Wireless Flash Triggers Compared

Here’s my breathless 10-minute rundown of all the current contenders for radio-triggering your off-camera flashes.

This is an update of the information contained in my course, “How to Shoot Professional-Looking Headshots and Portraits on a Budget with Small Flashes.”

This technology is changing fast, practically daily, so I’ll make periodic updates available as things evolve.

I hope you find it helpful, and I welcome your feedback or stories of your own experience with any of this gear.

    Hi Phil,

    The Skyport Receiver will run for 30 hours on a single charge and can be readily recharged in the field (even while in use) with a emergency cell phone recharger with the proper Nokia tip (about $20 at Bestbuy). I’ve been able to recharge my Universal about three times off of two AA batteries.

    Duly noted, Mark, thanks for the tip. Those of you considering Skyport should definitely look into that.
