Ok here's a quick poll just to get a sense to what gear is veryone using to trigger their lights. I cannot list every single triggering system out there so I will be only going for the major brands.

There are a lot of options when it comes to wireless triggering depending on your budget.... most of the commonly used and more expensive ones are Pocket Wizards.

There are also the Cybersync and Skyport which are also good and are cheaper than the PW
then there are the Cactus...not so reliable but cheap.

At present either Cactus V4s or Canon IR.

I will be moving to the Radio Popper JrX Studio system once they are available in Australia.

Seems AlienBees are kicking some butt.. wow I thought Pocket Wizards would dominate this poll.. I am an Elinchrom Skyport user myself , but I have owned PW PLus II and Mini and Flex before but sold it all. I got to say I love the reliability of the Skyports and from all the bunch I think they are the sexiest design of all :)
