Works great, but very loose fitting
This worked great to wirelessly control my SB-600 from my Nikon D50. I definitely had to have both the camera and flash in Full Manual mode, and no TTL! My only big complaint is how loose my flash fits in the device, and also how very loose the device fits in my flash stand. The device does have the option to attach a tripod screw, so that is a plus, but very careful handling is required.

I am a professional wedding photographer and I bought this as a back up to my wireless triggers. I was quite surprised to find that the unit barley ever triggered a flash even with another flash pointed right at it in a dimly lit room. I have other triggers similar to this one that can even work outdoors in the shade. This unit was completely ineffective.

I have a Bower flash that I haven't been able to use with my Nikon SB700 until now. I am very happy with the product: for the price that I paid and the fact that it works great. My Bower flash fits perfectly on the slave unit's mount and it doesn't need a flash stand for the tripod. Keep in mind that your flash will fire each time it senses a flash (even while using a point-and-shoot camera).
These units work best with older flashes in direct view of the flash that is triggering it. I could not get them to work around walls or at a longer distance.
with this unit it allows you to remotely fire other flash units at very little cost. you can add these to as many lites as you have ,and don't have as many problems that you would have with other trigger units.
I wanted a slave that would operate older SLR flash equipment. I have a Pentax kR and the built in flash will sync my Sigma DG 610 as well as an old Canon SLR Speedlite and even some older flashes. It does take some playing with to get everything to work correctly, but what can you expect for something under $20.
This little unit allows quick set up of back, side, or fill light anyplace you might be. Works with any flash unit brand I've tried it with at angles and distances that are very generous. Just be sure to pack it in the prime gear bag where you can find it when you have a use for it...
I use this product to trigger a unit that has no built in slave. It works well for my purpose.
.... i need something to fire 2 old 283's... these are working great...
Not for Canon Cameras
Just works, really useful
The product works well and was very inexpensive.
