Nikon R1C1 Wireless Close-Up Speedlight Kit for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras – Customer Review:
EXCELLENT MACRO/MICRO ILLUMINATION!
The accompanying instruction book is very complicated & hard to understand (for a novice). Once mastered, the product produces very reliable, good lighting for macro or micro work. BUT don’t make my mistake…you only need an R1 if you have a D80 & some of the newer models (I think the D200) which have the capability of the controller unit (pictured on top of the camera) BUILT in. If you have a D40, or D70 & some other models then the R1C1 is needed. ALSO you have to go into the programming of the camera that has it built in (D80, D200) to make the correct settings for the control unit to fire the flashes. Overall, I’m very pleased with the thought and design. Plan to spend a good deal of time on the learning curve (where I am now).
