It may not be an easy task for photographers to trigger a remote flash unit at the same time when he presses the camera button. Some photographers may need an assistant to take care of the flash unit and listens to the hand signal of the photographers to trigger the flash in time.
But now with this wireless radio-based flash trigger control, you can easily take your best shots single-handedly. The wireless Flash trigger consists of a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter is to hook into the camera?s hotshoe while the receiver is to be attached to the hotshoe base of battery-powered flash unit.

Of course, this is still firming in the rumor bin at the moment, but we’ll have to sit back and see how this works out. Stay tuned!
