Best primer is to try and use it.

The flash will often see the light bounced off something else like a wall or flower. Tougher the farther away it is or the brighter it is, like in full sunlight. You just need to play with it and see.

The intensity of the RC control signal can be varied, so if not triggering properly then the camera signals via the clip-in flash can be made brighter to make that "hidden" or remote R series flash a bit more reliable.

On the camera in RC mode, press OK/Start to get the RC menu (and use INFO button to rotate to it if not appearing initially with OK button). On the right side of the RC menu, 2nd item down by default appears as "LO", change this to "MID" or "HI" to get more signal power.

RTFM page 97.
