Just got my new YN-460 II flash. 2 more are on the way. I need to buy some flash triggers.

Ive heard some people saying the PT-04's which are very cheap work well. Some say the Yongnuo RF-602s are good. And then cactus. Some say cactus V2 has a problem. Id like to hear from members as to which ones you use. Im leaning towards the PT-04 due to their being the cheapest option. Then the RF-602 and then the cactus respectively.

Also id like to know if i can shoot at above the cams sync speed with these triggers (that is if i dont mind the black bars) and my YN-460 IIs.

Plus id like to check if i run the risk of the cam flash popping open during certain modes and hitting the mounted transmitter or does the cam recognize these triggers are mounted and doesnt open the popup flash.

My cam bodies are the 550d and 500d. Plz let me know.

I would the that the pop-up flash should not deploy on its own unless one is using full-auto mode, no?

Canon 5Ds R/7D2/7D/5D/40D/1D2N/M3; Nikon F6/D3s/D700/FM3A/1Dx/Coolpix A. Lens selection undergoing changes; some favorites: Zeiss 2/135 APO Sonnar, Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS and 135L, Nikkor 14-24/2.8G and 24-70/2.8G.
