Remote Flash Trigger – Recommended

For those looking for a remote flash trigger for studio of outdoor work, you can do a lot worse than the G430C ( C is for Canon) 2.4GHz Wireless Grouping Flash Trigger.

I invested in the duo set from tomtop through ebay, it was delivered within three days and worked perfectly with the Canon 7d and the Magnaflash M302E and the m252 flash units. I needed an additional slave unit which I also got from ebay, but that had to come from China. A problem? Not at all, it was delivered from China within 5 days.

The remote and slaves are well made and multi channel so in theory you can set up different lighting system with different flash units and leave them in place, just change channel to change the flash release to trigger different set-ups.

The duo (transmitter and Receiver) was £16.00 (UK) and the additional receiver was £10.56 (UK)
