It has always performed extremely reliably with highly consistent exposures and, apart from a faulty flash unit caused when it slipped from my hand to a stone floor, it has never been for repair.
The Nikon Creative Lighting System Using the SB600 SB700 SB800 SB900 SB910 and R1C1
Portability, convenience and reliability — in 7. The macro flash seen here on a D is compact and makes for a highly portable unit. Here the set-up is next to a macbook pro where Lois is checking images. If they pass inspection I can have my camera back…as long as I make lunch first. With the R1C1 Commander kit you get a flash system that copes with virtually anything you can throw at it not literally — although it is pretty well-made for something plastic in a close-up and macro sense.
It is not a casual purchase, no commercial macroflash system is, but it is light, robust, compact, free of cables and, above all, has proved reliable under heavy use. It does what it says on the box and a lot more with a tiny bit of ingenuity such as microscope lighting, wide-angle macro fill in and so on. With complicated DLSRs it is good to know how to reset the system to defaults and save fiddling when out and about for so doing inevitably makes things worse. The bulk of my macro work is in the field — for example in a meadow or woodland where, in May, there can be dozens of orchids, spiders, butterflies and a host of flowers that I want to capture in a days or less.
For example, when you want to change aperture to control depth of field the system compensates and you can do this without lifting your head from the viewfinder.

I have also as is my usual practice been able to adapt this kit to become effective with ultra-wide lenses — there is an account here. You can use the macroflash kit as it comes or put on the diffusers for going closeand more or less eliminate hot spots. The component parts — flash heads and commander unit are clearly visible: this is an experimental set-up for throwing light on fish-eye close-ups. I now use a sheet of flyweight envelope stiffener with a small length of 10cm diameter orange drain pipe, sprayed matt black, through which the 15mm f Simple and effective.
The SU wireless control unit is simple to use with a clear, reverse display. From it you can control multiple flash guns in three groups using one of 4 radio channels just in case you have companions nearby who also have the same unit — you can change channels.

This book really didn't add much to what I already know. It is a beginner book and too basic. William A.
