    I have a D70 and SB600 and would like to know which radio trigger would be best to enable off camera flash use please?

    I'm looking to spend no more than 50 so that rules out the ones tested by Will Cheung on here.

    Any ideas gratefully received, many thanks and a happy Christmas to all

    Have a look on Ebay in the Photography section, There are some UK based items within your budget, That look just right for the job.

    I take it you have tried the Commander/Slave option availaible on the D70 & SB-600 ( CLS Lighting etc ) Where you can trigger the SB via the cameras onboard.

    For sure it works, But does have limitations ie: Bright light/ Line of site, Range Sad

    A radio option has none of those issues.....Wink

    Its a 2 flash set up, But I'm fairly sure they do single ones for around 28 quid.....Wink

    isn't it strange the prices these things go to in auction, here's the same thing via Amazon for 40

    here

    I'm thinking about getting one as they get quite good reviews, then again, I may go for the Seculine Twinlink from WE

    LOL....Quite agree, Its a case of buyer beware, And shop around, " Fleabay " is fast becoming " FleeceBay " and I'm not pulling the wool over your eyes.....Smile

    These days I use Ebay, Just to find if something actually exists, Then I go direct to the company or outlet, Saves a fortune not only in item prices, But postage as well.

    Now thats a neat idea, Why is it we don't have people in the UK thinking this stuff up.....Sad Such a simple idea too.....Smile

    Many thanks for your responses.
    Ordered an RF602 set from Cotswold photo on ebay, they arrived yesterday and work fine.
    Excellant service from Trevor and the team there.
    Thanks again and have a very Merry Christmas to all.

    Mark - I'd be interested to hear how you get on with this as I'm looking to get one in the new year.

    Its a toss up between the Seculine and the RF602 at the moment.

    Can you use the RF 602 via pc cable at the camera and gun ends? (I want to be able to power the main light via the trigger and the subsidiary lights via my ST-E2 so need to leave the hotshoe on the camera vacant)

    I also bought these from Trevor a while ago. They are very good for the money, see a quick test here

    i bought my triger flash for my Nikon D80 from Ebay, got it from Hong Kong, wasnt expensive, think it only cost about 20, watch Gavin Hoye and he uses what i bought to take photos of water droplets,, just youtube it and it will come up, i have had no problems with it
