Product Information
Description

PLEASE NOTE: This video is not full a representation of what is included in this listing as some items are used for demonstration purposes only. Please see the “Specifications” tab for information on what this listing includes.

The PIXAPRO PRO ST-III equivalent to Godox's X1 TTL is a 2.4GHz Radio flash trigger system capable of transmitting TTL information between your camera and compatible flashes. The PIXAPRO PRO ST-III trigger has a transmission range of approximately 100m in an open area, and since the transmitter and receivers use radio waves as opposed to Infra-red, you don’t need direct line of sight, and is not affected by bright Sunlight which can sometimes cause problems with optical slave systems.

As well as the traditional A:B C ratio style interface, the PIXAPRO PRO ST-III C also has a full GR Group style interface allowing up to 5 Groups to be individually set to either TTL, Manual, or Off. You also have the ability to mix TTL and Manual Groups if needed, which makes the PRO ST-III system very versatile. The ST-III system also has 32 separate channels, which enable you to use your ST-III trigger system in the vicinity of other photographers, without fear of accidentally triggering each other’s lights.

The PIXAPRO PRO ST-III supports TTL, HSS (High Speed Sync) and even has a HSS Pre-sync Timing Adjustment feature, which is great for those times where you need to increase your shutter-speed beyond your camera’s sync speed.

It also a Micro USB port to enable you to update the ST-III’s Firmware as new technologies become available.

The perfect solution for the busy photographer who require a reliable TTL radio trigger system.

PLEASE NOTE: ST-III Trigger is designed for use with the CITI600, Hybrid360 TTL, and PIKA200 TTL and STORM II 600 Flashes which have built-in ST-III receivers. Use with other flashes require a separate receiver.

PIXAPRO® PRO ST-III T 2.4GHz Flash Transmitter Only

This trigger is very responsive, and it doesn't over use the battery, I have used the same battery for 3 X 2hrs shoot and it's still going. I am doing another today with the same battery , well done pixapro

PIXAPRO® PRO ST-III T 2.4GHz Flash Transmitter Only

Got this to trigger the CITI600s. I have an Olympus and after finding it didn't work with the camera, straight out of the box, I contacted customer service who sent out another trigger with firmware update installed. Received it the following morning. Excellent service. Would highly recommend this company.

Does what it says on the tin!

Build quality is good works perfectly with my Pixapro pocket flash. Easy to tighten onto camera, I've found some others triggers are difficult to tighten or undo. Little pricey however I needed to work my flash so....
Would have liked it to come with info and maybe a branded box or something instead of plain packaging but I'm happy with it.

This combines the lighting package to work seamlessly

Exactly as i needed ! It lets me control 3 of the Pixapro Citi600 manual lights and adjust from the camera without having to go to the lights each time , perfect for location shoots where they might be in awkward areas !

Handy trigger for HSS

Handy trigger that allows HSS on my QT600IIM. Ability to control the light power setting from your camera than having to constantly walk over to your strobe. Would have like if the trigger had the ability to also change between the different modes on the strobe.

Care required when changing settings on your strobe. I accidentally disabled the wireless trigger on my strobe by mistake and then spent 10mins trying to figure out why the trigger stopped working for me. Swapping batteries and more before I found my error

Questions & Answers

Answer:

By default, the ST-III won’t trigger the flash if placed within very close proximity to your flash (normally within approximately 30cm or so). Since the RIKO400 ring flash is generally used on-camera, which is too close for the ST-III to trigger. You can, however, switch your ST-III to 0-30m mode, which will enable you to shoot at very close proximity.

To do this, please ensure that your ST-III trigger is updated to at least the following versions: (ST-III C - V15, ST-III N - V16, ST-III S - V13). Now Press and hold the "TEST" button whilst switching the ST-III trigger on, until "STATUS" light blinks for 2 seconds. 0-30m mode should now be active.

Answer:

The Newer ST-III LCD screens can display the following:

  1. On the newer screens can diaplay 1/256
  2. On the newer screens can display strobe and rear curtain synchronization icons.
  3. On the newer screens, channels below CH10 display 1-9, with no "0" in front

If you have one of the older screens, you will see the following:

  1. The 1/256 setting, is displayed as 1/128- on the screen
  2. Does "NOT" display strobe or Rear-Curtain Sync icons
  3. Channels, channels below CH10 show 01-09.

