Re: Aputure TrigMaster Plus: bad PC cables in 4 units

That's too bad about your cable - my PC cable is all fine and gets used frequently. That really was one of the selling points, so I hope they sort it out quickly!

Most of your observations are the ones that most people complain about (2 button test) and placement of hot shoe/cold shoe (or no shoe in this case!). I think they concentrated more on copying PW than coming up with some original ideas on their own.

Another minor annoyance is that since there's no cold shoe on the bottom, it would be nice if the bottom was flat (instead of curved), so it could be set on a solid surface with a flash on it.

I think your idea about a 3 position switch is a good one, the test fire still makes me crazy as I always have something else in one of my hands. Since they make such a nice big trigger button it would be nice to maximize its usefulness!
