          My Q-flash is now totally wireless and no batteries needed. It also frees up my other reciever to use with my camera flash or as a hair light

            I use this for syncing my 5D-R's to my pilot unit. It works perfectly. In typical Quantum fashion it is not flashy, but it functions flawlessly.

                Purchased this item to go along with my QT5-dR, DW-22wR and FW9T. Mounting is easy and works instantly when the battery is turned on. No need to add additional batteries or make any adjustment. Very convenient and easy to use. When connected using the DW-22wR on the hot shoe and the FW9T connected via accessory cable all of the information from my camera is sent directly to the flash. I really appreciate the ability to control the Fill from the camera vice having to make the adjustment on the flash unit.

                Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

                    I use these receivers on my 2 T5DR's with the Trio on my camera. These units are small and light weight and attach easily to the side of the T5DR. Total control of the remote flashes from my camera mounted trio. I have the remotes set in separate groups which allows me to change ratios individually for all 3 flashes. The best TTL, works every time.

                          If you have a T5D or T4D, this is nice because no wires are hanging all over. On our equipment it fires 90% of the time... I can't figure out when it doesn't fire why that is. The only thing I can think of is sometimes the antennae on the Freewire unit attached to the camera isn't straight out?

                            I haven't had it long enough to give it 5 stars but I know it will live up to it.
                            I switched from Pocket Wizards and I love the fact that I do not have to have any additional wires hanging from my Q5d. This just pluge in and with the supplied velcro it stays put.

                                      This product works very well. The only difficult thing is ordering and figuring out what to buy and what cables to get. Once ordered it is simple to use. This is wireless and once tested is extremely easy to use even on a bad day. My friends are jealous.

                                      I've only you'd it for a few test shots so far and it works well. No issues so far.
