Nikon SB-500 AF Speedlight Flash
& LED Video Light

Take control of the lighting in your stills and HD videos.

Portable and easy-to-use, the Nikon SB-500 AF Speedlight Flash & LED Video Light is compatible with Nikon DSLRs as well as specific COOLPIX cameras. With a compact, lightweight build, this flash unit makes it simple to manage the quality and direction of light. In a first for Nikon, this Speedlight features a high-intensity LED light on the front of the unit that is ideal for shooting movies, or capturing close-up still images. Compatible with the Nikon Creative Lighting System, the SB-500 also enables wireless control of multiple flash units.

Key Features:

Compact, lightweight and multifunctional
The SB-500 AF Speedlight has simple controls -- just a few buttons -- yet, it offers the performance of an advanced Speedlight. Its powerful and has wide coverage with a guide number of 24/78.7 (ISO 100, m/ft) with 24mm coverage in FX-format and 16mm coverage in DX-format. Its head rotates 180° left and right and tilts 90° upward allowing you to bounce light off nearby surfaces to soften the light and shadows, creating more flattering portraits. If your camera has a Commander Mode, it can even be used wirelessly off-camera along with your camera's built-in flash for greater illumination power from interesting angles.

High-performance LED for video recording
The SB-500 AF Speedlight is also a versatile video light especially well suited for recording interviews up close. It has a built-in high-intensity LED light (approx. 100 lux) that provides steady, uniform daylight-balanced illumination. It can be used at three output levels -- quarter, half or full power -- making it practical for low-light video shooting and close up still photography. And when used with the D810 or D750, the SB-500 AF Speedlight communicates LED color information (along with that of the flash) to the camera for optimal white balance.

Nikon i-TTL technology
Nikon's i-TTL technology (intelligent Through-The-Lens) tailors the characteristics of the flash to each shot you take, so you get optimal results every time. With that intelligence and more illumination power than a camera's pop-up flash, the SB-500 AF Speedlight is excellent as a fill-light outdoors (brightening shadowy areas on your subject) or for soft bounce lighting indoors. Use it off-camera wirelessly as a second flash controlled by either your camera's built-in flash (if your camera has a Commander Mode), another Speedlight or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander. If you're using D810 or D750 in Commander Mode, the SB-500 AF Speedlight will also work as a master flash in Advanced Wireless Lighting.
