    I would like to sync my Canon Rebel with some off camera flashes. I don't have Canon flashes, but rather a third party brand. I am looking for some inexpensive hot shoe radio triggers.

    Also I am looking for light modifiers for the flashes. Any recommendations for mounts and modifiers themselves?

    Thank you,

    Kkamin

    I recently picked up a set of Cactus V4 radio triggers. I've only used them in a single room, but they have not misfired as of yet. I use them with Nikon gear and the flash set to manual control mode. The only issue I had was with when my SB-600 went into 'Standby' mode. I had to fire the shutter to get it to 'wake up' and then fire again to fire the flash. To solve this, I just turn disable 'Standby' when used on a lightstand. No big deal.

    Overall, I'm very happy with them. Not the best built, but unless you beat them up, they should last a long time.

    Another vote for the Cactus V4. No trouble here after many uses.
