Sunday Sync: Pixel King Tests
As I posted earlier this week, I chose the Pixel King TTL Trigger and Receivers to replace my low end non TTL set. The reviews and capabilities sold me so now it's time to put them through their paces. Losing an hour to Daylight Savings Time and having several prior engagements my first test was a simple distance test. So I drove over to the nearby Home Depot parking lot, left a receiver with a flash locked in my car and walked to the opposite end and fired off a shot. The specs claim they can handle 100 meters. That's 109 yards to those of us in the U.S. I was shooting with a 70-200 zoomed in at 200mm so it might seem a little closer. But trust me, I walked the entire length and up a short rise. I would have tested it further, but I was stopped by a fence.
