Re: SM Flashwaves - Cheap alternative to Pocke Wizard

Thanks for the review, Gene. Based on your review and the cost advantages over PW's, I ponied up the funds to get a couple FlashWaves ordered today and so I hope to get testing with them next week.

What could be worth investigating for those who are on the fence is whether the FlashWaves will sync at 1/250th consistently when stretched across the distance of say 150 feet or more. You'd expect that kind of consistency from PW's for all the moola they fetch.

Consistent synchronization is important to me, even though we don't require our triggers to span so great a distance very often (field sports occasionally).

If anyone has any curiosities they'd like me to test for, then reply before next Friday and I'll try to fit your request into our regimen. I'll report what I find...
