Just received my $37/pair triggers from Amazon and am happy to say they are working to trigger my Canon 430EX flash on my 5DII.

I have not done much testing yet, but I did find that my maximum sync speed is only 1/160.

Has anyone else using this camera and flash with the YongNuo trigger found a different (faster ) synch speed?

The flash mounted directly on the camera synchs at 1/200, and YongNuo claims up to 1/320 synch speed, so I'm wondering why I'm only getting 1/160?


My galleries at:

I use them with my Nikon D700, SB700s and some cheaper Yongnuo flashes.  It seems sometimes I can get up to 1/200 but sometimes I just start to get the black bar creeping in a little...not sure why the inconsistency.

I would be nice to have High speed sync and TTL but at the price those other companies charge for that I'll pass at this point.  Frankly, since I'm full manual all the way I could stock up these triggers, use a much cheaper Yongnuo flashes(which aren't bad) and have tons of backups.

Really no complaints so far.
