Designed exclusively for the Nikon 1 V1, the compact and versatile Nikon 1 SB-N5 Speedlight delivers creative flash control such as bounce flash, direct light or as a fill to reveal detail in the shadows.
Plug the compact i-TTL compatible SB-N5 Speedlight into the Nikon 1 V1 multi-accessory hot shoe, then angle the flash up, down, left or right, or bounce light where it’s needed. The SB-N5 also doubles as a continuous light source, illuminating for up to six seconds during both Motion Snapshot and Smart Photo Selector modes. Extra batteries are not needed, as the SB-N5 Speedlight is powered by the camera.
