    Great deal

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It has been the purchase of 2012 for me. Both, transmitter and receiver are compact but effective. I've tried them only indoor, and I've got a great result of them. Shooted around 100-150 times and still have had no missing try.
    Cons:
    The connector of the receiver to the camera should be done with metal and not with plastic. This plastic ending seems to be as ...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Works every time, no misfires. Small transmitter with test button, several frequencies to choose from if you work in a studio with more than one photographer who uses this item.
    Cons:

    Works as expected.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Good radio flash trigger set. Easy to use, easy to mount on the camera (the transmitter), and easy to use with flash and light stand. 4 channels options to use. Main thing about it - CHEAP! I found that where I live these were sold for around 50USD! Ma...
    Cons:
    Receiver is large. When mounted on light stand with the desire to use a shoot through or soft box, this means that flash is in ...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Useful device for my camera, i was desperate to have it when i found it here. Build quality is ok, it feels good in your hand, the switch works ok, but i have no need to change it when i chose the channel i wanted.
    Cons:
    Well yes it did misfire but only lets say 2-3 per cent of the time. The only bad thing for me is the battery in the transmitter...

    Works well

    posted by SteveCass on 04/19/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    As opposite to what GavinTing said in his review: IT DOES work out of sight, this device is using RF and not infrared. So you CAN do back lighting. I put the flash in another room and tested and it flash every time flawlessly.
    Cons:
    Cheap construction material. The battery cover is hard to open, it feels like its going to crack open and break apart.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Cheaper than your average Pocket Wizard Does what it's supposed to do Can be mounted on a tripod as opposed to a light stand (could be a con, depending on your gear)
    Cons:
    Receiver LOOKS like it's going to crack under the weight, yet so far so good Receiver will heighten your flash in about 10-15cm...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Cheap Light Receivers use AA's not hard to find Reliable (haven't had a misfire yet, when I do it's always due to my flash batteries getting low and not recycling quick enough)
    Cons:
    Build quality is a little cheap but haven't actually had an issue yet, just feels lightweight and you wonder if you should moun...
