      Does what it is supposed to do. It remotely fires the flash or will fire the camera shutter.

              Decent quality, does exactly what I need it to do. Triggers either the shutter, or the flash, depending on the setting. Unfortunately, it won't trigger both. So if you're using it for a remote shutter trigger, you still need an additional flash transmitter.

                  Comments about Vello FreeWave Fusion Basic Wireless Flash Trigger System for Canon Cameras:

                  First off, there was nothing wrong with the remote. The problem is with my combination of equipment. I have a Canon T5i with a Sigma EF-610 DG Super Electronic flash. I quickly found out that this combination of equipment is not compatible with the Vello Wireless Remote. There is some sort of a miss match between the wireless receiver and the Sigma hot shoe. The remote functioned as advertised as an external trigger for the camera but would not fire the flash. A few quick phone calls to B&H and Vello verified my suspicions. If I were using Canon camera and a Canon flash, I am sure that the Vello Wireless Remote would have functioned well. On the positive side, technical service at Vello were quick to respond to my request for service, as were the technicians an B&H. I had no choice but to return the unit to B&H.
                  There may have been a way to make contact with the firing pin on my flash but I chose not to start modifying any of the equipment.
                  I would recommend the Vello Wireless Remote to a friend once he/she was sure the their combination of equipment was compatible.

                    I use it as a remote shutter on my Canon T5i and it works beautifully. The hardest part was determining which cord to use, but that is pretty straightforward. It even tells you in the manual.
                    The biggest downside that I can think of is that the transmitter's battery isn't a more standard battery (it uses a 2/3A).

                        very sensitive and works great. Works exactly as specified in the description. When working in varying lighting levels, everyone must be mindful that in no way will this device help you adjust your exposure levels, or change any settings for that matter. This is a simple press and shoot device. When shooting with varying light levels, several other models should be used to adjust exposure and sensitivity levels.

                          I use my Trigger System for my use with my Canon Rebel xti and Canon 580ex flash. It worked perfectly but this wireless system has an antennae that runs out parallel to your lens. It did not interfere with my shots but I didn't notice it when I looked at the pictures.

                          I bought this system to connect my canon 430 ex 2 to my 5d mark II and it has worked very well for me so far. I have sometimes found that you need to be facing the receiver for the flash to fire put all you need to do is twist the flash and your good to go. Overall I would give it a 7 out of 10

                                I used it both to fire a flash and as a remote trigger for my camera. It works well, as advertised. The box comes with 3 cables and it took me a little while to figure out which one was intended for my camera. The channels selectors are a little too tiny for my liking but the upside of that is that it is unlikely that they can be changed inadvertently.

                                  These are my first set of flash triggers for using off-camera flash and they functioned flawlessly. If you are looking to open up other avenues of flash with speedlights, this is the way to go.

                                  For the price, they definitely serve their purpose. Used to shoot interiors, the setup is a little confusing at first, but the flash pretty much fires every time it is supposed to. Again, for what you pay, it's a good product.

                                    I shoot photos for rollerblading and I'm by no means a pro, I just needed a little step up from those really cheap flash triggers and these do a great job. The range seems great, and so far they have work exactly as I predicted the would.At this time, I really have nothing negative to say about these things.
