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.

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.

May I know why is using Pocket Wizard illegal? Thanks.
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.

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.
