Nikon SB-5000 VS. SB-910 Speedlight flash review and comparison video done by photography pro The Angry Photographer.
The Nikon SB-5000 Speedlight is the Nikon’s new top of the line flash, released at the same time as the new Nikon D5 camera. The big selling feature for the SB-5000 is its ability to run and trigger by way of radio frequency, a new breakthrough for Nikon’s line of portable speed flashes.
Also, new for the SB-5000 is a upgraded cooling system giving improved consecutive flash times before cool-downs, and 120 continuous shots at 5-second intervals before overheating.
