Name: PiXel Pawn TF-363
Price: about £40 for one transmitter and one receiver. Other deals with more receivers are available.
Adaptor needed: none with the Sony version.
Control: manual flash only, no TTL

The TF-373 is similar but appears to allow wireless flash grouping. Cost -- about £45

Elinchrom Skyport- $200 for transmitter and receiver - Sony hotshoe adaptor.

Cactus Wireless Flash Trigger Set V4 (transmitter and receiver combo).
Price: $39 US
Can be triggered using PC-sync from A700/850/900. Not sure whether other Sony DSLR's have PC-sync socket (some I'm sure don't). If camera lacks PC sync connection, then you will need adapter (around $15).

Alternatively, Bowens Pulsar Wireless Flash Transceivers - BW5150. Around $120 each. Will work with either PC-synch or hotshoe adapters.

Pretty much all of them work with Alpha cameras, be it with or without an iISO adapter.

None of these do TTL. TTL radio flash for Alphas doesn't exist (yet).

The most eloquent and reasonably priced are the Pixel TF-363 and TF-373.

this is great data...
i wonder ... these info should put as a sticky post in lighting so that other member won't ask again and again.

Yongnuo CTR-301p, around $40,- with 2 receivers ($60 with 3).
These are really reliable, no misfires as with lots of other cheap triggers.
They sync up to 1/200 with Sony, but may be faster with future camera's.
Range around 20 meters (66 foot).
You can upgrade them to be even better if your a little handy.
Mine now work up to 150 meters (500 foot) with no misfires.
I made a http://www.flickr.com/groups/strobist/discuss/72157624609682396/ - Topic on Flickr about that, but most of the pics are offline now.


Edit:
Oh and no adaptor is needed on the camera side, the trigger has a Sony/minolta Shoe.
The flash side is a normal ISO shoe and PC-sync port.
I use the PC-sync port with a cable thats PC-sinc on one side and Sony/Minolta Sync port on the other.
You could also use the well known adaptor's but I wont trust my flashes on those cheap pieces of plastic.

As Mud.Starrr mentioned CT-301p ... I have recently got the CT-301... (this version is without the PC sync port) ... and I'm trying to use it with to trigger my Minolta Maxxum 2800 AF flash.

On my camera, this old flash syncs @ 1/200... But, with this trigger, the fastest possible sync speed just drops to a very very slow shutter speed... like 1/25

... even at the speed of 1/30, the dark patch of the shutter curtain starts to appear in the frame... and at anything faster than 1/30, it just fires totally out of sync... with no effect of the flash in the exposure.

Any idea how to correct this? ... if it's the problem of the trigger... can anyone suggest me any other trigger that will go with my old Minolta flash (preferrably, without any modification)?

Oh thats because they made a mistake with a wire in the system.
You just have to make a extra wire from the battery-plate to the foot.
Its really easy, you don't have to solder anything.
The wire on the battery site just squeezes in by the battery, and the other half can be set under a screw thats already there.
1 minute work and they work perfectly, the good thing about these triggers is that they rarely have misfires (most of those cheap ones do have that problem).
Here is how to do the little mod: http://www.flickr.com/groups/strobist/discuss/72157612529839420/ - Flickr

Yongnuo RF-602 TX & RX set ("RF-602 3 in 1 for Nikon");
$40;
adapters are needed both for TX & RX.

I get 1/200 s of maximum sync speed with Sony A700 (and Minolta 5600HSD). Maximum sync speed of 1/250 s also has been reported (by others). About quarter area of blackness engulfs a photograph if I try shutter speed of 1/250 s.

Thanks Mud.Starrr, I did exactly as you said... and it worked like a charm!!! Thank you sooo much!!

My Minolta 2800 AF flash is now syncing @ 1/200 !! ...What a jump from 1/30!! ..Although a very slight darker top can be noticed at 1/200 ... but I can live with that... knowing that it syncs perfectly at 1/160 at least!!

Thanks again... and yes, I do agree with you that these triggers never misfire... when I was restricted to 1/30 I noticed that too!!

