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.
