he RadioPopper Jr2 Transmitter is a 16 channel, 4 group radio transmitter that operates on the 902-928 MHz, ISM band and is capable of adjusting the output of the flash using a separately purchased Jr2 receiver for Nikon i-TTL or Canon E-TTL/II flash units. Triggering and power control from distances of 300 - 1,750' depending on conditions and environment is possible.
Top Customer Reviews
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the scroll wheel for fast and accurate flash adjustments.
Would I buy it again? Probably. unless I find something better.
The Jr2 eliminates all of that. You get a LCD display of exact EV power levels (if you're using Jr2 receivers). The Jr2 is backwards-compatible with JrX receivers, adjustable to % output but visible at a glance. You also get an additional flash channel for a total of four, where the JrX only gave you three. (You can use three JrX receivers with RPCubes and one Jr2 receiver to get those four channels if you'd rather not upgrade everything at once.)
In practice, the Jr2's multi-button / single dial controls work very well. I don't miss separate power knobs per channel at all.
** Does the Jr2 transmitter do HSS?
** No, and it doesn't claim to. Read the info on RadioPopper's website before you buy. It's likely you don't really need HSS for a remote, multiple-strobe setup anyway - I never needed a remote setup to begin with, in several years of shooting professional mountain bike races.
** Does the Jr2 transmitter support E-TTL / iTTL?
** No, and it doesn't claim to. Again, read the info on RadioPopper's website before you buy. And again, it's likely you don't really need E-TTL / iTTL for a remote, multiple-strobe setup anyway.
If you're thinking about an upgrade from a JrX transmitter, go for it.
The Jr2 transmitter is well worth it.
Using it with the JRx original receivers and prefer the digital display versus the guesstimate knobs and dip switches.
but JRX2 is such a disappointment.
- 4 channels
- Can control Alien Bees, Einstein as well as SOME(!!) Nikon and Canon flashes
- Has illuminated screen and buttons
- AA batteries
- Quality. It is made of really cheap plastic (my copy of receiver was even badly assembled ).
Buttons has a play, so if you will shake it a bit you will hear a noise of them going back and forth (although does not harm performance )
- Battery dies really fast (on the end of second shoot had to replace batteries, previous gen last me about 10-12 shoots)
- Does not support old Nikon flashes like Nikon Sb 24, Sb 28 and Sb 80DX (may be more) - and Manual doesn't mention it.
Probably will support most of newer flashes but with NO TTL and NO HSS
- Receiver does not have cold shoe, just a screw hole for light stand (may be annoying or some who has most of umbrella stands with cold shoe)
- Menu controls is badly designed. MOST ANNOYING part of menu control system is DOUBLE TAP
The way it is designed: Four Buttons to choose a group (A B C D) single tap it turning group off and double tap is to choose a group to control a power output of this group. It may not sound too bad until you try to use it. Just for clarification - how often photographer on a set turning strobes ON or OF, and how often photographer on a set changing power output of strobes. So you have to double tap to do your most frequently changes, and single tap for something that you may not need to do at all. It is like while you texting you would have to double tap on a keyboard to type a letter and single tap to type a symbol or smiley face. Eventually after 3-4 years you can get to use to it, but does it worth it ??
I decided to stay with previous gen.
