Today is a BIG day here at LightandPixels.com. Not only did I get my brand new RadioPopper PX radio trigger system today, but I also cut my first video review!
I have been waiting to make the move into the TTL radio triggers for what seems like forever now and I finally made the move last week. You can see the details about how I made that decision in this post.
The first impression of the RadioPopper PX system is good, very good. I have no buyer’s remorse at this point. As I said (a lot) in the video, I’m psyched! The build of the trigger feels good and so far I’ve had incredible results at least in terms of reliability.
The video below lets you meet the RadioPopper at the same time I do. In a near future video I’ll do some testing for reliability at distance and also try to do some photography with them – that is what it’s all about after all. So, you’ll want to keep checking back and see how it’s going.
I hope you enjoy the video and can learn something new about the RadioPopper PX system.
UPDATE: I’ve posted a distance/performance test you might find interesting too.
If you were paying attention to the video, you’ll notice I said I was giving away my old 16 channel Gadget Infinity radio trigger. I want to pay forward some of the support I’ve gotten from so many of you in the Strobist community. Giving away my old GI trigger set is just one small way I can do that. That’s right, you’ll get a GI poverty wizard transmitter and receiver “with a new set of batteries” and I’ll ship them to you anywhere in United States at no charge. If you’re outside the states please understand that I don’t have a clue about shipping overseas and can’t even guess what it would take to do so. Sorry about that, but please play along anyway I’d still like to hear from you.
So, how do you win the GI trigger set?
First I ask that you help LightandPixels.com to grow by linking from your website or blog to LightandPixels.com. The link is not required but it would sure be nice. Second, leave a comment on this post explaining why you’re a Strobist and why you would be a better photographer with a GI trigger set.
The winner will be based solely on my opinion of your comment and link. I’ll select the winner on April 30, 2009. Please be sure to leave a valid email in your comment so I can contact you about shipping.
