sync with radio triggers
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.
May I know what radio trigger do you use?
they are the Yongnuo RF603c FSK 2.4GHz
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.
Your a star. Thanks very much. It explains why they won't work :)
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.
The RF603c i've got have a pc port. Will that still work?
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.
