Interfit has announced some new accessories in its Strobies range, including some wireless shutter releases, a universal TTL cord, and a radio/optical flash trigger which savvy strobists will find eerily familiar.

Interfit, one of the leading manufacturers of photographic lighting is pleased to announce the arrival of the i SYNC 4 optical and wireless triggers for studio and speedlites flashguns to its Strobies brand.

The I Sync 4 has 4 independent radio channels for use where multiple photographers may be using wireless triggers such as at a wedding etc. Now you can set the channel and still keep on shooting without interference from other photographers.

A major benefit of the receivers is the ability to switch between optical triggering or wireless triggering.

  • Optical triggering is similar to your in built sync cell on your studio flash heads and can allow a greater distance to be used when using Infrared triggers such as the Interfit INT411 or receiving white light from a second head. Ideal for extending the range where the flash may not be received by your in built sync cells.
  • Wireless triggering when used with the radio trigger on your camera allows out of sight flash triggering or around walls and most obstacles up to a maximum distance of 30 mtrs (100 feet).

Each receiver has a built in light stand tread on the bottom to allow your speedlite to be stand mounted. In addition a PC sync cable and socket is included along with a mono jack converter to fit both large and small jack sync sockets for connecting to studio lighting. Runs on long life lithium batteries (included).
Available as a complete kit with a receiver and trigger (STR130) or as a receiver only (STR129) with immediate effect from Interfit Main Dealers starting at £49.99 Inc vat for the twin kit STR130, and £28.99 Inc vat for the receiver only STR129.

Further information will be available on the Interfit Website shortly.

If you think these look the same as the new Interfit Strobies i SYNC 4, that’s because they probably are. However, while these new triggers also look similar to the CTR-301P by Yongnuo, this is mainly cosmetic (see below).

UPDATE: Phottix make their own products in their own factory in Shenzhen, China. Click here for more information.
