    You either want the best OR the cheapest? You can't have both.

    If you are serious about your photography and you want it to be reliable, you may have spend a little cash but not a great deal.
    I use and have for the passed two years, a Hehnel Combi TF. Cost me about 37.00 as far as I can remember but works very well.
    I'm sure there are more expensive models but this one works for me.
    Hope this helps. Wink

    The hiviz units are ok if you want to use infra red triggering.

    don't get infra red if you want range or you are behind a tree or something like that, get radio transmtter costs 65.00 but worth it.

    yes infra red is line of site only, and has a more limited range than radio.

    or you want one that does what you require, but not with a flamboyent price tag.

    Are you aware that the cheaper wireless triggers don't come with ETTL which means you are working with fully manual flash?

    I have Pixel Pawn and now Pixel Rook

    Both good

    Rook have the advantage of the transmitter taking AAA batteries - cheaper than the watch battery the Pawns have, and also, you can "group" flashes and shoot with the transmitter AND a flash on camera.

    Pawn are great if you're shooting bulb as the transmitter can act as a remote shutter release and has a bulb setting. really useful

    Both are fully manual, which is a challenge at first - but you learn SOOOOOOOOOO much very quickly
