As a professional photographer for over 50 years and having changed to digital photography five years ago, I know all the problems associated with portable studio flash sync-leads, stands umbrellas etc etc. Having five flashguns accumulated over the years from the Canon 580ex, Vivitar, Sunpak etc I wanted a light weight portable system that I could carry with me that is very easy to set up, and wireless. These flash triggers worked perfectly with all my flashes every time even when fired in another room. Combined with the studio stand flash and umbrella holder they fulfilled my specific requirements perfectly.

This kit was a reasonable price and includes a transmitter unit that mounts on the camera and two receivers. The transmitter has two small switches that are used to set the channel should anyone else be using the same device. There is no battery compartment so I assume it uses a small watch type battery. On the top of the unit is a small button that can be used for test firing and a red LED to show it is doing something.

The two receivers are quite small and have a hot shoe for one flash unit, two small switches to set the channel and an on/off switch. These units take two AAA batteries which are easy to replace and obtain. Each of the receivers has a tripod mount on the bottom and a red LED light to show when a signal is received.
The bodies of all three units are made of plastic but because of the small size the all feel quite strong.

Do they work? Yes! Attached one receiver to my Pentax unit, one to the Sigma unit powered them up and then switched on the receivers. Switch them on before you power up your flash units as that will fire the flash. That is OK if you are not looking at the flash tube whilst you switch them on - can still see the tube after a few minutes! I have only done a few test shots so far and they have fired every time. Not sure what the effective distance is but 20ft through a wall did work. The instructions say they should work up to 20 metres.

I was initially very pleased with the trigger and receivers and was impressed at the actual range that they worked over (some 50ft). One of the receivers though has started to trigger itself and has essentially become redundant :( This is only after 5 trips out.

Does what it says on the box. This version of the PT-04 433MHz triggers seem better made than the older ones. They are shorter and don't have the adjustable foot, so they take up less space and feel less "bendy". They also have a threaded hole for a tripod so you can remover the hotshot adapter from you flash stand and screw it on directly to save more space.

I cannot say that I have and any problems with them at all. The hot shoes are a good tight fit and work perfectly.

I have only had one misfire in maybe 1000 shots, and that was with a reinforced concrete floor and 7-8m in between. Five or six other shots in the same situation worked fine though. Batteries were also not new, so if it had been a big problem I could have tried new ones.

4 Channel PT-04 Wireless Flash Trigger Control with Remote4 Channel PT-04 Wireless Flash Trigger Control Set with 3 x ReceiversPT-04A 2 in 1 Radio Wireless Flash & Studio Trigger x 2 Receivers for Nikon,Canon,Pentax,Olympus Systems
My ishoot wireless trigger worked fine for the limited use it had about 4 photo shoots and then when just over a year old stopped working. Changed battery etc but will still not work. It will fire the flash when the button on the top is pushed but not when the camera is fired even though the red transmit light comes on to indicate signal being sent. My camera works fine with other products.

These triggers are superb. Yes you have to set your flashes manually as they don't do ettl but I have a lastolite 3metre cord for when i want that. The fact that you can fire them anywhere and they are so cheap means that they are superb value for money. Also using one of these yo ucan use any tripod as another flash mounted lighted stand. Well worth buying.

Very reasonably priced, albeit rather flimsily made, but so far, after a few weeks of shooting, they've fired every time. The hotshoes on the receivers don't hold the flashgun firmly, but the connections are fine. It's easy to drain the battery on the receivers by forgetting to turn them off - there's no 'on' light to remind you. And they only have a tripod connection underneath, so if you normally attach the flashgun to a hotshoe fixing, then you'll need to buy a separate adaptor. But infinitely cheaper than the better known brands, so far so good

A far stretch from what I would call reliable, they do work, however. Sometimes. Indoors they seem fairly consistent, firing 9/10 times. Outdoors (where I do most of my shooting) is where these fail miserably. The range is abysmal, maybe 10ft on a good day. Even when working within this short range they will trigger less than 50% of the time. As stated in another review it does seem that they work more often when pressing the "test" button than when actually taking a photograph. Keeping in mind that these are cheap I can see their use for people first getting into off camera flash. They do work, to an extent but I feel you could probably get much better for a similar price. That said you could probably get a lot worse too. I couldn't recommend these to anyone who requires any sort of consistency in their triggers but for someone who is happy to simply try again should they not work they'll do, I guess.
