Wein Sync-Link overview

  • 1Description

The Wein Sync-Link Universal IR Flash Trigger can be used to trigger any flash unit that features a built-in optical slave. The Sync-Link simply slips into the hot shoe of a camera. An infrared signal is sent from the trigger to the infrared slave built-into the strobe unit to fire the flash.

The Sync-Link is ideal for use in studio settings since it uses IR, which requires line-of-sight with the flash. it can be used to increase the range of the built-in slave sensor of the flash.

Built-in regulator increases battery life substantially, and cycles to zero when not fired. It cuts off after the system is charged for the next flash.
Built-in Safe-Sync feature keeps your camera protected to a safe voltage level.

    Wein Sync-Link reviews

    Sync-Link Universal IR Flash Trigger - Hot Shoe is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stronger than I thought ! I bought this to replace my WEIN SSR which had gotten damaged in a fall. I was not impressed when I first started using it. It seemed to be much slower than my old one. I soon found out that while it is slightly slower than my older model, this is the higher power model with greater range. The only drawback is a slight delay to recharge. It's not big enough to cause any problems in the studio, but may cause problems for some. My advice - Unless you are working in a HUGE studio space, you can go with the lower power unit and have faster recycle times. I always use a wein ultra slave in at least one of my flash units, and the older, lower power model worked fine for 8 years until I dropped and stepped on it by accident.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost there Wanted a trigger for my Photogenic strobes. It works good if your strobe is parallel to the camera or in front. I was using a strobe behind me yesterday though and wasn't getting a burst everytime. I need some more time to play with it...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works like perfectly ...My assistant did most of the event I purchased this for. When I did get behind the lens the recovery time was incredible. This trigger cut out nearly all of the shadowing effects on my set and there were no cases of red eye and very little eyeglass glare. (I was playing Santa for a fundraiser - eyeglass glare was a big issue) ...

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from adequate, but could be better should disperse wider, flashes off to the side won't trigger. Build quality very poor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem solver As someone who has just made the transition in studio work to digital, the flash trigger is a perfect solution for my purposes, working with Novatron lighting equipment. I had heard horror stories of toasting digital cameras (mine are Canon) by using the original sync cord I had used with previous single lens reflex film cameras and the Wein system is a real life saver.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! I shoot a digital Canon camera and I needed to be able to trigger optical White Lightning Monolights, but I couldn't use the Canon E-TTL flash units to do it because the E-TTL pre-flash discharged the WL before the actual exposure. The Wein IR Trigger trips the WL's from the Camera hot shoe without adding light to the subject and without wires!!
