    Default Flash Wave Radio Trigger

    Anyone have any input on these.
    I've googled them and there are limited reviews.

    I would be using it with a Nikon D5000 and two Sigma EF 530 DG Super and optically triggering two other slaves.

    The main issue is connections, my sigma's do not have any trigger ports and this would entail buying hot shoes that have a dedicated line (most seem to be PC vs audio).

    Thanks!

    Check this out, if you have not done so already. There is quite a bit on the web regarding the flash triggers. I also have the Nikon D5000, but a NISSIN D866 flash. That flash works as a master, but only on the hot shoe, and only with the conventional method of transmitting. One of the limitations of the D5000.

    Thanks for the link Matt, the Sigma 530 DG Supers can act as a master or slave off camera when triggered optically by the on board flash of the camera set to 1/32 power (inside the house).

    Outside is the big issue, since there are no or limited walls, ceilings, floors or furniture for the light trigger to bounce off of - I'm looking for a more reliable way to trigger multiple off camera flashes. If I need ittl, I use a cable from my hot shoe ( I believe it is the SC 28).
