Hello all,
not too long ago this following gadget was brought up in a thread here at GG-

====Paterson InterFit IRX - InfraRed Transmitter====

My studio setup consists of a couple of Photogenic monolights, my main light being the Powerlight 2500 DR. I also shoot Nikon, now mainly with the D70 and I have been looking into going wireless within my humble studio. A wireless studio is something I have NO experience with.

So, will the above IR transmiter work with my Photogenic monolight? Is there a pro out there currently using a similar setup that can provide some tips in the matter?

Regards,
Rick

I wouldn't consider myself a pro but it does pay for my "habit." I recently bought a PocketWizard kit. Wow, what a difference wireless makes. I have the other light wired with flash detectors, so I'm not 100% wireless, but it has completely freed my shooting in the studio. I have a Sekonic wireless meter (that's where it all started), so I can meter often without interferring.

If you can swing it, or even if you can't, go wireless. You'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

On a similar note: I talked to a guy who works for a studio in the Quad cities. The owner built his own wireless setup from old garage door openers. I'm working on getting the plans for these and will post them once I do.

Happy Holidays

Mark,
thank you for taking the time to reply.

I've heard awesome things about the PocketWizard kit but they're quite pricey and right now I just cannot justify that expense. I believe I'm going to give the Paterson IR Transmitter a shot, it's about $40.00.

Once again, thank you.
Happy Holidays to you and yours.

Regards,
Rick

Rick, that Paterson IR trigger sucks. I know 2 people who have them and they never work. I spent several hours trying to get it to fire on 5 different Nikon cameras on day. The other guy who has one has a selection on Canon cameras and he has the same problems with it never triggering.

There is a snyc cord you can get from Paramount, it's a old Canon type blade and pin cord that will plug into it. That might solve the problem of triggering but I don't know as neither of them has any interest in messing with that thing any more. If you want an IR trigger get the Wein IR trigger and sensor, it's a much better peice of equipment that actually works.
