Interfit Infrared Transmitter for Flash Heads with Infrared Slave Receiver

You Pay: $35.59

This unit fits onto any camera's hot shoe, and it emits an infra red beam which ensures triggering of all Monolights and AC Strobe Power Packs that have an infra red receiver except Dynalite.

Triggers an infra red receiver -- built-in, or added on to your monolight or power pack.
Triggers, even from a Canon's hot shoe, which usually has problems with other brands of infra red triggers.

Pros:
lightweight and for my purpose, fast recycling time, reasonably priced.

Cons:
Out of the box, I needed to chip-off part of the shoe to fit my 20d or 40d, otherwise, it has to be forced into the shoe running the risk of damaging both the camera and the transmitter.

It only works well when used at certain angles, it will cause one strobe to go off, but the sensor from the other strobe won't catch the same signal. It kept malfunctioning so...Read complete review

It only works well when used at certain angles, it will cause one strobe to go off, but the sensor from the other strobe won't catch the same signal. It kept malfunctioning so much during a client's shoot yesterday that I literally have to remove it and shoot tethered to my lights instead. A huge problem and my clients were looking at me like I was an idiot trying to get the lighting correct for a SIMPLE senior head shot.

    Comments about Interfit Infrared Transmitter:

    It's a good device if you understand what you're about. You're triggering at least one light and hopefully and usually, that triggers the slaves on all the rest. If one light's slave is visible, you're going to be fine. It's infrared so doesn't go around corners and such. If you want that, go Pocket Wizard. I use both systems depending on being on location or in the studio.

    Comments about Interfit Infrared Transmitter:

    Unit easy to mount and very effective..as long as you stand behind the back of the monolights so that the sensors detect the infrared beam. In close quarters that's not too good when you have to stand even with or slightly ahead of the light unit....but under most circumstances it works great!

          Works OK - Infra Red requiring line of sight, but returned it and got a smaller Strobies radio trigger instead

              The item worked intermitantly and I would consider it to be junk. Also I thought it would be much smaller than it was, it was quite bulky. I would NOT recommend purchasing this item, it's just not worth the money.

                    I use the product to drive two Interfit 300's, and it works great. Battery-life could be improved, but if you don't mind changing 2-AA's every few hours, I've found the product very helpful.

                    Not one misfire in more than 400 actuations.

                          I bought this trying to save money as I bought the expensive Interfit studio system and thought I'd be ok with it. It worked for about 2 hours & then started not firing. It was a very disappointing experience. I'm going to return it and get three of the first-class radio units, what I should have done in the first place.

                            Great start to doing the job and within less than a week the transmitter stopped working! Not good when you have jobs lined up! Went back to using sync cables (which limits my style) while I wait for a replacement!
