    these look so damn promising, i've been asking around locally for people that want my cactus triggers.

    i really dig the "wireless ettl sensor" gizmo. pretty f'n sweet.

    lemme get this right, it piggybacks on a ST-2 or a flash, take the IR signal, converts it to radio, and sends the signal to other flashes to fire?

    minus the price, how is this better than PW's?

    Yeah..I dont understand a lot about this stuff since I never use them, but this doesnt mean anything if youre shooting with the majority of large strobes, right?

    These really only work the the Canon/Nikon flashes, dont they?

    The only strobe I know of (and I could be totally wrong) thats remotely adjustable are the Elinchroms and thats only through the use a skyport. Could this even fire strobes? Or even if it could, it couldnt manipulate the output of something that was capable like an elinchrom strobe, could it?

    this popper thing is confusing me cause the 430s and the 580s are already TTL capable when wireless using the ST-E2 or 580 and a transmitter.

    the IR shit that the ST-E2 & flahes use are unreliable in a lot of situations. By transmitting RF, they become more reliable but still retain the ETTL

    I heard the cactus ones are good if you do the antenna mod. You can also do the battery pack for the rx so you dont have to buy those other batteries.

    then yes they would be overkill. But most of us use them, and the built in IR shit is garbage.

    if you're shooting with strobes, the exposure rarely changes, so PW or another trigger is all you need. These do both

    They will only be able to change the power too compatible systems, so canon and nikon for now anyways
