Part of the Nikon Creative Lighting System and offering Advanced Wireless Lighting, the Nikon SB-5000 AF Speedlight offers an enhanced degree of control and reliability for Nikon FX or DX cameras while maintaining the level of features established by previous Nikon Speedlights.

With a Nikon D5 or D500 DSLR along with a separately-available WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller and WR-A10 Wireless Remote Adapter, up to six groups of 18 SB-5000 AF Speedlights (A,B,C,D,E,F) can be controlled from out of view, behind obstacles, or other rooms from up to 3000m away. Seamless integration with Nikon cameras that incorporate a wireless optical TTL system is also permitted. Utilizing the SB-5000AF's Commander Mode, multiple flashes that feature optically-controlled, wireless capability can be set up in 3 groups (A, B, C) and in one of 4 channels. For further flexibility, groups of optically controlled (A, B, C) and radio-controlled (D, E, F) flashes can be mixed; and Unified Flash Control allows settings to be customized using a personal computer with version 2.23 or later of Nikon's Camera Control Pro 2 software installed. An SB-5000 AF Speedlight can also be remotely triggered using a Nikon camera with Commander Mode capability, or by using a separately-available SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander.

To help eliminate interruptions by frequent cooling cycles, the SB-5000 AF Speedlight features an integrated Hot-Shoe Mount Flash Cooling System with a heat-shedding design. This enables over 100 bursts at full output without overheating, which significantly decreases the potential for missed images whenever an on-camera flash is needed.

Included with the SB-5000 AF Speedlight are a variety of useful tools and accessories. First, built into the flash is a wide-angle diffusion panel to prevent vignetting when using wide-angle lenses. Also, there is a diffusion dome for softening the output of the flash and fluorescent and incandescent color correction filters for balancing the flash to ambient light.

All of these, along with a stand, are packaged with the SS-5000 Soft Case, designed specifically for the SB-5000 AF and accessories.
