      Recently purchased the radio popper transmitter and receiver. They are super easy to use, maybe a little too easy! The only reason I gave 4 and not 5 stars is that switching channels was time consuming to figure out because it doesn't come with any directions or papers. You actually have to tap and hold the tiny button to switch channels. Also there is no on / off switch and it only works manual flash (which I prefer) but no on off switch means you cannont stop the flash from firing. Over all, though, great easy to use product.

      I bought the Nano trigger, and two receivers. They will not work with my Canon 1d Mk11n, and my flashes 580ex, and 420ex. I have called customer support twice, during business hours, no luck. I bought them to work with my Westcott portable umbrellas, and they won't work, because you have to take off the flash mount bracket, so you can screw on the receiver. When doing so, it removes the umbrella mount, rendering it useless. Also, unless you are going to buy the Canon flash extension, they won't work, because of a lack of plugs on the flash, to connect to the receiver.

      Nano receiver goes with the Nano transmitter. It also goes with me whenever I take my flash gear. My recommendation: Don't leave home without it.

            Basic and simple way to sync my 3-point headshot lighting set up using Nikon SB900 and SB600. Have only used it indoors and it works excellent in a 20x15 room. Way more reliable than using the camera flash to trigger the remote flashes. Lightweight plastic is pretty flimsy. Feel like it might break if it fell. Not much instructions as others have said. Spent most of the time setting up my camera to sync with the bank and channel. Super easy to set up on the transmitter and receivers.

                I unpacked the receivers and was able to get it to fire my 430EX and my Smith Victor Strobes. I own a Canon 20D and a Pentax 1st*D I was able to trigger my Canon 430Ex and my Smith Victor Strobes with a little tinkering. That was a concern weather I could use the triggers with any camera and flash units I had.

                  This is the most reliable radio trigger I've used. I use it with both of my Alien Bees B800's and have never had any issue with triggering the lights. Sync's up to 250th of a second. Used indoors and out on portrait and product photography without any issues. Great product and I will be buying more.

                        I've used the old JRX model for years and was delighted that these new nanos had been released. I replaced my JRX's with them and i'm extremely pleased. They work great fresh out of the box and are very consistent. Not having to deal with an aux cable and RPcube to fire my flashes is a breath of fresh air. And they're really inexpensive too!

                        The reciever does not fire my Canon 550EX. It does fire my Canon 199A and studio strobes. Seems like the hot shoe on the Nano is picky about how the hot shoe foot on your strobe fits. I contacted RadioPopper and they sent me replacement units and provided return packaging aand postage. Very good folks to work with. However the units do not work with my Canon 550EX but as I plan on getting a LumoPro 180 for manual flash and they work with my 199A and serve as a backup for my studio strobe transmitter/receiver wireless units I'll live with them.
