Excellent trigger – Seagull Remote Slave Trigger for Digital Camera SYK-5 Reviews

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

Pros:
Excellent product. I am using this with my Canon S3 IS which does not have a hot shoe so this works brilliantly for my external flash (from DX SKU: 6242). With the S3 you need to set the flash setting to manual for it to work.
Cons:
The build is not great (what can you expect at that price). On my one the back was not fixed properly and was coming out but a little bit of sticky tape fixed it for me (a better solution would be a bit of super glue). I think this is just a one off thing though
Other:
Compatible with the S3 IS and will be compatible with any camera with an onboard flash which you can set to manual.
Bottomline:
If you need one of these slave triggers, this would be the place to get it (its cheaper than from ebay).
