Pros: They work great on Canon E-TTL camera with a 3.5 shutter release jack.
Cons: They won't work with Pentax P-TTL flash system.
Other Thoughts: They should fire the shutter on the above Pentax models, but the P-TTL won't work, because these are for Canon Cameras. I didn't buy from Newegg.com. I would mount them on the Pentax camera hot shoe, it may short the electronics.

delivered but not functional
Pros: came in a nice box.
Cons: did not work. Failed to trigger.Would not connect to each other. No signal.
Other Thoughts: This is the second time I have attempted to aquire these triggers. The first time the vendor (not the same as here nor the same web site) failed to send the device. This time the vendor supplied the device within the time limits. But they did not work, failed to connect.
