    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:This is a very inexpensive option for wireless flash triggers involving modern digital cameras. Cons:Can fall apart easily, but goes back just as easily. Does not work in sunlight or with bright overhead lights. Takes some finagling to get the secondary flash... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Works well, fit on a tripod and can carry a standard flashlight. The cell goes on the front, you have to take it in account when you put the flashlight on the scene. Cons:you have to trim the delay for the preflash: I use the red eye mode. Keep in mind that you loose th... Read more

    Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:finally found a small gadget to trigger my canon 430exii and still can use with my pop up flash to trigger it! Was using a Rf remote control to trigger my canon flash externally and popup flash not able to be used when trigger is mounted on camera's hotshoe. Cons:it f... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Cheap, no batteries. Very easy to use and rather well built. Looks very professional. Cons:It will depend on the camera you own, if it will work properly. It trigges my old Metz Mecablitz allright, but it is always late. Even with delay on minimum, you will get 8 out of 1...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Confirmed working with my Canon 430EX. The flash can be triggered continuously without turning off and on the flash. That was a problem haunting SYK-3 and most optical triggers on the market today. Confirmed that even with the delay dial turned down to the lowes... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Easy to set up...well there is no setup really, just insert the flash, and off you go. The flash sync port is extremely useful. I use mine with the Yinyan BY-28ZP bought from DX. The hot shoe on that flash is a little finicky, so the pc-sync port is really nic... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Wonderful trigger hot shoe Easy to use and fast to set up. Just slip your flash unit in the hotshoe and start shooting. Cons:The red-eye function is a bit problematic. It's just a simple delay but you have to experiment a little before you get it right. TTL flas... Read more
