A must have for Macro work.

Much better than a ring flash

Mario Macro Hobbyist, Adorama
1 December 2010
  • Excerpt: This is an excellent macro flash system, much better than any ring flash, and possibly the best DSLR macro flash system designed so far. However, you must understand that it was designed specifically for macro photography (obviously used together with a macro lens), and not as a general-use flash system. Those who have given it bad reviews obviously did not understand this.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Versatile

Very capable close-up portrait system

bpmedman, Adorama
7 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Very good system, with case to protect and carry the kit. Works with virtually any lens, as all components are included. Especially useful for portrait and close-ups, the flashes can also be used for fill flash and mounted on stands. No need for commander module, as long as the camera has iTTL. Highly recommended to complete your indoor flash components.
  • Pros: Complete kit, Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Versatile

Very Versatile

  • Excerpt: Use the system for macro on insects butterflies. It is also versatile for closeup setups. I do not care for CR 123 batteries. Nikon should make a rechargable battery unit for speedlights.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Versatile
  • Cons: Bulky, Slow Recycling

Great Field Macro Lighting System

ChoiceGraphX, Adorama
12 August 2008
  • Excerpt: This is an excellent system for macro field work. This is Creative lighting on the fly just by dialing in a few settings on the wireless commander. . Keep in mind that this is sold as a CLOSE-UP system! Although I rave about the macro work it is a system that can grow.<br /><br /> I now use the SB 600s and 800s for fast environmental portraits. No more lugging large studio lights. However you can build upon it using the commander as the brain for almost any situation.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight
