Pixel Knight TR-332 Trigger Set: Tutorial for Canon 5D Mark II

 

The Pixel Knight Trigger Set is an advanced high performance wireless flash trigger. Simply attach the transmitter to your camera hot shoe and the receiver to your flash, and you have a wireless light setup. Changes made on the camera are transmitted to the off-camera flash by a half-press of the shutter.

Pixel Knight Trigger supports Canon EOS E-TTL / E-TTL II flash modes, meaning you can fire your Canon flash wirelessly in E-TTL automatic output control. Canon 580EX II users can adjust the output power of the flash from the transmitter. Power can be adjusted by a total of 23 levels from full power to 1/128

This product supports a maximum range of 65 meters and shutter speeds of up to 1/8000, depending on sync speed limitation of the camera model.

How to Use the Knight Pixel Set with a Canon 5D Mark II:

Transmitter
1. Mount the Transmitter to the camera hot shoe
2. Turn on the Camera
3. Press Power to turn on the Transmitter
4. Hold down Set
5. Press Set until 5D appears
6. Press Power
7. Press Set to select On
8. Wait four seconds to exit Setup Muenu

Receiver:
1. Press Power to turn on the Receiver
2. Mount the Receiver to your Speedlite
3. Turn on the Speedlite
4. Leave the Receivers set on Channel 1 and Group A.

I recommend setting the Speedlite Zoom to Manual, because then the zoom stays as set. Manual zoom can be changed on the Speedlite while still on the Receiver.

Modeling Light:
The modeling light can be used by pressing the Depth of-Field/Modeling light button on the camera.

Flash Exposure Compensation:
Use the camera’s Flash Exposure Compensation (FEC) to adjust the Flash exposure. The Speedlite FEC setting must be set at Zero.

I love being a photographer, and most of all I love being inspired and fulfilled. My passion for photography started when I was 11, and at 16, when I won the Best Photographer Award at The Royal Show and was a finalist in the black & white photography competition in Camera & Image magazine, I was inspired to pursue a career in photography. I completed my degree in Photography cum laude in 2003, and have been working as a commercial photographer for the past 7 years for local and international clients. Recently I won a Silver & Bronze award at the Sony Profoto Awards, and was a semi-finalist in the African Photographic Awards. I love food & lifestyle photography - everything from choosing the props, to styling, lighting, and then taking the shot. I also love discovering new places and documenting my travels by shooting from the hip. When I'm not looking through my viewfinder, I am most likely browsing antique stores, vintage prop shopping, cooking up a storm, or designing wall paper.
