San Antonio Photography Meetup Group: PhotoSA Message Board › Wireless triggers

Wireless triggers

Does anyone have any suggestions for where to find reliable wireless triggers (either transmitter + receiver, or transceivers) that are not super expensive. I know a lot of people use Pocket Wizards, but for 2 transceivers I'm looking at $300, which is a little high for me right now. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. (I shoot Nikon and will be using it for newborn photography.)

I have been using a CowboyStudio wireless trigger on my Pentax K-5 for a little over a year. I bought an extra receiver for a second flash. It is incredibly cheap, but so far seems to be doing the job. I thought that if i liked it I would buy a more expensive one when it broke, but so far it is working great. Here is a link to the Amazon site.­

ive had good experience with Cactus triggers and managed to get a couple off ebay for 40 bucks.

They are transceivers and i used them on my 60D and my Alienbees 800.
No ttl, but i just adjust as i need.

Thanks! I will check those out. Definitely more affordable for me right now!
