If I am gonna be triggering 2 alien bees and eventually I may slave in Speed lites, what are the best wireless units to get?!
As I recommended in my previous post, cactus v5 triggers are great! They can trigger anything that has a trigger port. I forgot the size exactly, but it's basically regular stereo headset plugs. Some speedlites have these ports, some don't. I know alien bees have this port though. Speedlites can also attach to the triggers via hotshoe as the top of the trigger has a hotshoe similar to a camera with a hotshoe on top of it.
When I'm shooting events, I have a cactus trigger sitting on my camera's hotshoe. Then I have my speedlite sitting on top of that trigger. That way, I can use my speedlite for walkaround use, and also trigger my other speedlites/bees around the building to brighten up the ambient lighting.
