Versatile Lighting System I have owned this setup for 5 years now, I have used the SU800 and the SB200r flashes for everything . Macro, studio,remote indoor and outdoor situations. I purchased the entire setup including the SU800, as I use it with my D2X and my SB800. I have found this to be the very handy versatile lighting in many situations. I highly recommend this for macro and many other situations. I must agree with the above review as to the battery type used with this system, the CR123 batteries are very expensive and hard to find. The locking system for the flash to ring is a little stiff and sometimes hard to lock in place without a little finesse and double checking, but for the versatility and power I can live with these minor refinement issues.

very good setup this setup is awesome it has everything you need for lighting it has a flash and a wireless commander control September 15, 2010
Amazing Macro/Micro flash system! After researching nearly every macro flash system out there on the market, and reading extensive reviews,looking at photographs and checking on craftsmanship quality, I have to say you really do get what you pay for! This system is a bit more money then your standard macro/ring flash setup, but it's worth it in so so many ways. The versatility of being able to position your flashes anywhere you want (within range of the transmitter),being able to add in a 3rd flash if you so choose, as well as the kit that it comes with has so many cool little add-ons! For the people who tend to complain about the CR123a batteries, yes they can be expensive if bought separate, but i urge you to go online and buy them either on eBay or from a battery re-seller. I was able to purchase 36 of them for $19.99 on eBay and you can buy them in packs of 50 and 100 and they are Duracell. Also you can get generic named ones even cheaper and yes they do have rechargeable ones. You can pick up a charger and 4 CR123's for $30 roughly as well. So really it's not that big of a deal, if you plan ahead! And as far as the plastic ring mount complaint goes, i shoot with a Tamron 180mm macro lens. It's fairly long and heavy and if the ring was metal it would be too heavy! And trust me the flashes secure themselves really well to the mount and they are not coming off unless you wan't them too. They also slide around into different positions really easily as well. It would take some serious abuse to break this, like dropping your camera, or wacking it on a pole. The diffusers stay on really well,they could be a tad bit more snug, but so far i haven't found it to be an issue, whatsoever. The kit is well thought out and put together and it's really impressive what you get here. I strongly urge anyone looking for a top of the line macro flash to purchase this unit or to at least go find a camera shop and check one out. It might cost a bit,but you won't regret it,especially once you start seeing how sharp your images look. As well as being able to shoot hand held! March 31, 2014
Great idea that needs some refinement I have these flashes since they were first introduced by Nikon some 5 or 6 years ago. They can make awesome light under ideal conditions. However there are some serious design flaws that make them less ideal under normal shooting conditions. 1. The batteries are expensive and hard to get in remote areas. Even in our capital city it is not a given that you will walk into a camera store and expect them to have stock of these batteries. I prefer AA type so I can share batteries with other flashes and accessories. When batteries fail, (and mine failed a couple of times when I least expected) I can get AA type batteries even in small towns. 2. The hooks to attach the diffuser panels for extreme macro or to attach the transparent holder for filters are just too small - these attachments regularly fall off, and frustrate the nuts out of me. Also the hooks to attach the flash holder to the lens rings sometimes do not catch properly. I have on two or three occasions tried to fit them in a hurry, not noticing the ring did not clip properly and ended up with the flashes falling off the lens onto the ground. A redesign is needed. 3. I use the R1 kit ( using the camera flash as controller ). The wireless signal is just too easily obstructed by my hand, or by a diffuser, or at some angles to strong sunlight. Then one or both flashes do not fire. This limits the positions where I can place the flashes. A cabled solution like the Canon MT24 or the Olympus STF22 makes more sense for macro in my opinion. Although SC-30 cables do exist for these flashes, these are clearly indicated only for non-iTTL cameras. 4. When I use diffuser panels and extension tubes, I sometimes feel the flashes a little underpowered. Recharge times are also a bit long. These flashes are highly overrated. I usually get frustrated with them, pack them away and continue the macro shoot with one or two SB-800 flashes. I am now selling these as they do not contribute to my macro photography. They are OK in studio provided you do not block their signals with diffusers. Outdoors I envy the competition's products. May 17, 2012

Answer: 
No, the R1 won't work with your D40, because the flash doesn't have the commander option. However, the R1C1 Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System will, since it has the SU-800 commander that will trigger both SB-R200 Speedlights.

Answer: 
Yes it will work, however, if you are thinking of using it instead of a full ring flash for portraits etc, think again as it is just noe powerful enough for that sort of thing as it is designed for macro and close up work. This is of course assuming thats what you are wanting it for, if on the other hand you do want it for macro then putting it on a 24-70 is not going to be of much use as it is not a macro lens, with a minimum focus distance of 1.2ft it not going to get in very close.

Answer: 
Yes, you can. IMHO that so do the SB700, SB800, SB910 and the SU-800 commander unit. Also, if you're serious to macro to the point of having such expensive speedlights like the SB900 and R1 units, consider upgrading from the D5000 to it's "professional version" , the D90, which is essentially the same camera with the inclusion of a focusing motor (that will allow you to autofocus the best macro lens in the world, Nikon's 200mm AF-D micro. The D5000's lacks a built in focusing motor, required to focus AF-D lenses) and a CLS compatible built-in flash unit (that can command the R1 by itself, without an external commander. See the attached picure) - or even better, the "dream DX" D7000, whose price has lowered considerably.

Answer: 
Yes it will, however beinfs as its not internal focus you have to be careful when focusing as the weight can be a problem, this can be solved by using the UR-5 adaptor ring that is specifically designed for the earlier 60mm to mount the SX-1 ring.

Answer: 
I think for a definite answer contact service and support.
I own this system, use it with a D2X which is not full frame, and use it on my 17-35mm 2.8 Nikkor, the ring attachment screws into filter threads and it does not etend much more than my hood for my lens.
I have never experienced vignetting with my set up.
Hope this helps... I looked under all tech specs for this system and could not find your answer..

Answer: 
No, but you can get a 3rd party 52-55 mm step up ring. R1 comes with a 52 mm adapter ring.

I want to use the R1 on my recently purchased D5300. I don't think the built in flash has a command mode. Can I use SB910 as a commander and if so, is it complicated?

Answer: 
You are correct that the D5300 does not have in built commander so yes, you can use the SB-910 to control the R1 kit, you just turn the switch to commander mode and away you go

Answer: 
Yes and no, no in that you would need either the SU-800 or other such as the SB-900 to control it as the D3200 has no in built commander, so the R1-C1 kit would be an option.

It's back ordered at b&h, adorama, samys, amazon. I already own the su800 so don't want to purchase the r1c1. Will the r1 be offered again and if so, when?
