    I am getting a sample in the next few days to test and if they are good I will like to offer them to you at cost.

    description removed due to China not matching products. But here is a photo

    Oh, nice.

    Can you just get the receivers, or is it a package deal w/ one receiver one remote?

    I'm in for the receivers.

    I would be in for sure, if the cost is appropriate. I am always weary about China/knock off stuff though...

    shutter remote not found. That's a flash cord not a shutter cord.

    edit: methinks the pic has been replaced. I'll slowly back out of this thread.

    I'd be interested if it all works out well. Id want 1 transmitter and maybe 2-3 receivers depending on price

    They look exactly like the Cactus triggers, and if they also come from China, im willing the bet they are the same

    Yeah, it looks just like the cactus triggers... I couldn't be happier with mine, but I just got a 2nd flash...

    So I'm thinking I'd grab 4-5 receivers to make room for flash expansion as well as powering flashes and strobes if i'm shooting in the studio...

    (these things can fire strobes, right? I use dynalites and white lightnings... anyone know??)

    oooh, good point...

    I'd need to know if they work with strobes, AND if they work with the v2s reciever... Which is the one that works with the Nikon flashes and such...
