    sync with radio triggers

    Hi,
    I have just purchased a Mamiya RB76 and i can fire my vivitar 285 direct with the sync cable but for some reason i cant seem to fire it using my radio triggers. I am using a sync cable with both trigger to lens and receiver to flash.
    Any help will be much appreciated.

    It may not work without a work around since it expects a signal from the camera to transmit/trigger.

    I have four of those, and try to modifiy one according to this...

    which cost me less than 10 cents and 2 mins of time.

    Actually, I was bit dissapointed too. But work around is rather simple to do.

    Also expect that you may need to recharge/change batteries often since, it will be transmitting continuously when in use.

    How you will manage to connect RF603c to RB67, if you do not have hot-shoe? Since, RF603c do not take input apart from hot-shoe.

    those triggers have to be mounted on a smart shoe of a DSLR to fire. I hear there is a fix where you can jump a contact with a ressitor to use off camera n on mechanical cameras.

    do a google search, that's how I found the fix article

    Also, I've read that the RF60x series might not sync up past 1/250 or so. the CTR-301Ps can, as reported, go up to 1/500s.
