At first I though I wanted radio instead (...but read on!). I photograph a lot of school classrooms and science labs in which I quickly add lighting with one or two Nikon speedlights using Nikon Wireless. I'd been using the cameras built-in commander menu, which is really cumbersome.
This is a niche flash accessory. It adds another dimension to your creative capabilities with your Nikon DSLR. It allows you to remotely activate other Nikon flashes and use their creative lighting system, or connect by cable to conventional commercial flashes.
I've had the SU-800 unit for many years and have used it under a variety of conditions. Due to its requirement to have line of sight with my SB-900 and SB-910 speedlights, it was somewhat limited.
The SU-800 has been around a long time but Ive managed without since my earlier Nikons all had built-in Commander which worked well enough for me needs. Then I upgraded to a D850 which elimated the built-in commander and rendered my older flash units obsolete.
I ended up ordering this unit to go with my D850 since it no longer has a pop up flash that can be used for a commander. Seems to work well with my SB-910s. No misfires or issues.Note: mine did not come with a paper manual or a battery (CR123).
Nice transceiver just what I need it
Fantastic command are unit for SB R200s used in conjunction with R1C1 Flash System.
I've had the SU-800 for a week and it seems to operate fine so far. However, I took away one star because Nikon is so cheap that they ship this unit without a battery. The battery is not a common one so it can only be obtained in a photo shop.
Works flawlessly for my uses.
I bought this unit to control flash units used when doing macro photography. But this is great for controlling off-camera flash unit for portraiture as well. The setup works well with my Nikon D5500 and my two SB-500 flash units.
