What we do like is that the SB-500 is compatible with the Nikon Creative Lighting System, featuring infrared commander/slave modes, although the Commander mode only works with fairly recent cameras. We also like the secondary LED lamp for constant lighting, which is daylight-balanced and has the same 24mm focal length equivalent beam angle as the main flash tube. Maximum flash power is rather modest. And based on running from two rather than four AA batteries, recycle speeds after a full-power flash are on the slow side, at 4.6 seconds for NiMH and 6.8 seconds with alkaline cells. Ultimately, the SB-500 is a good choice if you want something small, simple, and convenient, rather than a Speedlight with more power and sophistication. This is a small white card that pulls out from the front of the main flash tube, where featured. It enables some forward-facing light when using the flashgun in bounce mode, to fill in shadows and give catchlights in the eyes when taking portraits. Using quality screwdrivers is essentials as one damaged screw can bring big troubles.

My SB-5000 and D500 and was able to fire the flash using a WR-10 RF with a push of the camera shutter or remote each and every time in the brightest of sunlight. My older legacy optical wireless at times had trouble when the flash was set to fill at low power in the bright sun. I choose second option for which you can read below.

Working remotely with multiple cameras via a tethered 4G/5G network requires use of the NX Field software application. Take note of the channel on the top of the WR-R10. The default is Channel 15 on both the WR-R10 and the SB-5000. If you need to change that value later, you’ll need to change it on both the WR-R10 and the SB-5000. Slow sync is a mode for combining flash with long exposures. It’s good for scenarios like night-time portraits, where you might want to photograph somebody set against the lights of a cityscape. The maximum power output (light intensity) of a flashgun is usually quoted as a Gn (Guide number). It’s generally quoted at the maximum zoom setting of the flashgun, where power output is at its greatest due to the relatively narrow beam angle, and tends to be given in meters and/or feet using a camera sensitivity of ISO 100.

Many flashguns feature a diffusion panel that pulls out from the front of the flash tube and swings down with a spring-loaded action. It gives a wider beam angle, to cover the field of view when using a wide-angle lens. We find that two can be better than one, and that’s certainly the case with this twin Speedlight kit. A regular flashgun is far from ideal for extreme close-up and macro photography, as the off-axis flash tends to create dark shadows. To get around the problem, this specialist kit includes a hot shoe-mounting infrared wireless SU-800 commander and two small SB-R200 Remote Speedlight units. High output flash with a guide number of 34.5 in FX format and 41 in DX format, at ISO 100, m/ft, 35mm zoom head position, standard illumination pattern.If you're out on the beach or in the woods, again I'd use serious battery-powered professional strobes instead of these expensive and weak Nikon flashes. You can buy the larger pro units for less than the cost of this Nikon flash. Pots Which I used for collecting small parts and bolts during disassembly process. Nikon Flashgun Repair

Much more expensive than any other Nikon flash. You're paying for the novelty of a built-in radio slave. The HSS (High Speed Sync) mode offered by many flashguns enables you to use the flash at a faster shutter speed than the regular sync speed, which usually tops out at around 1/200th of a second. Also called ‘Auto FP’ mode by Nikon, this enables you to use flash at super-fast shutter speeds, albeit with a reduction in maximum flash power. I’ve been using the Nikon D5, the Nikon WR-R10 / WR-A10 wireless remote system, and my Nikon SB-5000s for a long time and I thought it might be helpful to other photographers if I shared some of my thoughts on this system. Before I explain how these amazing tools all work together, I wanted to first talk about some of the individual components.Special three pongs / 3 wings screws which Nikon have put make SB 5000 disassembly difficult for average DIY.
