Hello guys.

A few months ago, after using Canon for 11 years I moved to Nikon, so everything is still new for me.

I was thinking of buying a flash, for the D850, as I always had one with Canon.
Since I loved using Canons radio wireless flashes (600-EX-RT), I was looking at the SB-5000.
Yet it is not clear for me how it works.

I did not really find a dedicated trigger for it (Like the ST-E3-RT) for Canon.
So how is it triggered? Or can I only trigger one with another SB-5000 mounted on the camera?

Also just in case I need a flash more urgently, then I anticipated, can someone recommend me some good Yongnuo or other flashes for Nikon?


Thank you.

SU-800 but nowadays there are many options for flash such as Godox v860ii or tt685 with a really nice X-pro controller.


Nikon/Fuji.

I found the SU-800, but that is optical only, isn't it? So how do I do that with radio transmitter?

So anyone here old enough to remember the commercial Pay me now or pay me later?

Well I bought the Yongnuo flash and trigger. Had good reviews. Figured how can I go wrong. It’s only like $150.

Well very wrong I went. Mine died in less than a month. Tossed it in the garbage. Ordered the SB 5000. Shame though Nikon didn’t make the wireless like Canon does. Just more money to spend.

Actually for the Canon Wireless you also need a seperate trigger. And its similar in prize.

Have you already been here:

I don't know if it's OK to post links of forums here but I'll take my chances.
It's a great place for questions like you have.

There's a new trigger:

https://www.amazon.com …age_o03_s00?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)

I'm not a huge flash user and I always go OEM, but I love the Good/Flashpoint gear. It's been reliable but so inexpensive that you can easily buy spares in case something does happen. Flashpoint is Good rebranded by Adorama. If I have an issue, I love Adorama's customer service, as opposed to dealing with Good in China. Another Godox rebrand is Cheetah. There are others too.
