p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Interfit Strobe Triggers


Hi everyone,

I recently got the Interfit strobies radio triggers for off camera flash and while shooting a concert last week the flash kept going off even though I wasn't pressing the shutter on my camera. I had the same problem a few weeks earlier when shooting at a house party.

In both situations there was a complicated setup of electronic music equipment so I'm wondering if signals from the sound systems caused the flash to go off. Has anyone else had this problem with Interfit or other radio triggers?

It's not a major problem and I was still able to shoot the show. However I did miss a few shots because the flash was recharging when I was trying to shoot.

Thanks for the feedback.

By the way, here are some photos from the show: http://cadjblog.wordpress.com/2011/11/13/dazzletine/

Very likely. They can be susceptible to interference.

Are these the unit you are using?

If so they are the first gen ebay trigger and they are pretty useless.

I would just trash them and buy the Yongnuo RF 602

They are one of the BEST cheap trigger in the market. Many have used them and hardly anyone have issues with them. I've been using them since they first came out and have ZERO missfire so far.

Yep, those are the ones. Looks like I may replace them next time I have spare cash lying around.
