cheap triggers

ooooooh they make me scream with rage and sheer frustration at their uselessness, their inability to work further than 3 feet, their constant misfiring!!!

So, kinda trying out some strobist things right now, got two awesome manual speedlights, a 60x60 softbox and 80x80 octobox, both take 30 seconds to erect, but the triggers are some cheap ones I bought 3 or 4 years ago. Of cours ethey work fine inside, in a small room, well, when i say they work fine, i mean they misfire a lot less inside, and sometimes i can have the camera 8 feet from the triggers and they fire, other times when they are stood next to each other... nowt lol

Obviously went out with my camera again today, very brief shoot though, at a risky location, didnt want to get locked in again like what occured a few years back, though i thought it safer to park offsite for a change, buy oh my gooosh, lugging around a billingham bag, clothing bag, shoes, tripod, lightstand and modifiers, is not funny, not even close to funny, jeeezus! I need some kind of wheelbarrow Tongue

I hopefully have a much better trigger system arriving any day now, one dedicated to my yongnuo yn-560 III, and an rf603c for the 460 III, hopefully the rf603's will work to activate the shutter on my fuji, because using the self timer is so time consuming and boring now, i shot remotely with my old canon 350d, but my leica wouldn't take wireless shutter releases, the fuji does however, and those rf603 triggers trigger not only the flash but the shutter too if you want... Yes i do!

And i will bin those cheap and nasty ones once and for all Grin
