  • About as cheap as these things get

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

    Pros:

    I haven't seen these cheaper anywhere else - even ebay equivalent V2s triggers are considerably more. What's more, this receiver takes AAA batteries instead of the CR2 batteries they often require, which is a plus for me personally.

    Range seems to be good, and I've had no misfires to speak of (except when I was wiggling the flash on the receiver, which is hardly the fault of the hardware)

    Cons:

    Build quality is cheap, as you'd expect for the price. Contacts were a little unreliable, and it took a bit of fiddling initially to get the receiver firing the flash properly. All seems okay now, though.

    OtherThoughts:

    Separate receivers would be a great addition to DX, to run multiple flashes. That said, these are pretty cheap, so maybe it doesn't really matter that much :)

    Bottomline:

    These seem on a par with all the other cheap triggers around, and they're cheaper.
