Radio Slaves/wireless Slaves Thread

Recommended Posts

Get a Nikon AS-15 Hotshoe to PC adapter... and then run a sync cord to the radio slave in your back pocket... not sure why the transmitter won't work on the D70 hotshoe.

Ah I feel like such a douche asking this, but where can I get a hotshoe adapter with 3mm female socket? I can only find hot shoe adapters with pc female sockets. Thanks.

How does a PW transceiver work?i understand how the receiver/transmitter works, because it has two parts..

 

You can make it work as either a transmitter or a receiver.

new pw's are around the $190 range each. flashes range from like 30 to however much you want to spend. the cheapest light stand is a $20 6' impact stand. or you could get a cheap tripod and get an adapter to put a flash on it. the other thing you'd need are sync cords which are different prices depending on what connection your flash has.

 

so if you want to put a 285hv off camera...itd be around...500ish

@ wutangphoto

 

here's a review on ebay slaves.

 

some differences:

 

pw's are a lot more reliable (you can mod ebay slaves to make them a bit more reliable and have a farther range. here is the mod)

 

pw's have a much farther range than ebay slaves

 

 

 

if you can, you should probably skip ebay slaves and go straight for pocket wizards if you have the money. that's definately what i'm doing.

pw's arent even THAT much money.

 

and they work with ever flash right?

 

they work with every flash as long as you get the right sync cord.

And connect the cord from the receiver to the flash.

 

Ever thought of looking at the pocketwizard website? They have PDF instruction manuals on there.
