Ignite your creative vision with the all new Speedlight SB-5000. Engineered to meet the rigorous lighting requirements of photojournalists and studio photographers, the SB-5000 features cutting-edge capabilities such as the world’s first cooling system*1. The Speedlight is capable of firing off up to 120 flashes in a single burst, delivering powerful luminosity and ultimate control. It works seamlessly with the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS), offering the radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting (AWL)*2 that make multiple flash setup a breeze. With its compact size and all-new intuitive control panel, the SB-5000 is indispensable for those who desire perfection in their craft.
CONTROL BEYOND WHAT THE EYE CAN SEE
The AWL-enabled SB-5000*2 simplifies the complexities of multiple flash setups. With new radio-wave controls, the Speedlight no longer requires a direct line-of-sight for triggering other compatible flash units. Expand your creative lighting possibilities by attaching the WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller, allowing you to control up to 6 groups (A-F), totaling up to 18 SB-5000 remote flash units.
POWER TO SHOOT CONTINUOUSLY
Featuring the world’s first cooling system*1, the SB-5000 is designed to reduce the downtime between each take by actively suppressing the heat generated within the flash head. This enables the SB-5000 to deliver an astonishing performance of up to 120 consecutive flashes at 5-second intervals. Choose to activate this feature via a setting in the setup menu, and get the freedom of capturing images without waiting for the flash to cool down.
DESIGNED FOR PROFESSIONALS
Measuring approximately 73mm (width) by 137mm (height) by 103.5mm (depth), the SB-5000 boasts a clever design that maximises every inch of its compact size. Frequently used functions such as Flash Mode, Zoom Head Position, and Flash Compensation Value / Flash Output Level in Manual Flash Mode are now accessible via the rotary multi selector, leaving more room for a wider LCD screen. The [i] button traditionally seen on DSLRs is now a feature on the control panel, creating a more seamless shooting experience. At approximately 420g, the SB-5000 is as portable as it is effortless to handle.
