Wonderful Solution for Mcro I use this product in my pediatric office to take Macro photos for skin lesions and other diseases. In the past, when I tried to take close-up or macro pics, the photo would be overexposed when I took it with a flash, and too dark without a flash. the SB-R200 is a wonderful solution to this. I did buy the full R1C1 system plus an extra SB-R200. Using this gear with my Nikkor 105 mm Macro lense is a great tool for me at the office. I would absolutely recommend this product to any person who is serious about macro photography. Thank you Nikon. May 12, 2011
Wonderful Addition to the R1C1 I own the Nikon R1C1 system and opted to purchase one additional SB-R200 to allow more creative lighting. Such as two mounted on the adapter and this third off to the side or behind. These are wonderful portable units; I almost always carry them in my bag for Micro Photography work. Please don't confuse these units with the SB-700. The main purpose of the SB-R200 is for close up work or augment your main flash. When used in combination the results are outstanding. When used as a primary Micro Photograpy flash system the results are excellent as well. Very flexible in the design and operation. Some complain about the non-rechargeable battery but I keep spares not only for the flash but camera in my bag thus it is not an issue for me, and don't understand anyone who do not carry spare batteries out in the field. In fact I can shoot hundreds of photos before the battery even shows signs of drain. - Hands down the best portable remote flash for close up work out there. Very dependable, and rugged enough to make the hike. Working with the SB R200 is simple and elegant and in almost all cases produce lighting that is perfect. Comes with a stand, filters and diffuser. Nikon calls it CLS for a reason - I love mine. October 7, 2010
Excellent Macro/Micro Flash I got the R1 flash system and i really don't think their is any flash system out there for macro (or micro) that can come close what this system can do. I added another SB-R 200 for the creativity aspect of having 2 flashes on the ring and one off (sometime all 3 positioned differently) and i always get fantastic results! This flash is intended for close up photography and it does that beautifully! March 31, 2014
Power System It would have been better to be supported with NIMAH AA size Battery instead of SR2 September 11, 2010

Answer: 
No, the 200 can only be controlled either with the on board commander, or flash commander, or the SU-800, if the camera isnt cls compatible then the only cord you can use is the SC-30 attached to the SU-800.

How is the SB-R200 triggered to fire? The product specs say there is a wireless remote, does something attach to the camera shoe?

Answer: 
To use the SB-R200 on the D5100 you will need the SU-800 as the D5100 has no in built commander. Also, if you want to attach it to the lens you will need the SX-1 and the correct adaptor ring for the lens.

Answer: 
No, well not directly as the D5100 has no commander, you would have to use a SU-800 or SB-700/900 to control it.
