The Nikon SB-5000 AF Speedlight features Nikon's Creative Lighting System with Advanced Wireless Lighting but also with new radio control as well as traditional optical wireless control. This allows the placement of up to six groups of remote flashes up to 98 feet (30m approx) away, regardless of obstructions such as walls. As of 5 Jan 2016, the SB-5000 is the world's only on-camera hotshoe flash to feature on-board cooling, allowing for up to 100 consecutive shots at full output setting.
Advanced Wireless Lighting (AWL)
Compatible with the D5 and D500 as of Jan 2016, the Nikon Advanced Wireless Lighting system is made possible when used with the WR-A10 wireless remote adapter and WR-R10 wireless remote controller. It allows the user to control up to 6 groups of SB-5000 speedlights up to 98 feet away, regardless of obstacles or ambient lighting.
No longer will you be limited by overheating flash caused by continuous shooting. The SB-5000 AF Speedlight will handle more than 100 consecutive operations at full output without risk of overheating.
Small and Logical Design
The compact design allows easy access to mode, head position, and compensation functions, as well as allowing control via a D5 or D5000's camera menu.
Use with Other Nikon Flash
The SB-5000 can be used as a master flash to control other speedlights - up to 3 groups and 4 channels, or it can be controlled as a remote flash using the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander, or another speedlight or your camera's built-in flash. It is even possible to mix optical (Groups A/B/C) and radio (Groups D/E/F) control. The SB-5000 can also be controlled by a PC using Camera Control Pro 2 (v2.23 onwards) software - available separately.
