Hi-

I have just added an R1 macro flash, and I'm not yet able to get it to sync higher than 1/320 with the built-in flash as Commander.
The D300 won't let me select a shutter speed higher than 1/320 if the built-in is popped up.

Per the D300 manual .288 and also the R1 manual it looks like the R1 supports FP sync at > 1/320.

I have a SB600 available but haven't tested with that flash as the commander yet.

Has anyone got this to work with either of the above as commander, or know definitively that it just isn't possible?

Thank you;

MEMcD

The built-in Speedlight does not support FP High Speed Sync mode.
You will need to have an SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, or SU-800 in the cameras hotshoe in order to support FP high Speed Sync mode with remote SB-R200, SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, or SB-910 Speedlights.

The SB-R200 (R1) does support FP High Speed Sync mode.

>I have a SB600 available but haven't tested with that flash as

The SB-600 will support FP High Speed Sync mode when it is in the hotshoe.
The SB-600 does not have Commander mode built in so it can only be used on camera as a single Speedlight or as a Remote.
You will need an SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910 or SU-800 to act as Commander.

Best Regards,
Marty
