Compact. Lightweight. The ease of manipulating light to capture the images you’ve always wanted. Enjoy these features and more with the new Speedlight SB-500, the high-performance LED flash that’s perfect for your DX-format or FX-format DSLR. Offering brilliant illumination for close-ups and movie-recording in the dark, the Speedlight SB-500 is your indispensible companion to capture that flash of inspiration, no matter where you are.

Compact and lightweight, easy-to-use Speedlight

The SB-500 is a high-performance LED flash for both DX-format and FX-format DSLR users who are looking to achieve enhanced imaging expression.

Guide number of 24/78.7 (m/ft, ISO 100)

The SB-500 provides a guide number of 24/78.7 (m/ft, ISO 100) and coverage for the angle of view of a 24 mm lens (FX format) or 16 mm lens (DX format), extending the range of your creative expression.

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 subject’s color.

Supports the Nikon Creative Lighting System

Six CLS features out of seven are available: i-TTL mode, Advanced Wireless Lighting, Modeling flash, FV lock, Flash color information communication, Auto FP High-speed Sync. Wide-area AF Assist Illuminator is not supported. In Advanced Wireless Lighting, the SB-500 can be used as a master flash or remote flash using the camera’s built-in flash as a master.

Easy-to-understand operation

When attached to the D750, the SB-500 is automatically recognized and flash settings are enabled from the camera’s custom menu. Even commander mode can be set from the camera.

Compatible with readily available AA-size batteries

The SB-500 uses two AA-size alkaline or Ni-MH batteries which are available almost anywhere, so you’ll never run out of power.