Note: The old and new screens have the same functionality on any firmware version. Updating the firmware does not replace the old screen display with the new screen display.

Answer:

This is because the Nikon flash system doesn’t allow the signal from the camera’s hot-shoe to be transmitted to the flash. Therefore, when using ST-III N, your Nikon Speedlite needs to be set to “TTL” mode to calculate the other modes and outputs etc.

The Canon flash system on the other hand, does allow the signal from the camera’s hot-shoe to be transmitted to the flash. Therefore, the ST-III C trigger can control the flash modes and outputs etc.

Answer:

To remotely switch on the modeling lamp with the ST-III trigger, simply Double-click the CH button, and so long as the channel is the same as the flash, it should turn on. Please be aware that you cannot control the power of the modeling lamp from the trigger.

Answer:

First, please ensure that your ST-III trigger is updated to at least the following versions: (ST-III C - V15, ST-III N - V16, ST-III S - V13). Now Press and hold the "TEST" button whilst switching the ST-III trigger on. simultaneously until "STATUS" light blinks for 2 seconds. 0-30m mode should now be active.

Answer:

You can if you have Firmware v15 or later installed on your trigger set (You can check by what version of the firmware you have by holding the button as you switch the ubit on).

To control the power of your Nikon flash, you need to set Nikon flash TTL mode, and then you can manually control the power from your ST-III trigger.

If you require the latest firmware update for your ST-III trigger system, you can download it from our Firmware Downloads page.

Answer:

The ST-III can be used to trigger other brands of flashes, however you will require an ST-III receiver to do so. Different flash manufacturers use different protocols in their triggering systems, meaning that the chances are that our triggers will not be cross compatible with the radio triggering systems from other manufacturers.

Whilst the ST-III will be able to trigger the flash if paired with an ST-III receiver, you may not be able to remotely control the power of third party flashes. Other feaures such as TTL or HSS may also not be possible with other brands of flash.

However, the ST-III trigger should work with GODOX and Flashpoint flashes with a built-in 2.4GHz receiver with no problem.

Answer:

The AF assist beam function can normally only be used with Nikon’s own flashes. To remedy this, we recommend using the AF lamp built-in to the camera. First turnoff the AF assist function on the ST-III transmitter (C.Fn-06 set it to 0)?then turn on the AF focusing function on your camera (please refer to your camera’s instruction manual for more information.

Answer:

Firstly please check that AF assist beam switch on the trigger is on (please see image below). If the AF assist beam switch is on, please check that your camera's shutter speed is at 1/200sec or slower, as the AF assist beam will only fire on when used with a slower shutter speeds (shutter speeds of 1/60 or less tend to work better).

Please be aware that the FUJI X system cameras is separated into three different categories, and AF assist beam can only be used with cameras in category A. Please see tables below if you're unsure.

Answer:

Your Fuji camera needs to be set to TTL flash mode ( please see the snippet from the manual below). Once your camera is set to TTL flash mode, then your trigger should work with no problems.

Answer:

The ST-III trigger cannot be powered using the USB port, this can only be powered by AA batteries.

Answer:

First, please ensure the Firmware for your ST-III trigger for Fuji is up to day (the current Firmware can be downloaded from our Firmware Download Page.

Once you have updated your ST-III to the latest firmware, enter the Custom Functions Menu (which can be accessed by pressing and holding the <CH/OK> button for two seconds), go toe C.Fn 11, and change the settings according the table below:

C.Fn No. Function Setting Description
C.Fn-11 Setting specific cameras and Flashes 00 General Fujifilm Cameras
01 The cameras that use between-the-lens-shutters (eg. X100F, X100T etc.) Choose this option and set all groups to M mode and reach high-speed sync within 1/1250s.
02 Choose this option and set all groups to M mode to solve the problem that the Li-ion580 II M cannot achieve High-speed sync, when flash is triggered by ST-III

Answer:

It would depend on the model of Fuji Camera that you are using, as only certain models currently have High-Speed Sync support with the ST-III trigger system (please see table below for more details).

