WOW this thread was actually helpful to me. I use the tamrac Microsync kits for my two speedlight (soon to be 3 speedlights) and HATE HATE HATE having to continuously hit the pilot button to bring them back to life, this thread helped because I just realized how to make them stay on!


-On a side note, this thread was a FUN read!

6 MONTHS. This thread has been dead for 6 MONTHS! I thought everyone had forgotten about it - why did you have to go and dig it up?

And my batteries are fine, thank you very much . *humph*

I just wanted to make sure that your problem was cured on a permanent basis and it wasn't just a temporary fix.
