    Don't know how the hell I missed this thread!?

    So how are you finding them nick? Build quality isn't the best but mine are still firing reliably without any problems. I've gotta admit the 430EX did my head in today turning off all the time and I'm not one to RTFM either so thanks for posting the fix!

    Loving the effect I get with shoot through umbrella with the triggers so far. Still a lot to learn!

    I hear ya, setting up multiple flashes can be a pain. Once the novelty of radio triggers wares off I'll probably revert back to my old ways.

    Ummm, I dunno about mine. When I press the test button they fire no problem but when I take the picture it looks like it misses sync or something at times. I noticed the problem when I was really close to receiver or when one receiver was in the trunk of the car surrounded by metal... just like Adam said.

    Overall not too bad though. I'll be using them a lot in Mexico in a few weeks and I'll probably have more of an opinion developed at that time.

    Heh, sorry but thats very far from strobism : P

    They never let the flashes actually show, they make the off-camera flash seem natural.

    Hey, as a fellow canadian, where did you get your's :? The radio triggers that is. Or was it just some asian ebay dealer ?

    Im hoping for some sort of canadian based retailer or reseller or something.

    That is a little too "strobist" nick haha I'm going to try some car shots soon, I'm thinking undercover carpark with two strobes firing into reflecting umbrellas, left and right of the camera.

    I'm getting 1/200 sync with these triggers no probs.
