    Not sure if anyone has seen this or not but it seems promising at $39.00... Shipping should be sometime in September.

    Interesting. I could see it doing well with the right packaging/marketing. There are lots of $20 solutions out there on Amazon, but none of them are as compact or as colourful, and (I'm hoping) this one would have a contactable manufacturer if support were needed.

    I've had mixed results with inexpensive flash triggers.

    The first set worked great when I tested them in the office but failed in the field. Even from only inches away.

    The second set I bought are 2.4GHz units from Aputure. (Yes that is how the company name is spelled. :p) These have been pretty reliable but for some reason my SB700 doesn't like to play nice with them so I use it as an optical slave. I have used them up to 50 or 60 yards.

    None of them work as well as the Cyber Commander I use with my Einstein mono lights.

    This is one area were it really does seem to be you get what you pay for. On the other had, if I weren't saving for other toys I might pick up a set to play with. I wonder if it would fit inside the Ikelite housing for my D800? :)
