Open up new lighting – YongNuo Wireless Remote Flash Trigger for Canon 430/580 EX DSLR Digital Camera Reviews

posted by derrick on 10/16/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Allows you to use your flashes off camera and cable free.
Let's you creatively use your lighting.
Cons:
The price is higher than it used to be.
Cannot get the receivers on their own.
Does not have PC sync ports. I had to buy adapters separately. Not a deal killer, but much easier to mount your flashes with it's own hot shoe.
Doesn't fit properly on a Canon 40D. I need to use a rubber band to get it to contact properly on the flash shoe. Not a deal breaker for this price though. Had no problems on a Rebel XT.
Other:
I freaking love these things! Let's me use my flashes with light modifiers on light stands mobile outdoors, indoors, anywhere.
Bottomline:
Buy theses, and open up a new world of photography for yourself.
