Default Wireless triggers for the Strobist

Just thought I would share this with any Strobists out there who cannot afford the pocket wizards.

They are just as good and I have used them at there full distance and fired 30 times without a miss fire and also I live in a house with three floors and while the flash and receiver was at the top floor and the trigger at the bottom floor it fire with no problem. They are very cheap and IMO as good as the pocket wizards.
They also have other amazing equipment at a very good price (I purchased a battery powered ring flash with a beauty dish and It Is of good build and quality with the flash bulb being easy to replace with out sending off for the replacement).
There after sales is superb as well.

Its a UK store and Its worth a look.

No probs Mike.
They have some good gear and they are very helpful. Just tell them what sort of stuff your wanting to do and they will tell you what gear you will need and not try and sell you something that you don't need, like some stores I have used in the past.

Thanks for that link. Something I've been meaning to try since about 1832, but just get baffled by it all. By the time I get to an online retailer, I've forgotten what I went there for in the first place (I'm distracted by all the shiny toys), at least here you get the reviews giving you some idea what its all for.
