Are you kidding me?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CowboyStudio NPT-04 4 Channel Wireless Trigger for External Speelights with 1 Trigger and 2 Receivers (NPT-04+extra receiver) (Electronics)
First let me say that the delivery was 2 days earlier then I expected. Next, you're a sucker if you buy any other triggers and are not a pro.
It arrived in a nice looking box and was well protected.
First thing I did was bought batteries to test them out. You do not need a flash to test them out, but I recommend you do to no be miss led. For example; I pressed the test button on the trigger and a little red light on the receiver indicates that it received a signal. Now I did this right when I put my fresh batteries in. It did show some miss firing on one, but, when I tested it with my flash (SB900)it never missed fired not one time. It appears to me that the light doesn't pop each time you press the trigger button. However when the flash is on the receiver, it has worked every time.
I Tested it with 2 walls(about 30 feet straight line)between the flash and camera and not one time has it miss fired. I took about 70+ shots so far. Not bad for day one. I do expect them to miss fire but so far the stats are great.
As for the build, It has metal hot shoe mount and metal screw mount. The tightener is plastic and the shoe is plastic. You don't need to tighten the trigger at all. It fits snug.
Update. I got my other flash last week and both receivers still hasn't miss fired.

Did they actually take 3-5 weeks to ship to you? I need these for a photo shoot next week, but I'm worried that they won't get shipped out in time. Thanks!

Can you use this unit to fire the "Camera" only? In other words, can you trigger the camera shutter by putting the reciver on the camera and use this instead of a cablel release? Thenks!

this set of receiver / transmitter works on any flash and camera ? I have a nikon 7100

yes. its only works as a trigger/receiver. so basically all it does is make other speed lights pop, so you would need to use manual settings on speedlites which is a good thing
