So I’ve been on the fence for a long time about radio triggers. Tossed around the idea of getting some radio poppers for longer than I care to admit. Both my TTL cords (the long 24ft and short one) went bad on me so it was time! Listening to This Week in Photo one of the guys picks of the week was CowboyStudio NPT-04 Triggerswhich were selling ULTRA cheap. For one transmitter and two receivers $28 (and Amazon Prime eligible to boot!). For that low of an entry fee I had to try it. Here is my unboxing and first test. Using two flashes 580 EX II and a 430 EX II.
So far, very excited about what these things can do for the price! Here is where I got mine: CowboyStudio NPT-04 4 Channel Wireless Trigger for External Speelights with 1 Trigger and 2 Receivers (NPT-04+extra receiver)
