"R1C1 Qustion"


Midlothian, US
          

I recently picked up a R1 to go with my su-800 commander, I like off camera flash. My question is I would like to get more SB-R200's, they seem to be in very short supply. Is this a glitch in the system or is this the old supply and demand at work. I looked on Ebay and the only ones available are from Japan for nearly 300 dollars with shipping, that is twice the domestic price of 159.00.

Hi Tim,

I suspect that since the demand for SB-R200's is significantly less than the demand for the other Speedlights they are most likely built in batches like the top tier Nikkor lenses.
I am sure once they start producing the next batch they will be in the supply chain shortly after and available everywhere again.
Just be patient.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Hi Tim,

As Marty explained it is probably a case of supply has to catch up to demand. I noticed that B&H has them on backorder but the R1C1 kit is available. I had bought the R1C1 kit from B&H a couple of years ago and then ordered two more SB-R200s about 6 months later. At that time they had them in stock and I had no problem getting them. I was lucky because when I decide I want something it turns immediately into I "NEED" something! To get a feel for the situation I would call around to B&H and other distributors and see what kind of queue you can expect but continue to check eBay. Your other alternative, which may provide better results, is to check your local high end camera store. I have obtained a lot of Nikon gear from B&H but started to use Allen's Camera in PA when I picked up the latest TC-20 when they had it in stock and B&H did not. I also got my D4 months before I would have seen one from B&H. Sometimes "BIG" is not better. Good luck.

Marty and Mike,

Thanks for the replies. I am also, if I want it I need it now kind of guy. I am headed out to my local camera store as we speak. The problem here is Wolf Camera is closing so there is only one camera store in the area. Thanks for the advice.

Hi Tim,

I have been to two local Wolf camera locations about 60 miles apart and the shelves were empty with the exception of a few batteries for Coolpix cameras.
You might want to check Berger Bros. (800)542-8811 ( www.berger-bros.com ), they appear to have the SB-R200 in stock.
Good Luck on your search.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
