For those of you who have been following this, i have been struggling with these radio triggers I bought through an Ebay seller. I used them again for a shoot on the 15th of January and the darned things just kept changing channels on me. I ended up giving up on them and going back to the old ones I had been using.
I e-mailed the manufacturer and, can you believe this, they told me that there was something wrong with that design and that they had fixed the issue in the current model. So… they told me that I can return them to the seller for a replacement.
So I e-mailed the seller. I was told — this is even better — that it was Chinese New Year and that I would have to wait until after the 31st of January to get any response from the seller. Go figure.
When I finally got a response from the seller, it turns out I will have to mail the triggers to CHINA at my OWN expense for a replacement. Which I will do, since I paid $130 for the things and I don’t want to fight with them. Though if it’s too expensive to send them back, I may file a complaint with Ebay for resolution. I don’t see why I should have to pay MORE to get something that works as originally advertised.
So anyway, the update is this: Don’t get these triggers unless the new ones actually do work. I would not recommend them as it sits; if the replacements work, I’ll let you know.
