    I'm curious if the extra few inches the wireless receiver adds to the flash height will impact the flash's position with an umbrella enough to be concerned about of it is a non-issue.

    Anyone with experience?

    It probably doesn't make that much difference, but I use mine attatched by a pc cord rather than mounted to the reciever. My vivitar came with a cord and I also have some hotshoe to pc cord adapters for my canon flashes that have no sync Jack.

    If you do mount Them on the reciever, the reciever has a hinged mount so you can angle the flash down, or even point the flash head up then tilt the receiver down 90*. It works, abeit being too flimsy for my comfort.
