| p.2 #6 · Wireless E-TTL Flash Trigger for Canon - What are my options? |
WRONG! That 'generic' crap is CRAP! Sure it might work most of the time (more or less) but when you are doing critical paid work and shooting thousands of images at every event then you need 100% reliability…NOT 95%, or 98%, or even 99%! Paul Buff CyberSyncs (and even the old PW Plus II's) are the bomb diggity for 100% reliability EVERY time…even with a "dumb" PC cord!
I wasn't saying anything negative about the cybersyncs (I own and use them). I was saying pc sync cable (the end specifically that goes into a 580EXII) is dumb. They are always breaking, and not exactly tight. They are horribly expensive in comparison to 1/8" cables.
The 1/8" cables (the same end that plugs into the cybersync) are the ticket...much more reliable.
So I'm not saying use yungnuo or whatever, or flash butt-hole triggers.
I'm saying specifcally, I dislike the pc-sync end, and wish that the 580EXII had a 1/8" jack.
Even from PCBuff, the PC syncs are $2 more a cable.
Yeah, it's only 2 bucks, but when you buy 10 at a time, because you can't count on a pc sync cable working long term. And on top of that, you can buy 1/8" to 1/8" at your local radio shack...so if you're in a pinch, you're not like, 'omfg wtf bbq attak do I do!".
