When have more flashlights buy a few more. Because easy to use don't need some extra work using ... Read more
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 you need to trigger multiple indoor strobes, get this.... 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) light measurment. there is nothing to explain how it works,... 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 try the delay function because I don't need it. It works ... Read more
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. it fores when my pop up flash fires pre-flash!! Still trying to figure out how to disable the ... 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, unusable with internal flash. External flash is in repair ... 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 with my 450D in pre-flash mode with shutter times shorter ... Read more
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 & Vivitar flash, but it wasn't too painful. Occasionally ... 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 TTL preflash. According to other reviewers, the preflash ... Read more
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 nice to trigger that flash.
The hot shoe works fine with my 430EX.
It's a Seagull - good brand ... Read more
