PT-04 wireless flash trigger

Just picked up a set of these wireless flash triggers from cowboy studios off Amazon. I am excited for the possibilities they can create in my portrait and wedding photography. Off camera flash is advantageous for many reasons not the least of which is more flattering and natural light since shadows are revealed and not removed. The flat 2D image look with harsh highlights you get with on camera flash rarely turn out worth keeping.

More info about off camera flash and how to use it can be found at the Strobist blog.

I plan on testing these units out and putting them through their paces to see if they are as capable of some of their more expensive competitors. First impressions make me think they will not be as durable as the pocket wizards but if they are as good of performers then in y opinion it may not be an issue.
