That's a bad combination for sure. . . Already thinking about winter indoor sports and am close to buying some Alien Bee's and triggers. .. My theory is if I buy them slowly it will hurt less. :biggrin:

Anyone have any thoughts on the new Alien Bee CybrSync triggers ? I would love to have some Pocket Wizards but if I could get these for 1/3 the cost and they work, does't that make sense ?

Here's the link

Maybe, but there is not much experience with them yet. Having said that, AB stuff generally works as advertised.

Thanks John. . I have really heard nothing but good things about AB products. That's why I am thinking about trying them along with a couple AB800's

I sold my pocket wizard for these, and so far..... love them!

Transmitter is sooooo much smaller than PW.

Mine will do 1/250 shutter speeds with the D3.

Yep Tim -- that's them alright. I think I am going to order some this week. The price is just waaay too good not to try them. That way I can spend the money on lights instead.

What's your experience with the range on those critters.

Check this thread out. I'm going to get a set myself. I'm reading nothing but good things about these units.

Interesting. One of my older P/W's seems to have failed and I was not looking forward to the thought of replacing it. I could sell the 2 others (one new almost new) and still have some leftover from a set of these.

I have a set also. 1 Trans & 1 Recv. Seems to work really well.

I traded in my older RF set for these, They gave me full purchase price trade-in.

Too Cool!!!

But Tim, Why do ya have 3 recv? You really only need one, as the others
heads should trip via the built-in slaves.

Or are doing some magic or something else????

I ordered a couple of these and will try them out for general studio shots but I really want them to fire strobes in a gym setting for basketball / wrestling etc. . .

We'll see. Still a cheaper way to try than PW's. . .Although PW's are an outstanding product for sure.
