Nikon SB -5000 Speedlight
The SB-5000 is Nikon’s first ever ‘radio controlled’ Speedlight. It uses RF (Radio Frequency) rather than infrared communication, which means it can maintain its wireless link around corners and through obstacles in its path (see page 130 for a compelling demo of this in action). Another first is Nikon’s new Speedlight cooling system, which enables the SB-5000 to keep going for more than 100 quick-fire shots. With a powerful Gn 34.5 rating, a motorised zoom head range of 24-200mm (FX-format) and full bounce and swivel movement, the SB-5000 is full of tricks. It’s supplied complete with a clip-on diffusion dome, colour-matching filters, a stand and a soft case.
BUY if… You demand top-end performance from a flashgun, plus ultimate versatility and the flexibility and reach of wireless RF remote triggering.
