The Nikon R1C1; A Close-Up Speedlight Commander Kit

Excerpt: Let's begin by saying that I'm primarily a nature photographer and have used flash very infrequently, that is, up to now. When I first received the unit it was in a black case and on first look I thought, "This is a lot of stuff. How am I going to use all of this, much less carry it in my camera bag?" Well, it isn't quite as much as it seems.
Excerpt: The lights connect to an adaptor that connects to the lens via the filter thread, with a set of step-up rings included for different lens diameters. The lights can be positioned around the ring, providing plenty of lighting and shadow control and additional units can also be added if necessary. The flash units can also be angled to provide more control, or bounced from reflector cards onto the subject if necessary.
