About this item

An innovative high-performance, compact and lightweight speedlight that offers Photographers enhanced creative flash performance that's easy. The SB-50DX works compatibly with all Nikon SLR models that feature TTL flash control. It can serve as a bounce flash, an extra-wide flash using its adaptor for 14mm wide-angle coverage, TTL (Through-the-Lens) wireless slave flash, as an infrared remote commander to trigger off camera wireless TTL or manually controlled speedlights, and for close up shooting, as well.
Mounted on a Nikon N80 or N65, the SB-50DX can fire either independently, or together with the camera's built-in speedlight. Fired together increases total light power and the flash range! Additionally, the speedlight has a diffuser that can be positioned in front of the built-in speedlight, softening the output from the built-in speedlight while the SB-50DX can be fired forbounce lighting.
This combination offers results that will be very pleasing, especially for portraits.
Other Features of the SB-50DX features 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash capability for Nikon SLR cameras with compatible performance, including Nikon's D1, D1X and D1H models.
The SB-50DX permits close-up shooting up to 11.8 inches. The flash head tilts up 90-degrees for bounce flash effects or down to minus 18-degrees for on-camera close up shooting. When using fresh batteries, the minimum recycling time is approximately 3.5 seconds in full power manual mode.
Additionally, the SB-50DX features an AF-Assist Illuminator, which automatically fires an LED beam toward the subject to augment dim light or even for making pictures under total dark conditions using compatible Nikon AF cameras.
Additional features include a Ready-light to indicate charge level; Flash compensation from +/-3 EV in 1/3 EV Steps (film) and 1/6 EV steps (digital); Flash button for test firing; Wide-flash adaptor for 14mm lenses; Diffuser for double-flash operation and a Light sensor for remote operation.
The SB-50DX also includes a Lock lever to prevent the speedlight from accidentally slipping off the camera's flash shoe; LCD panel illuminator to automatically turn off the flash when not in use and an Infrared Filter SW-91R to offer the user an infrared remote commander.
Weighing just 8.3 ounces, without batteries, the SB-50DX joins Nikon's lineup of dedicated electronic speedlights that are designed to satisfy all levels of photographers and perform perfectly with the advanced capabilities of Nikon cameras.
