RadioPopper Nano Transmitter Reviews

Good Product

By Sharon
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2015-10-26

I purchased this as a back up to the current RadiPopper system that I have, which is not available anymore. This works well with the receivers I have currently. It does not come with every detail instructions so it took a little time to work on the setting of the channel as my current receiver was different in its settings. I would recommend to anyone looking for a good set but does not want to spend a ton.

Great For Non-TTL Strobers

I always manually set my speedlites so I wanted something reliable and with good range. These Made-in-the-USA triggers do the job and I don't worry about them not working during critical movements. Yes, you can save some money buying cheap Yongnou triggers, but if you're doing paid work, the peace of mind you get from this product is well worth the money you're saving.

It's Simple

Yes it's simple and that's a good thing. Easy to figure out, easy to use. I mount mine on a Lumix point and shoot to trigger an off camera flash. That in turn triggers two other flashes on slave units. It makes simple amateur gear produce professional looking images. Thus the complex becomes easy.

Delicate but works great

Basic and simple way to sync my 3-point headshot lighting set up using Nikon SB900 and SB600. Have only used it indoors and it works excellent in a 20x15 room. Way more reliable than using the camera flash to trigger the remote flashes. Lightweight plastic is pretty flimsy. Feel like it might break if it fell. Not much instructions as others have said. Spent most of the time setting up my camera to sync with the bank and channel. Super easy to set up on the transmitter and receivers.

Good to have this wireless transmitter

I owned few brands of wireless transmitters and receivers, most of them when used in indoor with studio light, they gave you very disappointed. Most of times MISFIRED, means never flash.So now I owned this brand RadioPopper, Very Good never MISS! The only things when I set my shutter speed to 1/250 secs, bottom part slightly dark. So you only can set to max @1/160 secs will be perfect.

Great for my studio and on-location using my Photogenic strobe lights. I like that its low profile. Don't like that it takes batteries that aren't easy to find at any store. Have to keep some on hand.

Massive improvement over previous

The older Jnr set which were ok but had issues spoilt them. The new ones are 10 times better more robust, NO misfires, battery life is massive unlike the old ones. LED lights are easy to see in the sunshine (old light was rubbish). Worth every cent. They can be turned on when handling them in your bag but self turn off eventually. Not a problem if you are aware of this. I use multiple lights for Architecture and are often triggering internal lights from the outside of the house in full daylight.

question

Is this compatable with the Qflash QF8C trio ( will it fire it from my camera)?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Quantum has a Quantum FreeXWire receiver built into it. If you wanted to use the RadioPopper transmitter this would not be compatible unless you connected a RadioPoppper receiver to the flash.

question

with this work with the Fuji X cameras?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, the RadioPopper Nano Transmitter can be used in the standard ISO hot shoe of Fujifilm X-series cameras and wirelessly trigger an off-camera flash connected to a RadioPopper Nano Receiver (B&H # RANANOR). Do note that these transmitters/receives do not transmit TTL information, therefore, you would have to set the output power on the flash manually.

question

Can the Nano Transmitter be used with a speedlite mounted on camera?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Nano transmitter does not have a sync port. It can only be hooked up to the camera via the cameras hotshoe. So it cannot work with a flash on the cameras hotshoe.

question

will the nano work the speed light in TTL or do you have to put it in manual mode?

I bought the Transmitter to use with my Smith Victor Strobe Set. I've never used it with a speed light so I don't know.

question

Can I use this as a shutter remote?
Asked by: Chad S.
I believe so however I've had nothing but problems with my set on nanos. My original set was sent to the home office here in the States. They couldn't find a problem and sent me a new set. I could only get the transmitter to work on my hot shoes by depressing down on the unit 'just right' to get my strobes to fire.Short answer do like I did and buy a set of Pocket Wizard Plus X units. I've wasted money on other less expensive units and since I've gotten the Plus X set all my miss fires have gone away. Pros use Pocket Wizards for a reason, reliability.

question

Hello, can the transmitter control each receiver one at a time or in groups, say if I wanted r-1 and r-3 to fire, then set the transmitter to fire r3 and r-4 or then fire r1, r-2, r-3 and r-4? I hope I asked that right..? Thanks..
Asked by: Robert H
The transmitter can do both functions. Both the trx and receivers have a 4 channel selection. Set the trx to ch 4 and any rec. set on 4 will fire. To trigger a rec. individualy, just set all recievers on different channels and and set the trx. to the channel of which ever one your want to fire.
