    I just ordered the Youngnuos and have heard awesome things about them, despite their price. I did quite a bit of research and my conclusion based on actual users (mainly Flickr and forums) was that the Yongnuos are the best bargain triggers.

    However, CyberSyncs and RadioPoppers are both awesome options, albeit easily over $100-$200 depending on how elaborate you need.

    I have 2 580EX IIs and a 580EX. I just use any one of them as master and trigger the others through IR. :hs:

    I think I'll be ordering some cactus V4's this week. I rarely shoot things where it is imperative that it triggers every single time and you can't go wrong for <$50

    Same here. Great poppers. You ever get yours to work reliably at 1/250? I always have to use 1/200.
