    I expect Rolleicord may need a pc-hotshoe adapter. Nevertheless, I will go with it and see how it goes.

    Since RF-603 does not seem to take input via sync port.

    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    Well, I received the trigger on today. Found it does not trigger from any hot-shoe expect from Canon d****** cameras and still I have to test with EOS 650. :-(

    It's a shame I didn't see this thread earlier, as I discovered this myself when I bought the Nikon equivalents. This information:

    is, as far as I can tell, simply wrong. This poster has a modified version, but in stock configuration they will not act as dumb triggers.

    I have a modified version myself, the details of how to do the modification are detailed here: http://nikonrumors.com/2012/06/02/di...-trigger.aspx/

    There are a few other write-ups available around the internet on the subject. Once you have done the modification, the transceiver is turned into a full time transmitter (but can also act as a receiver in the right configuration). This modification shouldn't be too difficult if you have a soldering iron to hand.

    Yes, this is the same thing. All the modifications are tailored towards making the transceiver a full time transmitter (two green lights) without needing a signal from the camera (so the Canon and Nikon ones are switched to transmitter mode by the camera - via the complex hotshoe pins - but without these, they will only be in receiver mode).

    Thats good news. Seems that YT video mod is not so complicated to modify it.

    I just bought a used Yongnuo RF-602 setup that I hope will work OK. Won't know until I get it though. The person said he used it on a Nikon D90 and that is what I have. I hope to try to use it on the non-D----al cameras I have which I prefer to use.

    The RF-602 will work fine on your non-digital cameras. Every transmitter is a permanent transmitter, and every receiver is a permanent receiver.

    I sure hope it works on the film ones. I don't shoot much digital and I got it with some mono lights. The lights was what I wanted anyway and this RF-602 was in with the deal.
