Optical and radio AWL can be used together. Radio flash control is provided by a WR-R10 connected to the camera, optical control by an SU‑800 wireless Speedlight commander or an SB‑910, SB‑900, SB‑800, SB‑700, or SB‑500 flash unit mounted on the camera accessory shoe.

  • Before proceeding, establish a wireless connection between the radio-controlled flash units and the WR-R10 (Establishing a Wireless Connection).

  • If an SB‑500 is mounted on the camera accessory shoe, select [Optical/radio AWL] for [Flash control] > [Wireless flash options] in the photo shooting menu; with other flash units or the SU‑800, this option is selected automatically.

  • The only option available for [Remote flash control] will be [Group flash].

  • Choose a group (A–F) for each of the remote flash units. Place optically-controlled flash units in groups A through C and radio-controlled units in groups D through F (to display options for groups D through F, press 1 or 3 in the [Group flash options] display).
