RadioPopper JR2 overview

  • 1Description

The RadioPopper Jr2 Receiver for Canon is a 16 channel, four group radio receiver that operates on the 902-928 MHz ISM band and is capable of adjusting the output of the flash using the separately purchased Jr2 Transmitter. Triggering and control range with both methods is from 300-1750' depending on conditions and environment.

The Jr2 receiver's simplified, intuitive backlit display works on an easy two-button - Menu/Select principle that indicates power level, local, or remote control and remaining battery power. The receiver gets 8-10 hours of run time on two AAA batteries and weighs 1.9 oz. A 3.5mm sync cable, phono plug adapter, and 2.5mm adapter are included.

16 Radio Channels
The Jr2 Receiver can be set to one of 16 different radio channels
Groups
The Jr2 receiver can be set to one of four groups, allowing for maximum flexibility of your lighting setup. By setting different lights to different groups, they may be adjusted separately. All lights on a given group will be adjusted together.
Remote Control of Power Level
In Remote mode, the power level of your attached lighting device is controlled remotely from your transmitter (purchased separately). The Jr2 Receiver will control the attached light, setting it to the power level commanded by your transmitter
Local Control of Power Level
In Local mode, the power level of your attached lighting device is controlled directly on the device, for example, the display on the back of your flash or the slider on your studio light

    RadioPopper JR2 reviews

    Jr2 Receiver for Canon is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from *Will be* a great product, but not today These just came out a few months ago, and apparently they aren't flying off the shelves. I say this because when I received the two receivers I purchased together with the Jr2 transmitter, they did not offer wireless power control of my 430 EX Canon Speedlite (one of the marquee features of this product). After some correspondence with customer support, I was told that I needed to ship back the units so the firmware could be updated, which is another thing to be aware of. You can't update the firmware yourself, despite the fact that the units have a USB ports for doing that. The software they will be releasing for this isn't available and they won't say when it will be. At this time, the firmware can (apparently) only be updated by shipping the units back to them (at your own cost by the way). When you do ship them back, they may sit on their shelves for well over a week before getting serviced, although customer service will probably tell you (as they did to me) that it will be a quick turnaround. From the time they received my returned units, it was 11 days before I could see that they were on their way back to me.FYI...I have been using (and loving) the RadioPopper Jrx series of transmitter and receivers for the last few years very happily. In my opinion, they're the best on the market in the cross section between features and price. It's just that these Jr2's are new and they obviously weren't ready for prime time - neither the product, or the company to support them. Buyer beware.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Radio Popper Jr2 Receiver Picked this up to use with my Jr2 transmitter. It works just fine firing my speedlite and adjusting the power levels. It would be nice though if both units working together could acuity tell you what power level you are at instead of guessing 1-9. The build quality could be a little better in comparison to what they are asking at this price point. But in the end it works and I guess that is what matters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great with Canon 580EX ii's I purchased these Jr2's because of Pocket Wizard having RF noise interference with the Canon 580EX ii speedlights. These things work just as good as Pocket Wizard and are very extremely reliable up to 300' away making a great alternative. At first I was having some firing problems, but I realized it was the batteries.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool for off camera flash Easy to use and having the battery level visible is a huge help! I love that it's manual, since that is what I use anyway. I'm giving it 4 stars because the first one I bought had to be sent back to the factory for battery connection issues and it doesn't offer high-sync capability. Otherwise a great product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as compatible as they claim Doesn't work with Yongnuo YN-565 or Sunpak 120Jii flashes. The YN-565 is the most popular third party Canon flash, and the Sunpak is one of the most popular Canon bare-bulb flashes. So their claim Compatible with most popular Canon compatible flashes is false. Returning 1 transmitter and 3 receivers

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jr2 RadioPopper Receiver We bought these to use in our rental photography studio. The units works great but horrible on batteries. But if you are trying to remotely control power of your Alien Bees there isn't any other options out there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big improvement over JrX RPCube and receiver I use RadioPopper's JrX system for multi-strobe setups in product lighting and real estate interiors, and remote lighting inside Ancestral Puebloan ruins. Control of strobe output power at the camera lets me change a shot's 'look' on the fly, without having to visit each flash individually. It's the main reason I use RadioPoppers over my old Pocket Wizards. The only problem is the 1/8 stereo cables between RPCubes and JrX receivers - they can give bad connections and unreliable triggering. They've always been one point of failure I wanted to remove. The Jr2 receiver eliminates the RPCubes and their cables. Now I have reliable triggering and no worries. The Jr2 receiver's 10-hour battery life isn't a problem either. I use multiple sets of rechargeable AAA NiMH batteries, and I figure if a real estate interior session lasts longer than three hours, I'm in trouble. Battery power for my strobes and the RadioPoppers runs out about the same time anyway. I simply make sure I charge all the batteries before a shoot. Highly recommended, along with the Jr2 transmitter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatly improved! Easy to configure! A perfect pairing to the Jr2 transmitter. Now includes a hot-shoe! Easy visual controls to set group & channel. Works flawlessly. Now using AA batteries is a huge plus over the more expensive CR123.
