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 ›
In most of the scenarios my SB910 with D5000 fires well but every time if there is a delay of more than a few minutes between clicks, the receiver goes in sleep mode. After this happens, I have to switch off the receiver and switch it on again after which it again starts working fine.
Just because of this reason I had to return this product as after putting up all those efforts for setting up my frame, focusing and getting ready to click, I have to walk back to remote flash/trigger to reboot it.
A few more design flaws I found while using these triggers are as follows:
1. Antenna is a bit free moving which risks breaking while traveling, if within the gear case it gets rotated there is high risk of breaking this with other loads on to of it
2. Receiver if added to flash light makes you unable to mount the flash light on its stand
3. Transmitter unit on top of camera being vertical disrupts the field view and makes it look like a bit odd... believe horizontal mounting would look better
Overall I would recommend this for beginners and casual hobbyists but not for pros and serious enthusiasts.
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.
