Nikon R1C1 Overview

The Nikon R1C1 Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System (a.k.a. Macro Kit A) is a macro flash solution for i-TTL capable cameras that do not feature a built-in flash (e.g. D2X, D2H/D2Hs, 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. When using the SU-800 with cameras that are not compatible with i-TTL flash control, only close-up flash operation is possible using the optional SC-30 TTL Cord.

Flexible Control
The built-in Speedlights of the D200, D70s, or D70 serve as the system's Master controller. 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 allow 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 before 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°.

question

Is there a Hot Shoe Adapter that will allow the R1C1 to be used on a Sony A7RIII?
Asked by: Mike
When mixing brands, the rule of thumb is the flash will go off at the right time however there will be no TTL. That is the case here. We have not heard or tested this combination so we are not 100% that it will fire. You have our 30 day return policy to consider. https://bhpho.to/2bxrYlG

I plan to use R1C1 photographing portraits with Nikon Z lens 24-70 2.8s which requires 82mm adapter ring but it is not included into the kit. What are my options given I have not found an adapter ring of that size?
Asked by: Sergiy
Unfortunately there is no adapter to use the Nikon R1C1 Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System directly on a 82mm thread. The best option would be to use a 82-77mm Step-Down Ring like this Sensei, BH #SESDR8277 (https://bhpho.to/3yUwwcT). Keep in mind this may cause vignetting as this is a smaller diameter than the front element of the lens.
