You can either use a sync cord like the Hama Sync Cord Mini to Male PC (16') B&H # HAMPC15 or Bowens XMSR Flash Trigger B&H # BOBW5190 to trigger this monolight. https://bhpho.to/2sOSFZV https://bhpho.to/2sOSFZV

Can you use other flash triggers (like Canon) to operate and control these lights instead of the Bowens XMTRC?
Asked by: Michael
Unfortunately, Canon does not manufacture radio wireless transmitters/receivers that are compatible with studio strobe lighting. As the Bowens XMT500 TTL Battery Powered 500Ws Monolights in the above kit do have built-in optical slaves, if you are using a Canon flash set to manual mode, then the optical slave on the XMT500 TTL Battery Powered 500Ws Monolights will trigger the flash unit when they see the output from your Canon flash. (This will not work when using E-TTL II automatic flash exposure or using pre-flashes). If you have third-party radio wireless transmitters/receivers/transceivers, the Bowens XMT500 TTL Battery Powered 500Ws Monolights do have a 1/8" (3.5mm) miniphone sync terminal on the bottom of the monolight, so you can connect your wireless radio receivers/transceivers to the monolight for wireless triggering needs. However, do note you will have to set the flash output manually. The only remote that will allow you to adjust the monolights' flash output wirelessly from the radio transmitter remote would be to use the Bowens XMTR* flash trigger or the Bowens XMSR Flash Trigger for your usage needs.
