QUESTION: MIGHT OR MIGHT NOT BE A DUMB QUESTION, BUT WILL THIS BE ABLE TO CONTROL TO ALTURA UNIVERSAL FLASHES AT ONCE?
TTL means through the lens... the flash that is built into the camera and some stand alone flashes talk to the camera body. When the flash goes off there are actually 2 flashes (you only see one) the first flash is a test flash during which the camera measures the amount of light bouncing back from the subject and then determine the amount of light the flash needs to generate on the second flash to properly expose the picture. Most flash triggers just trigger the flash ...you set the power of the flash yourself.. 1/2 power, 1/4. 1/8 etc. You determine the power by taking test shots. This is called shooting in manual mode. Now some flash triggers are capable of TTL but they must be matched to a flash that is also capable of TTL. Manual flash triggers are about $20-$35 while TTL flash triggers start at $150... so it would see m TTL is best... but you give up control... maybe you want to underexpose a little... or maybe not... it's up to you. Hope this helps..
Yes... It will control two flashes in manual mode... They are not capable of TTL
yes, the dip switches inside can be set for the Altura flashes that you currently have.
Yes but i always fire the test button from the top of the sender before i mount it on the camera to see if everything is screwed on securely. Sometimes the flash wont respond because it's not quite in position on the receiver. This way you're not walking back and fort from the camera to the flashes.

QUESTION: I HAVE A 7D WOULD THIS WORK FOR MY CAMERA?
yes it will
It should. I have a 70d and it works great on my camera. There is not too much of a difference between the two. Plus my dad has same flash for his rebel. Works great.
I have a 70D and it works great on my camera. The cable in the picture is pretty much standard for Canon flash.
Yes. I have a 7D Mark II and it worked for me.

QUESTION: HOW DOES THIS WORK WIRELESSLY EXACTLY? MY CANON REBEL T5 DOES NOT OFFER EXTERNAL FLASH SETTINGS ON THE MENU. DO I NEED TO DO ANY SETTINGS ON CAMERA?
if you were to buy a cheap non TTL flash unit and put in on your camera, when you pressed the shutter the flash would go off. This works the same way. You put the transmitter on the hot shoe and the receiver under the flash. When you press the shutter the transmitter will send a signal to the receiver and the flash will go off. The key then is to control the position of the flash and the power settings on the flash. I use a light meter that can record the flash output and then key the settings into my camera on manual. Another thing you can do is IF you know your flash's "guide number" is you can divide the guide number by the distance to the subject and the result should be roughly your f stop at ISO 100. Keep in mind that bouncing your flash or using difusers will change the result. I have a t5i. For this, I keep my camera on manual and use 100th of a second for shutter speed. My guide number is roughly 70 so at 10 feet i would try to use an f stop around 7 (f8 would be good to start)
you should read your camera's manual...it may tell you how t set up external flash.

QUESTION: I HAVE A T4I. WHAT WOULD I NEED TO CONNECT A 3RD FLASH, OR AN ADDITIONAL FLASH AND THE FLASH TRANSMITTER?
I would use another flash on a tripod but just get a light sensor that fits like a hot shoe on the bottom of your flash. The Flash is fired when the sensor senses another flash.. Very inexpensive and they work great...
One transmitter controls multiple receivers.

QUESTION: CAN I USE THE REMOTE BUTTON TO TAKE PICTURE WHILE TRIGGERING THE FLASH AT THE SAME TIME?
No. You'll need one transmitter/receiver pair to control the camera shutter wirelessly (or just the transmitter to control shutter while tethered to the camera) and a second pair on a separate channel to trigger the flash. If you try to use just one transmitter to control the shutter and trigger the flash, the flash will not be in sync with the shutter.
not sure if this answers the question but,,,, I use Cannon DSLR camera 5i I think... I just attached the unit to DSLR & light and just worked without any other arrangements...
yes thats how it works but save your money and buy nicer ones. mine broke after only a few uses.

QUESTION: YOUR PREVIOUS Q&A INDICATES THIS WILL NOT WORK WITH THE CANON REBEL T3, BUT YOUR PRODUCT DESCRIPTION SAYS IT WORKS WITH THE T3. PLEASE EXPLAIN.
I have a T3 and it works fine.
I am confused by your query. I only reviewed the product once. I purchased a flash kit with a remote. This was the only choice listed at the time.It worked with my 3ti.
#(2_Trigger

QUESTION: HELLO, I HAVE A CANON 7D WILL BE WORK? THANKS
I've checked my order. In the ad it states that it will work with the Canon 70D. I did not see the 7D listed. You may contact the seller and ask him your question. That's the best way to be sure.
Yes they will, however I would invest in a different brand, because they are not good. The second trigger receiver in a row broke, just stopped working in the middle of a photo shoot
i have cannon 5ti and works find with it. I assume any dslr camera should work but not 100% sure. it's fairly simple to attach and use it - i am not tech but able to just attach the trigger to the camera and just used it.
Definately, they work great too!