Answer:

Unfortunately the ST-III can not automatically switch the Canon 580EX II to high speed sync mode. To use HSS, you will have to switch youe 580EX III to HSS mode manually first.

Answer:

Our flash triggers are not compatible with PocketWizard triggers unfortunately.

The Built-in flash trigger on the Sekonic Flash Meters, are also not compatible with our triggers, however you can still meter the flash by pressing the "TEST" button on the flash trigger. Most flash meters have a mode where it will wait a certain amount of time after the mesure button has been pressed for a flash to fire. Simply put your meter into this mode, press the "Measure" button on the meter, and then press the "Test" button on the trigger to fire the flash so you can get your exposure reading (Please refer to your flash meter's manual for more details).

Answer:

Please see image below which shows which switch configurations represent which channels on the ST-III Trigger system. Please Note: Your ST-III must be set to manual mode to work with PRO AC 2.4GHz receiver. Not compatible with older 433MHz Receivers.

Answer:

The 1/256th power setting isn’t available by default, you have to enable it in the Custom Functions menu (CFn). To enter the custom functions menu, press and hold the <CH> or <CH/OK> button (depending on which batch your trigger is from) for a few seconds and the custom functions menus should come up. Once in the Custom Functions menu, scroll to CFn. 5 and press the <GR> button, and the option will flash. Use the scroll wheel to select the 1/256 power setting, and then press the <GR> button again to set it. To go back to the main menu, press the <Menu> button.

  7. Once the Firmware has been updated successfully, then click the “disconnect” button in the G1 Software, and then disconnect your product from your computer.

Answer:

To restore your ST-III back to factory settings, press <CH> and hold the button whilst turning the Transmitter on.

Answer:

You have to set the Flash Exposure Compensation (FEC) from the transmitter itself, and not the flash, however the FEC will not be displayed on the speedlite itself.

Answer:

Please upgrade the firmware of your transmitter (ST-III C for Canon - V15 or later, ST-III N for Nikon - V16 or later, ST-III S for Sony - V13 or later). To activate the super close (30cm inside) trigger option, hold down the TEST button and switch on your ST-III trigger until the STATUS indicator flashes twice. After release, you can access this option from the wireless remote control 0-30 meters.

Answer:

It sounds like your camera may be set to Red-Eye Reduction mode. When in this mode, your speedlite will rapidly flash which is used to close the pupils of your subject to reduce or eliminate red-eye). Please ensure that the Red-Eye reduction is disabled in your camera settings

Answer:

The Auto-Zoom feature will only work when trigger is flash is set to auto (A) mode. The Auto zoom is disabled when use in manual (M) mode.

Answer:

There are many things that could possibly cause your flash to mis-fire. Here are a few possible reasons and solutions:

  1. Interference: - The signal from the ST-III trigger can be disrupted by any other devices that use a similar frequency (e.g. wireless base station, 2.4G Wi-Fi router, Bluetooth etc).

    The best solution would be to use a different channel using the CH button setting on the flash trigger. We recommend using a channel that is ±10, or more for a better chance of resolving the interference (e.g. If you are currently using Channel 1, try using Channel 11 or higher). and use the channel which is not disturbed.

    If you have the option to, try turning off any other devices that maybe using a 2.4GHz signal also.

  2.  

  3. Ensure that the flash has fully recycled: - If you are shooting in quick succession, and you find that you are getting mis-fires, there is a chance that you haven’t given the flash enough time to recycle or to catch up with the continuous shooting speed. Also check that your light hasn’t gone in to over-heat protection mode, or that there isn’t any other abnormal situation.

    To remedy this, try using your flash at a lower power setting. If the flash is in TTL mode, please try switching it to Manual mode, as a pre-flash is needed in TTL mode, which can slow the rate of fire slightly.

  4.  

  5. Your Flash Trigger is in very close proximity to the flash: - By default, the ST-III won’t trigger the flash if placed within very close proximity to your flash (normally within approximately 30cm or so).

