EXPLORE WIRELESS TRIGGERING ALTERNATIVES
While built-in flash triggers offer convenience, they are not necessarily the most reliable solution
Photographers operating flash systems containing multiple brands can experience compatibility issues between triggers and slave units. Investing in a collection of universal transceivers, such as the Cactus V6 series, enables multi-brand flashes to be used in unison, preventing the need to replace speedlights for same-brand examples.
THE RADIO ADVANTAGE
Radio triggers offer significantly higher reliability than optical or infrared methods, since radio signals can pass through the majority of common obstacles that a photographer may encounter. The range is also greater – often over 100 metres – so have become the favoured solution for many professional photographers.
