Excerpt: Hi, I live in Australia Melbourne, I bought several items from this store and thus far I have experienced nothing but the best in service, customer and product quality. The ST Speedlite Transmiter is an excellent item and I would Personally Recommend it to any photographer. The quality of service in this store is such that If I were to find another store that offered the same items at a lower price I would still buy it here.
Excerpt: This is a good basic optical transmitter. It does everything you would expect EXCEPT it does not have group C. If that matters, then this will not fit the bill. There is no earthly reason why Canon should have left that out - more the pity because otherwise this is a great little device. It is really easy to use and works seamlessly as it should.
Excerpt: Was so excited to have a transmitter that worked in TTL mode. Tested it with great results, but on my first shoot, it worked about 30-40 percent of the time. Was extremely frustrating to have no idea why it was working. Was indoors (heard it didn't work well in direct sunlight) and had the speedlight positioned on a softbox a few feet in front of me and a litle bit to the right. After a few days, I finally figured out what I was doing "wrong.
Excerpt: i use this little guy to shoot portraits on location specially weddings....i don't have to carry truckload of strobes and heavy tripods,all i need is 2 little flashes and mini tripods. this helps a lot and very easy to use...I highly highly recommend this product.
Excerpt: It works fine indoors, but it fails whenever I try to use if outdoor. Maybe because of the sunlight the transmitter doesnt communicated with the speedlight. I lost many great shots during a fashion photoshoot because of it. I would recoment it for indoors photoshoots, not for outdoors..
Excerpt: I purchased this to use my flash off camera for portraits, and it works as intended. I would prefer to have the new 600 -RTs and ST-E3 due to the radio transmission function, but they are not in my budget at the moment.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output, Versatile
