About RadioPopper

The RadioPopper PX Receiver to take advantage of eTTL/iTTL, manual and High Speed Sync, all while avoiding the drawbacks of line of sight, short range and sunlight interference, you'll need a PX Receiver. For every off-camera flash you'll use, you will need a PX Receiver. Although the PX receivers and transmitters are compatible with Canon & Nissin, each receiver comes with a mounting bracket that is specific to either Canon or Nissin Flashes.

Great for older speedlights

Best off camera flash solution for Canon 580EX, 580EXII, 430EX. Extends flash range and allows use of all modifiers. The bad is that these eat batteries, and start to fail when battery power gets down to 60% or so. Taking batts out after every use extends life somewhat. Not the easiest to store and transport.

Love Radio Popper - don't buy used!

By

from Sayville, NY  -  Pro Photographer

Adorama asked me to review, so here goes... I decided to save a few $ and purchase a used unit from Adorama. One of my Popper receivers had failed me - not sure why yet, but it just stopped working. Anyway, the used unit arrived with dead batteries and with a defective Canon bracket. The receiver itself worked when I put good batteries in it, but I seriously expected to get "used" equipment, and not "defective" equipment. Since they gave me a full refund (including shipping), I will buy a brand new unit from them this time.

When they work, they're great.

When these work, they're great. When they don't, it can make you look like an idiot in front of a client and leave you looking for another solution. These little guys have a very specific order in which they must be turned on relative to your flashes and camera in order to work properly. They always seem to work when I'm just playing around with them (after several minutes of turning things off and on and various orders), but when I'm on a job, I can never seem to get them to work. That, of course, is embarrassing when you're trying to do a portrait shoot, or wasting a business person's time while trying to conduct a corporate headshot session. Bottom line, I don't think I would buy these again. They are in my gear bag when I go to a shoot, but I never count on them working and always have to have a backup plan.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  so I have to have both the receiver and transmitter correct...I thought that iwhas to get two units.?
MATT R  Radio Poppers are not sold as a "set". You must purchase each unit individually, (@$250ea!). So, if you want the typical system, which is 2 radio popper receivers and 1 transmitter, it will cost $750.00. Then you have to add 3 flash units, which must be compatible. You can't just mount any old flash unit. I have a Canon 550ex and 2 430's, so you can see this setup will cost you nearly $2000.00 They work great!

Jeff S  I am seriously considering buying these. 1 trans and 2 receivers. I run 430exii canon flashes. I have two questions. First, will the provided mount fit on my flashes as they are obviously smaller than the 580? Second, Do I have to have one of my flashes mounted on my camera to use the transmitter or can it be used on the camera as a stand alone so that all of my flashes can be used off camera with the system? Ok, 3 questions...If I can use the transmitter on the camera as a stand alone (without flash attached to the camera) will I need to buy any cords or anything to make it function?
GREG F  Yes the provided mounts will fit the 430EXii's. You will need a 580EXIii on camera to act as the master. I can't recall offhand but, I don't believe the 430EXii can act as the master. I have successfully used the pop up flash on my Canon T3i and T4i as the master. I had to fabricate a mounting bracket to make it work.
