Best Bang for Buck

This unit is does its job flawlessly. After ten test shots, the unit fired the flash 10 of 10 times from 40ft. I haven't tried any distances farther than that yet. Out of the box there were a couple challenges. First, the PC cord has a submini phone jack at the other end. However, the receiver will only accept a miniphone jack. So buy a submini to miniphone adapter, to connect to speed lights, prior to purchase. Next the OEM battery was dead. I purchased one for that world famous electronic s...

This unit is does its job flawlessly. After ten test shots, the unit fired the flash 10 of 10 times from 40ft. I haven't tried any distances farther than that yet. Out of the box there were a couple challenges. First, the PC cord has a submini phone jack at the other end. However, the receiver will only accept a miniphone jack. So buy a submini to miniphone adapter, to connect to speed lights, prior to purchase. Next the OEM battery was dead. I purchased one for that world famous electronic store we all know and love. So my expense was an additional [$]. The dials are very small but so are the transmitter and the receiver. There is no "ON" LED on the transmitter. The performance of the unit out weights the minor inconveniences by far.

Sent it back

The unit was shipped with a wrong and faulty cable. The manufacturer would not correct the problem and Adorama would correct it at my expense. Returned the unit and purchased Power Wizard.

Great Features In a Small Package

By

from Albuquerque, NM  -  Pro Photographer

This is a great product. It works as advertised. Your flash will need to be PC compatible. We have used this set at weddings and other special events. This product will require you to have mastered both your camera and flash system setup. This product does not provide E/ITTL. The whole lighting setup will need to be in manual for optimum results. But! If you have mastered your lighting setup, you can obtain lighting results superior to PW's or RP's.

2 years and still going

By

from Iowa  -  Pro Photographer

These thing work, There are some down falls but anything that can give me almost two years of service without fail is a good product. The down sides, they feel flimsy and a little too lightweight But have never broke one yet. also the transmitter does not attach to my hot shoe very well with no way to secure or tighten it. I have unknowingly knocked it off of the camera 3 or 4 times and twice in the snow. Blew the snow off and kept working. That was 8 months ago or so and it still works week after week. All in all a good product with flaws that can be worked around.

Skyports work very good

By

from Suburb of San Diego  -  Pro Photographer

The Elinchrome EL Universal Skyports work very good. I use them for portraits with Vivitar 285's on manual plugged into Quantum batteries, 'usually one into a Chimera softbox as the main light and another direct off to the side/behind. It's nice to quit using long PC cords where one of the cords has gone bad and won't fire, etc. They work great indoors or out. You have to connect everything and turn the Skyports on last, after turning on the flashes and batteries. They're real small and the antennas seem pretty flimsy but they haven't broke on me yet. They're a lot cheaper than Pocket Wizards

Works Flawlessly

By

from ATL  -  Photo Enthusiast

Great for action sports pictures. I mainly take BMX and skateboarding photos and these things have been great. Not one misfire and after three long photo sessions I still haven't needed to recharge the receiver. If you have an SB-600 you'll have to buy a special miniphone to hot shoe adapter. The PARAMOUNT adapter DOESN'T work on the SB-600.

This is a nice alternative if you're not ready to spend the cash on the PocketWizard line.
