Ojecoco H-430 2.4GHz wireless flash trigger Transmitter (TX) for Nikon

Probably the best system available for off camera flash and studio strobe work.

Item Description

IMPORTANT NOTE: H-430 and H-550 Trigger sets are in Nikon and Canon camera fit only (see table below for cross-compatibility with other makes of cameras (Sony/Minolta fit is not yet supported). These trigger systems do NOT transmit TTL signals wirelessly. In order to work, at least 2 system units (TX/TRX/RX) must be purchased and used.

Costwold Photo bring you the new Ojecoco family of of flash/camera triggering systems. We believe that the H-430 and H-550 to be the best available system for strobists (photographers using off-camera flashes and studio strobes) in this price range.

The H-430 and H-550 systems combine shutter release, trigger and high-speed trigger all in one. Users may choose either one according to their requirements. It utilizes the global free FSK 2.4G wireless radio frequency, with 5 independent broadcast channels (all compatible with the H-550), and can be used in a variety of situations where there may be many photographers working in the same place and time (like sports events). The H-430 offers efficient control, speed of operation and setup, range, and reliability.

What to buy Q&A:

  • To trigger one off camera flash when pressing the camera shutter release: 1 x H430TX and 1 x H430RX.
  • To remotely trigger a camera shutter: 1 x H430TX, 1 x H430RX and a suitable shutter release cable.
  • To remotely trigger the camera shutter and at the same time relay trigger one off camera flash: 1 x H430TX, 1 x H550TRX, 1 x H430RX and a suitable shutter release cable.
  • To trigger one off camera flash using HSS timing (faster than the camera maximum x-sync speed) when pressing the camera shutter release: 1 x H550TX, 1 x H430RX and a suitable shutter release cable. Note that the Ojecoco H-550 HSS system only works with Canon and Nikon cameras that have shutter sync ports. If your Nikon camera has the video feature, the Ojecoco HSS system will not work with this option.
  • To remotely trigger the camera shutter and at the same time relay trigger one off camera flash using HSS timing (faster than the camera maximum x-sync speed): 1 x H430TX, 1 x H550TRX, 1 x H430RX and a suitable shutter release cable. Note that the Ojecoco H-550 HSS system only works with Canon and Nikon cameras that have shutter sync ports. With the exception of the new nikon D800/800E (where Nikon have fixed the problem), if your Nikon camera has the movie mode, you must trigger the shutter release in this way (remotely, and not from a camera shutter press) for the HSS to work.
  • To synchronously trigger one slave camera shutter when pressing a master camera shutter release: 1 x H550TRX, 1 x H430RX and two suitable shutter release cables. Note that the Ojecoco H-550 master-to-slave camera relay system only works with Canon and Nikon cameras that have shutter sync ports. If your Nikon master camera has the video feature, the Ojecoco synchronous remote camera triggering system will not work with this option. Continuous shooting mode on the slave camera is not supported with this setup combination.
  • Many other combinations are possible, such as adding additional flashes and cameras.

Main Features (H-430 and H-550):

  1. Capable of wireless single shot, continuous shooting, B (Bulb) shooting, ECP trap shooting (H-430TX only), camera relay shooting (H-550TRX only) and wired shutter control.
  2. Wireless auto wakeup of flashes (those that support wakeup, for example the Nikon SB 600/700/800/900 series flashes).
  3. Wirelessly sync trigger camera flash, slave cameras (H-550TRX required), studio flashes and off camera flashes, indoors or outdoors.
  4. H-430TX/H-550TRX support TTL pass-through .
  5. The H-430 provides 5 independent channels and the H-550 has these same 5 channels and 9 more of its own, to be used in a busy environment where many photographers use flash at the same time and place.
  6. Use a master camera to control multiple cameras for photographing from different angles. The H-550 can, depending on camera, do this synchronously.
  7. Provides 3 individual flash groups giving 7 different group combinations.
  8. In basic triggering mode: sync speed is up to 1/320s for mechanical shutter cameras, and in excess of this for hybrid electronic/mechanical shutter cameras (dependent on camera design). In HSS mode, the H-550 can sync up to 1/8000s (again, dependent on camera).
  9. H-430 is available in Transmitter and Receiver form factor and they are designed to be used together; both are compatible with the H-550TRX, which is available in Transceiver form factor. We will also maintain compatibility with the trigger series that follows after the H-550.
  10. Accidental reverse polarity battery installation will not damage the unit.
  11. Wheel lock for underside hot and cold shoes; the H-430 also features a locking pin.


The H-430TX and H-550TRX are available with two differently configured metal underside male hot shoes (with matching topside female hot shoes on both TX and RX):

Ojecoco H-430 Shoe Types

The H-550 is for use with supported Nikon and Canon cameras, and H-430 can be used* with suitable cameras and flashes from the following manufacturers:

H-430 Variant Camera Manufacturer Flash Types
Canon type Canon OEM Flashes
Compatible Flashes
Studio Flashes
Nikon type Nikon

* Not all H-430/H-550 functions may be available with all camera models. In particular, pay attention to older models of flash and their trigger voltages (maximum safe is 300V attached to the RX), as some may cause harm to the H-430. A good place to check is here. It is possible to use the H-430 Canon type as a Nikon type and vice versa if needed, but some functionality may be lost (such as TTL pass thru and flash wakeup). Note, some camera manufacturers produce ranges that may use Nikon or Canon hot shoe pin layout, so pay attention to the pinouts shown above in the diagram and order the set type that best matches your camera hot shoe. Especially note that the H-430TX features a lock pin so your camera hot shoe must have a suitable lock hole for it to fit in to - some cameras do not have the correct receiving hole. If in doubt, please ask before you order.
