    Which wireless trigger for D750 + SB-910?

    I did some looking around and reading before posting this, but I've gotten too confused about all the options for something simple: For the camera and flash mentioned, which wireless trigger setup should I get? I read a lot of good about Cactus and PocketWizard but the latter seems pretty pricey. I don't want to spend a fortune because off-camera flash is not something I use very often. I might in the future, but not a lot now.

    There are several variations of "trigger"... they're usually delineated by price. The more they do, the more they cost.

    Basic is a radio TRX and RX... the RX attaches to the foot of the 910, and the TRX attaches to the hot shoe... Camera fires, and the flash fires. Everything is pretty much Manual.

    Next step up starts to do things like allowing you to control the flash's output from the TRX, and whether the flash fires as TTL...

    If you only need occasional off-camera, that camera/flash combo will do off-camera using its own infrared signalling instead of radio to control the flash... usually good up to 30ish feet

    For manual off camera, Yongnuo's 603s work well and are only about $30 for a pair. If you want TTL, the 622s will provide it and are slightly more expensive. Both are RF. I've used the 603s for years with no problems and they also can trigger the shutter.

    I'm new to using off camera flash and a wireless controller but this Yongnuo YN-622N-TX kit is working perfectly for me on my D750.

    I have both the 603 II and YN622 kit. They work flawlessly with my YN-586

    FWIW Yongnuo is coming out with the YN-685N flash. Essentially a jacked up YN586.
    It has a transceiver built into it. Also an external battery port and a PC Port.
    I'm getting one as soon as someone has them in stock.
    When I'm out and about with one flash, not carrying triggers frees up a little space in my pack.

    No I don't work for them, I like their stuff.

    So this works perfectly with your SB-910 flash, or are you using another flash?

    I own an SB-700 and two Yongnuo flashes. I've used the triggers with several other flashes as well that weren't mine, SB-910's among them.

    Have you tried to remote fire the shutter using the YN-622N as the trigger and the YN-622N-TX still in the hotshoe on the camera?
    Be interested to know if it works that way

    If you have a moment and are willing to explore....

    Leave the TX on the hotshoe and connected via the cable.
    Use the 622N to trigger the shutter in A, S, M & Auto modes.

    I'm curious to know if it fires the shutter in all those modes with focussing as well
