Nikon D500 promo video features drone-mounted Speedlights

Nikon strapped two speedlights to a drone to light up rock climbers, as part of a promotion.

In one of the promotional videos for the upcoming D500 DSLR camera, Nikon sends two speedlights where no speedlight has gone before. It was a matter of time before somebody would do it: mounting a flash on a drone.


Starting from 3:45 in the video below, you can see how two Nikon SB-5000s are mounted on a drone to help illuminate a rock climber.

What do you think of this creative use of a drone? Would it be something you would need or consider for your next shoot?
