Wein L8 reviews

L8 Micro Slave is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part time alave For years I have used these slaves in my studios in NYC and they never failed me. Of course shooting in a studio is a controlled enviornment so I never had stray light sources to deal with. The slave I bought from B&H was used for large group shots in a house with tons of windows on a bright sunny day. The slave is so sensitive that it fired the speedotron strobe it was plugged int when someone walked in front of the sunlight coming through a window. It's a good product but the user must be aware of the ambient light level and absolutely keep it away from direct sun light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly with Novatron 600VR The L8 Micro slave works perfectly with my Novatron 600VR. It even works at 1/128th power manual flash allowing me to shoot as fast as I want to. It seems very well made and comes with a 2 year warranty (which I didn't realize until it was shipped to me). It is very easy to use and I have made over 1,000 pictures using it with out any problems. It is very cost efficient and makes sync cords obsolete. At first I wasn't sure it would work because the prongs were a little thinner than the original sync cord prongs but I found that the connections fit just fine and fires every single time. I can even bounce 1/64th -3 off the ceiling and get my strobes to fire!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work I have only used it at one event so far, in a studio setting, and it seemed to work great. I did discover that it needs to have a good amount of light from the master to trigger it, once I found a good position for it, it worked flawlessly. I actually used it to trigger an older Quantum Q-flash that could not be used with any of the rest of the equipment I had because it was outdated software, so I thought this might be an easy fix and it was.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Using as a slave from hot shoe flash Had a little difficulty getting it to slave because of ambient light and relatively low light from hot shoe flash. Had to get the position on base unit (Novatron) just right. Ended-up using sync cord in this situation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wein micro slave Not as sensitive as I would like. In a large room with second light at 40 degrees to right side,slave plugged in to side of flash head nearest to on camera flash. 12-15' away it didn't fire. Moved to 8' from second flash it worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like you'd expect I use this on an older Novatron 240 with 2 lights to illuminate a 5 x 7 Hiliite. I use a SB800 on camera at 1/128 power from about 10 ft. Triggers every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money... Not much to these guys, and that is what is great about them. I plug them into Sunpak 622s (3 of them, the other is set off by a Wein trigger. They have been working as expected, will work with any unit that has an H household plug slot. They work time after time after time.
