      Product information
      Compatible with FX and DX-format D-SLRs, the Nikon SB-5000 Flashgun is a radio-controlled Speedlight that mounts to your Nikon camera's hot shoe, responding quickly and performing reliably for long shoots, on location or in studio.

      Fast, dependable wireless flash for studio and field photography

      The flash's advanced wireless lightning system provides radio control from up to 30 m, allowing you to create intricate on- and off-camera setups of up to six groupings of SB-5000 units. You'll be able to work in situations with obstructed sight lines or weak optical signals due to bright sunlight.

      Trigger single or multiple flashgun setups pairing the SB-5000 Flashgun and WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller (sold separately). Your flashgun works alongside Nikon's Creative Lighting System, and support for optical control means you can still use legacy Speedlights for multi-flash setups.

      Stays cool for longer

      Fire off more than 100 shots quickly at full flash power thanks to the onboard Speedlight cooling system. The Nikon SB-5000 won't easily overheat, an essential feature for busy photographers who're capturing events and need to work in fast-moving situations where you can't miss a moment.

      The system lets the flashgun achieve an impressive 120 shots at 5-second intervals, or 84 shots at 3-second intervals, suppressing heat generation within the flash head to prevent overheating.

      Works with FX and DX-format DSLRs

      Made to exceptional quality standards, the SB-5000 Flash can work mounted to your FX or DX-format SLR's hot shoe or wirelessly via remote.

      This professional i-TTL (intelligent Through-The-Lens) flash offers a guide number of 34.5 and a wide FX-format zoom range of 24-200 mm (14 mm with wide panel). Nikon's i-TTL flash control enables your Nikon SB-5000 Speedlight to share crucial exposure information with CLS-compatible D-SLRs.

      Unified flash control improves system control, so you can run the flash or adjust settings from the camera menu or a PC running Camera Control Pro 2 when the unit's attached to your camera.

      Adjustable for full creative control

      Enjoy complete control over flash coverage in almost any environment thanks to three illumination patterns. You can expand your photographic palette with a built-in wide panel and bounce card, as well as the supplied diffuser dome which can combine with Nikon's optional colour filters to.

      Using the Nikon SB-5000 is smooth and intuitive with its uncomplicated controls and menus, including a large, clear LED screen displaying crucial information. Access essential or favourite functions using the rotary multi-selector and ‘i' button.

      Similar to previous models, the flash head tilts down to 7° or up to 90°, and can rotate 180° horizontally. The SB-5000 Flashgun is light and compact to help you work comfortably in different conditions.