QUESTION: CAN YOU ADJUST THE FLASH POWER THROUGH YOUR CAMERA MENUS WHEN THE TRIGGER IS IN THE HOTSHOE? OR MUST YOU ADJUST THE FLASH POWER ON THE FLASH ITSELF?
It is possible to set the flash through the camera menu.
I think only from the camera but i see that there is an automatic setting at the flash unit so I guess the flash takes the camera´s values

QUESTION: WILL THIS WORK WITHOUT A FLASH ATTACHED TO IT?
Not sure what you are asking. No flash has to be attached to the trigger, it goes in the camera hot shoe. The flash "foot" goes into the receiver. You can use it without a flash to trigger the camera (model dependent).

I don't understand what you're asking. The point is to trigger a remote flash. If there is no flash attached, what exactly are you expecting it to do

QUESTION: I HAVE A CANON REBEL T3 AND A CANON SPEEDLITE 270 EX II, WILL IT WORK WITH THIS COMBO?
In the Q&A section of the listing a customer states that it does work with the Canon Rebel T3.
It should work with any flash .. I use it two different brand flashes and it works well.
I have a canon 70D and utilizing a Altura flash and it works well.

QUESTION: IT SAYS THIS WILL WORK FOR A T5, BUT WILL IT TRULY? I BOUGHT YOGNUO OFF CAMERA RECEIVERS AND MY CAMERA WOULDNT FIRE OFF CAM FLASH WITH THEM.
It works great with my T3I.
It works with my t3i, so I don't see why not.
I would assume it would I have them and use it for a t3i. I have no problems
I've only used the set with my 7D.
use on camera flash an it will fire off in slave mode. ha nice instruction sheet on how to use it. should work with a t5 and it's working on our t2i
Yeah I use it as a remote shutter, a mounted flash or a remote flash. It works great in all phases and is easy to use

QUESTION: CAN I USE THESE RECIEVER ON PANASONIC?
As long as your camera has a hot shoe you should have no issues with it!
No you cant this canon go to amazon type in wireless remote trigger for Panasonic your camera has to be DLSR too. not a point and shoot I see there 59and & 79 dollars but well worth it I love mine the best of luck to ya Jeff
#(2_Trigger_Review

QUESTION: WHY THE FLASH WON'T FIRE IN A WIRELESS MODE? IT DOES WHEN I PRESS THE TEST BUTTON ON THE TRANSMITTER, BUT DOES NOT WHEN I PRESS THE SHUTTER BUTTON.
make sure transmitter(on camera) is on hot shoe properly and switch is set to camera. The receiver should be set to flash. This kit will also go into sleep mode within a few minutes. Another fault could be the dip switches located in battery compartment. They must be the same to communicate
Also note that for the Canon t2i (& probably others), non-Canon flashes won't be triggered if in Live View.
#(2_Trigger_Pack)_Altura_Photo

QUESTION: WILL IT WORK WITH A CANON EOS 30 D?
I have the EOS 70D it works great with it as far as the EOS 30D I don't know it a great item to have I would try it you can always send back if it doesn't work.
Don't know, I have 70d
Yes, but the wire for the shutter release is for newer canon models
#(2_Trigger

QUESTION: DOES IT WORK FOR CANON 6D
Yes but it stops working after a few times of use so don't even waste your money
I don't see why it shouldn't. All canon cameras have the same Hot Shoe set-up. Just make sure you aren't in Live View mode because they didn't work for me in Live View mode. Hope that helps.
yes sir
Yes
Bought one for my 6D, and it does not work with the 6D unless there is a special cable or something. Does not work off the hot shoe. Checked all settings, and re-checked both camera and trigger settings. Still nothing.

