    question

    Anyone try this with Yongnuo YNE3-RX to control Alienbee from Canon RT system?
    Asked by: Jeff
    The AC9 adapter can be used with either a FlexTT5 or FlexTT6 to connect to an AlienBees or White Lightning strobe. Using a MiniTT1/FlexTT5/FlexTT6 on the camera with an AC3 ZoneController, you can adjust power to each AlienBee in 3 different Zones via the AC9. It will not communicate with a Yongnuo trigger or Canon's RT trigger.

    Is it real the fact that they dont work with the vagabond mini?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Not True. Both AC9 canon/ Nikon can work with AlienBee and Vagabond mini properly. Just remind,you do not turn-on the modeling lamp definitely so you can safe the battery life longer.
