Nikon SB-5000 Speedlight RF Controlled Flash

Product Code: 3350100F
The Nikon SB-5000 Speedlight is Nikon's first flash that operates using radio frequency, so you can place lights in other rooms or even around corners.



  • Operates using radio frequency
  • 30 metre (98 feet) range without direct line of sight
  • Advanced Wireless Lighting
  • New internal cooling system
  • Ability to control up to 6 groups of up to 18 Speedlights
  • Up to 120 continuous shots at 5 second intervals
  • Versatile bounce ability

Compatible with the Nikon D5 or Nikon D500

Our Verdict

The SB-5000 provides a high degree of flexibility due to its use of radio frequency - thus opening up new possibilities for lighting placements. The newly designed cooling system allows you to fire consecutively for longer than other models. An added bonus is its ability to be used with the optical system, so you can also use older Nikon flashes or even a Nikon SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander unit.

We Love
  • The new addition of radio frequency operation
  • Its ability to control a large number of Speedlights
  • Its ability to fire well over 100 shots without overheating
Product features in detail

Radio frequency operation

A first for Nikon, the ability to use radio frequency without a direct line of sight at up to 30 metres lets you put lights in separate rooms and around corners, and allows you to work in bright ambient lighting conditions.

Advanced Wireless Lighting

When combined with either the Nikon D5 or D500, and the Nikon WR-R10 and Nikon WRA10, it’s possible to control up to six groups (A-F) or eighteen Speedlights for complex wireless lighting. Additionally, you can use up to three groups of radio or optical controlled units by using it with a standard optical control Nikon Speedlight.

Internal cooling system

The new internal cooling system ensures the flash panel doesn’t overheat when firing consecutively, so it can fire for longer than standard models without the need to cool down in between bursts. Consequently, it can fire up to 120 continuous shots at five second intervals.

Versatile bounce ability

The SB5000 incorporates versatile bounce ability, so the flash head can tilt up to 90° or down to -7°, and can rotate 180° left or right horizontally.
