  • It works!

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    It works with my 580EX II. No problem at all. My test shows the range is around 13 meters with 2x NiMH battery fully charged in the receiver.

    The build quality is ok for the price.

    Sync speed is up to 1/200 or 1/250 depends on the distance.

    Cons:

    I have experienced many misfires at distance of 2-3 meters. Sometime 2-3 after each other. It is very strange. It seemed that all the misfires happened when I took the shot. Every time I tested it by just pressing the shutter release, it fired. Just like it played game with me. I will do some more tests to see whether another channel will give better results.

    580EX II is quite heavy. It made me worrying about my expansive gear standing on a light stand because the construction of the receiver is not very strong though the shoe mount is made of metal.

    OtherThoughts:

    May need to buy some more receivers. Can DX offer standalone receivers?

    Bottomline:

    It works and it is cheap.
