RadioPopper Jr2 Receiver Reviews

Still needs improvements

By Scott

The AAA batteries have to be replaced often. The lcd doesn’t light up...big drawback in lowlight venues. Feels very fragile

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.

Big improvement over JrX RPCube and receiver

By Mark

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.

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.

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.

Not as compatible as they claim

By Ed J

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

Very pleased

question

Will this receiver work with an older rp transmitter? I lost one of the rp cubes but see that you dont make that model anymore.
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately no. I bought an older version of this thinking it will work with my RP JR2 setup (1 JR2 transmitted, 2 JR2 receivers). The older RP JR1 received did not sync or recognize the RP JR2 transmitter. Recommend by like for like in this case.
