Pixel Pawn doesn't trigger Yongnuo flash

Unread postby mvanrheenen » Sat Apr 27, 2013 1:17 pm

Hi guys,

I want to get into off camera lighting and bought a Yongnuo YN460-II flash and Pixel Pawn trigger and receiver for Sony. Alas, I don't get the flash to trigger with the Pixel Pawn set.

I checked the channel settings and tried them all. Checked and tried all flash settings on my camera and on the Pixel set, but still a no go.

Do I miss something or are these devices just not compatible?

Mark

So, I tried about everything I could think of and were handed to me on another community: still no luck.

I think the flash and trigger just aren't compatible. I do like the flash though. It's a cheap manual flash, which can be triggered in WL mode and has a sync speed of 1/250 on my a580. The build is good for the price you pay: you can buy 4 (!) of these for 1 HVL-43AM!

If anyone has any other things for me to check, please let me know.

Mark

I got an e-mail from Pixel with a pretty straightforward answer:

Dear Mark,

Thank you for your e-mail!

Our Pawn can’t support YONGNUO’ flashgun.

We don’t have software to solve this issue.

Thanks and best regards!

Pixel Enterprise Limited.
