DETAILS

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 trigger from your hot shoe and one to receive via a PC sync cable on the SB-5000).

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.

  • Special Note on Radio-Controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting:

    If you want to use the SB-5000's native radio receiver feature, you can only do that with the following combinations:

  • • WR-R10 + WR-A10 adapters on one of the following cameras: Nikon D6, D5, D500, D850.
  • • WR-R10 adapter on the one of the following cameras: Nikon Z5, Z6, Z7, D780, D7500.

    The WR-R10 needs to be updated to firmware 3.00 for Radio AWL to work. With the WR-R10 attached to your camera, check the firmware version through the camera menu (it will be signified by a 'W'). Adapters are not included with this rental.

  • NOTES

  • • Flash foot and filter attachments are not included.
  • • This flash requires 4 AA batteries to operate and they are not included. For extended use, attachment of a Nikon SD-9 battery pack is recommended (not included). You may also attach this flash to a battery pack, such as the Godox PROPAC PB960 Lithium-Ion Flash Power Pack or the Bolt PP-500DR Lithium-Ion Flash Power Pack with the help of 5-pin CKE flash cables. Note that you must still install 4 AA batteries into the flash even when using an external battery pack.
  • • 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) Pocket Wizards, such as the Plus X (one to trigger from your hot shoe and one to receive via a PC sync cable on the SB-5000).
