The LightPix Labs FlashQ Trigger is a small, affordable and adorable flash trigger.
It is definitely the right trigger for a lot of people.
The FlashQ is a flash trigger, as the name implies, and it is simply that.
No TTL, no channel selection, no special features. This is pretty plain as it gets when it comes to triggers, and it is definitely refreshing that it comes in such a tiny form factor, at the fraction of the cost of the alternatives such as a PocketWizard system.
I bought the FlashQ Kit F+ in midnight black which includes one transmitter and two receivers; it cost me $63 shipped. Shipping took exactly one week coming from Hong Kong, going to Los Angeles, California, and it comes in a bubblewrap-lined mailer containing this cardboard box which is quiet convenient. I'll be keeping this box for transportation so they don't get too banged up in one of my bags (but if I'm being honest with myself I'll probably just toss them into wherever is most convenient).
The design is simple, two buttons on the transmitter, two buttons on each receiver. The button with one dot is the power, which you hold for 3 seconds to turn on and off. The button with the sun is the test button to make sure the triggers are paired.
Each has an LED strip somewhere on its body to indicate whether or not you've turned the device on and to check if the devices are interacting with each other.
They also come with a PC sync to microUSB cord to plug into your flashes if necessary. I would recommend using the sync cords as the receivers are all plastic which leads me to believe they cannot handle a ton of stress. I'd much rather mount the flashes using a hotshoe bracket because typically they are stronger, and have a tightening gear where the FlashQ receivers do not.
Overall this is exactly what I'm looking for in a flash trigger right now; no TTL, no fancy features, just a trigger so that my flashes will fire without them needing to be set to optical slave. With my light-testing, I have yet to experience any misfires or duds, and as I test it more as well as work with it I will be able to create a more comprehensive review on these. However as of now, they definitely seem worth the cost.
