Reliable solution for Canon 430 EX II and Canon 270 EX II

Does exactly what it claims to do with Canon 430 EXII and Canon 270 EX II. Note that the 270 isn't a manual flash, so you can't adjust the power, but this flash will fire. 430 EXII worked every time. What I like about it is that it doesn't require batteries and is small enough to fit in the side pocket of a suitcase.

Pros
  • Brings joy
Cons
  • I don't remember but there was something

Requires strong flash feedback to detect and trigger

Works fairly well with my Canon G7X Mk II but seems to require very strong feedback from the built in flash to be detected and triggered - it just doesn't work. works well in a larger area. I have a Canon HF-DC2 flash which performs much better under the same conditions. I was hoping to use a Canon 270EX II flash with it but it didn't work.

Pros
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • Slightly torn

Works great - no batteries needed!

I received it the other day and I use it a little, but I immediately liked it. I tested this with the 430EX III-RT with another flash directly on the sensor. I was able to run and control the output to serve its purpose. I still have to check the effective area inside/outside. I think 10 meters is good.

Pros
  • A sea of positive emotions
Cons
  • Repair

Nice to have in your pocket!

This thing is so cool! This is the external version of what is built into some flashlights. Tried both flash and flash, works great. The only time it was missing was when the cord I was plugging in got a little loose. Haven't tried it outdoors yet, but I think the device will cause sunlight to overload the sensor and make it difficult to function properly. I've read of people having trouble using these types of triggers outdoors.

Pros
  • Certified
Cons
  • Unreliable

Does not work in high light conditions.

I received this device and tested it at my home and it worked fine. The problem is I didn't buy this fixture for indoor use, I intended to use it outdoors for accent lighting. I can't bring myself to work outdoors during the day, even in shaded areas. I even tried holding the trigger flash directly in front of the sensor but it still didn't fire. Put it back indoors when the light is low and it works again. For this reason the device is almost unusable for me.

Pros
  • nice thing
Cons
  • mostly good but...

It worked perfectly! Not only did it work perfectly, so did I.

When I first bought my Profoto B1 kit I decided that 2 lights would be enough and if I need a back light or two I can use my Canon 600EX-RTs in optical mode to light them up activated by Profoto. After much research, I found out that Canon EX Speedlites are only optically compatible with each other. The purchased products did not work with the Canon EX-series Speedlites. I continued to search the internet, found the product on Revain's website and ordered two of them. I received them today…

Pros
  • Few competitors
Cons
  • Weight

Cheap, always works, and it turned all my old "dumb" flashes that weren't smart enough to communicate with modern electronic triggers into very docile and practical slave flashes. Will buy a few more of these. The only downside I could find is that the base shoe is a bit small and doesn't fit snugly when inserted into a flash holder, but it's also threaded so it works great on a light stand. The flash stays on these little plastic flash stands but they tend to slide out if you press them hard…

Pros
  • Dope 🔥
Cons
  • Expensive

Happy with the purchase

Finally I can use my old flash. I tried it a few times and it worked as expected. I have a Canon camera as well as a set of pocket assistants and two other adjustable flashes. One thing that was unclear was making sure you're buying the right one. This one focuses more on Canon. I bought mine without knowing it and was pleasantly surprised to find out I bought the right one. In any case, be aware that this thing fires at full power, so it's a good idea to set up your flash so that you can…

Pros
  • Flash accessories
Cons
  • Slightly wrinkled

Pros
  • Camera and Photography
Cons
  • Out of fashion

It's cheap, it always works, and I've taken all my old "dumb" flashes that weren't smart enough to communicate with modern electronic triggers and turned them into very docile and handy remote controlled flashes transformed. Will buy a few more of these. The only downside I could find is that the base shoe is a bit small and doesn't fit snugly when inserted into a flash holder, but it's also threaded so it works great on a light stand.
