I have had these triggeres for about a two years or so now and I can honestly say that I would recommend them to anyone. (Providing they had a need for triggers) They come in two varieties, Canon/Nikon.
They came by recommendation from a chap in a Jessops store which is not a place I normally take advice from but turns out on this occasion that it was a good one.
Since getting them I have probably had less misfires than you can count on one hand. They have only refused to fire twice, once because I accidentally changed the channel they were on and the other because it was -10 degrees centigrade. I can’t really blame them for that seeing as I don’t even want to operate in that kind of temperature.
The cool thing about this system is that it is so incredibly simple to use. You put the trigger on your camera and put the receiver onto the flash and BAM! You are good to go! Also you can reverse the set up so you can mount the receiver to the camera and hold the trigger to remotely fire the camera. Pretty neat huh!? The basic kit comes with one trigger and one receiver but if you need to upgrade, you can also buy additional receivers. They work right out of the box so you don’t have to fanny about setting them up.
One thing I have noticed with these is that if you leave the batteries in the receiver and put them in your bag, they can go through batteries quite quickly, so it might be an idea to remove them when not in use.
There is one feature that I would really like to have from this kit and that is the ability to fire the flashes on the second curtain rather than the first. I really want that. BADLY!
Want one? Get one!
