Quantum Flash / Radiopopper

p.1 #1 · Quantum Flash / Radiopopper


Has anybody used a Radiopopper JRX with the Quantum Flashes? I ask this because I have a chance to purchase the poppers for a really sweet deal. I heard that Poppers can be used to manually control the qflash power like what the copilot does.

Thanks

They will.. but in order to do so a Qnexus is needed for each Quantum flash to receive the IR signals from the RadioPopper.. as well as the RadioPoppers on each flash as well.

It seems a roundabout way to control remote flashes using radio when instead you could just fit radio. Instead, you're using IR and a set of IR/Radio/IR converters. Unless you already have the Qnexus?

The JrX system, which you asked about, will remotely control the power level of Alien Bees, White Lightning, or Zeus strobes as is. If you add the RP Cube you can control Canon- or Nikon-compatible flash units. If you have a Q-flash Trio, it'll slide right onto the hot shoe of the RP Cube, and if you have a T5dR or similar you would use the appropriate QTTL module (the D22w-R in the case of your Nikon D800).

Don't confuse the RP JrX system and the original RP PX system; the former is pure radio, and the latter is an optical-to-radio and radio-to-optical translation system. There's also the new RP Nano system, but I have no experience with it; I do know that's it's a basic radio trigger, though, with no remote power-adjustment feature.
