Fotodiox WonderBurst HSS8000 High-Speed Flash Trigger

Fotodiox WonderBurst HSS8000

Fotodiox recently launched the WonderBurst HSS8000 4-in-1 Radio Slave Trigger, which is a 1/8000 high-speed sync wireless remote flash trigger that Fotodiox claims is compatible with any camera flash or strobe.

The transmitter plugs into the camera to learn the camera’s specific delay time, which Fotodiox says allows it to get ahead of the second curtain sync, or the sync delay that most cameras have. As a result, the WonderBurst HSS8000 then removes flash sync limitations and will also work as a camera remote for AF remote triggering, continuous shooting and bulb mode.

The WonderBurst HSS8000 transmitter and receiver pair run $69.95 and are available here at Amazon.com.

Additional WonderBurst HSS8000 receivers run $39.95 and are available here on Amazon.com.

Fotodiox WonderBurst NEX Delivers Wireless Flash to NEX-3 and NEX-5 Series Cameras

Fotodiox Wonderburst NEX

Fotodiox has a new flash trigger system, the WonderBurst NEX, which features the unique NEX flash mount transmitter and a traditional hot shoe receiver. The wireless units feature 16 selectable channels and a 300′ range.

These are manual-only triggers and do not transmit TTL info and the manual flash sync speeds are limited to 1/160s. Still yet, it’s a very affordable system at only $40 for the transmitter and receiver package. Check it out here on Amazon.com.
