I have 3 in 1 Neewer remotes, one transmitter and 4 receivers. Can I use the receivers to fire the flash and activate the shutter with the transmitter at the same time? I notice there is a flash and shutter or camera slide on the sides, does this mean all I can do is one or the other? I have a Neewer 670 flash unit and an El cheapo flash that came in the camera kit. I would like to use remote shutter and remote flash when pressing the remote transmitter button, not sure if that will happen. I am afraid to try.

    FC-16 or 240s? It looks like Neewer labels both of these as "3-in-1" triggers from Amazon's listings. – inkista Oct 23 '15 at 19:02
  • I do not know your exact configuration, but I would try to set diferent frequency, one to triger the camera, and after that, the camera triggers the flash. – Rafael Dec 23 '15 at 19:11
  • Well I added a trigger transmitter to the camera shoe and a receiver with the cable to trigger the shutter on the camera. Works great. All I need for two remote flash units is a receiver for each, a receiver for the shutter on the camera and two transmitters, one to send the signal to the flash units from the camera shoe and one to trigger the shutter. The shutter trigger thusly triggers the flash shoe on the camera and thusly sending a signal to the two receivers on the flash units!! Easy to do and works great. – Dave Bro Dec 30 '15 at 14:40
  • What is your second transmitter set to? My problem is that the neewer fc-16 has to be set to "Camera" to trigger the shutter on the receiver. How do I set my new transmitter so that it activates upon the first transmitter being pressed? – Village Idiot Jan 2 at 4:26

Its Extremely unlikely, even if you could get the remote to fire both camera and flash, that they would be in sync.

Remember there is a (small) delay from pressing the shutter button, the only way to reliably sync the flash with the shutter is have the camera itself trigger the flash(es).

If you did manage to get the remote to fire both, its highly likely that thr flash would fire before the shutter has started to open.

  • Thanks for your help, I figured a way to do it. I need to add a transmitter to the cameras flash shoe set to flash and use another remote transmitter set to trigger and to signal a receiver that has a cable to the camera to trigger the camera shutter. That will set off the flash when the camera is triggered. Just more money! LOL!! – Dave Bro Oct 26 '15 at 11:34
  • Actually, the Yongnuo RF-603 (and successor) transceivers can do dual-duty as a shutter Rx/flash Tx with correct timing, so you only need three units, rather than four to do remote shutter and one remote flash. It all depends on the units you use. – inkista Oct 26 '15 at 15:42
