5.0 out of 5 stars Price has come down! 6 Oct 2011
I previously reviewed this product quite negatively due to the price of 400 per pair, however the price has come down enough to warrant revisiting my review.

Although I do not own a Px pair, I have used them enough to test their full functionality, build quality, and every day usability - this year I've shot in the US, France, Ireland, and met tonnes of photogs, a few of whom had these.

Also I currently own the old RadioPoppers (the P1s), and have been shooting with them ever since shortly after they were released, when I bought mine. I was in love with the idea of preserving TTL signals in my triggers, and being able to trigger at 1/8000s (full power flash in sunlight) and these were the only units to do that.

The new Px pair are without a doubt better-built than the original, but they do essentially the same thing. Amazingly, however, my original P1s are still going strong, I shoot professionally and my P1s have outlasted one of my bodies... (I think I have a freak pair!) So there's probably something to be said about the build quality output from RadioPopper as a company.

Now these are at a reasonable price point, I highly recommend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strobist Dream! 17 Mar 2012
I have read the previous reviews and I agree with much that was said but the most important fact is that these things work amazingly well and I have never had any problems with any misfires or even the ETTL not being spot on every time. Most strobists like to work with manual flash but I am lazy and love ETTL and as i read in a gret book once why not let the technology work for you if the results are what your after. Well I use it with the 38cm and 60cm Lastolite Ezyboxes and I really dont understand the problems mentioned in the previous review. Ok so they the adaptor adds a bit of bulk to the flash but I easily fitted it to the ezybox mount simply by using the spare screw from the unbrella mount hole popping it through a 10p washer and this simply clamps through the standard ezybox mount. Also when you take it off you just screw the washer and screw back into the umbrella mount hole and it wont get lost. Ok its a bit of a faff but it wasnt made to work with Ezyboxs and im really happy with this quick and cheap adaption.

With lighting its all about the quality of light and the control. These things give you great control. They are AMAZING... I have used several manual Ebay triggers but these are in a diferent league. They are a proper pro product and yes you pay for that. I didnt buy from amazon (they didnt used to sell them) I bought direct from the radiopopper site. If they are too expensive here then buy direct. The RP service as has been mentioned is outstanding. I would say I would not hesitate to buy more of these in future but i think with the release of the new canon flash with built in radio triggers I will probably move to those next time im buying. But not because I can fault my poppers just because built in means less batteries to charge and less kit to carry about. But if you have older ETTL flashes then these are well worth the investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant! 11 July 2013
By Paolo
In all of the transmitter / receiver products I have tested in recent months, these little gems deserve a 5 star rating! I have found the customer support superb. They neatly pack into my kit bag and are forever coming in handy. Thank you radio poppers for a great product!

Verified Purchase
I bought this and two receivers to use with my Canon Speedlites. I wanted to use ETTL wirelessly and it was either Radio Popper or Pocket Wizards. As the latter have major issues with their use with the Canon "flagship" flash, the 580EXII, I would not buy them. That left the Radio Poppers.

Radio Popper is an excellent company and their support is very good indeed. I contacted them a couple of times with queries and they could not have been more helpful. The products are easy to use and set up very quickly. I found them to be 100% reliable and as far as this went they were flawless. They fired at distances way in excess of 100ft and through walls and other obstructions. Very impressive indeed.

Radio Poppers work by picking up a signal from the master unit, turning it into radio waves and then translating that into readable information for the slave unit to read. This means that the units have to be placed in a particular way on the each of the receiving Speedltes so they can communicate with them. To help with this Radio Popper have designed a base into which the speedlite slides and this holds the unit in optimum position to read the signals. ( sorry I'm not a scientist so that is my very basic understanding )

The problem I had with them was that the base into which the Speedlie and receiver slide isn't all that easy to use with modifiers. I found that to use it with the particular set up I had, I would have had to put an adapter onto my existing lastolite flash brackets which would have meant raising the flash a bit higher than I'd want from the bracket and hence firing into the top of an umbrella instead of nearer the centre. Alternatively I could have bought new brackets at around 50 for two.
