The tiny SB-N5 Speedlight flash unit is the ideal piece of kit to have at hand if you want to control the direction of light.
It attaches to the camera’s multi-accessory port and can be rotated vertically or horizontally to bounce the flash off the ceiling or walls. A capture illuminator on the front of the unit provides extra light when using Motion Snapshot or Smart Photo Selector in the dark.
Ultra-portable: amazingly small, incredibly lightweight Speedlight flash unit.
The right light: lets you control the direction and quality of light and get creative with shots by ‘bouncing’ the flash off the ceiling or walls.
Flexible: can be rotated vertically or horizontally for natural-looking images with more depth and soft shadow.
Capture illuminator: supports use of Motion Snapshot or Smart Photo Selector. Provides additional light so you can use these groundbreaking features in the dark.
No batteries: powered via the camera.
