These triggers are a phenomenal in my view, be sure to buy the controller unit as well though which really brings them into their own. They are as good if not better than much more expensive alternatives, they are reliable, uncomplicated and the controller is so quick to navigate and use. Someone said TTL didn't work, well it does, and perfectly! TTL remember is a function of the cameras metering system, so whatever power output settings your camera feeds the unit controls the light intensity... The triggers simply feed the signal info to the strobes, on my Nikon D800 it was spot on every time. The controller unit also has infrared focus assist, a huge feature missing on more expensive units, flash compensation is accessible with simple right or left arrow click.

I used them at a wedding recently and was under a lot of pressure to deliver in a ridiculously short time frame... Normally I wouldn't even consider a complicated lighting setup if I didn't have these triggers.

I managed to assemble two softboxs and the triggers in no time at all (a minute or two max), there are no multilevel menus to navigate, simply set to TTL from the controller unit and fire away. They hardly missed a beat the whole day, I had only 1 misfire the entire day, easily rectified. They could do with a proper instruction manual, but its so intuitive, you can figure out most things in minutes... I simply watched a youtube tutorial to fill in any blanks, but that's a minor gripe.

Yongnuo has really done the business with these controllers especially when you consider the price... I would recommend these with absolute confidence, especially for Nikon shooters. They outperform many other brands in features and in operating range and price! Simply quality professional kit!