Btw... I'm looking forward to buy some more cheap powerful flashes (Vivitar, maybe)... so my question is... will this mod work for all other flashes? ... or do I have to reset it back to default for some of them?

Your welcome!
And what camera do you use?
Mine sync perfect with 1/200, and sometimes with a bar @ 1/250 (you have to be lucky at that speed )

Flashwave 2 and Blazzeo both make wireless systems compatible with Sony.

Blazzeo is dirt cheap, but I've found them reliable.

Flashwave 2 is a little more, but waaaaay better quality, and can sync up to 1/5000 if you can trick it into doing so.

What law of physics are you referring to, and why would you think that it defies such a law? Considering how I've seen images lit at 1/5000 with a flashwave 2, I somehow think you are the one needing to explain.

The laws of physics say the shutter is only partially open at 1/5000s. Only HSS capable flashes, which emit a series of consecutive flashes, can light an entire frame with shutters faster than x-sync.

Could it have been a slow sync setup, where the shutter speed is equal to the x-sync speed, and the flash duration is 1/5000s? Any trigger can do that...

That's for focal plane shutters. Many cameras don't use those and could indeed sync at just about any speed available.

True - but to be fair, Jlav didn't exactly say it could be done with an Alpha. And discussions of other cameras and systems creep in here pretty often.

Darnit, Ray, you're sounding like a real-life Sheldon Cooper!

We really can learn some unexpected things here! I now know who Sheldon Cooper is, along with Heath Robinson (Mark L invoked that name when referring to a post of mine in another thread a few hours ago).

I did wonder if anyone outside the UK would understand what I was talking about. Heath Robison is part of the language over here.

But I digress. I would love to know how it is possible to trick any flash or radio trigger into syncing at 1/5000 sec with a focal plane shutter, assuming no HSS, of course.

So, let's see... You're firing an HSS enabled flash with a dedicated cable. Its flash burst begins before the shutter starts to open, triggering an optical slave that in turn triggers a radio transmitter that in turn triggers the radio receiver to fire a big studio flash. Assuming that the shutter has not yet opened by this time, the big flash still has to have a long enough duration to last through the whole curtain transit. What is that duration? And is it easy for a typical monolight to fire for that long? What happens in your specific case when you exceed 1/5000 second?

Looking at the diagram, I have used this method since the KM7D and A100 days skipping a few unnecessary items. Ever tried wireless HSS up to 1/8000sec?

I stopped at 1/5000 because I had a headache from flashing myself with various finagling. I have a blazzeo trigger I will play with as well to see what kind of speeds I can get. I'm pretty excited about the speeds I can shoot sports as this works better than using an optical slave on my studio lights as it times better for the peak of the light duration.

It is interesting; but the problem is that you're getting only a small fraction of the true output from your lights this way, and I assume they have to remain pointed at the same target all the time unless you have an assistant moving them. What kind of sports shooting will benefit from this as opposed to a more conventional approach?

I don't own monolights... nor do I have a camera that exceeds 1/4000 second. But I just conducted some tests with my A55, 5600HS(D), an old Minolta 360PX (GN36 and maximum flash duration of 1/700 second) and an optical trigger. I didn't try including a radio trigger in the mix.

The combination worked, and I was able to sync exposures up to 1/4000 second. But to light a small object two feet away I had to shoot at f/1.7 and ISO 6400. I'm not sure how I would use this technique in a real shooting scenario.

This is useful for several sports and editorial shoots, as well as shooting in bright sunlight. Here's a few examples using this technique:
Both of these are 1/640th, iso 400 I was standing about 40 feet away.




And a shot I wish I had this working for:


The issue this gets around is first, HSS sucks up a lot of power from your flashes, that you regain using a radio trigger. Second, a gn of 36 is pretty weak compared to the lights I'm using, and wouldn't work well in most lighting conditions for shooting proffessional sports either. You'd need the light roughly 4 feet from your subject.

Yes, that's more reasonable than 1/5000!

I'm afraid nothing is regained. This approach sucks even more power than regular HSS because this is a full continuous burst. HSS is a series of brief pulses. In the little test I described above, normal HSS provided way more usable light, even accounting for the different guide numbers.

