RADIOPOPPER – Einstein & Photogenic Receivers – Now Available

RP_Einstein_300

 

US based Radiopopper have released receiver units for both Photogenic and Einstein E640 studio lights, providing stop accurate remote manual power control when used with the recently released JR2 transmitter units.

The JR2 system provides universal style remote manual power control (no TTL or HSS) of many TTL speedlites of various brands, as well as Paul C Buff Alien Bees and White Lightning studio lights.

The new RP Receiver units now expand that capability to Einstein E640 and Photogenic strobes as well.

 

Radiopopper JR2

 

Radiopopper Einstein Receiver

 

The RP Einstein Receiver allows remote triggering and remote power control of the Einstein E640 lights.

The receiver simply attaches to the port on the top of the E640 light, and power is provided directly from the strobe. Configuration is also through the display on the E640.

 

  • No batteries required
  • Stop accurate power control
  • Supports 4 groups/zones
  • Supports all 16 RadioPopper channels

 

A JR2 Transmitter is required to control power levels of the attached E640 light, though it may be triggered by any RadioPopper transmitter (Jr2, PX, JrX, Nano).

Radiopopper Photogenic Receiver

 

The RP Photogenic Receiver allows remote triggering and remote power control of most Photogenic brand lights.

The receiver attaches to the port on the bottom of the Photogenic lights, and is powered directly from the strobe. The Photogenic Receiver is configured using a digital display on the front of the receiver.

 

  • No batteries required
  • Stop accurate power control
  • Supports 4 groups/zones
  • Supports all 16 RadioPopper channels

 

The Photogenic Receiver works with all PowerLight and Solair series Photogenic lights except those lights with manual sliders at the rear.

A Jr2 Transmitter is required to control power levels of the attached Photogenic light, though it may be triggered by any Radiopopper transmitter (Jr2, PX, JrX, Nano).

RP Photogenic Receive

 

Combined with the recently released RP Sekonic light meter module, the Radiopopper JR2 is developing into a very nice system for those that only need remote manual power control (no TTL or HSS).

The JR2 transmitter has a very thoughtfully designed interface, allowing fast remote power changes, as well as features like a global adjustment to change all group power levels at once.

And the universal nature of the JR2 system means they can be used on most cameras having a standard hotshoe or PC sync port.

The new RP Receivers again provide hope Radiopopper may eventually complete the full system by providing an updated PX transmitter unit, hopefully combining a similar JR2 like interface.

A TTL flash could then be used on camera, while remote manual speedlites and studio strobes could be easily controlled off camera at the same time.

    Nice! I like how the units look. Stylish and functional.

    I wonder why other lighting manufacturers don’t design modules for the Einstein E640. With the popularity of that unit, it could help people buy into their system.

    Transmitters:
    $129.95 vs $179.95 w/built in flash meter.
    I haven’t personally used either but I think the Cyber Commander is better overall.

    Receivers: (x3 or more)
    $99.00 vs $29.95 or $89.95
    Doesn’t make sense to cost that much more than the CyberSync for Einsteins.

    If I ever make the plunge and buy monolights I think I’ll stick to Paul C Buff unless there’s some real advantage to a third party system that will end up costing more unless you have a mix of brands.

      Agreed! Pretty dumb to price a comparable item for over three time the price (Alien Bees $30 receiver vs Radiopopper $100).

    Does the cyber commander allow einstein to go into HS mode?

      No the Cyber Commander are universal single firing pin units, so they can not interpret the pre-sync signal from the cameras. As are the RadioPopper transmitters.

      You can use different triggers to fire the Einsteins though, and the Cyber Commander to remotely adjust them.
