With the CyberSync™ system, the CST Trigger Transmitter serves as the transmitter at the camera position. You will need at least one receiver for your setup
or you can use one receiver for each light in the setup
. With one receiver attached to one light in your setup, any remaining lights will take their cue to fire from their built-in slave trippers. If you will be working in an environment where other photographers and flashes can inadvertently trip your lights, you can use one receiver for each light in the setup. You may also need to use one receiver for each light when working outdoors.
The CST Trigger Transmitter can be used with all CyberSync™ receivers: the CSR and CSRB
, the CSR+ and CSRB+
and the CSXCV
transceiver (on Einstein™ units). The CST, however, is only designed for triggering and only sends a firing cue to any receiver in the setup.
Note: When used with the CSR+, CSRB+ and CSXCV receivers, no adjustments can be made with the CST. The CST is strictly designed for triggering. Some customers choose to purchase these receivers for use with the CST in order to future-fit their setup should they opt to purchase the Cyber Commander™ at a later date.
The CST Trigger Transmitter may be used in conjunction with the Cyber Commander™
. Many photographers wish to use both as this setup allows you to hand hold the Cyber Commander™ for adjustments and easy flashmeter readings while the CST can remain in your camera’s hot shoe for triggering. If the CSR+ or CSRB+
receivers are connected to your lights, all grouping and other functions established by your Cyber Commander™ will be honored when the system is fired from the CST. Please note that the CST will only send a signal to fire and does not adjust flashpower.
CyberSync™ will not fire from Sekonic Meters with the Pocket Wizard Module. These meters can only be fired to or from a Pocket Wizard as the frequencies and coding are proprietary to Pocket Wizard.
The CST base fits standard ISO hot shoes. This is the common hot shoe found on most cameras except for Sony/Mintola DSLR cameras. With Sony/Minolta cameras, you will need to use an adapter – these can be found at FlashZebra!
. For cameras that cannot establish contact through the use of a hot shoe, the provided SC-CST cord can be used to hardwire connect the unit to your camera’s PC outlet.
