Interfit INT492 Hot Shoe and Strobe Flash Trigger Set

You Pay: $44.00
Product Highlights
  • 4 Channels
  • Transmitter and Receiver

The Interfit INT492 Hot Shoe and Strobe Flash Trigger Set is ideal for mounting hot shoe flashes onto light stands.

Standard shoe mount flash units can be mounted directly onto the integral hot shoe, which also provides the triggering power to the flash. Studio strobes may be fired from the PC Sync terminal on the side of the receiver.

Four channels provide enough isolation from most other radio frequencies and enable you to work on a "closed" system. The unit is powered by long life batteries and works on 433MHz at a distance of up to 100' (30 m) in an open area.

Note:Sony/Minolta flashes require #STRE114 to operate with this trigger set

    This is a no-frills wireless solution that is easy to use. The best part is that it will work with most hot shoe flash guns even without the proper plug. My SB800 nor the Vivitar 283 have a compatible plug but both work by simply slipping it on the hotshoe of the reciever. The 1/4 inch adapter works with studio strobes as well. I purchased two sets and have 2 recievers and 2 transmitters.
    one transmitter on the camers hot shoe and one to handhold to trigger the recievers for metering. The transmitter has a test button to trigger the recievers. They have no provisions for transmitting TTL data to flashguns but don't carry the price tag either.
    For a low cost wireless solution to off camera flash use they are worth looking into.

    I've used these with my Canon 5d and 580exII at home and on a press trip to the southwest and found them to trigger dependably, but then, I've only owned them a short time and haven't tried to fire with them in an environment heavy with other radio-control signals. The receiver seems like it's going to fall off its weak little mount, barely supporting a meaty Speedlight like the 580. I don't recommend using these if you're clamping your flash onto a moving object or mounting it to a lightstand in the wind, but they should be sufficient for home and studio use. Otherwise, you might need to do some kind of jury rigging to keep your equipment safe.

    I have a set of these for over a year, I have not hade any problems with them as far as flashes firing properly. The only time I had a flash not fire was because I had accidently change a setting on the flash. I am giving 4 stars because a sturdy construction would be nice.

        Comments about Interfit INT492 Hot Shoe and Strobe Flash Trigger Set:

        I occasionally have need for off-camera flash photography and was looking for a relatively inexpensive radio transmitter/receiver set. This is it. I've used it a couple of times already, I'm very satisfied with it, there was an occasional misfire, but overall I found it as reliable as the commander mode setup on my Nikon DSLR. I saw a review or two suggest this product wasn't the strongest construction but it's good enough. My only complaint would be that the instructions could be better. A good deal for the cost.

              Can't beat the price! I have used this unit with both my Nikon SB600 as well as with an off brand flash and it works fine. I needed a radio controlled unit for a few times when my preflash would be a problem with other shooters or in hard daylight. Where the light weight construction might be an issue is attached to a light stand with a modifier attached, the additional weight feels like it could break the receiver. But so far so good!

                          Some additional info about this item:
                          - the transmitter uses a mini 12v battery, the type you find in car remote or modern garage opener.
                          - the transmitter has a button to fire off the flash remotely so you can use a light meter to read exposures.
                          - the receiver uses two AAA battery.
                          - the PC port on the receiver takes the standard PC connector and hotshoe, so you can connect it to two power packs without a splitter (you do need a hotshoe-to-PC adapter though).
                          - the supplied sync cord is PC-to-3.5mm audio jack, there is no connector for the 2-prong household type, you need to buy a adapter yourself. (although I believe the supplied sync cord is for the transmitter to be used with cameras without hotshoe.)

                            I chose this product specifically to use with my Fujifilm X10. I don't like the flash built into these smaller cameras, so I bought a small flash unit and the Trigger Set by Interfit and it works just the way I want it to. This way, I can hold my strobe anywhere I want for any effect I want. It also comes with a handy screw mount for attaching to a light stand. This was exactly what I was looking for and very affordable.

                                I bought these as an alternative to the more expensive Pocket Wizards and they work great. I've shot atleast 500 photos with it now and it has misfired a few times but nothing too bad. I also got the 2 year extended warranty as a back up.

                                  My old trigger only worked about 80% of the time. It was frustrating to not get the strobe to flash when you had a good shot. This one so far has worked every time. I even tried it in different rooms of the house and it still worked. I definitely will keep this one for a while.

                                    I do industrial photography, I can simply not have wires & cords all over, creating an additional security hazard. I also wanted a cheaper alternative to pocket wizards. This transmitter & receiver kit works wonderfully. I also got an additional receiver to trigger a second flash. Since the set has four channels I use it in multiple ways: To trigger only one off camera flash. To trigger both at the same time or by having multiple setups on different channels. The receivers are ready to be screwed on any standard tripod or light stand and also swivel. The only downside that I found with this trigger set, is that when you put a full sized flash gun on the receiver it seems a bit flimsy under the weight. A quick fix could solve that issue. Other than that, great buy, totally worth it.

                                    It works great. I'm using a Canon T1i and a Vivitar Flash. I've done 3 shoot with it already and all have been a success. The only problem is that the build is extremely cheap. While moving the flash/tripod/receiver, the battery back fell off. Both pieces feel like toys, but preform well.

                                      The Interfit Hot Shoe and Strobe Flash Trigger set is a good introduction into the remote flash market. I am currently using these both as a remote flash and a way to use my older Vivitar 283 with my Pentax K-r digital camera. The 283 has an output voltage way higher than the camera can handle and this trigger set negates this problem. My only concern with this item is the relatively weak construction. The set screw that should allow you to angle the receiver for tilt is just a bolt and nut on the plastic housing of the receiver and is not very sturdy. I would suggest using the receiver via a sync cord and mounting the flash to a light stand on its own.
