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.I use it primarily during wedding coverage and with 4AA batteries, it lasts me all day long without...
It's a good flash, but only when used in certainly circumstances. It's good on camera. It's fine off camera if you use a separate radio control system (i.e. PocketWizards). However, the built in radio control is a joke. The flash ONLY receives signals, even when used in master mode on camera.
Works well and the cooling fan functions as described. I haven't tried the wireless feature
Finally the Nikon Speedlights are getting smaller again! Great, more powerful flash, in a slightly smaller package. The added power, coupled with the internal fan for extra cooling means you can push this to the limit. Nikon seems to have solved the overheating issue from a few flashes ago.
I would buy this again. As advertised.
One best Speedlight I ever got from Nikon very good Speedlight like it a lot
I used it few times. Much improvement over SB 900
I purchased the SB-5000 8 months ago and used it to do some head shots. I paired it with my SB-910 and trusty SB-800. The untit started overheating while using it at 1/8 power. The other two units did'nt break a sweat. Kinda disappointed in the quality of the unit.
I found that having two of these flashes works well with my 800E, SB800 in a multi flash setup .. with an umbrella and Orb set up. No transmitter required, which was a surprise and a plus. Will see how it goes... still learning all of the best practices, and diversity of uses.
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.
