Hi there,
A couple weeks ago I posted that I ordered a remote trigger device from the other side of the ocean !!
It was $29.00 + $5.00 for shipping. If it turned out to be garbage, it wouldn't break the bank.
I am happy to report that after playing with this thing for an hour or so, I delighted with it. Pix attached are self explanatory. Set up in 3 minutes!
with my D200 & SB600 across 2 rooms in the house. OK, not a gymnasium...YET !
Did not misfire once. 20+ shots.
If you're considering PW's and not lighting up a Volleyball court, it will fire up to 4 flashes at once! I found them on The Strobist.
get them here <Gadgetinfinity.com>

very straight forward.

Ohh, and I did NOT specify what type or make of camera I have.

Hello Jim.

I have exactly the same types, only with some other badges on them. I use these for several months (got them via eBay directly from Shanghai) and made hundreds of shots without any drama or malfunction (with D2H, D200 and SB-800, SB-600, SB-24) whatsoever.

Only the mechanical quality is a bit ... aaah ... poor, but if you and handling them with a little caution, it will work out fine.

Regards

Mattes
