Worst product page ever...

Since I've been griping about the lack of a hot shoe on my camera, and I've been pretty happy with the little Canon optical slave flash I picked up, I decided to look into other lighting options that would work for me.

Cue Wein Products.

If you dig through their pages, you'll eventually find the "Safe Sync" product page, touting their sync adapters for high-voltage professional photo lighting.

Half-way down the page, though, is the "Digital Smart Slave" product line. It's got pretty much nothing to do with the "Safe Sync" products, as far as I can tell.

It seems, from what I've been able to gather, to be the best optical slave trigger module on the market. It definitely opens up some new lighting opportunities.

I've read about too many issues with the Wein peanut optical slave, that I would hesitate to get one.

Well, I've heard that:

1. Some Canon flash units lock up when triggered with a non-Canon (and particularly a Wein) trigger.
2. Some older digital cameras do a double-preflash that screws up the sync on the Wein Digital series slaves; they can deal with one pre-flash or no pre-flash, but that's it.

If I got one, I'd probably get the hot-shoe slave rather than the PC-cord peanut.

That is one hell of an ugly set of pages.

And email them to find out how/where to buy??? Gheez.

There are links for Omega-Satter at the top of the page.
