Report on cheap radio triggers...

I have a set of the 4 for $50 ebay triggers and find they work well for normal studio work. The problem is they don't sync well (or consistantly) and for fast moving objects, like hummingbirds, you can see the multiple flashes. Here is an image from a 4-flash set up where you can see all 4 different positions of the wing.

It is usually not this evident, but it is always visable.

Here is one using a 3-flash set up with Sony-type sync cords.

Fat little thing, isn't she?

Some would have you believe that having to adapt to new technology is a workaround, but having adapted to old technology is photography.
