EX­PLORE WIRE­LESS TRIG­GER­ING AL­TER­NA­TIVES

While built-in flash trig­gers of­fer con­ve­nience, they are not nec­es­sar­ily the most re­li­able so­lu­tion

UNIVER­SAL TRANS­CEIVER

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.
