Hello, can anyone recommend some compatible radio triggers for some Flashpoint 620's? My intention is to use them mainly on location with a battery pack leaning toward the PaulBuff Mini unit.
Any help is appreciated, Thanx

C

Pretty much any trigger with a 1/4 inch plug. I use 602's personally and they work fine up to 1/200th of a second

Steve, may I ask what triggers you have and do you utilize them with AC or DC power?

C I'm using Yongnuo RF-602's and use them both with DC and AC power. Like I said though you can use any radio trigger you want. The CyberSyncs you're looking at will not be able to control the light. Only the Alien Bee and Einsteins are controllable with that trigger.

Thank you Steve! That will make things a bit easier without having to try several different brands that are questionable. Thanx again

I use 602's also with Flashpoint IIs. Indoors I just use one RF trigger and let the others slave using their internal triggers. Never tried that outdoors - I just use a trigger for each strobe.
