  • Excerpt: The commander works great - can control multiple flash groups. Very intuitive for such a powerful device. Would have 5 stars, except I had to purchase it to replace one that quit after 6 years of 200 day/year use. I couldn't justify sending for repair, and had to have one up and running immediately.

  • Excerpt: I read some say this does not enough range, well maybe in a huge church or other building that may be true but it works just great for me. I did not measure it but it is a good 50-60 feet so the is perfect for me and it is great to use. I love the macro mode.

  • Excerpt: I've had the SU-800 unit for many years and have used it under a variety of conditions. Due to its requirement to have line of sight with my SB-900 and SB-910 speedlights, it was somewhat limited.

  • Excerpt: If you use 3 lights and want to control them individually, then you got to have this guy. Otherwise, the camera's remote controls will do a just as good or better job.

  • Excerpt: I use it with a PW miniTT1 in the hot shoe of a D750 & the SU-800 in the hot shoe of the TT1 firing 2 SB-700 speedlights. Works great. Operation & controls are easy to figure out.
