This is an outstanding flash. Its menu system is well thought out and it has a lot of power. It has the new radio triggering capability. I have a Nikon D500 which is one of the Nikon cameras that can work with the wireless radio triggering system.
Well thought out menu system. It has Nikon's new wireless radio triggering system. Its power helps when using the flash with light modifiers like umbrellas.
I purchased 2 SB5000 units to use with wirelessly with Nikon D850 and the required Nikon WR-R10 and WR-A10. The flashes synched immediately and are easily controlled using the on-camera controls. Much better than my old system of remote control via PocketWizard equipment.
I like these a lot. I have 3 of them so far and looking to buy at least 2 more. (It's why I'm on here right now actually...) These things have all the power you could really need in a speedlight, a great quality of light as well. Lots of options built in. Overheating is a non-issue.
What an upgrade from my SB-600. When photographing awards ceremonies from 85+ feet back (back of room), the SB-600 didnt have the capability to adequately light the stage area. In CW mode of the SB-5000, both the dais and stage were perfectly lit, no hot spots and the edge shadow roll-off was more...
I've used the SB-800, ok SB-900 overheated at the worst moment, SB-910 very very good speedlight and now the SB-5000, it's dependable, powerful and there is a tiny noise coming from the internal fan.
The ability to wirelessly control multiple flash units using radio signal is a huge advantage
RF flash control
I have been a Nikon shooter since the early 90s. Before that I shot Canon in my film days. I am very happy with the SB 5000. I have owned many Nikon flash is starting with the SB 800, SB 900, and SB 910. The SB 5000 is a great improvement over there past speed lights.
I purchased two SB-5000 to go along with my pair of SB-910s and my D500. The SB-5000 perform as well or better than the flagship 910 do, I was impressed. The SB 5000 have very good output, with quick easy menus that allow full control of the SB-5000 features.
Works well and the cooling fan functions as described. I haven't tried the wireless feature
Have now had the opportunity to use the Speedlight in several settings under a variety of conditions. Used it in an outdoor wedding in the woods at dusk and it worked great at distances up to 25'. Great fill and using the included diffuser provided a soft light that wasn't harsh.
