Photo Checkout now has available a set of Cybersyncs for the AlienBees. This permits you to wirelessly discharge the Alienbees, free of the relentless tether of sync cords! Checkout has one CST transmitter, which connects to the camera, and one CSRB, which connects to one AlienBee light. Both units will have to be checked out to be of any use. The CST can sit in your camera's flash shoe, and connects by a short cord to the camera's PC socket, so you might need to do some creative peripheral management if your camera lacks a PC socket, and you try to use a hot shoe adapter and CST at the same time. The CSRB is powered by 2 AA batteries, which are currently in the unit, but it may be advisable to have a spare set of batteries on hand, since the operational life of the batteries is as yet undetermined.

The Cybersyncs are available at checkout now, so feel free to make use of them!

We might need some Velcro on the top of the hotshoes and on the bottom of the Cybersync.

The cybersyncs will work with most any lights. They come with 3 different connector cables.
