The new Strato, with TTL pass-through, has displaced the RF-602 as my favorite flash trigger:

Nice video,very well explained with examples on how to use the features of the triggers. Would be nice to know about range and reliability. Also, does this have relay mode like the phottix atlas or the PW?

Hi Timmy,
Thanks for the kind words. As for range and reliability: I tested it to 70 meters with 100% reliability (it's rated to 100 meters, but I did not test quite that far). I found it's overall reliability to be 100% in my testing, never got a single misfire. Can't beat that. I'm not sure about relay, you may have to check with Phottix about that.
Best wishes,
Phil

Funny how you mention the interference by using radio channels, because 2.4 GHz is a way more saturated band than the 800-ish band (mostly used by walkie talkies).

Just throwing that out there, keep up the good work!

@Citruspers - You may be right about the 2.4 GHz band being crowded, but nonetheless, my experience so far with the 2.4 GHz triggers (Yongnuo and Strato) has been rock solid without a hint of interference. That's much more than I can say for the PocketWizards down in the 344 or 433 MHz range, where I seem to get a lot of interference (possibly from the flashes themselves.)