Second, a gn of 36 is pretty weak compared to the lights I'm using, and wouldn't work well in most lighting conditions for shooting proffessional sports either.

Yes, I assume you need really powerful lighting; but you'll still be wasting most of it if you push into the 1/5000 second range - it's unavoidable.

I think that depends on timing, I haven't tried speedlights with this, so I assume they have much faster spurts of power than the studio lights. The flash is firing just before the shutter, in which case you're catching the light as it's dying.

The only reason I was providing a 1/5000 example is because Fuzzphoto said it was impossible in an earlier post. I like a good challenge.

Where the studio light has an edge here, apart from the power, is the discharge of the light is more like a bell curve, and you have a lot more light duration to capture within. I've noticed my newer alien bees are not as easy to work with since their duration is much shorter.

I'm impressed, but I never said it's impossible to light a 1/5000 s exposure with a flash. What I said was that it's impossible for a flash trigger to magically enable such a thing. As it turns out, this is a characteristic of the strobe you're using and an overly complicated chain of trigger devices that seem to get the timing just right. The flash fires at the exact moment the shutter begins to open and lights the scene long enough for the shutter to travel across the frame.

At 1/5000 and 1/200 x-sync speed, this dims the flash by about 4.5 stops, reducing a 400 Ws strobe to the power of a popup flash.

So you didn't use the word "impossible"...

I've done this now with three different strobes and two different flashes. It works. My experimenting has also led me to believe that not all optical triggers operate at the same speed as well. I just wanted to share a trick that I figured out in the wake of having all sorts of other sports photographers dis my system because it couldn't do it without line of sight.

I agree - it does work as described. You were also right about using the delay caused by a radio trigger to get better timing to match the flash's highest output. When I add my Pixel TF-363 to my earlier experiment I do get close to a stop more usable light (although it's still miserably feeble). In my book you've won this 'bar bet' and taught us a new trick.

I first bought a Yongnuo RF-603 (Nikon version + FS-1100) but it wouldn't trigger with my A900.

Then, I got some Aputure Trigmaster Plus 2.4GHz. Works fine with A900. But the Sony version has a Sony/Minolta iISO hotshoe only on the camera side.
Flash side is ISO for all versions (I had to use a FS-1200 adapter to use my HVL-F58AM) and all versions can trigger each other. I had a Sony version on my A900 and Canon/Nikon versions on the YongNuo Flashes.

The Sony version also comes with a Sony remote cable so a Trigmaster can trigger both the camera and the flashes.

The big downside compared to the Yongnuo RF-603 is that it's much more expensive.

So, let's see... You're firing an HSS enabled flash with a dedicated cable.

Assuming that the shutter has not yet opened by this time, the big flash still has to have a long enough duration to last through the whole curtain transit. What is that duration? And is it easy for a typical monolight to fire for that long? What happens in your specific case when you exceed 1/5000 second?



Just curious... how reliable are the optic slaves?
I recently bought the iShoot PO-04B and find that it will not work with my HVL-F42s no what I do. But tested on the HVL-F58, it works but it's not reliable.

Linkdelight/Blazzeo triggers work fine. I haven't pushed to see how far away I can get and still trigger. I own about 10 of these with one failure.

http://www.linkdelight.com/T1D-Blazzeo-4-Channel-Wireless-Slave-Studio-Flash-Trigger-for-Sony.html

$24 US for a transmitter & trigger. Shipping is usually pretty quick,customer service is about typical for a company like this out of China. (Not great but not terrible)

OK, this begs the question: How did you pull this off, especially with PW2s, that don't natively support HSS on _any_ platform? Are you doing some sort of RadioPopper "unintelligently intercept the HSS signals and use them to modulate Pocket Wizard RF transmission" trick?

To use it outdoor, you need 3 flashes or speelites, you can search at youtube on Joe McNally videos on how he shoot a model at a desert. He was using HSS but not wirelessly, he was using optical IR.

are you saying you need 3 to get enough light with the setup shown above? or 3 in general for HSS? because i have no issue getting enough light outside with one Sony 58 wirelessly. but have to trigger it with another Sony 58. im hoping to find a way to trigger both 58's off camera with a radio trigger.

