The RadioPopper Jr2.... The RadioPopper Jr2 is a complete ground up redesign of the RadioPopper Jrx. It is a huge improvement quality, usability and features. The Jr2 Transmitter supports 4 groups that can be instantly toggled on and o with buttons at the front of the unit. The buttons are lit allowing the photographer to easily see what groups are toggled on and which groups are being adjusted. A single dial allows for stop accurate control of lights andstrobes. Groups can be adjusted one at a time or all at the same time. Power can be adjusted in 1/3rd or 1/10th stop increments over 9 stops. The Jr2 Transmiter can act as a remote trigger by receiving remote triggering commands then ring the user's camera and lights. The display is small enough to keep the Transmitter compact and low pro le while still large enough to clearly indicate the power levels of all lights. Thedisplay also includes a backlight that works automatically. The Jr2 Transmitter is reverse compatible with all existing RadioPopper products and gives stop accurate control of Alien Bees and speedlights when paired with the new Jr2 Receiver. The Jr2 Transmitter also includes an exciting new feature, a memory function. The user can easily save up to 4 setups to be instantly recalled later. The savefunction remembers what groups are active and at what power levels. It can be used to save location setups or the most common setups in the user's studio. The Jr2

When you do ship them back, be aware that they may sit on their shelves for well over a week before getting serviced. From the time they received my returned receivers, it was 11 days before USPS tracking confirmed receipt of them from RadioPopper.
I have been using (and loving) the Jrx series of transmitter and receivers for the last few years very happily. In my opinion, they're the best on the market in the cross section between features and price. It's just that these Jr2's are new and they obviously weren't ready for prime time - neither the product, or the company to support them.
First off - cables from RadioPopper were expensive at $19.95 apiece. After the ones that came with the JrXs started failing and finally broke, I purchased some from a custom cable maker for about 1/3 the price. But after awhile, they began failing too.
The Jr2 receiver eliminates RPCubes.This new receiver is flat-out reliable. I've used mine to control power of Canon 430EX and 550EX strobes, and they just work. RadioPopper has *fixed* earlier firmware problems.
I'm also using Eneloop rechargeable AAA batteries to power them. It's a pleasure to eliminate expensive rechargeable RCR123s from the old JrX system. I haven't really tracked the battery life of the AAAs, but it seems no worse than the RCR123s in the JrXs.
I also like the stand-up-all-by-themselves design of the Jr2 receiver. For placing flash without a stand, this is far better than the kludge of the strobe in the RPCube in the little flash stand or stand adapter. If I need to use a stand adapter, screwing the Jr2 receiver into it is far more solid.
Do you get high-speed sync?
No. but do you really NEED HSS in a multiple-flash remote setup? I don't. If you do, you can use RadioPopper's PX system.
Do you get E-TTL (Canon) or iTTL (Nikon)?
No, but again, do you really NEED TTL control in a multiple-flash remote setup? Once more, I don't. I have yet to use a remote, multiple-flash setup for fast-moving subjects like sports competitors. Even there, you probably want fixed flash power indoors, and probably outdoors. Shooting pro mountain bike races outdoors, I want mobility. Even on a dual slalom course, competitors' lines are unpredictable enough that a fixed flash setup doesn't help for fill.
Where this system excels for me is with product, real estate interior, and ruins photography. I love setting power at the camera for multiple-strobe setups, and with the Jr2 transmitter, you can set independent power for four strobes in exact EV increments.