QUESTION: WILL THIS PRODUCT WORK WITH A CANON 5D MARK III???
Yes and yes! I use the same gear :) it works like a charm!!!!
Yes it will. It works pretty good too.
The description doesn't list that model as a compatible model, but there is one from Goja that will fit your model. Hope this helps.
#(2_Trigger_Review

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FLASH MODE AND CAMERA MODE ON THE RECEIVER(S)?
It depends on what you want to control. Mount it to the camera and the transmitter will work like a shutter switch. Just a flash and that's all it will do. Allows you control camera and remote flash at the same time.
The switch must correspond with whatever you put the receiver on. If you don't have them set properly, they will not communicate with eachother. camera on camera mode/ flash on flash mode.
#(2_Trigger_Pack)_Altura_Photo

QUESTION: DOES THIS WORK FOR THE CANON 6D
Yes, if it has an on camera flash adapter(thing above the "canon" on your camera) then yes.
I would think it would as it works great on my Canon T1i, but check with the Altura web site for compatibility.
#(2_Trigger

QUESTION: IF YOU ATTACH A FLASH TO THE HOT SHOE OF THIS FLASH TRIGGER, 1. DOES IT FIRE CONSISTENTLY. 2. DOES THE FLASH (ON THE SHOE) STIL FUNCTION TTL?
Yes, the receiver for the two I have work very consistently. I can put two TTL flashes on the receivers, with one transmitter on my camera, and it automatically syncs to them. I have not figured out if it's possible to have one flash on the camera hotshoe and use it with another flash off the camera.
I did not buy a wireless flash trigger!
#Pack)_Altura_Photo

QUESTION: CAN I USE THIS TRIGGER JUST AS A WIRELESS CAMERA TRIGGER MINUS A FLASH?
Yes, I've used it several times without the flash. It just depends what setting you have the camera on.
Yes you can it works both ways
Yes, you can.
#(2_Trigger_Review

QUESTION: WILL THE RECEIVER WORK ON A CANON 6D, OR DO I NEED A SEPARATE CORD (LIKE 2.5MM TO RS-C3)? ONE REVIEWER MENTIONED THAT S/HE HAD TO BUY A SEPARATE CORD.
don't know as we do not use this on a Canon 6D
Hmmm i bought the set with the flash to use with my t5 and it came with the correct cord so I didn't need anything else, however the description for the two trigger pack doesn't mention including the cord, so it may be something to ask the seller?
#(2_Trigger_Pack)_Altura_Photo

QUESTION: I UPGRADED FROM A CANON XSI TO A CANON 6D. IS THERE ANOTHER CORD FOR THIS REMOTE THAT WOULD MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO USE ON MY NEW 6D?
It work on my t5 I don't know if it works on your 6d
Sorry hope you find it
#(2_Trigger

QUESTION: ALTURA PHOTO WIRELESS FLASH TRIGGER WITH REMOTE SHUTTER FOR CANON CLAIMS TO WORK FOR REBEL T5, DOES IT REALLY WORK? ANYONE WITH A T5?
It works, I use it as remote control with a T5
Did you get it to work? I just got my triggers and I can't get them to sync properly with my T5.
Yes, it works with my T5 as either a flash trigger or a camera trigger, there are instructions included to use it both ways. But this will NOT do TTL.
#Pack)_Altura_Photo

QUESTION: WILL THIS WORK WITH CANON 50D OR IS THERE SOMETHING COMPATIBLE?
Yes its compatible
I don't know for certain, but I would assume that the Canon flash shoe is standard throughout their DSLR product line.
#(2_Trigger_Review

QUESTION: WILL THIS WORK WITH CANON 600 RT FLASH?
It will. It is not ttl tho. You will need test fire to get everything set up the way you want. I love these triggers. I taped mine up to increase the durability for shooting mountain biking. They are built very well though.
Yes it should. But its max speed is 1/200 sec. Meaning, it is not high speed sync.
I think it should work ok. I use mine with Canon 5D mark 2 and it works.
#(2_Trigger_Pack)_Altura_Photo

QUESTION: WILL IT WORK WITH CANON EOS REBEL XS/1000D AND 2 CANON SPEEDLITE 430EX II?
Yes will work.
Yes. I use it with Canon 60d and Nikon d3200
#(2_Trigger

QUESTION: WILL THIS WORK WITH A CANON T5 (NOT THE T5I) JUST TO RELEASE THE SHUTTER REMOTELY? I DONT NEED A FLASH, JUST A RECEIVER THAT WILL COMMUNICATE TO THE C
Yes I have a t5 and it works quite well
Yes it will; that is the point behind this unit. It will both fire an off-camera flash, as well as remotely fire your shutter (just not both at the same time).
No. For that you need a remote shutter release.

QUESTION: DOES THIS WORK WITH THE CANON 40D?
Works with my t5i so it should work
Sorry, I don't own a trigger pack.
