Nikon WR-R11b Reviews

Works great

By Jason
Rated 5 out of 5

Bought mostly to be able to trigger while trying to juggle two kiddos and trying to get family photos. Works great and has made it easier to capitalize on the brief attention span from the little ones. Just would recommend removing before moving your camera around, it's easy to lose... (and I didn't attach the strap to camera body). Worked so well I didn't hesitate to buy a replacement

It Works

This is a review in frustration with Nikon that s snatches defeat from the jaws of victory. The improved replacement for the WR-R11a works as advertised. It bridges the electromagnetic gap between the RF-equipped Nikon Z cameras and the RF-equipped SB-5000 speedlight. That's the good. The bad is that it adds this oversized dongle to the $ide of the camera and only offers 3 channel$. This marriage, however, only offers control over an SB-5000, and nothing else. The SB-5000 will only offer group control over other SB-5000s, so all the optically-triggered Nikon units are left in the dark. To bring them back in the fold, the SB-5000 switches back to optical control when to SU-800 is attached to Z cameras.

Perfecto para el SB-5000

Excelente producto. Lo emparejas solo una vez con el SB-5000 y lo reconoce para siempre. Puedes apagar la cmara y al volver encenderla no demora ms de un segundo y ya est conectado. Lo malo: el alto precio y el lugar donde se conecta a la cmara. Si utilizas la correa de la cmara como yo, da la sensacin de que en cualquier momento se podra daar el controlador con el roce de la correa. Si eres cuidadoso y puedes pagarlo, ser un accesorio perfecto para tu Nikon. Excellent product. You pair it only once with the SB-5000 and it will recognize it forever. You can turn off the camera and when you turn it back on it does not take more than a second and it is already connected. The bad: the high price and the place where it connects to the camera. If you use the camera strap like I do, it seems that at any moment the controller could be damaged by the strap rubbing. If you are careful and can afford it, it will be a perfect accessory for your Nikon.

Great accessory for a Z7 though a bit overpriced...

This little thing, does magic. It controls the SB5000 vía Nikon AWL wirelessly. You can conteo different groups, power and function of the flash within the camera menu. Additionally you can remotely trigger your camera with the additional remote control. Or you can trigger another camera with your camera, to have simultaneous shots.

Perfect accessory for off camera flash SB-5000

I love this link between my Nikon Z7ii and SB-5000 flash. It allows me to add fill flash without having to place the flash on the camera. So easy to set up and once paired it works seamlessly.

Premium Nikon Product.

As expected, it is on the expensive side. It 100% works with SB-5000. Made in Japan. Essential for OG Nikon off-cam Flash Photography.

No, the Nikon WR-R11b is not compatible for use with the Nikon WR-A10. The WR-R11b can be triggered by a WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controller (transmitter), and a WR-1 Wireless Remote Controller.

Both the WR-R11b and WR-R11a can trigger the SB5000 flash from Z6, Z6II, Z7, Z7II per NIKONUSA website. So what is the difference between them?
Asked by: john
The Nikon WR-R11a is designed for use with cameras equipped with a 10-pin terminal (except some older DSLR models like the D100, D1, D1H, D1X, D200. The WR-R11a is not compatible for use with the Nikon Z6, Z6 II, Z7, or Z7 II Mirrorless Digital Cameras as they do not use the 10-pin remote terminal. The WR-R11b is compatible with cameras equipped with an accessory terminal (cannot be used with the D90, COOLPIX A, P7800, P7700, P1000, and P950). You would need the WR-R11b for use with the Nikon Z6, Z6 II, Z7, or Z7 II Mirrorless Digital Cameras.

Is this all would need to use an SB-5000 in radio mode off my D750?
Asked by: Clywton José de
Yes, the Nikon WR-R11b Remote Controller would be all you would need to wirelessly trigger the Nikon SB-5000 Speedlight Flash remotely. You would follow the instructions in both your camera's and your flash's instruction manual and set the switch on the SB-5000 to [Remote] and select the Radio Remote mode from the flash's menu for the two items to communicate with one another. The Nikon D750 should have a "Technical Guide for Radio-Controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting" manual that was included with the camera or which is downloadable for free from the Support page on Nikon USA's website.
