B&H has put together this Vello FreeWave LR Kit with 2 Receivers to bring the benefits of wireless triggering to photographers in the field. The kit includes 1 FreeWave LR Transmitter and 2 FreeWave LR Receivers.

Transmitter

The FreeWave LR Transmitter is a versatile, reliable remote control that will trigger off-camera flash units and studio heads from up to 600' away. The 2.4 GHz frequency provides reduced radio interference and an extended range without the need for line-of-sight alignment as the radio waves will pass through most walls, windows, and floors. Eight different channels let you trigger only specific Receivers of your choice, or an "all channels" button will trigger all Receivers simultaneously. The Transmitter's tilting joint allows it to be mounted vertically or horizontally onto your camera's hot shoe. The receiver is compatible with most major manufacturers' shoe-mount flashes which offer manual power control. Pentax, Sony/Minolta, and Sony Multi-Interface Shoe flash units are not compatible.

Receiver

Part of the FreeWave radio system, the FreeWave LR Wireless Receiver triggers off-camera flash units at up to 600' away from the system's transmitter. The 2.4 GHz frequency provides reduced radio interference and an extended range without the need for line-of-sight alignment. Eight user-selectable channels allow you to control which flashes you want to fire, and LED indicators help you see the selected channel in difficult lighting.

Vello FreeWave LR Kit with 2 Receivers is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit for the price Nice compact set for the price. Have a bunch of pocket wizards but as I own 10 monolights they get pricey so decided to give this a try. Simple to set up and comes with the jack plug converter for my mono lights which Pocket Wizard charges extra for. Only used a couple of times but the range is great and I am happy with my purchase. I gave it 4 stars because the original order had a sealed box which was supposed to be a transmitter and a receiver kit but actually contained two receivers and so was unusable! Kudos to B&H as always for making the exchange quick and painless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great product. I use them with canon flashes (430 and 600) works great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works Sometimes. The sync doesn't always sync. I would be less than 10ft away, and during the corse of 50 frames, I would lose about 10 syncs. I had the product for about a week, and during every shoot I used them on, I had to remove them and switch back to something more reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase I have only tested the Vello unit in my studio. I go through a regular testing routine before using with clients. Unit works well with different brands of lights. Don't know about battery life but seems fine. I'll be using this week photographing clients.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works Intermittently I have taken hundreds of portraits using the same lighting/backdrop setup. I bought this flash trigger set close to a year ago because my last unit - a Vello kit of a different model - started working intermittently. It didn't take long for this set to do the same. At first I considered my setup, as line-of-sight from the receiver and transmitter is blocked by the lens. However, these triggers are not supposed to be dependent on line-of-sight. Also, the performance of this set has steadily declined over time, even though my setup remains the same. I used to get through a portrait session with no missed fires. Now I'm guaranteed missed fires every session, sometimes as many as 5 or more consecutive shots without the flash being triggered. This is a serious flaw when you are asking someone to hold a pose and have a lineup of people waiting for their portrait. I've changed the batteries, changed the transmitting channel, changed the transmitter position, none of it has improved the performance. I do like the controls on the unit, they are simple and easy to adjust. The price is also very reasonable. The only thing holding this flash trigger set back from 5 stars is the unreliable operation. If I can't get them working properly, I will have no choice but to replace them with something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding for the price. I have a somewhat unusual camera (Leica SL) and I wanted remote flash for it. I don't do a lot of flash work so I didn't want to spend a fortune. I first tried another brand that was more than twice as expensive as these but could not get to work with my camera. I returned that set and called B-H for advice. The support guy recommended these. I tried them and they worked first time every time. For the extremely low price, they cannot be beat!
Date published: 2017-01-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from They Kind of Work Easy and simple to use. They are wonderful...when they work. As a few people have mentioned, they misfire. A lot. Though the design and interface is much better, it’s upsetting that these barely perform better than much cheaper alternatives. With that said, I could recommend these to someone looking for a decent quality trigger with the exception that they are not shooting any type of movement where capturing that “key” shot is imperative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy another set. I used one transmitter and four receivers to trigger four studio flashes. They worked flawlessly. All day on one set of rechargeable batteries. I covered an event where we had a logo background at the entrance to a hall so I had to take quick portraits as the patrons arrived. Missed one shot of 588 because one of the flashes did not recycle fast enough. It's convenient to have one transmitter and two receivers in one kit.
