Excellent Triggers

This trigger set is amazing. Very easy to use. Just set the channel and pop, it works. Tested distance and these are good until atleast 100ft. I use this on my Flashpoint II 620A. I also use this on my SB600 speedlight to optically trigger the 620A and SB900. It works because it eliminates the pre-flash so all the lights fire exactly at the same time. I need to buy another receiver for the 620a so I can fire it when doing events where there are other flashes being used. These work just as goo...

POOR QUALITY

By

from Salt Lake City, UT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Has a range of about 3 inches. Replaced battery and followed all manufacture instructions and still could not get it to work in my small in home studio. Sending this hunk of junk back tomorrow. Guess I will have to suck it up and buy the pocket wizard

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.

Works great on controling the light and syncs with white balance. Portraits look amazing and light effects are spot on.

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.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
REID C  I had tried other low cost salves but they were hit and miss. I purchased this Radio Slave for my Adorama 400 watt DC Strobe Light Kit that I purchased sometime ago. The Radio Slave works perfect.
Gabriela G  Hi, I had recently got 2 Flashpoint DG600 300AC/DC Monolight, Blue and a don´t want any more wires in my life. I own a Canon xsi, I wanna know if this radio remote its the one I need and will work with my camara, which doesn't have a PC sync connection, will it? tks
JORGE M  It should, you place the trigger on the hot shoe of the camera, and the receiver in the flash, and it should work wirless Greetings
Shopper  After sitting in a case for 6 months, I tried the hot shoe transmitter and nothing happens. Does it take a battery?
KEITH K  Yes, both the transmitter and receiver use batteries. The transmitter uses a watch style battery. If you push the button on top and do not see the LED light up, then the battery is probably dead. There is a small screw close to the Dip switch that needs to be removed to access the battery.
