What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

This is an optical slave that plugs into any strobe with a Female Household receptor. It "sees" the light from any other line of sight flash unit within 30', and fires its connected strobe instantaneously.

If for some reason it doesn't fire, just "reverse the polarity" by plugging it in the opposite way.

    Comments about Speedotron Optical Slave Tripper - HH Male:

    I was in the middle of a shoot with a model and using my speedotron set-up, when all of a sudden after a mere 20 years, my slave died on me. I panicked that I wouldn't be able to replace something that must be so antiquated...but nay, B and H had just what I needed in stock and I received it within days. It works perfectly and it's so simple. Just plug it into your power pack and go!

    Solid Performer--Beats Micro-Tek junk

    • Compact
    • Durable
    • Easy to Use

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Good Line of Sight Trigge

      Comments about Speedotron Optical Slave Tripper - HH Male:

      Sometimes you just don't have enough Pocket Wizards for an elaborate lighting set up. This economical plug in is just perfect for those line-of-sight applications. I tried Micro-Tec before and they blew up before I made the first exposure--there's no diode-resistor to lower the voltage being kicked back thru. Micro-Tek was just a jerk so I'm sold on The Pocket Wizard-Slave tripper combo quality
