Take your flash off your camera and expand your creative capabilities with this 2.4GHz wireless triggering system. This trigger set will allow you to trigger your flash over 100 meters away.
The 4-channel, radio-enabled circuitry prevents your flash from being triggered by other flash units around you, making it perfect for photographing at events or on location.
Additionaly the system can be used as either a wired or wireless remote shutter release for your camera.
The transmitter is equipped with a hot shoe for camera mounting and the receiver may be mounted to a cold shoe or a 1/4"-20 tripod or stand mount. Other features include a test/shutter button and a status LED to verify operations.
This kit can also be used with Olympus and Sony cameras if purchased with the 06 or S6 Shutter Release Cable (sold separately).
Please note that these triggers do not transmit TTL information.

I bought this product at the Photography show. They work well but have two failings. The screw down clamp to secure it to the camera should be on both the receiver and transmitter not just the one, as it has a tendency to slip. Secondly i used them to remotely fire a second camera. They only give single shot even when set to burst.
Over the years I have collected four Canon flash guns, but none were compatible with the wireless trigger of the 580 EX. I was looking for an inexpensive way to make use of the old flashes. I originally had decided to get the Hahnel Viper, but the Calumet seemed to be much better value. I would loose the ability to control the flashe remotely, but one of the flashes I had didn't have the ability to set power, so it was no great loss.
The units were very easy to set up. They give the basic ability to wireless trigger a flash. I thought I would have to mess about setting up the powers, but the transmitter does have TTL pass through, so I use the 580EX on camera, a 380EX and 420 EZ on the remote receivers.
I have to say that it works amazingly well. I have no idea what metering the camera is using, but I generally use manual, 1/200 at f11 and the exposures tend to be spot on. I am very very impressed with the lighting, especially in large rooms. I tend to point the remote flashes at the ceiling and the main flash pointing directly at the subject. I think that for some, the lack of control will be a disadvantage, but if you want an inexpensive way of triggering flashes wirelessly, then I can absolutely recommend this system.
It will also remotely trigger the camera, which is very useful.
Having RF wireless is great. You can hide the flashes behind things and they still fire.
One thing which would make these even more usable would be a small stand with each module.
If you are looking for a basic wireless flash trigger and are happy to use manual, then these units are excellent value.
