Product Summary

Overview

The Wireless Remote Speedlight SB-R200 (Amazon | Adorama | B&H) is a budget Speedlight system from Nikon that has been optimized for amateurs looking for something better than their built-in DSLR flash. The Wireless Remote Speedlight SB-R200 is compatible with Nikon’s Creative lighting System and any camera system that is compatible with this technology. Featuring i-TTL (intelligent through-the-lens) flash control that offers better control over the amount of light that is used to properly illuminate the subject the Wireless Remote Speedlight SB-R200 is a handy tool to have in low light conditions or even when you want to use it for filling the shadows in bright light. It also comes with manual flash control feature for precise amount of light for your compositions.

The Wireless Remote Speedlight SB-R200 comes with four independent channels for controlling up to three different Speedlight groups or with any number of independent compatible Speedlight units. These include the SB-900, SB-800, and SB-600 Speedlight units.

The guide number of the Wireless Remote Speedlight SB-R200 is 10 m/33’ at ISO 100 to 14 m/46’ at ISO 200. The recycling time of the Speedlight unit is 6 seconds and has a lens coverage of 24mm 60° (vertical) and 78° (horizontal). On a full charge of one 3V CR123A lithium battery the Speedlight can give 290 flashes.

The dimensions of the Speedlight are 3.1 x 3.0 x 2.2” and it has a weight of 120 grams. Retailing at $165, this is a budget wireless Speedlight that should cater to most amateurs looking for their first Speedlight.
