[SOLD] FlashWaves Wireless Receivers (3) and transmitters(2) + (US/UK/CAN/AUS) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FlashWaves Wireless Receivers (3) and transmitters(2) + Pentax 5P (1x9') off camera flash cable

Asking Price
$185 CAD incl shipping WW

These cost me $159 per pair (R/T) and an additional $99 for the 3rd receiver. ($417.00) plus the prices of the 5P Pentax cable.

Item Location
Charlottetown PEI Canada

Item Description
FlashWaves wireless triggers.
I have 3 receivers and 2 transmitters plus the related cables , owners manual and bits that came with the original kits.

I added the extra transmitter to modify it for longer range as this is easy to do. I never got around to it because they suited my work just fine but if you want to modify one of them, I can show you how to do it. Takes about 5 minutes to make the mod.

I've changed to a PW system because of sync speed. I used these for some time on a pair of K20D's without any issues. Pentax's sync speed is lower and now That I'm mostly Nikon, these don't sync to Nikon's flash max sync speed. These Flashwaves have a max sync of 1/200th

There is an extensive discussion about these here: Flashwaves

I'll add some of my own photos of the kit tomorrow. I'm also going to toss in 2 mini tripods that can be used with these as flash stands in tight spots.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

If you're willing to break up, could you tell me how much for one receiver and one transmitter?

Sorry at this point I don't want to break up the set. Now that could change in a week or so
