    Just went down to Ruby Photo,Bowens agent to enquire about Wireless Triggers and was
    recommended their Impact model.Am still using their Bowens 400Ds but have not decided
    yet.Perhaps you could check it out from them.Cost 100.00 per set- trigger/transmitter.

    actually i wanted to reply pocket wiz cos they are the best things around.
    i've tried many other brands basically none gave me as much confidence as the PW.

    may i know why no PW for you?

    think you recommended the wrong thing.

    reachme2003 is looking for a wireless flash trigger, not a remote shutter release.

    pocket wizards, Bowens or Quantum all are very expensive, left only Elinchrom Skyport, about $300 plus,
    you want anything cheaper are all china made flash triggers.


    jeanie, pocket wizards sold by Cathy are suppose to be export set, it is "illegal" to use pocket wizard in local.

    I wanted to tell you if you are using it studio, why you need a PW? IR trigger guo liao lar...

    but just remember that your "studio" very big hor, can let people jump here jump there, better use PW lar...

    I'm using these http://www.alienbees.com/cybersync.html Less then half the price of PWs and just as reliable
    The payment process is tedious though for international customers

    It's some technicality about radio frequency and what-have-you. One of those rarely enforced things, like how it's illegal to cycle on pavements but people don't care.

    rarely enforced, but with high frequency usage, iDA may just pay you a visit.

    even in closed environment and inside a room, radio frequency can still pass through normal concrete. so unless you're in a customised steel-reinforced room, illegal use of radio transmitting equipment can still be tracked.
