The Nikon SB500 is not only a flash, but also a compact video light. On the front of the flash are LED lights with a high intensity. These LED lights can also be used for a close-up. The simple control panel consists of clear buttons. Additional functions are activated automatically when you attach the SB-500 to your camera. Provide soft light by tilting the flash head and reflecting the light through the wall or ceiling. The flash is compact and lightweight, this is due to the fact that only 2 AA batteries are required.
