• Key specs: the SB-5000 offers a guide number of 34.5, a wide FX-format zoom range of 24-200mm (14mm with built-in wide panel), and three illumination patterns.
• Compact build, uncluttered control: the compact flash body weighs in at just 420 g. The uncluttered control panel allows for a large and easily legible information display. The flash head tilts down to 7° or up to 90°, and rotates 180° horizontally to the left and right.
• Accessories: the built-in wide panel and bounce card, plus the supplied diffuser dome, combine with Nikon’s optional colour filters to extend your creative options further.
Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager, Lenses, Accessories & Software, Nikon Europe, says:
‘Nikon has always been the frontrunner in the field of photographic creative lighting, continuously proving its worth in reliability, versatility and total system integration. The incorporation of radio control ensures the new SB-5000 will deliver even in the face of common problems like line-of-sight obstruction and bright sunlight. And thanks to the new cooling system, which increases the number of consecutive firings and eliminates unnecessary cut offs, the SB-5000 performs with exceptional control. It’s an exciting all-round flash for pros who demand consistently strong performance.’
* The SB-5000 boasts the worlds-first onboard cooling system among clip-on type compact flash units, as of December 1, 2015.
