Most Liked Positive Review

 

Cheap and simple does the trick

Nice and simple so it will not impress your gear head, tech geek and camera snob friends. The good news is it works dependably in the studio setting, and indoor locations. Just a simple, low power flash with a filter on it. The 2 AA batteries that power it last a long time in it.

Cheap and kind of junky- but it works!

By

I needed an inexpensive way to trigger the inexpensive slave flash units I bought from Adoroama, and this unit certainly looked like it fit the bill. At at under $30, I figured I'd be happy if it lasted a year. I unwrapped the flash, and gave the instructions a cursory once over. Other than being written in entertaining Engrish, it's not of much use- insert batteries, turn switch to on, wait until ready light goes on. I tested it, and it works just fine, but I do have two concerns: 1. The battery cover popped off as I was inserting the two AAs. The "hinge" is two tiny bumps that I suspect aren't going to last very long, given the material. Plan on eventually holding the door on with a piece of gaffer's tape. 2. The mounting bracket is pretty flimsy, too. Treat this gently, or you'll be using the including PC cord and a hot shoe adapter, and of course more gaffer's tape to hold it all together. Even with these flaws, it's hard to fault it at the asking price. You could modify a cheap old flash with an IR filter, or a deep red filter, and you'd probably end up spending almost as much. It's a useful gadget, a a decent value- if you treat it gently.

A bit tricky with a Sony !

By

I purchased this trigger for use with my two Flashpoint 320A's in hopes that it would free me up from being wired. At first I thought I may have wasted [$]I shoot with a Sony A300 and Sony decided that when they took over Minolta they would stick with the unique hotshoe for some reason !Well.... after stacking 3 adaptors onto my off camera folding flash bracket,I'm happy to say it works like a champ ! Just beware that if you too shoot with a Sony/Minolta you'll be needing a few extras in order to use this gem ! But its definitely worth it to be able to move about freely !

Great Trigger at a Great Price!

By

Worked perfect the first time I tried it and I'm counting on it lasting a very long time. It keeps me from being wired to the Slave Flashes. Now I can move around unteathered and get the shot that I need. Great Value for a Great Slave.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  can i use this if i'm using portable battery for my flashpoint monolights?
RON M  Mine wouldn't trigger my Flashpoint portable battery unit. Works very well with my AC studio units though.
Shopper  Hello I have three Flashpoint 620A and a Nikon D700 are the mono heads and camera compatible?
ANN R  Yes, just attach the remote trigger to the flash hotshoe connection on the camera and turn on the trigger. The monolights have to have the "sensor" switch turned on, and then when you fire the camera, the remote trigger will send a signal to the monolights and they will fire. You should hear beeps from each of the monolights that you are using, once they've fired.
