This product and its receivers works flawlessly with my Canon 5D Mk III and all my flashes, which range from 25-plus-years old Sunpaks to my Canon 600ES-RT. The receivers screw onto� a standard light stand umbrella holder and the flashes slip into the receivers hot shoes, making for easily transportable lighting setups for studio and remote photo sessions. I could not be happier with these Vello units.

Not reliable, not worth it

My wife bought a set - one tranceiver and two receivers for me for Xmas. I was thinking since I had an SB800 and an SB900 flash, with a Nikon D750, it would be a good thing to have for doing multiple flashes. I tried it at the time, it didn't work. I figured it was just me rushing through. When I had time later, I tried it, following the instructions. The receiver sort of worked, but the transceiver didn't. It would sometimes fire fine, sometimes fire with all flashes on full power, even though it was set to TTL, and a lot of the time, just fail to fire. I haven't bothered to try it on manual, as I have plenty of remotes that work fine in manual only. I usually like Vello products, but I'm sorry she wasted her money on this one. Tossing it into the maybe some other day bin, as I can't rely on it. :/

Vello Freewave Aviator Transceiver is compact and had hotshoe mount. The Vello wireless TTL Flash system when pared with the Recievers is easy. Just buy the amount of receivers needed and your set. The basis for the unit is the trans-sender unit has 3 positions A-B-C that correspond to the Freewave Aviator Receiver, then you choose the channel and and each station runs independent from this Master unit. Each Transceiver has its own separate settings and can be pared wirelessly and each station can be adjusted separately. It is so simple you read the directions, make the settings your settings and start shooting.

FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Trigger Transceiver-Canon

FreeWave Aviator Set by Vello By Steve Baslow from Portland, Or About Me Semi-pro Photographer Vello FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Trigger Transceiver & Two Receiver Kit for Canon review by Steve Baslow In the Box; Kit Items FreeWave Aviator Wireless Flash Trigger Transceiver for Canon Lanyard 3.5mm to 3.5mm Cable 3.5mm to 1/4 Mono-Plug Cable Hot Shoe Protector 2 x AA Batteries Limited 1-Year Warranty What I did with it; Lighting setup for a model session that was so simple and straightforward that instructions were not needed. Set the Group letter A,B,C , or Auto on the receiver. Then set the Channel on each unit to match either Auto, 1, 2, or 3. power on both units and your ready to go. The day of the shoot I used 2 flashes and the sun as a hair light from a window. I made 2 power adjustments on the Transceiver +/- section that corresponds to the flash it is assigned to and it worked perfect the first time. ------------------------------------------------ Macro Photography is one of my favorite things to so. I am extremely deep into photo stacking and use Zerene Photo Stacker. Well if any of you know the challenges to macro photography is that the higher the magnification the less light available and it becomes a challenge. With a flash on a free stand unit with a reflector on the opposite side of the macro subject for fill light it worked perfectly without a flaw. I was able to reduce the light volume to a very soft flash and gain some extraordinary macro shots that had such even lighting I was asked by a couple of friends why my macro pictures look so good? Conclusion; The FREEWAVE AVIATOR transceiver and receiver from Vello is slick. It is exactly a perfect lighting accessory for both amateur and professional photographer. This AVIATOR transceiver and receiver from Vello makes all the other remote wireless units I have used seem a bit complicated compared to the ease of the FreeWave Aviator in a number of times testing and using in real life situations. When I set up the Aviator Transceiver as the master it slid into my camera's hot shoe to receive TTL information and has a hot shoe on top for adding another flash to your camera to do direct frontal flash. The large LCD Screen on the unit makes it easy to read and operate. I did not need it to be hard wired to use but if you prefer to be wired the unit offers a standard 3.5mm sync port, while the transceiver adds a threaded PC sync port for more ease of use. The E-TTL / E-TTL II system is fully compatible with modern automatic modern flash units. Reliable 2.4 GHz radio frequency give a range of up to 300' without it being in direct sight

Feels sturdy in your hand, and appears to work well. A bit of a learning curve involved, but that's to be expected.
