Nikon 1 SB-N5 Speedlight review

Nikon 1 SB-N5 Speedlight

Nikon 1 SB-N5 Speedlight Angle the  down, left or right and bounce light to precise advantage. The flash  double as a continuous light source illuminating for six seconds during both Motion Snapshot and Smart Photo Selector modes. Nikon 1 SB-N5 Speedlight Extra batteries not required—the camera powers the SB-N5 Speedlight.A very  flash that is made specifically for the Nikon 1 SB-N5 Speedlight as the Nikon 1 J1 has its own pop up built .

 It doesn't require batteries, drawing it's power from the camera battery. The head swivels up to vertical and to either side to bounce the flash either from the ceiling or walls or cards on either side. It is pretty powerful for it size and have been delighted to see some of my night time----indoor shots which normally look terrible look as bright and as softly light as if it were day light outside.

It seems  pretty friendly on the battery life as well, I haven't noticed a significant drop in battery life with the flash as compared to without (I suppose that may change as the battery ages).

This Nikon 1 SB-N5 Speed light for V1 Camera is designed for use with the Nikon V1 CX format mirror-less camera. Exposure modes Fill Flash, Front- and Rear-Curtain sync and slow-sync and flash compensation.

Flash duration is 1/4000 second at full power. A capture illuminator lights for six seconds using Smart Photo Selector and Motion Snapshot modes. Throw Light on Your World .
