The Nikon R1 Wireless Close-Up System (a.k.a. Macro Kit B) is a complete flash solution for cameras that feature both the Commander mode and include a built-in flash (e.g. D200, D70 & D70s). 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), and two SB-R200 wireless macro flash heads. The SX-1 Attachment Ring can accept up to eight SB-R200s and can be attached to a tripod for remote lighting.

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

Note: For cameras that do not feature the commander mode, but that are i-TTL compatible (e.g. D50), please see R1C1 kit (#4803).



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.

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°
