Re: Is it worth spending more?

The problem with the cheap cactus triggers is misfires, no CLS and no High Speed Sync. If you do decide to get some, at least get the v4s. They are improved over the v2s in terms of misfires

You can still have CLS if you're you spend silly money on Radio Poppers.

I've got a set of cactus v2s and tbh for the amount I use em the misfire isn't an issue. It's annoying but I'm not in a time critical environment & can take my time setting up and re-shooting.

My radio triggers came from e-bay and cost less than 15. Not perfect, but good enough for me.
