Most Liked Positive Review

 

It is old but does what it has to do, brilliantly!

I got it for my sb-700 flashlight, and then discovered that it was not necessary as my D7000 has commander flash available. But the SU-4 eliminates the annoying sound of the flash and has perfect timing with my camera, it can also be used with flashes with no wireless features like the SB-400, cool!!

Most Liked Negative Review

 

No SG-1 included

It evidently doesn't come from Nikon, no SG-1 flash guard (for camera's built-in flash unit) included, which is standard inclusion with a Nikon SU-4.

Works well

By

from Metro Atlanta  -  Semi-Professional

This is used on my Nikon SB-28 flash. As with any IR type device this works best inside. It does work in a softbox, behind a product, or behind furniture. I have placed it in a room off a hallway adding light to that area of a home; it did fire the flash Though it is line of sight, however when placed behind furniture in a large well lighted room it may not fire. Make sure the sensor is facing the sending flash or where it can pick up the bounced flash. When used outside it must face the sending flash. Though I like SU-4 I have purchased Radio Frequency (RF) transmitters and receivers. In more diverse situations, inside outside, and over distances, RF receivers are reliable; whereas IR can be hit or miss.

good product from Nikon

By

from Overland Park, KS  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

After I purchased it, I only tested it and then I put it in my storage. Because I eventually decide to get Pocket Wizard for wireless lighting. This one works great for what it is designed for. I like the way it does not require any battery but i do not line the "must-in-sight" requirement.

Useful for Nikon SB-28

By

from Atlanta Metro  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Some flash devices do not have a sensor to fire them such as the Nikon SB-28. Putting this on the SB-28 provides the ability to place it within my shooting environment having the flash fire. Some Nikon flash, others as well, do not have a IR widow. When you want to fire the SB-28 using wireless this device is a must.

On the nose

I use the SU-4 Wireless Remote with Nikon SB-28 flashes in manual mode in my home studio. So far they have proved very reliable.

Great little gadget!

By

from Bristol, VA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

It allows me to use my SB-28DX with the CLS. It fires every time, it's easy to use, and it has saved me from having to buy a whole new flash.

Donna M  Will this work with a Nikon D7000 and a nikon sb700 speed light?
CLARK A  Yes it does. works very well.
Shopper  Will this work in all modes of my camera D7000? I am wanting to use my sb-910 remotely in the sports mode.
CLARK A  YES
Lou P  it has been written, I need to be sure. will this work with a sb400 and sb 600?. thanks Lou
JIM H  Dont know for sure but I assume it will because it works with my old SB28, the picture is deceptive, the diffuser is to block the pop up flash that the SU4 picks up to fire your flash mounted on it
