    This is a very inexpensive option for wireless flash triggers involving modern digital cameras. 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 adjustment just right for your camera. If... Read more

    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. you have to trim the delay for the preflash: I use the red eye mode. Keep in mind that you loose the the TTL (throught the lens) is... Read more

    Cheap, easy to use. Allows to experiment with off camera flash mounted on a light stand [metal thread] - PC sync connector that makes it useful with cameras that does not have hot shoe. It does not have a system to block the flash on it. That would be useful for different small flashes. I didn't... Read more

    Cheap, no batteries. Very easy to use and rather well built. Looks very professional. 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 10 fires too late. On my D80, a... Read more

    - works with most point and shoots (at least all I have tried) - easy way to experiment with of camera flash - allows to use slave flashes with cameras without hot shoe - metal thread to mount it on tripods - rather poor build quality (some glueing was needed on all units I received) - don't work...

    It works. I've set G9 to Manual flash mode, Minimum output (Red-eye reduction is off.) SYK-5 is set to flash (not redeye) mode. I have a homebrew white plastic diffuser (round 8" food container) rigged in front of flash. Loverly diffuse light... Had to try out various settings on SYK-5, G9 a... Read more

    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 lowest level, it's not working with the... Read more