@yamaha83, in order to do HSS, you only need 1 Sony flash that is capable of HSS, so far only two models that has HSS feature, i.e F58AM and the new H43AM.

I said that you need 3 speedlites or flashes to light up your subject when you are shooting in a very bright outdoor condition.

Thank you for the thread redirect. Looks like a lot of folks are interested in the results from these devices, too.

SONY should go with the RF-control in the body. That would allow complete and accurate control over the flash systems. That is the target. SONY, make it so.

I bought a pair of Aputure Trigmaster Plus II (2.4 Ghz) for $70 through EBay.

But I wouldn't have if I had known they do not fit SONY flashes.
They have a SONY connector for the camera, but the flash hotshoe is a standard one. So my brand new HVL-F58AM won't fit.

I jumped at them too quick.

I have the same ones. Mine work fine on manual like a charm. Word of advice for anyone considering them, be very gentle with them. They don't seem to be built to last. Also, they are a pita to remove from hotshoe, ridiculously so actually.

I bought a Flashwave 2 Pro on the advice of a couple of friends.
I have never been able to get it work, whether with my Sony gear or non Sony gear.
It was only recently that I noticed a possible problem, the power indicator on the receiver unit, which flashes the yellow low power warning. I have tried it in the past couple of days with fresh alkaline batteries and with fully charged rechargeable batteries and all I get is the yellow low power warning. It took me so long to identify the problem the Flashwave is out of warranty. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem and has a solution.
Otherwise I may have to try one of the other triggers recommended here.

thanks

Ummmm. He did. This is that thread.

@garret. It seems unlikely that there is a quick solution to your problem, as clearly the trigger is faulty. For use with Sony equipment, I would recommend one of the Pixel triggers. For use with studio equipment you can buy much cheaper but perfectly functional triggers, although you may need an adaptor for the transmitter.

I attached trigger to a850, and 2 receiver to F43am, cheap TT560 manual flash and works great.

haven't tested from long distance though.

I'm enjoying my npt-04 system. I have 5 LumoPro and Yonguo flashes along with a Sony 56 and 20 flash. For around $100 I can mix ISO and iISO shoe receivers and triggers.

I have one trigger mounted on my Sekonic 778 spot meter, which makes using the full manual flashes a real pleasure. I've had zero miss-fires or problems. Highly recommended.

I have to slow down the shuter speed to 1/160 to 1/200 to get comsistant sync with the shutter (A900). Also when using multiple flashes/receivers, they do not sync with each other and are clearly visible as individual flashes on fast moving object (hummingbirds).

For normal studio type work, they work quite well. But for fast moving, multiple set ups, forget it.

                                      £73

More expensive than some of the other triggers, but no adapters needed (for my purposes). All the Tranceiver/Rx units have an ISO hotshoe, but the MXIIS kit comes with an adapter included [ISO>iISO]. The MXIIS kit also came with batteries included (another cost saver) and although the manual for the TX1S implies batteries are included mine never had. I've only tested them a handful of times but so far no misfires. Not tested range, but I'll mostly be doing indoor work.

I'd like to ask owners of Cowboystudio trigger set. Say I bought 1 transmitter 1 receiver for sony hot shoe. What if I'll buy studio strobe receiver from them also? will it work with dedicated sony transmitter, or I'll need a different one?

I plan to buy the Phottix Strato II Multi 5-in-1 Wireless Flash Trigger for Sony.
There is a big photo expo here in Stockholm where "Kaffebrus" usually are present, so I will check if they have a good expo price. If not I'll just order it from their web:

The text is in Swedish, but the image shows that it has a Sony/Minolta hotshoe.

A link to the Phottix site:

I think it will suite me fine. I think it only supports manaul flash, but a nice thing is that it also can be used as a radio remote trigger for the camera.

If I buy the CowboyStudio radio triggers and receivers and my buddy also owns some, will they work interchangeably?

PS the 560 has a hot shoe adapter already for Sony miolta the 560II is a sony version so no hot shoe required
