Loose fit in many sockets


from North coast, OH  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I like this with an old Novatron 330 power pack (from 1960's!)that has a tight socket -but it won't work on anything else. It will not fit tightly into new extension cords, did not fit tightly into Speedotron unit. New cords and sockets expect thicker contacts on the plugs -these skinny prongs on the Wein don't fit tight so contact isn't reliable. Too often the flash doesn't fire. Wein needs to update prongs to contemporary standards.

Simple, Effective Trigger


from Park City, UT  -  Photo Enthusiast

The Wein L8 Micro Slave H-Prong effectively and reliably triggers my Novatron 400ws strobe. I use this indoors and have never seen a case where my other small speedlight did not trigger the Wein. To be fair, my lighting setups are typically for portrait or product work so I rarely place the lights more than 20 feet apart. As such, I don't know how well the reliability holds up when you're working with significant space between your master and slave lights. I also have not tried using this outdoors. However, if you're working inside, with relatively close distances, I don't believe this can be beat for the price.

Questions about this item:

joe s  Will this product allow me to trigger the flash of a Novatron 400 W/S kit using the built-in flash of my Nikon D300?
DAVID L  Short answer: I'm pretty sure it will work. Long answer: I have been using this slave on a Novatron 400 W/sec pack with excellent results. My setup consists of 3 or 4 strobe heads with the pack on the floor fairly close to the model. I have used it with 3 different DSLR Nikons (D70s, D3100, and D7000) all using the built-in flash as a trigger -- set the flash for manual control at 1/8 to 1/16 power. It has worked very well and seems very reliable with the D7000 and 1/16th power. There are only two issues to be aware of: 1) If you block the slave from "seeing" your built-in flash, with your hand or a lens body, then obviously, it won't work. 2) The slave sensor itself is polarized and can be inserted in the sync socket two ways -- one way won't work. Just power down and turn it around and try again. I recommend it. Should work well with any camera that has a flash and no extra wires.
Shopper  Just got this product. Assumed you plug into any wall socket and it fires off with on or off camera flash. It is not doing this. Am I doing something wrong?
DENNIS H  Sorry, didn't check my e-mail for a couple of days. But the slave doesn't plug into a wall socket but into the battery unit where the lights plug in, [where the sync cord plugs in]. I hope it didn't fry it, but anyway good luck, mine works great.
