These wireless triggers offer a simple but easy way to do off camera flash, and an alternative to optical slave flashes where line of sight might be an issue. These triggers are "manual" in other words you have to set the exposure on the camera and flash output on each flash yourself, however for many tasks this isn't a problem as this is all you might need. Flash sync speed will be the same as the camera (ie these won't support HSS high speed sync)
In each kit is a transmitter, this has a single hot shoe sync port for mounting on the camera, a test button on top and on the underside are the 4 (two position) switches this allows you to select a channel for the transmitter. Inside this unit is a "23A 12 volt" battery this is a cell that is around half the size of an AAA battery (length wise) they are relatively inexpensive to replace to access the battery you remove a small screw on the underside of the unit.
The receivers take 2 x AAA batteries on the base is a metal thread for a tripod screw, on the top are the channel switches (same as the receiver two positions and 4 switches aka 16 channels) A power on off switch, and of course the hot shoe (this is a standard type and will fit all common makes though see note about Sony) On both the transmitter and receivers are red LED lights that blink when the signal is received. You also get a small pc sync cable thus it is possible to fire the transmitter via the pc sync port if your camera has one
Notes for Sony users:
Those who have the new "multi interface shoe" (A58/A77II/A99 and the newer E mount bodies) which is similar to a normal ISO hot shoe can use the triggers.Read more ›
They arrived quickly and well packaged. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the build quality for the price. I intend to use them for home indoor use only and I think that treated properly they will last well unless they have an electronic failure. I thought that they would be bigger than they are having read other reviews but they are just about right. I have tested them with my Canon DSLR and two manual flashguns and they work perfectly. As I have said, time will tell as far as the longevity of innards are concerned. As they are I can thoroughly recommend them to try your hand at some indoor flash portraiture. I have given 5 stars as I can not fault them in the slightest especially when compared to much more expensive models.
Maximum range is a little lower than announced, but i already expected it.
The trigger set works but two receivers arrived with a permanently 'on' power switch.
The four receivers each require two AAA batteries. The transmitter uses a small 12 volt battery of the type often used for wireless keyfobs; this battery can only be replaced by unscrewing the transmitter cover. The wireless link can use any one of 16 possible channels, chosen using four little switches, but this feature is unlikely to be necessary most of the time.
I've only used these items at short-range -- never more than three metres between transmitter and receiver. Subjectively I'd say that the receivers have triggered correctly at least 29 times out of 30. I presume that the occasional miss-fires that I have experienced are due to interference from other radio transmitters in the vicinity. In any case, for me, miss-fires have never been a problem since it has always been possible to simply retake the shot.
The receivers each have a small on-off slide-switch; on two of the receivers in the set I received the switch does nothing -- the receiver is functional regardless of how the switch is set, and consequently I expect that receiver to drain its batteries more quickly than the others (unless of course I take the batteries out between sessions of use).
The transmitter doesn't need a distinct on-off switch since it is only 'on' when the trigger is operated. It does, however, have a manual trigger button which can be pressed at any time to trigger the flashes.
I find myself a little disappointed about the broken switches but, overall, I'm satisfied with the set.
The receivers are intended to work with flash guns that offer only a low voltage (12 volts or less) to the trigger terminals.Read more ›
