Using Relay Mode

One of the most valuable features when using Remote Camera Triggering, Relay mode allows you to use strobes when triggering a remote camera.

Relay Mode works by using two channels.  One is a receiving channel, and the other is a transmitting channel to send the signal to the strobe radio when the remote camera is triggered.  The transmitting signal is on the Flash Control side (2.4GHz and 340-350MHz), so you have the option of selecting any single flash brand or you can combine two flash brands.
