Nikon SB-R200 Reviews

Excellent remote for macro

By William
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2019-09-18

This is my second SB-R200. Use for macro. Small, reliable, lots of flashes per battery. Less output than larger speed-light, but can do macro at ISO 200, f/29 with enough light.

Added for additional light to Nikon R1 system. Recommend adding if having low light issues. Identical to SB-R200 units that came with the R1 system.

This is my 3rd SB-R200 that I'm using in my macro photography. Very happy with them - small easily adjustable, all the power you need for small work, good refresh rate and wireless connection.

question

I see that this is lens-mounted or off-camera flash for macro. what is the right hot-shoe mounted flash for a D-80 for general photography? Or what are the options--the models I should be looking at? Thanks.
Asked by: Christopher C.
If you are looking for the Nikon Speedlight flashes designed for hot shoe usage, the options that are available would be the Nikon SB-300 Speedlight, B&H # NISB300, the Nikon SB-500 AF Speedlight, B&H # NISB500, the Nikon SB-700 AF Speedlight, B&H # NISB700, or the Nikon SB-5000 AF Speedlight, B&H # NISB5000. The Nikon SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight is not designed for hot shoe usage. It is designed for macro photography and either connects to the front of your lens using the Nikon SX-1 Attachment Ring and a lens adapter ring, or it connects to the Nikon AS-20 Speedlight Stand.

question

What 6 foot or higher stand can I purchase to mount the SB-R200 on? If I need a special connector, which one will work? Besides using for macro, I want to use it as additional lighting for portraits, ideally with an umbrella diffuser mount. Or, will this be inadequate for portrait fill lighting and I need to look at something more?
Asked by: Douglas F.
I wouldn't think these are good for anything but macro...I use them with Really Right Stuff Flash Ring and their specially designed fitting to mount the 200's on the ring. With some of Nikons newer cameras (I'm using an 810) you can set the built in flash to commander mode and it will fire the 200's; you can set the nikon built in flash to not fire. I find it to be a really sweet setup for macro work.

Does it come with the lens mount?

No, but it does come with platform mount. If you buy the kit with two flashes it comes with everything you need for micro photography.

I do not know as I shoot with a D7000. However, I can't imagine any reason why it wouldn't work. Please consult the Nikon Website for clarification.
