4.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable at the price, 22 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: RF-602 Wireless Remote control Switch & Studio Flash Trigger combi System for Nikon D700,D300,D300s,D200,D3,D2 F5 Kodak Fuji & 10 Pin System DSLR Camera as MC-30 (Electronics)
I wanted a wireless trigger for my entry-level studio flash. A Pocket Wizard system would have cost more than my 3-flash system! I purchased the version for use with the Nikon D700 (10-pin connector).
This is a good balance between quality and price, judging by the many online reviews.
The English in the instruction leaflet is "interesting" but is as good as a lot of the English in online comments complaining about it.
It works exactly as advertised; better, actually, because it happily triggers both my SB600 and SB27 in the hot shoe. The instructions claim that it doesn't suppoprt the SB600. What this means, maybe, is that it won't wake up the SB600 from standby. You have to set the SB600/SB27 to manual, though.
There are some nice touches for a system at this price. The receiver has a 3-pin socket and the leads for this have a threaded locking ring. The receiver-to-Nikon lead also has a threaded locking ring for the Nikon end.
A Nikon manual cable release with a 10-pin plug costs more than this wireless system (and won't trigger studio flashes).
The transmitter doesn't have a locking lever or nut to hold it in the camera hot shoe. This is not a problem on my kit; the transmitter is very light and stays firmly in the D700 hot shoe.
Ok, it's not as robust as a Pocket Wizard setup. So: exercise a little care and save your cash!
