RF-602 Review and Demo.
Male Speaker: Okay I am going to be doing a little product review on the RF-602. This little baby. It's a wireless flash trigger for your DSLR and your flash. Now what's also cool about this is that you can also use as a shutter like a wireless cable release function for your camera, which is you get like a two-in-one type of thing and it's the price is pretty affordable, especially when you compare to pocket wizards.
Pocket wizards are I think they are probably a little bit more reliable, but these are so much more cheaper and also you get that wireless cable release function that I just said, so it's a pretty good deal. However, I had to return this. I used a few times on my studio light and my other flash. And those two lights you can't see them, but they are over there. I think they might have mess it up because there the voltage is higher than five volts on those two lights. But this flash that I have and this is the only one that I uses on now. It's -- it hasn't broken. The last time this got broke because I think those prior to this piece.
So you know, it might be something you might want it check into. If your camera is less than five volts or it's that five volts then I think it's fun. So let's go over how this thing works. It's pretty simple. You plug the receiver into the flash and then you plug the transmitter into your DSLR camera and then you check your picture. Kind of make sure it's on. And you got to wait for the flash to charge of course and then it's wireless. So that's cool.
Looking at the units, there is four channel switches on the top. There is an on, off switch and LED light indicator, hot shoe thing to put your flash in. There is a tripod mouth and there is batteries in the back, it takes two triple A batteries. There is also like a -- this isn't really I don't think this has a specific name as like the tidal of the cable it goes in that port, but it has an input for this cable. It comes up with two cables and I'll go over those in a minute. But first let's go over the transmitter. This is what goes on your camera. On the front, it has a cable sync cord, port thing. I don't know the name of it, so sorry.
Check your instruction manual. I have it right there I am too lazy to look at it. And also comes with a LED light indicator and a button on the top, which is really nice. And the battery door back here is really flimsy and cheap, it's -- it could easily break off if you are not careful and it comes with a really unusual CR2 battery. So those batteries are kind of like special I don't know, they are not that common.
So yeah the cables, it comes with two cables. One of them, this one is you are allowed to plug the receiver into this cable here, yeah it's plugged in. There you go. All right, and then you would plug this and then to your studio light and it comes with an adapter all in the box just in case you don't have. Just in case the studio light takes the big kind of a little time.
So that's that and now I want to work with second Nova flash and then the other thing, the other cable, that it comes with, it's a wireless cable release pretty much. What do you do you just plugged it in here just like the last one. And then for convenience I like to put it on the hot shoe. There is no contacts on the bottom, so nothing is going to happen, but I just put it there for convenience, and then you plug this into your camera. Now this camera is a Nikon D50, so it does not have a little slot for this to plug into. But the Nikon D300S and I am recording with this does and this is, that's when I use it. So I am using that camera.
So yeah, you would plug this in here, and once that was plugged in theoretically if it was, you would take this -- the transmitter and you would push the button and then it would focus for you and then take the picture. So that's what that does, I mean, that's really nice.
So that's what the RF-602 does, what it is and how it is? Like I said these are, they are made in China, so they are pretty cheap. They are lot more -- they're a lot cheaper than the Pocket Wizards, but like I said in the Pocket Wizards might be more reliable because I had to return these. I had to return my first one, the first one that I got, I had to return like after a day or two.
So and I am not sure if it was because of the high voltage, it could have been because it was bad piece that I got, but I have let it. So but just to be safe I would use that with flashes under five volts. So that's see our F-602, check the link down in the description because if you click that you'll be able to see the price, because I forget the price. So I am going to have to link that down there when you are done and that's it. Make sure to comment, rate and subscribe this video. Thank you.
