Awesome Commander I own and use a D2X, it does not have transmitter for wireless flash, I purchased the the R1 C1 entire kit that included this unit, SU-800, I have to say I rarely have my SB800 mounted on my camera anymore. I have owned this for 5 years now and use it anytime I need flash. I have used it controlling my SB800 and both SB-R200 flashes and it has worked flawlessly. I love the versatility it brings, the creativity you can have with off camera flash and a controller that works, every time. As with all my Nikon products, it is reliable, dependable and a solid unit, working flawlessly with the Nikon systems. You can not go wrong purchasing this unit. June 7, 2012
Excellent Speedlight commander I had a chance to really use this Speedlight Commander recently. It is an excellent unit and the true plus for this unit is that is easy to operate and understand. It can command 3 flash groups independently of each other and exposure can be set differently for each of the 3 groups. If I have 2 flashes to be used for a shoot I don't have to have one of the flashes on the camera with the SU-800. I love the 33ft reach of the auto focus assist lamp, far superior than using the camera's built in Speedlight. The SU-800 requires a Lithium 123 battery, however overall it is a great unit, I would highly recommend it. March 25, 2012
Easy Control Over Your Speed light Farm! If you use multiple CLS speedlights, this SU-800 commander makes the choir of setting the remote speedlights output quickly, not to mention by wireless. I use mine mostly in the field and appreciate the easy to use buttons which control all my speedlights groups. This commander can operate on any one of the 3 channels, and can control 3 groups of speedlights and each group can be set unique; meaning, a group of speedlights can be set independent of the other groups with any number of speedlights per group. I can set one group as main flash, the other group as 1:2 side lighting, and the third group as 1:4 back lighting. I can do this all from the commander, all I need to do is simply place the speedlights where I like and dial in the settings from the commander, and when the camera is triggered the speedlights fire. If I need to change the output of one of the speedlights, I do it from the commander. The commander takes one 3v "2019" non-rechargeable battery, commonly called "123". The unit powers down when the camera sleeps making for long battery life. The backlighted display is easy to read even in daylight. The unit can control speedlights up to approx 60 feet, the speedlights need to be in line of sight so they can be triggered. It also supports TTL using a cable. The unit itself is compact, less than half the size of a normal Nikon Speedlight. Not much more to say about the unit except it works well and does exactly what it was designed to do - control your speedlights. October 9, 2010

Hello,

I have a D5100 and the flash seem to be quite weak. So I am considering SB 910 and R1 set or R1C1. I am not so sure but from what I understand SB 900 can use to control 2 or more SB-R200 right, which mean I could just get SB 900 and R1 and get extra flash unit?

Also if I purchase additional SB-R200 unit, does it come with AS-20 Light speed stand or SW-12 diffuser or I have to buy those extra for each unit? The idea from Joe Mcnelly is very cool in his book to have 6 SB-R200 lock together to form ring light.

Thank.

Will

Answer: 
If you're using the SB-910 on the D5100 you just need to set the flash as a master in order to trigger 2 or more SB-R200, so you don't need the SU-800 commander. Supplied accessories for the SB-R200 is the SS-R200 Soft case.

I've had my su800 since my d70 days and the one short coming is that manual mode can't be adjusted in thirds like ttl. I still don't understand why every flash that supports cls can do that but the su800 can't. Please, please update the su800.

Answer: 
Since the D-5200's built-in flash cannot act as a master transmitter, you are correct that you need an external flash controller for using a flash wirelessly. The SU-800 is a decent choice for indoor shooting, but if you are using it outdoors you will get inconsistent results. The commander and the flash need line-of-sight to work, and being outdoors you will get a lot of interference, so your range is probably going to be limited to about 10-15 ft, and in certain conditions it still may not synch.

A better choice in my opinion is investing in a PocketWizard set-up. You buy one PocketWizard MiniTT1 Radio Transmitter (about $200) and one PocketWizard FlexTT5 Transceiver (about $220) and you have a much, much more reliable wireless connection because it's based on radio transmission, not IR. It's about $100 more total but 10 times more reliable. You connect the transmitter to the camera hot-shoe and the transceiver to the flash unit. Your range will be over 500ft and you don't have to be line-of-sight!

Much better value in my opinion.

Answer: 
IT cab fire the flash but only when the flash is in SU-4 mode as there is no inbuilt commander in the D3200 to be able to use CLS, so, if you want to make full use of off camera flash then yes you will have to use a SU-800 or another flash that you can use as a commander.

Just wondering if the wireless feature on the SU-800 is a wireless radio or infra-red transmitter? When using CLS the optical reader on the side of the Speedlight needs to be pointed to the commander unit. If the flash is being covered by a softbox or is being blocked by a wall will it still fire with the SU-800 or does it need to be in line of sight?

Answer: 
It is IR and needs to be in line of sight, if the reciever port is covered up it on the flash it will not work.

Answer: 
The SU-800 is a commander for cameras without a commander mode. This will allow any speedlight to work wirelessly with the camera.

I know my D5000 doesn't have HSS and doesn't have commander mode. My question is. If i buy SU-800 can I go beyond my camera syncs speed? Or rather buying Su-800 Could I use my Sb-700 as a commander and buy other Sb-700 and have HSS???...

Answer: 
You can use one SB 700 on your camera and it will have high speed sync with the other SB700. You must have your built in flash on, buy a SG-31R IR panel to block the light from the built in flash.

On D3/D4 can I use SU-800 as off-camera with a remote PC sync cord to control my CLS remote set up of 1 off SB-900 and 2 off SB-800 and simultaneously use a radio transmitter on the camera hot shoe used as a Remote Shutter Release.
And then, what will be the right PC sync cord
