....the cheaper the better

Only really need one transmitter and one receiver at the moment, but any more would be considered. It's to be used manually so no ttl required

thanks

If that doesn't work out. Do an ebay search for YN-04 and don't worry if it says for Canon or nikon as there's only one firing pin on them and they'll work fine...

If you can afford... Cactus are great (via gadgetinfinity)

cheers Dave...it's a case of the cheaper the better. Had a set of cactus triggers before. Awesome kit, just can't justify the price at the minute. On a shoestring these days

These http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-Channel-Wireless-Flash-Trigger-YN-04-II-Receiver-Onl... will do the job, I have a set (my girlfriend now uses them on her fuji HS10) and they do the job... Nowhere near as reliable as my Cactus-V4's though!

I have the cactus v3, used them on my Pentax k10d. I think the cactus v4 should also be available now.

Hi, I've a set that I can do for 12 delivered (2nd class). I'll check on their battery and exact type when I get home - think they are YN-04 style (I got them a while ago but never actually used them). It's one trigger and one receiver all nicely boxed!
