To k10 studio shooters....

Hi guys, ive been practicing using studio flashes lately with a s3pro at tech and have kinda got the gist of how to set up the rig and metering the light with a sync cord. My problem is i want to use my k10 instead of the schools camera but theres no sync socket to connect to the light meter. So ive been in the market for a wireless solution and found this locally...

Will this trigger work or is there something to look out for in relation to the k10?

This one has something about a test button built in for metering but id thought i'd ask here as theres alot of experiance around.

Yes, I suspect it will work just fine. High voltages (a concern with studio flash systems) are rarely a concern with wireless/radio slaves (unless the transmitter itself is too high - extremely rare). You may have to replace or rewire the connector on the receiver so it will connect to your particular flash unit (so it will plug in and fire correctly).

By the way, if you decide to go with a wired solution instead, simply make sure to get a device for the hotshoe with some form of voltage limiting circuit (6v max). Otherwise, the same issues apply (compatible connectors, etc).
