Unfortunately the PC cables in all four boxes are not designed to spec. The 2.5mm connectors that plug into the transceivers seem to actually be 2mm wide, and 12mm long (instead of 2.5mm wide 10mm long). This causes them to be too loose in the ports causing a really bad connection. If I try to use these cables then the transceivers trigger less than half the time. Pulling the connectors out slightly increases the success rate (apparently the extra 2mm of length, if nothing else, is causing a problem.)
These cables were bad in four different boxes, so this isn't a random manufacturing defect. It seems like they got a whole batch of cables from some bad supplier that weren't manufactured to the proper spec of 2.5mm wide and 10mm long. Apparently they didn't test them with their own connection ports before shipping them out.
I tested all of the cables with my camera, light meter, and all four tansceivers, so I know it isn't a device problem or a problem with the transceivers.
Luckily the 2.5mm to 3.5mm cables work just fine. The 2.5mm connectors on those are actually 2.5mm wide and 10mm long, and they fit very securely into the transceivers.
I contacted their support department about the PC cable problem via email, so we'll see how they handle it. I'll relate my experience and raise my rating to four stars if they fix it without too much trouble.
Aside from that problem, they work pretty well.Read more ›
I also tried the receiver with my Yongnuo 560-II and it didn't fire. I haven't figured out how to make the the Yongnuo and the Transceiver play together other than putting the YN 560-ii into S1 (Slave Mode) so it will fire optically when MY SB900 is the Master Flash.
I suspect that some of the problems people are having with the triggers not firing is that they have the wrong trigger on their camera. There is no model number on the trigger themselves. I'm planning to use a dot of nail polish on the receiver of the body somewhere so I know which is the TX1N receiver that needs to go on the camera and which needs to be on the flash.
I'm looking forward to seeing how things extend when I get my Trigmaster Plus II order in a week or so.
I hope I can keep liking them.. I had a long shoot last Friday (9 hours), and another one yesterday. Several DIFFERENT problems have plagued their use and I thought I would write this review.
On the plus - I can, as an experiment, get these to work @ up to 1/320th of a second on my D7000. Not 100% reliable, but nice indeed. I've never seen a 'range or distance' issue, but I haven't gone that far (mostly studio or other portrait work). They are straightforward, nicely packed. I want to like them a lot. I've probably used them for over 1000 clicks.
However, my experiences so far are starting to be a concern in fast paced work.
1) When the speedlight is mounted atop the 'hot shoe' fitting on these, most any sort of motion (such as raising the combination up on a flash stand) is likely to rock the frequency selector up a number or two.. If I then trigger the flash from the camera on frequency-station 2, and the receiver has crept up to frequency-station or 4, NO FLASH.. Ugh.. Lower it back down, take the flash off the receiver, correct the setting, and repeat.. My wife suggested that I reverse the flash head in the fitting - that might work - didn't try it as it was too painful to consider.. Instead...
2) .. I used the include PC cord. Hey- an answer which works is often good enough. .However, this failed to eliminate all the problems. Since I bought so many, I had spare cords, and I tried another cord. It worked.Read more ›

I've only used them twice, but each time they preformed well. It only took about a minute to get things set and no problems after that. You can beat what you get for the price.Published on November 3, 2013 by Tate
