Need some triggers for 580ex IIs. I really love that you don't have to mess with synch cables with the Strato since it has a built in hot shoe. And I don't have to worry about getting a cradle to fit it on the light stand. How comparable are they to the specs for the PWIIIs? Just trying to see if I should order the Stratos now or pre-order the PWIIIs.


5D3 + L glass = FUN!

I'm in the same boat leaning toward the Strato. I'm looking at getting three receivers total and with Strato it will be $212. With the PWIII it will be 417 almost double.

Here is a nice review of the Strato II's http://flashraw.com …ti-wireless-flash-trigger (external link)

i would seriously. look at PW mini tt1 and flex tt5 ive used them and you get ttl also. they are a bit more but ttl makes it a little easier to swallow the cost.