    If you are required to shoot at very close proximity to your flash, you can switch your ST-III to 0-30m mode. To do this, please ensure that your ST-III trigger is updated to at least the following versions: (ST-III C - V15, ST-III N - V16, ST-III S - V13). Now Press and hold the "TEST" button whilst switching the ST-III trigger on. simultaneously until "STATUS" light blinks for 2 seconds. 0-30m mode should now be active.

  6.  

  7. Battery Levels: - If your batteries are running low, there is a chance that the batteries can’t provide enough power to send a signal. In this situation, please replace the battery (we recommended 1.5V disposable alkaline batteries).

A new ID feature has been added to later firmware revisions, to further reduce the chance of signal interference. Simply assign matching IDs to your Trigger and all of your flashes (Currently only available on battery flashes).

Answer:

To check which version of the Firmware Version you have installed on your ST-III trigger: Switch the power off, then press and hold the <MODE> button, and then switch the power back on whilst still holding the <MODE> button.

To check which version of the Firmware Version you have installed on your ST-III Receiver: Switch the power off, then press and hold the <GR> button, and then switch the power back on whilst still holding the <GR> button.

Your Current Firmware Version should then be displayed on the screen like as shown in the photograph below.

Answer:

The Hot Shoe on the trigger allows you to use a feature known as TTL Pass-Through, which enables you to use your ST-III trigger and a TTL speedlite on camera simultaneously. Perfect for times when you still need a speedlite on camera as a fill light etc.

Answer:

No, that doesn't work unfortunately. The master flash requires some kind of physical connection to the camera’s hot shoe in order for that to work. You can either sit the master flash directly on the camera’s hot shoe, or use an off-camera TTL flash cord.

The only way around it would be to use one of the following solutions:

  • Place a speedlite, set to master mode on top the ST-III trigger’s hot shoe, whilst the ST-III trigger is on camera.
  • Purchase another ST-III receiver for the other speedlite.
  • Purchase an Off Camera TTL cable for the Master flash to sit on.

Answer:

To use the Multi-Flash Setting with your ST-III Flash Triggers, please follow these steps:

  1. To Set-up multi-flash function on your ST-III trigger set, keep pressing the button until the TTL and M icons are not displayed on the LCD (As shown in the photo below). Once that has been done, press and hold the Button to enter multi flash setting submenu.

  2. Once in the Multi-Flash submenu, two lines displayed as T (for the amount of flashes) and H (for the flash frequency in Hz) should appear as shown in the photo below.

  3. Press the Button to make the “T” value blink. Once blinking, you are able to set the amount of flashes according to your needs by using the wheel.
  4. Press the Button again to change the “H” value.
  5. Once your Multi-Flash settings have been set, Press the Button to exit the Multi-Flash settings screen
  6. In the multi flash setting submenu, press the Button to return to main menu. Multi Flash Settings (Output Value)
    1. In the multi flash (TTL and M icon are not displayed), press the Button to set the current group.
    2. In multi flash mode, you will be unable to exceed 1/4 power as the flash units can’t do multi-flash with output settings higher than ¼ power.

Answer:

The ST-III triggers are cross compatible with the Pro AC 2.4GHz Receivers, and also the ST-I 2.4GHz receivers. However, they are not compatible with the ST-II transceivers, or the older 433MHz versions of the Pro AC or the ST-I receivers

Answer:

The ST-III triggers should work with no problems, though you would require a ST-III receiver for each of your Li-Ion TTL speedlites. You can also control the power of your Li-Ion TTL speedlites remotely.

Answer:

Whilst you can use the ST-III to trigger these lights, you can’t remotely control the power of those flashes. In order to do that, you will require the PiXAPRO PRO AC Trigger set

Answer:

To activate the rear curtain mode on the ST-III transmitter, press and hold the “CH” button for a few seconds to enter the Custom functions menu. Now select C.Fn-04, and then switch it to “ON”. Rear Curtain Sync normally only works at shutter speeds of 1/30s or slower.

For Nikon camera’s, the rear curtain sync is controlled by the camera itself. Please refer to your camera’s instruction manual for more information.
