The Nikon 1 SB-N5 Speedlight is an excellent accessory for the Nikon 1 camera body line. It draws its power from the camera body, thus reducing its size. The flash head is directional and offers many lighting solutions for every image. As an outdoor fill flash, it is superb. See the image below that was taken in complete shade.
This unit is smaller than one anticipates even after having seen photographs of it on the website. It is powered by the camera battery and once turned on manually from the rear can be controlled thereafter by the camera. Bounce lighting is fine in a room with 8-10 foot ceilings and white or light paint surfaces. Even direct lighting was reasonably pleasant.
