About Flashpoint 4 Channel

• Designed to simultaneously trigger monolights or strobes wirelessly. There are four channels so each channel can avoid interference from others working the same job. It will also keep others at the event from firing your lights with their point and shoot cameras. Because of its low power consumption the transmitter can be fired 20,000 times on a single 3 volt, #BYUL23A battery. There is only 0.01mA of current so it may be safely used with all digital and film cameras.

This set is not compatible with older sets. Please check with our staff.

Simple and works

Works great, well worth the freedom it provides in the studio. No more hit or miss cable connections. Use this on one of my Flashpoints and the other is set on slave. Not one misfire, love it. What a bargain.

Great Unit-has design/quality weaknesses

Received the unit and the transmitter internal 12 Volt battery was stone cold dead. Had to tear through the QC seal to remove the screw to get inside the unit. Replaced the battery and the unit worked properly only when mounted to my camera's hot shoe or when I press the "Test" button on top of the transmitter. The enclosed PC sync cord was defective as it has an open circuit. Replaced it with an identical unit (I had on hand) and now the unit fires my monolights intermittantly. The 1/8 inch ...

Received the unit and the transmitter internal 12 Volt battery was stone cold dead. Had to tear through the QC seal to remove the screw to get inside the unit. Replaced the battery and the unit worked properly only when mounted to my camera's hot shoe or when I press the "Test" button on top of the transmitter. The enclosed PC sync cord was defective as it has an open circuit. Replaced it with an identical unit (I had on hand) and now the unit fires my monolights intermittantly. The 1/8 inch phone jack (on the internal printed circuit board) either has a cold solder connection or is contacting the phone pin intermittantly. I will be using this unit with the PC sync cord most of the time, so I need a reliable connection through the transmitter's phone jack and PC sync cord. If I was using the transmitter mounted to my camera's hot shoe all of the time, the only issue I would have with this unit is the dead battery right out of the box.

Perfect for Budget Flash Setup

By

from Indy  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Use two with pair of Adorama "Flashpoint Budget Studio Monolight Flash, 300 Watt Seconds" to complete the "budget" studio lighting kit without spending more for the radios than for the lights. ++Easy to setup, no interference (so far) from other radios/sources, only used with camera ~20ft from lights (so I don't know about the 65ft rating). --One of my two transmitters stopped working via the hot-shoe, still works via the PC-cable; of course, I only need one transmitter for the two receivers.

Works very well. Great price!

By

from Alabama  -  Pro Photographer

Easy to operate but would not recommend using this with more than 1 photographer using the same remote control. They do interfere with each other. Would buy again even when on different channels.

Wireless trigger

By

from El Paso  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this product for Portraits, Weddings, Quinceaneras,Little league, Karate Demos, Grank kids football, and it allows me to photograph right there in the park. Along with my Flashpoint monolights and power battery pack it is plain and simple Awsome!!!! Got it last week, have shot over 600 shots and missifired once....the moonlight was OFF!! Go figure!! Doesn't get any better than this. Worth the price and much satisfied with quality and results.

Works but connection is a bit jiggly

By

from Orlando, FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I use this with a DG600 monolight. It's been completely reliable but if I angle the light up at all the power cord from the trigger tends to work itself loose and shut down the light. I ended up wrapping a couple layers of electrical tape around the plug.

Works as advertised

By

from San Antonio TX  -  Semi-Professional

I took a chance and glad I did. Fires immediately; no lag time. I use with Flashpoint 320Ms. So far it is reliable and I will continue to use. Best bang for the buck. No TTL, manual only but no problem for me, I always use flash meter to get the light just right. If you are on a budget you can't beat them, but I find these are a great substitute for more expensive brands. They are not built real sturdy but I purchased three sets in case of any failure. So far no issues. I plan on buying the DC version too. Works great in studio and out doors as well. Very good distance.

A must buy!!!

By

from Cloquet, MN  -  Professional

I was skeptical at first about using this product because I had been using a remote infrared trigger for so long. I bought this and I love it. It fires fast there is no lag with it like the other triggers i have used.. I no longer have to worry about missing important shots.

Very good product so far...

By

from Hampton Roads  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I bought this item to go along with a new strobe and did not want to be tethered by any wires, so a radio trigger was an absolute must. So far the ease and convenience of this item has been wonderful.
