  1. Hi Brian – Hard to tell from the photos, but I don’t think I see a red beam AF emitter on the front of the transmitter… is there one on there? Please say yes. 🙂

    1. The Sony triggers are much better made than Flashpoint. While I wish the we’re cheaper – you get what you pay for. It is possible to get HSS at 1/8000 – just be aware you’re really clipping the flash output at that speed.

  5. morning to u all.please why is it so difficult to get a sony trigger flash?
