this flash use?

This flash takes standard AA batteries. Keep a spare on you always to cope with extended shoots as at full power it uses a lot of juice. Ni-MH batteries are strongly recommended as they have the best recycle time and longest battery life.

Can I modify the colour of light from the flash?

The Lastolite Strobo Gel Kit direct to flashgun easily allows you to modify the colour of light that comes off your flash. This can be great for colouring a white background or just adding general coloured light to your scene.

How can I trigger the flash wirelessly?

You can trigger your flash wirelessly using the Nikon WR-T10 remote control, perfect for off-camera flash situations.

How can I make the light softer?

Make the light from the SB-5000 beautiful and soft with a Hahnel Softbox 80 Kit which comes with a stand. This is perfect for shooting portraits with an off-camera flash.
