Note: I've been using these triggers for nearly 3 years now, with zero problems. This review was written when I only had them for a few days.
Today most modern DSLR's have built in IR triggering. This is great for controlling off camera flashes, as long as you're within range and have line-of-site. If your needs go beyond this and you would like to trigger your camera remotely as well as control a flash or two, then the world of wireless triggers is for you.
In the past three years there been a proliferation of cheap wireless devices, sometimes disparagingly referred to as "ebay triggers". While most of these may not appeal to professionals whose reputation (and egos) depend on them, it's a huge boon to photographers testing the strobist waters, or hobbyists looking for a new toy. I fit those latter two categories. Recently the trend has moved towards transceivers, eliminating the need for 2 separate devices. Additionally it allows for multiple triggering as I'll comment on below.
Not necessarily needing TTL for my manual flash work I narrowed down the massive list of trigger brands to Cactus, Yongnuo and the Trigmaster. I finally settled on the Trigmaster - for its total compatibility with pretty much every single Canon DSLR made. I didn't want to invest in triggers strictly for the Rebel series when I know I'll be purchasing a new body soon, or purchase additional cable since I'm just lazy in spite of Amazon's one-click purchasing!Read more ›
I'm only dinging it one star because putting the transmitter on the hot shoe is not easy, and you have to wedge that piece of plastic into the hot shoe. With just a little more force, I believe there is a chance of breaking or bending the transmitter mount, so I think much care has to be given when mounting the transmitter on the hot shoe.
One afternoon while reading some reviews on the Wizards, I happened to see theses listed as "alternative" triggers to the Wizards. I started reading up on them and everything the manufaturer said about them seem to like it would more than handle whatever situations I would need them for. After reading countless reviews (still a bit wary), I decided for less than $60.00 for the set, I would take a chance and order the set.
When they arrived, I was very careful to take them out of the packaging very carefully, fully expecting to send them right back where they came from if they gave me even the slightest indication that they wouldn't fire when I needed them to. The triggers were pretty straight forward. Anyone that has ever a wireless trigger will be able to figure them out pretty quick. I flipped open the manual and kind of scanned the directions real quick just to make sure there wasn't anything special that I needed to do to get the triggers to work. After installing the included batteries, I set one to transmit, one to receive, then changed them both to a different channel other than the default channel 1. I then decided to put these things to the test.Read more ›
I know Pocket Wizards are awesome, but they are also a lot more expensive. The Aputure Trigmaster seriously gives the pocket wizards a run for their money. I don't know how long they will last, but they seem well built. Bottom line, at a fraction of the cost, it's worth the try. I plan on buying a couple more.
