    I'm trying to find some DECENT remote flash triggers for the GH4 but it's not easy.

    Does anybody know of any good flash triggers/transmitters that are GH4 compatible? With good range and reliability?

    I'm using Nissin and Metz flashes.

    I recommend and use Radio Popper brand triggers. Not cheap, but not pocket wizard prices either.

    I like the JrX STUDIO versions as they allow you to remotely control the power from the transmitter to flash units that have TTL and control teh TTL from a quench pin. All my old Nikon SB flashes work with that setup.

    I've never actually used those, but some people really like them or the Phottix brand that are of a similar price.

    Hi

    I use these for all my remote flash needs, they work faultlessly not only with the camera mounted battery flashguns but also with my studio heads via the supplied lead.

    They claim 30 meters for range and from my own tests I don't doubt that claim, I even have a spare trigger attached to my old Minolta Flash Meter thus converting that to a wireless unit as well.

    For what they cost, especially in some of the multi flash sets sold they are excellent value and well worth a try.
