The Nikon SB-500 speedlight was announced in September of 2014 together with the Nikon D750 and Nikkor 20mm f/1.8G lens. Sitting above the compact SB-300 and below the larger and more powerful SB-700, the SB-500 is targeted at beginners and enthusiasts, who want something more capable than a...
The SB-500 is Nikon's best small flash made in 2015. It's small, fast and powerful. It does exactly what it needs to and gets out of my way so I can take pictures. The SB-500 is the best new flash Nikon has introduced since the SB-400 of 2006. If you think you want an SB-500, you'll love it!
I bought this flash to go with my D-500 for use when traveling on vacation and for when I just don't want to lug my much larger SB-910 around. I have been pleased with the results so far for still shots.
Perfect size for travel and use of two AA batteries makes it universal. Versatile and plenty of power. Off-camera control via CLS is a breeze -- albeit only channel 3 (strange - the SB-600 initally defaults to channel 3 also). I am sad it can not be used as a commander -- except on D750 and D810.
The SB-500 is a great addition to my D7100. While it doesn't have the power of the larger Speedlights it's more than adequate for casual use. Its size allows me to carry it in my smaller bag, so I always have it with me.
Light weight, compact and easy to use. It's just what I was looking for.
This product does exactly what it says it will do! So far it has really helped clean up my evening and indoor photos. It is a perfect starter flash for those hoping to hone their skills.
Handy little flash to have. I use it for indoor head shots at work for new team members.
Easy to use, lightweight and compact.
I use this mostly as an off camera flash along with my older Nikon SB600. Both of these I trigger with the Nikon CLS system with my built in flash on my D300. The sb500 flash is very compact and powerful enough for what I use it for. The built in LCD light is fun to play with.
Great flash for such a small size.
Just the right size for travel. Works as a slave to my SB700 or the D7000.
