The Nikon R1C1 Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System is a macro flash solution for i-TTL capable cameras that do not feature a built-in flash (e.g. D3x, D3s, D3, F6). The kit is fully compatible with the Nikon Creative Lighting System and Advanced Wireless Lighting system when used with compatible cameras and/or flashes.

The kit's main components consist of the SX-1 Attachment Ring that attaches to the lens filter treads via an adapter ring (included), two SB-R200 wireless macro flash heads, and the SU-800 Commander Unit. The SX1 accommodates up to eight SB-R200 Speedlights off camera, and up to four on camera.

This solution enables excellent close-up lighting control with exceptional flexibility and innovative options.

Note! When using the SU-800 with cameras not compatible with i-TTL flash control, only close-up flash operation (using cords) is possible when used with the optional TTL Cord SC-30.

Key Features

Flexible Control

  • The built-in Speedlights of the D200, D70s or D70 serve as the system's Master controller. Or, for non i-TTL cameras, the SC30 sync cord can be used for off-camera control.
  • The SX-1 Attachment Ring can accept up to eight SB-R200s and can be attached to a tripod for remote lighting.

Creative Lighting System

  • Supports the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS) and compatible CLS cameras
  • Built-in target light and AF Illuminator allows for proper position of Speedlight on the subject as well as autofocus operation in low light situations
  • Accurate i-TTL flash control achieved through flash exposure monitoring control
  • Can be set to one of three Speedlight Groups (A,B and C)
  • Offers four independent channels for competitive shooting environments
  • Auto FP High-Speed Sync; use with fast shutter speeds achieves effective blurring of out-of-focus background elements
  • FV lock holds flash value, enabling recomposition prior to shooting
  • Flash head tilts down (toward the optical axis) to 60° with click stops at every 15°, or up to 45° (in the opposite direction) with click stops at every 15°
