Product Description

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.

Weighing only 273g with batteries, the Speedlight SB-500 is surprisingly portable with dimensions of just 67mm (width) x 114.5mm (height) x 70.8mm (diameter). Its flash head tilts up to 90° and rotates 180° left and right, reducing your need for unnatural shading with additional accessories. Simply slot in 2 R7/AA-size batteries and start snapping away with ease.

Small in size but big on performance, the SB-500 offers best-in-class brightness for flashlights that use 2 AA-sized batteries. Select from three output levels of LED light – low, mid, and high – and experience the SB-500 difference, even in dark interiors or at close distances. Its colour temperature is closer to natural sunlight, so you can use it as an auxiliary light even when you’re outdoors. With a coverage of 24mm*1lens angle of view in FX-format DSLRs, it provides even lighting to reproduce colour as you see it. The color information communication function of the Speedlight also works seamlessly to automatically set the most appropriate white balance when paired with compatible cameras such as the D810 and D750.
