Thanks for taking the time to make that. It was nice to see them in action. I had been leaning toward PT-04 IS/GY, but your CTR-301P's look pretty nice. It's nice to have something besides Cactus in the cheap category.

Cool review.

I picked some of these up a few weeks back and love them. Haven't had any problems or misfires with them yet and for the price they are great option of the budget photographer.

Nice video review.
I bought a set recently, but haven't taken it out for a shoot yet. The weird thing is I cannot even consistently trigger the flash from across my living room with clear line of sight.

In "W" mode they communicate by radio not IR or by flash so line of sight shouldn't be a problem. Are the batteries ok? Try replacing them.

I shot a log cabin this weekend with flash units placed in bedrooms while I was in the kitchen and living room areas shooting. No miss fires.

Jon.
