Very pleased

I bought two of the LATCMS, plus one of the JTS-20 AC slave strobes. All three exceeded my expectations. My only concern was that the house brand LTACMS lamps were marked "100 V" and I have 120 Volt service. [...] I decided to plug them in for 8 hours and see if they went POOF. They seem perfectly content. Like the JTS-20, they trigger if they are even remotely within sight of another flash, even facing the wrong way from the master flash. I am totally impressed with their sensitivity, ...

Not what is shown online

All the technical details aside, the product is shown as black and I received the bulbs in white. I did not get what I was expecting. Yes, they work. I have not had a chance to use them properly yet[...]

Used like stobes, very nice results

By

I have six of these on a total of two light stands and use them like stobes and fire them with pc cord. Works great, looks like I used expensive stobes. Buy stobes if you have the money, but if this is a hobby and money is a factor, these will do the trick. Not for rapid shots, but they work for a shot every ten sec's. So far I have great results with all Adorama named products, I hope they keep putting out great priced, quality items for the money challenged. They only have one light output, so you will have to figure your settings manually, so be prepared to take it off the green square.

Studio Flash

By

I use these in a dual light setup (umbrella reflectors) with continuous output 5300K lights. They give the extra "pop" that portraits need and even out shadows. I've seen similar strobes for 4X the price but these do the job just fine. When used as a slave the sensor is sensitive enough even if the master unit is a good distance away.

Perfect for that extra bit of light

By

These strobes are great to fill in lighting situations. Although not adjustable, for the price thet are very handy to have on hand at a shoot.

Great for the price

By

I am a serious DIYer and use these for everything. They are versatile since there are so many varieties of light sockets available for custom made lighting. I group these together if I need more output such as a main light. I also started modifying them slightly to include a push button on/off for the optical slave (see photo) which makes reconfiguring them much easier and no need to discharge them if they are charged and you don't want them firing on the next shot. It would be nice if this feature was built-in, but it's really simple to DIY.

Excellent Value

By

I ordered the AC socket (LTSKE) the Background Lite Stand (LTSB) and the Filter Set (LTACF) with the Master/Slave (LTACMS) and am very pleased with the set-up. I use the light for fill lighting or add filters to change background colors.

Great Light for Bargain Price

By

A great light with strong, consistent output for a bargain price. I bought this for use as a backlight, and it works very well in that capacity. The small size makes it easier to hide behind a subject. It is a bit trickier to modify, and I wish it had a variable output, but I knew it didn't going in--for that price I certainly didn't expect it. With a little DIY ingenuity, it's no problem.

Very nice light for cheap

By

I've been using these for product shots and portraits of the kids. They have strong output, and because they screw into A/C sockets you can do some interesting things (like taking a picture of a room with these in lamp sockets for a cool natural effect. They only have one level of output, but that's easily modified with umbrellas, socks, snoots etc. They are an excellent low cost flash solution. They trigger easily using my D40 with a SB400 in manual flash mode (even with the lowest power setting). One other thing not mentioned is they do include PC sync cords.
