    radio wireless trigger come in set, transmitter and receiver,
    connect transmitter to camera and receiver to flash, and you are good to go,

    but not sure what type radio wireless trigger you are getting and able to connect to your flash able or not?

    I have 3 YongNuo manual flashes, they have taken some rain and splashes and still working fine.

    think he is talking in terms of the rate of misfire, which I wouldn't know as I am using pw triggers.

    anyway TS, i have not heard of exakta my advice is to bring down to one of the shops like artworkfoto, reddot or sgcamstore and ask them straight / test.

    If ur camera can trigger the flash, yongnuo's transreceiver combo will b able to fire ur flash. Just that it's manual and no ttl (provided that flash of urs can ttl in the first place)

    no TTL even the flash have TTL function, unless the wire trigger also supports TTL function.
