OK, so I've got the R1 firing with the Pop up flash in Commander mode.

Is there a setting that allows me to turn off the flash but still activate the SB 200s?

Also, I'm having trouble getting proper exposure when the R1 fires. Most of the results are underexposed. What settings should I be using to get proper exposure?

Thanx!

    Hi Dana,

    >It seems I'm getting inconsistent exposures from one shot to
    >the next. ANy suggestions?

    Are you allowing the SB-R200's enough time to fully recycle before you release the shutter?

    Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

    Best Regards,
    Marty

    "It seems I'm getting inconsistent exposures from one shot to the next."

    Just to be sure... do you have auto-bracketing set on the camera?

    Good luck,
    Richard
