p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Pocket Wizard vs CyberSync vs Phottix Strato II


Simple question.

I've used both and what I need is to be able to set up two channels operating 2-3 lights each on but going at the same time.

Which is better for this? I know my cybersyncs i've had before had a tendency to trip over a broader channel. If that makes sense.

Thanks for any help/input.

Check out the Phottix Stratos 2, they allow grouping and might be just what you are looking for. I'm extremely happy with those triggers.
I just ordered a bunch of stuff from Phottix and I'm extremely impressed with the quality, especially the Stratos 2 triggers.

This guy?

Seems like it could be a real winner. Def cheaper than the pocket wizards. Anyone else have input on this system?

Yup, those are it...check Amazon though they are cheaper there. Also make sure you buy the one's for your camera brand!

Lots of triggers group like this so you shouldn't have a problem doing this. I use PW III's with PW TT1/AC3 and TT5 all intermixed with built in PW receivers in studio lights. I've run up to 4 groups.....multiple lights in each one at times.

I spent 2 years with the Cybersyncs and they were great, the only problems ever came from the bad sync cables.

A year ago I ditched them and went to Strato IIs, partly to ditch the cables, and partly to get the group functionality. LOVE them.

I have both. The stratos are rock solid. I also like the fact that you can mount a flash on the transmitter and also fire a receiver at the same time. Cant do that with the Cybersyncs but the cybersyncs havent failed me either.
