    I've got the Yongnuo CTR-301P triggers via eBay. Very cheap, and so far almost perfectly reliable.

    The only cons I can report is that if you mount the flash backwards on the receiver it will not work or if you do not turn on the receiver or flash. Don't ask me how I know this. :blushing:

    BTW, you do not have TTL with this set-up.

    B.T.W.

    I have a couple sets of the older Cactus units...
    but they just weren't working well enough for me, so I upgraded to the Cyber Sync system and can't be happier.

    I've heard the V4's are improved. I think mine should be delivered today so I hope to find out soon. I figured for $40 they're worth a shot. If they turn out to be crap, I'll probably get Cyber Sync's down the road.

    I have used the iShoot trigger system.

    I didn't read any reviews before I bought them because for what they do, they are very inexpensive.

    There have been 2 mis-fires out of 1000 or so trigger events, but for the cost and the fact I don't use them for critical assigments, I don't care if there is an occasional misfire.

    I haven't needed to trigger them at more than 100 feet away, but they worked well at 100 feet.
