The age of digital miniaturization has reached the Radio Slave category, with the MicroSync Digital 4 Channel Radio Slave System. Using a hot shoe mount transmitter about the size of a CompactFlash memory card, it instantly sends a wake-up AND triggering signal to its mated "H" prong receiver plugged directly into your strobe pack or monolight. Any off-camera flash that has a PC sync terminal may also be fired, using an optional sub-mini to PC sync cord.

This 4 channel system functions through walls, at distances of up to 100 feet, and works with a top camera shutter speed of 1/180 second. The default channel is #1, but the frequency may be reset easily, should there be any local radio interference.

Note: Does not work with Speedotron Black Line packs built 1999 or before. Also, a Wein Safe Sync is highly recommended with any Speedotron power pack, to reduce their high sync voltages.

Compact and Economical

Smaller and less expensive than the currently leading radio slave.

Triggers Flashes or Cameras

Triggering of all Canon, most Nikon (NOT D40, 40X, D70, D70S, D80), and all Pentax Digital SLRs is possible, with an optional trigger cord. Simultaneous firing of camera AND flash is possible, using 2 MicroSync sets -- transmitter #1 in your hand, transmitter #2 on your camera's hot shoe (on a different channel), receiver #1 with appropriate cable connected to your camera, and receiver #2 connected to your flash (on transmitter #2's channel).

Adapter Plug Available

Converts 3.5 mm (Mini) to MicroSync's 2.5 mm (Sub-Mini) style plug. Order part #VMC114.

Conserves Battery Power

Transmitter uses thin, lithium battery.
Receiver "sleeps" until the instant it's needed.
Its 2- AA batteries last up to a year, according to the manufacturer.

Triggers With or Without Hot Shoe

If your camera has no hot shoe, but has a sync terminal, attach the transmitter with an optional sub-mini to PC sync cord.

Two Kits Available

This set is also available with a Monoplug style receiver (#VMTRM).
