Hi,
Maybe it's old news, and if so I would like to get is verfied.
Just found out that pixel is showing a new radio trigger wich is supposed to support TTL and HSS for Sony cameras:

Pixel King

Anyone heard of them, or is it to good to be true ?

Found a review on youtube of the canon versions. TTL and HSS works at least if you got Canon :D

Love the way he can control the flash in the menu.

I think it was known that the Sony version was in the pipeline, but this is the first I have seen of an actual trigger set for Sony. It looks good, but I can't find them anywhere for sale. The Canon version seems to sell for about $200 (L150) for a transmitter and two receivers, which doesn't seem exorbitant for what you get -- assuming you really do get remote TTL and HSS.

This is an interesting product.
Shame its limited to 1/8000 as there are some cameras with higher rates.

Some questions that come to mind are:
- Will it work with film cameras including those that came before the 7 ?
- Does it add wireless HSS for third party flashes that support HSS when mounted on camera (Metz 54 for example)? (IMO it should work)

Hmm..... "Airborne flash light"

Is this for a "photographic RPV" ?

Interesting...but...I would wait until they have a good picture. That funky "ISO" foot wouldn't fit on my camera!

I see what you mean - the side views show an ISO foot -- I think they used stock photos of the CaNikon versions. But if you look very closely at the first shot (that has the Sony header on it), you can see it has a blocky foot, which would be consistent with the Sony-style flash foot & adapters, etc.

Edit: there's also this one which allows groups... odd photo there, too (#3).

The canon are pretty expensive though.

Without meaning to offend or aggravate anyone, I'd like to point out that these units are AA-powered, and that nobody has yet mentioned that as a deficiency.

The Rook does not support TTL wireless operation of a remote flash at all. Only the hot shoe on the transmitter allows pass-through TTL operation of the on-camera flash while the remote flashes are also triggered by a simple radio signal to fire manually.

Does that pose a problem?
