Bounce the light for beautiful indoor portraits
The flash head of the SB-500 tilts up to 90° and rotates horizontally 180° to the left and right, reducing unnatural shading.
High-performance LED light is incorporated that is effective for movie recording and close-up still shooting
The LED light provides output of approx. 100 lx, the highest-class brightness among products using two AA-size batteries. Illumination with a surface light source utilizing a diffuser covers the angle of view of a 24 mm lens (FX format). Output level is selectable in three steps (Low, Mid, High). As the color temperature is 5400K, that is close to sunlight, it can be naturally used as an auxiliary light during outdoor shooting. The color information communication function automatically sets the most appropriate white balance when attached to the D810 or D750. Also, superior color rendering performance ensures faithful reproduction of a subjects color.
