Since this unit will trigger on the first flash pulse, it can not be used with digital-camera TTL systems that use a pre-flash.

Wein HS reviews

HS Hot Shoe Slave is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works with one flash and not another! I'm completely confounded by this product. I have two indentical units and one works with a sunpak 333 and the other with a sunpak 383. But neither can be used on the other flash! Furthermore, the one that works with the 333 works with a Nikon SB-600, but the one that works with the 383 does NOT work with the SB-600. You will say: Oh, it's the pin configuration or the way the pins line up with the slave. I doubt it because the pins on both Sunpaks are identical. Even if they weren't identical, why is it that the one that works with the 383 does NOT with the Nikon? Anyway...when it works, it works fine. But it's not consistent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks well made Works fine on my older Nikon sb28 flash but doesn't work on my Nikon SB 800 Strobes. Don't know why???

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sensor doesn't work The PC sync port works fine. However, in my experience, there is something wrong with the optical sensor or the hot shoe. I have tried it with two no name flashes and two older model Nikon flashes in manual mode -- no response no matter how many ways I experimented. Avoid unless you are just planning to use for just a PC sync port.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect item! It worked perfectly for me. I used Sunpak 120J Pro TTL, SB-800, and Vivitar 285HV. I'm going to buy two or three more to complete mobile studio :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Answer For Slave Flash Equipment The HS Hot Shoe Slave by Wein is the answer for adding as many additional pieces of flash equipment as you may wish. With this enexpensive, very easy to use device any flash can be converted to a slave flash in one or two seconds. No wires, no additional equipment, no sending unit, not even batteries are needed. It is hard to believe the device even exists, that it works so effectively even at a considerable distance, and that it is priced so low - less than $40 ...! Good bye underexposed pictures!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bonafide Garbage Don't waste your time and money It worked when I got it. I reached for it a month later and the only way I could fire it was to point my SB800 directly at it but it had to be touching it. This was true in a well lit room and a dark room. Actually 1 star is way too high.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It Smoked two flashes It did work the few times I used it for about a year or so, but then I tried it on the same old off the wall brand flash that I used it on before, and when the flash fired it was unusually bright, and that flash never worked again. Then I had an old Vivitar 285 and it didn't work until I turned the flash off and with the switch off it fired three or four times, and that was the last. I threw the slave and both flashes in the trash. over

Rated 3 out of 5 by from HS Hot Shoe Slave not with SB800 This might be a great product but it doesn't work with the Nikon SB 800. The trigger voltage needed is too high for the SB 800 (slave needs 5 volts). It does work with the Vivitar 285 though which only needs 3 volts to trigger slave. The cheaper peanut slaves seems to work fine with the Vivitar 285 too. Had to return HS Hot Shoe as I thought I needed an optical slave for Nikon SB 800 so not sure how reliable it is. I then discovered the SB800 can be fired remotely so a slave is not needed at all!
