R1C1 Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System

Walt, B&H Photo
12 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The R1C1 Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System allows you to totally own the light when shooting macros and close-ups. Doesn't matter what the sunlight is doing. They overpower the sun at close range - giving you luscious black and dark backgrounds so you don't need to perform digital magic in order for your subject to stand out. ISO 100, f/16, 1/200 second at 4 to 6 inches (10 - 15 cm) - no problem! Yes, a bit of weight at the far end of the macro lens - if you hand hold.
  • Pros: A Light Generator, Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
  • Cons: A Little Awkward

Spectacular for macro

Cebula, B&H Photo
12 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I take closeup photos of reflecting objects such as small metal items and antique light bulbs. Before I had the R1C1, it was a struggle with incandescent lighting systems and lighting tents. Unsatisfactory. I've had the R1C1 for only two weeks. What a difference! Goodbuy lighting tents. I don't attach the speedlights to the lens, so I can even use lenses that change length when focusing. I now have a total of five SB-R200 speedlights. The R1C1 comes with only two.

Spendy but Great for Macro & people

  • Excerpt: Have wanted this Macro Flash since the early 80s. Purchased 1 for myself & one for my wife. We both have used them for Macro shots of Bugs & Flowers. They are easy to attach & set up & work like MAGIC. Great for Macro,Pet & People. Will probably find other uses as time goes on. Very happy with this unit & all of our Nikon products.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output, Versatile

Handy, with limitations

MO, Adorama
23 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Easy to setup, light and extremely handy. Nevertheless, the two head system lacks power at the very small apertures often required for macro shots: the guide number of one SB-R200 head is 10 (m, ISO 100) and about 14 for two. You need exactly 9 of them to get the output of a single SB-600 flash (square root of the sum of the GNs to the square).

Very easy to use

Pclarks, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: So far I have only gotten to use this flash system a few times but Nikon's ingenuity and attention to detail still had time to astound me. The flashes are very easy to use and connect and field adjustments are a breeze. I definitely have enjoyed using this product and am most likely going to buy a third SB-R200 for backlighting.
