    Nikon SU-800 commander

    Works great with my D850 to trigger a remote Nikon flash. Sometimes it doesn't fire if the transmitter isn't detected by the flash. I bought it to help focus inside in low light conditions. The D850 doesn't have a pop up flash to use as a commander. I also use Godox flashes with their trigger on the Nikon, yet AA batteries run out faster. The SU-800 takes a longer lasting lithium battery.

    I was seeking remote lighting command, The SU-800 gave me all I needed and more. I can now control all of my speedlights easily.

    With Nikon removing the on-camera flash, this is the last resort for commander controlling my multiple SB-910 Speedlites. Thanks B&H

    Terrific For Line Of Sight Off Camera Flashing

    By Jon

    Off camera flash is sometimes preferred to on camera flash. The SU-800 Commander is the perfect way to trigger my SB-700 flash when the flash is in a remote position off the camera's hot shoe. But, it is NOT a radio frequency control device so the flash has to see the trigger signal to fire. In normal rooms and offices it is a capable companion to the flash. The SU-800 will trigger multiple flashes off camera, as well, when set for this function.
