Question

Can this system be used with the new 5300

I have just purchased a Nikon 5300 camera. I have the R1 system from my D70s which fired perfectly with the pop-up flash. Can I use the pop-up flash on the 5300 to act as the commander and trigger the SB-R200 units or do I need a commander unit. If the pop-up will work what settings do I need to change to get the flash to trigger properly.

Yes and no, no in that you would need either the SU-800 or other such as the SB-900 to control it as the D3200 has no in built commander, so the R1-C1 kit would be an option.

R1 compatability with D5300?

I want to use the R1 on my recently purchased D5300. I don't think the built in flash has a command mode. Can I use SB910 as a commander and if so, is it complicated?

You are correct that the D5300 does not have in built commander so yes, you can use the SB-910 to control the R1 kit, you just turn the switch to commander mode and away you go

I must be misunderstanding you question, you do not need a SU800, yes the built in flash will fire the remote flashes as long as you set them up in the D800 menu. The D800 has the equivalent of a built in SU800.

Because the D5100 does not have a built in commander which is needed to trigger the SB-R200 Speedlight wirelessly, You will need the purchase the R1-C1wireless close-up speedlight system which has the SU-800 included in the kit. It works with your 18-105mm lens.

You do NOT need r1c1 (specifically, the SU-800). The built-in speedlight on the 7000 will activate SB-R200s, and so only the R1 kit is needed. The ring light will work with the D7000 too. (By the way, ya gotta love that 7000!)
