I’m an experienced pro who is looking to put together the equipment to do real estate photography. I plan on picking up the Sony A6000 and for lighting plan on using a few LumoPro LP180R flashes with a built-in radio receiver, along with couple of CowboyStudio Dual Power AC/DC 110v Mettle 600W flash heads that has a variety of sync options. I’ve looked at the information on this site regarding radio triggers, however, I wondering if anyone has any updated info about which one would the best one to use with this system?
The LumoPro LP180R specs say:
LP180R may be wirelessly triggered off-camera via the built-in OdinTM receiver. The LP180R will automatically be triggered by OdinTM or StratoTM II Multi transmitters when the LP180R is in Rx-C, Rx-N or STRATO II wireless modes and set to the appropriate channel and group. The internal receiver also enables remote power and zoom adjustments and off-camera Canon and Nikon TTL compatibility in the LP180R when using a Phottix® Odin™ transmitter.
And the CowboyStudio Mettle 600 flash head specs say:
Flashes can be triggered via Optical Sensor, Sync cord, and Test button.
I suggest that you trigger the LP180R’s with either OdinTM or StratoTM II Multi transmitters and in turn, trigger the Mettle’s optically.
Does anyone have any more suggestions for Scott?
