Nikon Australia is pleased to announce the launch of the new Speedlight SB-5000, the first radio-controlled Speedlight from Nikon, engineered to expand the potential of every photographer’s artistic ability. Designed with radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting functionality and a cooling system that enables more than 100 continuous full-powered flashes, this Speedlight is a compelling addition to the Nikon ecosystem.
The Speedlight SB-5000’s radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting (AWL)1 function eliminates hassles to give photographers their choice of lighting positions and exposures2. A high output flash with guide numbers of 34.5 in FX-format and 41 in DX-format further provides a wider flexibility in preferred coverage.3
“This latest Speedlight offers a cleverly engineered mix of functionality and intuitive controls so photographers can increase productivity by getting their lighting conditions right first time. Nikon engineered the SB-5000 to offer photographers the next level in creative lighting solutions and help them capture that perfect shot in the most productive way,” said James Murray, Director of Sales & Marketing, Nikon Australia.
