Re: Inexpensive radio wireless flash for XZ-1

Follow-up notes --

When I first put the wireless receiver on the flash hotshoe, it didn't work. After a while, realized I had attached it backwards! The Cowboy manual, out of China, was very sincere, but confusing. See pic below for correct orientation.

Distance -- using the Yongnuo 460-II (in the picture below, under a different brand name), it worked perfectly at 30 normal paces, sometimes at 40, and not at 50. Tested with unobstructed line-of-sight from transmitter to receiver.

Indoor-outdoor -- the FM signal goes through walls and picture windows. Worked fine at a 16' distance with the camera inside and the flash out on the patio.
