RadioPopper JR2 overview

  • 1Description

The RadioPopper Jr2 Transmitter is a 16 channel, four group radio transmitter that operates on the 902-928 MHz, ISM band and is capable of adjusting the output of the flash using a separately purchased Jr2 receiver for Nikon i-TTL or Canon E-TTL/II flash units. Triggering and power control from distances of 300-1750' depending on conditions and environment is possible.

The transmitter's simplified, intuitive backlit display works on an easy to use button and dial design that indicates power levels, group selection, radio channel selection local or remote control and remaining battery power. The transmitter gets 20 hours of run time on two AAA batteries and weighs 1.7 oz. Triggering at sync speeds up to 1/500 sec is possible with cameras that have leaf shutters. The Jr2 Transmitter will also trigger a wide variety of RadioPopper receivers without power control. Please see the features section for a complete list.

Dial Operation - Selecting groups
Power levels are adjusted by simply rotating the adjustment dial. The adjustment is made to the highlighted group (or groups) with the frame around it. You can highlight all enabled groups at the same time. Adjustments are applied to all enabled groups and settings can be locked in
Toggle Groups On and Off
Enabling and disabling groups is easy. Just click the button for the desired group and it will toggle on and off. When toggling on, the power level will remain where it was when toggled off
Simple 9 Stop Max and Min Power Control
Power levels are set between 9.0 at maximum to 0.0 at minimum. The increments are based on an EV f/stop scale. One full increment change on the display of your Jr2 Transmitter is equal to one f/stop change on your camera.
Save Settings
The Jr2 Transmitter provides four memory locations for saving lighting setups. Each memory location can save a snapshot of the present settings, including which groups are enabled, which groups are highlighted for editing, and the power levels of each group
Recalling Saved Settings
This allows you to quickly restore previously saved settings and immediately resume shooting with your creative process uninterrupted. You may exit the recall mode at any time without altering the present settings by tapping the P button. The unit will resume normal shooting mode
Setting 1/3 Stop or 1/10 Stop Increments
Select between either 1/3 stop or 1/10 stop adjustments. When in 1/3 stop mode, each step of rotation of the dial will adjust the power level by 1/3 stop, and similarly in 1/10 stop increments when set to 1/10 setting
Setting EV vs % Mode
Each group many be independently set to a stop accurate EV scale, or a more approximated percentage % scale
Compatibility
The Jr2 Transmitter will trigger the following RadioPopper devices: RP Nano Receiver, PX Receiver (when used on Canon compatible speedlights), JrX Receiver (the group used for controlling JrX Receivers must be changed from EV mode to % mode. You will not have stop-accurate control of legacy JrX Receivers, though you will be able to approximate power level control from the % scale which approximates the dial position of legacy JrX Transmitter units. Remote power control of Nikon or Canon I-TTL/E-TTL/II flashes is possible with purchase of a dedicated receiver

    RadioPopper JR2 reviews

    Jr2 Transmitter is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great features but terrible design Let me first emphatically state that RP absolutely nailed it with on-camera remote flash adjustment. Secondly, the Jr2 system is a very good upgrade from the original JrX and RPcube design. However... RadioPopper left in a significant design flaw that is an absolute deal breaker in reliability. The receiver unit will split in half over time with the weight of a flash. I am talking to RP right now about warranty repairs just a month or two shy of having these for a year, and they want to charge me 30% of purchase price each to fix the units, under warranty. Absolutely not worth wasting your money on these. Don't even bother getting excited about remote levels adjustment, it's not worth having your equipment just stop working when you need it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wished It Worked This looked like a great option to the Pocket Wizards, but the transceiver unit I received wasn't operational and I've decided to return it along with the two receiver units. I just can't trust something to work at crucial times when it doesn't work out of the box. I really wanted to like it as it does remote manual flash control and the price was tremendous, but the fit and finish felt cheap on all units and of course it was non functional. I guess it's back to the drawing board, and the PWs I've been avoiding because they're so dang expensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good I have had the Jr2 triggers for a couple weeks now and so far they have been very reliable. I like being able to adjust the power of my remote flash from the transmitter. I use the transmitter in the hotshoe when I am shooting wedding formals and portraits and then I use a PC Sync cable and mount it to the bottom of my camera via the 1/4-20 screw for off camera flash during the reception. I have had Radio Poppers in the past and they too performed well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy reliable transmitter This is replacing my JrX transmitter. Works perfectly with older JrX receivers and of course the new Jr2 receivers. This new design makes it very easy to configure multiple groups. Using AA batteries is a big plus over the more expensive CR123.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from very sad to say, these are way to expensive to be disposable I have had trouble with these since I bought them - spent $$ on a transmitter and three receivers- they don't hold a battery charge - the plastic on the antennae doesn't stay on- so of course the cheap spring is exposed and now all of those have broken off. Stuff rattles inside them - I can't have unreliable triggers -today was the last straw - they stopped working during a newborn session- NOT HAPPY with Radio Popper. AT ALL.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big improvement Huge improvement over the JRx system, which I loved. The 4th group is welcomed, and the ability to shut lights off from the trigger is a huge plus!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Junk I've had these for over a year now. They have not worked correctly since the day I received them. I haven sent them back to radio popper multiple times for repair. Every time they are sent back to me, they function They always come back exactly the same. They work when I'm in a small room but misfire too often to be reliable. When I move my lights more than 30 feet away, they stop functioning.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Luck Calling Radio Popper Product is a 4-5 star product but good luck when ordering from Radio Popper direct and calling them and get an answer. I own over $ worth of products from them and seems every time I call I can never get them ( or is it him??? ) One man company with one line ??? I will continue to order or use this product but will never never order from them again even if 1/2 off. I have no idea if or when I will get my Jr2 reciever ( 2nd one). Its called service after the sale. I will order from B&H only.
