RadioPopper has put together this JR2 Studio Kit for Photogenic with 1 receiver to give photographers the benefit of wireless triggering and power control at distances from 300-1750' away. The kit includes 1 JR2 Transmitter and 1 Receiver.
The RadioPopper Jr2 Transmitter is a 16-channel, 4-group radio transmitter that operates on the 902-928 MHz, ISM band and is capable of adjusting the output of the flash using the kit's Jr2 receiver for Photogenic 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 2 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 besides the JR2 receiver but without power control.
The Radio Receiver for Photogenic Flash Heads plugs into the body of PowerLight and Solair series monolights (except those with manual sliders), allowing triggering of the flash from distances up to 1,750'. The receiver works with virtually all RadioPopper systems and requires the kit's Jr2, or optional PX, JrX, or Nano transmitters for use. In addition to remote triggering, the Jr2 transmitter is also capable of controlling Solair and PowerLight series power levels and modeling light functions. Settings are displayed on an LCD screen built into the receiver. Since it draws its power from the flash head, no batteries are needed.
