    Comments about Wein Micro Ultra Slave (Household, 400' Range):

    I use it to trigger an old Sunpak "potato masher". I've been using it outdoors for over a month and a half and the ambient light hasn't caused a misfire yet. Haven't checked range yet, however, so can't vouch for that.

      Comments about Wein Micro Ultra Slave (Household, 400' Range):

      This wein slave is great. I have been using Wein products along with other slaves for 30 years. This slave is simple. Plug it in and it does what it susposed to do fire the flash when it sees a signal from other flashes. I use it in my studio and is attached to a Lumedyne head for a background light and hair light. I was going to buy a Profoto air Transeiver, but for this low cost it does the same thing, fire the flash. It plugs right into my Lumedyne head so no cords required, but if I need to use it with another flash that doesn't have the H prong end, it has a terminal that sticks out to accept a sync cord.

        I have an old Speedotron Brown Line 800ws power supply with M90 light heads and have not been able to use the system with my Nikon D90. The Micro Ultra allows me to fire the strobes with the on-camera flash. It works fantastic.

            I ordered this slave to trigger a second Speedotron power pack and I couldn't be happier. My studio area is not that large and this slave fires every time. Ironically enough, it replaces a Speedotron slave that wouldn't trigger at all in the same space. Go figure.

              Comments about Wein Micro Ultra Slave (Household, 400' Range):

              I bought this to trigger an ancient 1970's vintage Sunpack "potato-masher" portable strobe I still use to light backgrounds and dark corners in studio and architectural settings. This old thing still works fine in 'manual' mode and it was my first 'big strobe' so I've kept it.
              The XL8 makes it even easier to use eliminating the cord to the other optical slave I was using. It works fine even when the strobe is 'facing away' from the other strobes in use so it's perfect for my application. It's simple, sensitive and solidly built. I haven't used it in outdoor or high ambient light situations where almost all opitcal slaves suffer but that's why my main gear is radio triggered. If this thing can see any kind of direct or reflected flash under normal room lighting it will fire every time.

              had issues in a night shoot. Slave was behind shoot thru umbrella and would not fire. Had to rig it do it was completely in view of triggering strobe. Not reliable and returned. Bought more expensive unit.

                    I am not a wedding photographer, I shoot video and commercial photography. When I went to the hotel to see what I was up against. I new I would need multiple strobes for a long and winding staircase, so I got two Micro Ultra Slaves and no problems, worked perfectly
