  • Q: Does the LED also assist with low-light focusing?  (2 Answers)

    By djgkg 

    • Best answerThe SB-500 does not include an autofocus assist feature. The LED light may increase the ambient light enough to aid in focusing in low-light situations. However, the LED was not designed for this purpose and results will vary depending on factors like shooting situation and focus distance.
