The Dot Line Corporation's RS-RT03K/4CHS Wireless 4-Channel Flash Trigger Kit w/ Hot Shoe & Umbrella Mount fires any photographic flash unit from any camera that has a hot shoe or PC outlet. The transmitter has a standard hot shoe as well as a standard PC synch cable for cameras that do not have a hot shoe contact. It runs on a replaceable 12V battery (included), which is good for up to 20,000 firings.

The receiver has a PC outlet and a mono synch jack for studio flash units along with an adapter for 3.5mm synch flash units. It runs on two AAA batteries (not included) for up to 30,000 triggerings. Both the transmitter and receiver feature a stand-by mode that saves battery power. The wireless signal from the transmitter is encoded to help protect the unit from radio frequency interference, ensuring that your flash unit fires only when you want them to. A test button is included to fire the flash units without exposing the image. Range is up to 85 feet.

    RPS Lighting RS-RT03K4C/HS reviews

    RS-RT03K/4CHS Wireless 4-Channel Flash Trigger Kit w/ Hot Shoe & Umbrella Mount is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good. I'm using this product with my Speedlite 580 EX II, in combination with Westcott speedlite softbox. So far it's done it's job as a wireless transmitter, and it's built better (more solid) than a cactus transmitter) which is what I was using before it fell and broke. The umbrella mount built in is a nice idea, but it doesn't have a screw to tighten the umbrella rod in place, so I was too scared to use it after seeing it wasn't that secure, and had to just double up with another umbrella mount anyways, which was kinda annoying. Overall, I'm glad I have it because it got the job done, but there are certainly ways to improve on it. Not a bad buy compared to a pocket wizard.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad for the price For the price the unit rocks but it does have some really bad parts. As other have pointed out the flashes do not stay on the unit that good if you tilt the unit down the flash/flashes will fall off even if you have them on tight. So if you buy this unit do one thing and Tape the flash in place plus the Umbrella hole is a bit loose too so be careful with that to. If you are working on a small budget and need a wireless flash unit this is a great buy just remember to use tape. Bottom line for me is I would recommend this to a friend that is working on a budget as the unit works great.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for It works just as you would expect. I used this product when I have limited space and want to use my SB-600 off my camera. I would have given it a higher rating but the plastic it is made of is a little flimsy and the hotshoe connections are very loose. It seems like my flash kind of hangs from it. But contact is still made and the flash fires consistently. I would recommend it, especially for the price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was too loose on the on the hot shoe Very loose on the hot shoe. If was tight I would have kept it. Can not afford to loose a flash over a small thing like that. Maybe they will look into replacing the part .

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good equipment is very good, although I have not tried with two flash, outdoor use for wedding photos, models and portrait sessions. Sometimes he misses a shot, but I think it's because the flash is not ready. It's great to fire the flash placed behind the subject being photographed. The tripod grip system is rather weak, they could design something better and trembles when transported and it appears that the flash is going to fall ... and is dropped, especially in the careers of wedding photos. Despite all this I am very happy with the kit, my partner and also has them too happy, not a bad buy at all, the operating range is very good, I have taken photos at 15 and 20 meters away from where they are devices located all successful ..... worth buying ... yes, just be careful when carrying the flash mounted on a tripod, you can drop the flash.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sent it back twice, once for good. I was extremely excited to receive this product, especially as we had a our 2nd wedding coming up. We got the package, set it up, put our 430EX II on it, and immediately the contacts pulled away from the unit from the weight of the flash. We sent the item back, but they didn't send the replacement out soon enough for us to use it for the wedding. We ended up just buying and using a 10' cord and flash bracket for almost half the price from National Camera Exchange the DAY of the wedding, which worked flawlessly. We just received the second trigger in the mail yesterday, and although it is the Series II, and it is made a little better, I just don't trust it to hold my flash up, or to function consistently enough to do weddings. I should have known it would be too good to be true, but B&H handled both returns extremely well, so I don't regret trying.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It Giveth And It Taketh The product works just as I want it to, but the construction is very poor. All receivers I bought just popped off at the seam and had to be taped backed together. Also, the hotshoe transmitter can be finicky at times, so make sure you've mounted it well. So, it's great that it works but is really disappointing that it literally falls apart.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and works well Works great right out of box after adding batteries. 430exII fits snuggly and securely. No misfires. For the price works great. The construction isn't top of the line but neither is the price. But for the money better than I expected. Great for off camera lighting. Fits easily in backpack. Great buy. Will buy more very soon.
