    What triggers do you use for your 5D and why? (Not talking about flash, by the way; when I did a search on the forum for trigger I got almost exclusive flash hits)

    I have a new to me 5D and regular used a trigger on my previous camera, so I know that I want one, but am debating wired or wireless...

    Thanks for any feed back.

    Search for remote, that will give you more hits on that kind of triggering :)

    I use Pocket Wizards. I already have them, so I figured why not use those.

    That's an expensive solution for a set of dedicated camera triggers though.

    I use the Canon cable release or Pocket Wizards. I think I got my EOS to PW cable here for cheaper than the official Canon cord.
