        Comments about Wein XL8-E Micro Ultra Slave:

        I am a professional photographer that works in many diverse settings. I have two of the XL8 ultra slaves and one of the -E models. These work very well in almost every situation I have been confronted with. Having a backup cable connection is a definite plus. The circuitry appears to protect newer cameras from high voltage damage posssible with older strobe power units. They adapt well to diverse ambient light, so using them outdoors for fill light is a snap.

            These Wein slaves are great! I use them on shoots with all kinds of strobes, profoto, bron, etc Inside, outside and with lights outside windows they are perfect. When the pocket wizard fails these babies light it up.

              I wrote the review above...and since then things have gone squaky ... it does not work consistently at all and is unpredictable ... my first review was done with very simple set-ups...when I began varying f-stops, speeds and camera to slave position (never more distant than 25') things became very unpredicatble...may be operator error, but as of now am disappointed.

                  I have D80 and an old Profoto Compac studio strobe that was firing on my preflashes. I got this Wein Slave and problem solved...now I can use it with my SB-900s. Note that SB900s can use iTTL but Wein Slave does not read it so my Profo flash strength must be set manually. Also I only use it in my garage studio so cannot attest to the distance...otherwise been working great for about 3 weeks.
