The Nikon SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight is a new compact Speedlight for Remote Speedlight operation in two different shooting conditions.

As part of a newly developed mini system for close-up flash photography, the SB-R200 is both lightweight and compact, which means it can be inserted into a dedicated ring attached to the lens to direct light onto small subjects. Or it can be used as a separate remote macro flash, mounted on the dedicated AS-20 stand.

The SB-R200 is also fully compatible with Nikon's Advanced Wireless Lighting system, meaning it can be used in multiple lighting situations with SB-800 and SB-600 units.

Note! The SB-R-200 cannot be attached to a standard flash shoe. Requires SX-1 Attachment Ring or AS-20 Speedlight Stand.

Flexible Control
The SB-R200 can be fully controlled wireless either by the SU-800 Commander unit or a SB-800 Speedlight in Master mode. Additionally, the built-in Speedlights of the D200, D300, D700, D80, 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

          Currently use the SB-R200 that I ordered from B&H as a third speedlight for the for macro work with my Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS). Super compact and versatile with easy to use controls. Came with all the accessories I needed to match what I already had with my CLS.

                  Great handy little flash. Perfect for macro work, but also great for portrait work as a hair light or even for fill. At events I keep this flash in my pocket and hand hold it to give some dimensionality for close people shots. My only wish is that this flash would also have a true hot foot to allow triggering by means other than IR. However, I understand that this might also defeat the purpose of keeping it small and light.

                  Amazing little flash

                  from Oregon

                  Comments about Nikon SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight:

                  The Nikon SB-R200 is a little bundle of flash power in a tidy little package. I am still having fun experimenting with the R200 remote from my Nikon D-7000 with it's built- in Flash Command function. Immediately you'll find countless uses for this little flash. Comes complete with a selection of filters, an excellent stand that will thread onto any standard tripod and a fitted nylon case. The battery is a bit pricey but has usually a 10+ year shelf life and delivers power to spare for many hours of sustained flashes. B & H fulfilled my order quickly and provided status updates via email. Their only screw-up was that I ended up taking delivery three full days earlier than they estimated. For me, that was a pleasant surprise! I can easily foresee me ordering a second R200 through B & H

                              Comments about Nikon SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight:

                              I purchased an R1C1 system on December 2011 from B & H Photo. Have used it since and felt the need to have a third SB-R200 (as filler and to splash a touch of color when needed).
                              The only thing I can say it's a draw back about this product, is the battery on this flash (cr123 - 3v). Since I shoot outside the USA, finding this batteries in other latitudes is not easy. So I decided to purchase a set of rechargeables batteries as back up when abroad.
                              For the flash unit, it is great. If you are into close up photography or product shots, this is the system to get.

                              I added this 3rd R200 flash to my original R1C1 speedlight kit to further expand the off camera lighting possibilities offered by the R1C1 kit.
                              I'm really enjoying the results I've been able to create with this system. Used with the Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D lens, this flash kit has rekindled my interest in Macro photography. It does add a bit more equipment to one's carry around bag however.

                                Comments about Nikon SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight:

                                Used as a third light with a Nikon R1C1 close up kit. Big benefit is that it can be controlled with a commander flash unit. This facilitates getting the right macro shot.

                                  Comments about Nikon SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight:

                                  If you want to balance out light for macro and wide angle close focus shots, these are great when combined with the SB-900 and a diffuser. The SB-200s can be used at any angle on a RRS FR-87-QR Flash Ring to provide well distributed light.

                                      Versatile. Easy to "hide" to add some spark on days when the natural light is inadequate. Very well designed. Important to keep spare CR batteries on hand when venturing to places with less accessibility to photo batteries

                                      This isn't a particularly powerful flash, but it's terrific as a handheld, off-camera unit held close to a macro subject. Only negative is that it doesn't use a battery that's easy to find -- you need a CR123A lithium. Recycle time is rated at 6 sec.
