    Flash Trigger

    Hi Folks,

    I have no experience of that one I am afraid but after doing a lot of research I bought the Yongnuo RF602. It is extremely good value and performance and also acts as a remote trigger if you have a pc sync cord and reverse the transmitter and receiver that works from over 100ft away.

    I have Yongnuo speedlites too and they are perfectly ok if your budget doesn't run to pocket wizards and canon/nikon flash's

    Cheers

    Hi Steve,
    The Yongnuo RF602 is one I have also looked at but am leaning towards the Phottix Strato mainly because the hotshoe on the top of the transmitter permits TTL from the camera through to the flash.

    Don't have 'em, but they certainly look interesting. Definitely a better choice than the Rf-602s, and more similar to the Cactus V5s and the RF-603s. Definite advantages over both, since the V5's pass-through isn't TTL, and the 603s don't have locking feet, still use PITA dip switches for channel setting (although. 16 channels, not 4), that on/off switch is still (maddeningly) in the wrong place, and still have that 12V sync limit. Yongnuo really dropped the ball this generation around.
