Item #0129 Optical Slave — In Hotshoe Mount

Optical Slave — In Hotshoe Mount
enlarge Item #0129

This optical slave is packaged in a convenient hotshoe.

This device will immediately fire a connected flash unit when another flash burst is detected.  This allows a remote flash to be fired without any connecting wires.

It requires no batteries or other power; it runs off the flash unit to which it is connected.


The triggering flash must not emit a pre-flash as this will prematurely fire the connected flash.

This optical slave will work with many hotshoe based flash units (see very partial listing below).

Nikon SB-28
Sunpak 383
Sunpak 433D
