Wireless flash triggers are one of the essential items for aspiring studio photographers, but are also a notoriously expensive piece of equipment. While demand for reasonably priced wireless flash triggers grows on auction and reselling sites like eBay, sellers on DHgate.com (a leading China wholesale trading platform) are set to become a major world supply point for the popular photography tools.
Online PR News – 20-July-2010 – – Beijing, China – Steadily growing global demand for wireless flash triggers, an essential professional studio photography accessory, will increasingly be met on DHgate.com, a major B2B China wholesale platform, according to market indications.
eBay-based sales of wireless flash triggers have been steadily growing since 2005. In the past 60 days eBay sellers have made a cumulative US$129,000 on sales of wireless flash triggers, from just over 4,600 items sold.
"Most of the eBay sellers meeting this skyrocketing worldwide demand for wholesale wireless flash triggers are based in China", commented James He of DHgate.com.
Mr. He believes that the future of wireless flash triggers lies in broadening supply to a global base, which is sourced from the reasonably priced and high quality items produced in China. "We can see that China has adequate production capacity and quality wireless flash trigger items. However, local re-sellers offer some unique advantages like delivery speed, accessibility and after-sales support to the end customers", Mr He said.
Wireless flash trigger items available from China wholesale sellers on DHgate.com include:
• Flash triggers designed for compatibility with Sony, Canon, Nikon, Minolta and other major brands
• Triggers with up to 30m effective range
• Items priced as low as US$18
Wireless flash triggers are essential for studio photographers. On-camera flashes come from an awkward angle and allow photographers little control. Wireless flash triggers allow control of both the direction and intensity of the flash. Some can be linked to an on-camera flash in a master/slave system.
