The Magic Of Pocket Wizards and Other Triggers

Using Radio Transmitters
Pocket Wizards can be used in a few different ways- as a remote, with speedlights, and for firing strobes. They’ve worked much more effectively for me than infrared remotes or cheaper versions and can send signals from up to half a mile away. Not to mention you usually only need 2 of them since strobes will optically slave, meaning you can use as many lights as you want.
