Depending on the environment, you can get fine results with flash in the manual mode, choosing your aperture and shutter speed (with the mechanical shutter your sync speed can be 1/250). The optional flash for the V1 can be set to manual mode (I use 1/16 power) to trigger SB-800s in the slave mode. This is a manual operation. Like the good old days. :~)
My V1 has become my favorite, especially using the FT-1 and fast glass like the 35mm f/1.8g, 50mm f/1.8g and the 85mm f/1.8g for indoors available light work with near silent operation.
For macro work I use an 85mm f/3.5 VR micro which gives me the working distance of a 200mm macro.
