Hi Everyone,

I'm looking to get some remote radio triggers for outdoor flash work. The CLS system just doesn't work to well in the environments I shoot in (mountain biking, skiing, adventure racing, etc). I'm going to be using 3 SB-600 units (cost factor) and was looking at the AlienBees as triggers.

Does anyone have any experience with them? I know I have to buy a separate hotshoe adapter for each flash, but it's much cheaper than 3 SB-900's!!

Also trying to understand the diff between CSRB and CSRB+ triggers. I only plan to use the flashes on manual mode so I think I only need the CSRB.

Any suggestions??


Thanks so much for any advise at all!


Chris
