Dot Line DL-0130 overview

  • 1Description

The Dot Line IR Flash Trigger with Hot Shoe is actually 2 products in one. It's got a cold shoe that slips into a standard metal shoe like one that you'd find on a camera bracket with a female PC connection on the side that uses an optional cord from the shoe to the camera. Alternatively, a 1/4"-20 tap on the bottom of the shoe allows you to mount it to a light stand or other support. The IR sensor in this unit will recognize a flash built into a typical DSLR up to 70 feet away and trigger the flash that is connected to the shoe.

    IR Flash Trigger with Hot Shoe is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Hot Shoe! Don't even think twice! If you are looking to purchase this hot shoe then get it! It's very reliable, works every time and makes flash photography a blast! With this hot shoe you can hold the flash in your hand (the camera in the other) in any direction without setting up -or the restrictions- of a lightstand. You could mount it on a lightstand too though. All for this low price! I use this to trigger my Canon 600 flash which unfortunately doesn't get triggered by my Einstein flashes even when the Canon 600 is in slave mode ( Canon 600 flashes only communicate whith each other). I brought the Paul C Buff recievers to connect to the Canon flash, but they were hanging down and the recievers fell to the floor if the stand was moved (of course, I couldn't hold the flash in my hand). I wasn't interseted in looking for ways to hold the recievers secure to the lightstand - I didn't want to tinker with more gear. I just use these IR Flash Triggers and they work fantastic. As with most optical triggers, the flash needs to be in manuel mode- not TTL. I will be purchasing another 1 or 2 Canon 600 flashes and will get this hot shoe trigger for each flash I purchase, plus another one for spare.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work with my cheap kit flash With my camera package I got a PD DSLR 300 flash. Never heard of it? Me neither. It is a very simple manual flash and I thought I would try this IR for a little off camera flash work. All the settings in the camera were set as I've seen others do it but I had no luck triggering the flash with this unit. I also have a Yongnuo 685 and thought I'd try it to see if it was my flash or the IR trigger. I would never actually do this (have a YN622C TX). Still didn't work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for older non-slave speed lights I use this trigger for older speed lights by nikon that only work with the on camera flash and CLC system built in to nikon cameras. I don't use that system in the studio and this trigger allows me to use flashes like the SB-600 for hair and rim lighting, etc. It works great with my Elinchrom strobes but will occasionally need a second pop because the speed light goes to sleep. I can also use it hard wired with a PC cord.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I initially tried the Wein HS-XL at 3 times the cost because they originally got great reviews. However, mine arrived DOA so I looked for an alternative solution. This Dot Line is awesome. It just works, hands down every time. Huge time and money saver. Great product, great price. The only thing I would change about this is to make it so the optical receiver was 360 degrees

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old flahes are Alive Now I can use all of my flashes with PC cords to a cold shoe, configured as slave units. Things I don't like.... jummmm The bottom cold shoe mount has not locking turning wheel. But it's ok for the price. And it works nicely with an extra adapter.-

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive, Reliable Wireless Triggering These IR pickups are great as an inexpensive alternative to wireless radio flash triggering. Will not get interference from ordinary white-light flash. Must have an IR initiator or trigger on camera such as Nikon Commander.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked 1 time The IR trigger worked 1 time. Unfortunately, the 2nd time I tried to use it was past the return period. It has not worked since. It may still work with a PC cord, but that was not the reason I bought it.
    Date published: 2015-03-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cost Effective Solution For the price, this trigger is a great solution for that extra light burst. It's very compact and responsive. Flash easily mounted and removed from base. Also, easy to attach to a stand.
