The Triopo TR-981 Flashes Feature TTL and High Speed Sync Firing


According to Lighting Rumours, a new flash has come out to challenge that of the Yongnuo line. Triopo recently announced the TR-981N and TR-981C for Nikon and Canon. The units have i-TTL or E-TTL control, manual adjustment and built-in optical slave cells. Beyond that though, they also sport HSS: which is awesome when you want to get a monolight look or overpower the sun. But that still means that Yongnuo has the advantage with their built in radio system.

The TR-981 features an LCD control panel on the back which is used to adjust settings: much like many other modern day flashes. It also has a PC sync port and a high voltage external power socket. According the manufacturer, the recycle time at full power is 2.9 seconds on new AAs, or 4–5 seconds with older batteries.

Right now, the Triopo TR-981C and TR-981N currently are available for purchase at $153 on eBay. The Triopo flashes are $20 cheaper than the YN-568EX–their main competition.
