The Nikon SB-5000 Speedlight Flash boasts some improvements over the SB-910, including a quicker recycle time, better maximum radio range, and a wider zoom range, all while being slightly more portable. It has a built-in cooling system that vents quickly so that you can shoot up to 100 consecutive full power flashes. This flash automatically detects when you are shooting with a full frame or crop frame sensor camera so that it can select the appropriate illumination pattern.

This compact lighting unit can be mounted onto the hot shoe of your Nikon camera or fired wirelessly optically from either your camera's built-in flash or with a Nikon SU-800 Speedlight commander. For radio firing, you may optionally use (2) PocketWizards, such as the Plus X (one to master from your hot shoe and one to slave via a PC sync cable on the SB-5000). Please see the Notes tab for more options.

For extended use, attachment of the Nikon SD-9 battery pack is recommended (not included). You may also attach this flash to a Quantum battery pack with the help of the CKE cable. Note that you must still install 4 AA batteries into the flash even when using an external battery pack. The SB-5000 is the perfect choice for wedding photographers working alone or with assistants. It is also ideal for portrait and travel photographers who need to create the biggest light possible from a very small unit.

  • • This flash requires 4 AA batteries to operate and they are not included. For extended use, attachment of the Nikon SD-9 battery pack is recommended (not included). You may also attach this flash to a Quantum battery pack with the help of the CKE cable. Note that you must still install 4 AA batteries into the flash even when using an external battery pack.
  • • A flash foot is not automatically included with your rental. If a flash foot is needed, please select the option at checkout.
  • • Filter attachments are not automatically included with your rental. If filter attachments are needed, please say so in the notes.
  • • This flash is not recommended for use with fisheye lenses of 15mm or wider. Use of this flash with ultrawide lenses may result in unwanted shadows.
  • • This flash is not compatible for use with IX-Nikkor lenses.
  • • Pop-up flash on most Nikon DSLRs will command this flash off-camera optically, as will the Nikon SU-800 Speedlight Commander. To fire this flash with radio, please optionally rent (2) PocketWizards, such as the Plus X (one to master from your hot shoe and one to slave via a PC sync cable on the SB-5000).

  • Special Note on Built-In Radio Receiver Capabilities:

    This flash behaves like most previous Nikon flashes and can command optically as a master or be commanded optically as a slave, either with a Nikon DSLR's built-in flash, the Nikon SU-800 Speedlight Commander, or with another Nikon Speedlight. You may also fire this flash off-camera using radio with the help of radio transmitters, such as a set of PocketWizards. If you want to use the SB-5000's native radio receiver feature, you can only do that when this flash is paired with a WR-R10 as a commander and you're shooting with either a Nikon D5 or Nikon D500. The WR-R10 will not fire the SB-5000 from any other Nikon DSLR as of this writing.
