The RadioPopper Jr2....
The RadioPopper Jr2 is a complete ground up redesign of the RadioPopper JrX. It is a huge improvement quality, usability and features. The Jr2 Transmitter supports 4 groups that can be instantly toggled on and o with buttons at the front of the unit.
The buttons are lit allowing the photographer to easily see what groups are toggled on and which groups are being adjusted. A single dial allows for stop accurate control of lights andstrobes. Groups can be adjusted one at a time or all at the same time.
Power can be adjusted in 1/3rd or 1/10th stop increments over 9 stops. The Jr2 Transmiter can act as a remote trigger by receiving remote triggering commands then ring the user's camera and lights.
The display is small enough to keep the Transmitter compact and low pro le while still large enough to clearly indicate the power levels of all lights. Thedisplay also includes a backlight that works automatically. The Jr2 Transmitter is reverse compatible with all existing RadioPopper products and gives stop accurate control of Alien Bees and speedlights when paired with the new Jr2 Receiver.
The Jr2 Transmitter also includes an exciting new feature, a memory function. The user can easily save up to 4 setups to be instantly recalled later. The savefunction remembers what groups are active and at what power levels. It can be used to save location setups or the most common setups in the user's studio.
The Jr2 Receiver includes a hot shoe directly on the unit and a light stand 1/4-20 on its bottom. The photographer no longer needs to use an RPCube or hot shoe connector to control power levels of speed lights. The new receiver now supports the Nikon SB-700 and 900 series of lights. The Jr2 Receiver can be purched with either a Canon style or Nikon style hot shoe.
The Jr2 Transmitter and Receiver operate using a pair of AAA batteries. The LCD displays indicate battery level so the user will never run out of power during an important shoot. Both units include a USB port for rmware upgrades and more features in the future.
Later this summer RadioPopper will be releasing 2 additional units that will allow the Jr2 Transmitter to stop-accurately control the output power of both Photogenic and Einstein lights.
