Next, They'll be Using Nitro

Not ones to settle for limited performance from the much-talked-about cheapo eBay flash remotes, some Strobist readers are souping them up.

Check out this Flickr Strobist thread for a how-to on swapping power sources (AAA's good, exotic batts bad) and swapping the antenna for a reported extended range of 200 feet.


One thing to consider: You could be breaking the law by adding a six-inch piece of wire to the cheap remote transmitters. While technically you would only be breaking the law for 1/250th of a second per shot, keep an eye out for the black helicopters.

(I'm just saying.)
