Nice new design....
.. and a full review by David Hobby
This is promising, (UPDATE: $199 for the MiniTT1, $219 for the FlexTT5.)
Oooo. Glad I've been procrastinating in replacing my Poverty Wizards. (Which I still don't even fully know how to use anyway. )
I just picked up a few Pocket Wizard Plus for cheap in Bridgewater, but i am sure I can squeeze a few more pocket wizards into the budget.
hmm. Very interesting. Glad I didn't add to my PW collection when I planned on it. These look great!
I bought one 2 weeks ago...
cheaper to get 2 of them then the SU-800 i was vibing! (and they work with my plus II's weeee)
Wow!!! Those are sexy!!!!
where did you see that?
Bottom of the strobist article and just confirmed by Chase Jarvis on Facebook and twitter.
Very nice! setup. Obviously the wireless long range TTL is the wave of the future.
I cant wait to get these, I just broke the hot shoe mounts off of two of my PW's. They are still good for hanging off of strobes but no good for the camera.
These bad boys look awesome!
I didn't see an ETA for availability - did anyone come across it?
Nice. Thanks. Lets buy some.
So where's the best place to buy PWs when these are available?
The Camera Store says ETA later March, but they have prices up.
Edited: sorry had wrong store name first
I see BH has them listed ($199 for the Mini, $219 for the receiver as stated above) but nothing on Henrys or Vistek yet.
I'm wondering if we're going to get hosed on these like the prices are for the older PW models. Henrys has the MultiMax listed for $479 CND when its $279 USD at BH. Then again I am going to be in Indianapolis in April...
Thats almost worth the plane ticket to NY if your buying a few
TheCameraStore has them listed as:
They seem reasonably priced. Should be in Canadian funds too.
Has anybody heard anything more concrete on a release date for these? I can't tell if they're just out of stock everywhere or they haven't been released yet.
For Canon of course.
People have them.. might just be people in the US though. Check out POTN.
Ordered a TT1/TT5 set this afternoon, hopefully should be in in a week or so. Probably a wasteful purchase but I have toy impulse control.
When you want it.. it'll be there for use. How is that wasteful..
More just impulsive because I tend to buy toys rather than properly learn to use what I have. Its my ADD showing through.
In theory.. eventually you will need to use something you bought and you'll have to learn how to use it. That's how I'm working it. And some PW's are on my list..
I preordered a whole long ass time ago! They wont be in til at least the end of April.
Quite the wait but will be worth it.
The guy I ordered from seemed more optimistic, but I'm not sure he had any special info. I was told they're -70ish in the Henrys computer but that includes stock for store shelves, not just pre-orders.
Eh, I can wait.
Let me know if you get them, I ordred from the camera store. Talked to a few people at a few different Henry's and they all had no idea when they would arrive.
The camera store originally said I would have them in my hands at the end of March.
Jeez, still nothing from Henrys and well over a month. This time they had no idea when they might come in, though online seems to say they're not expecting any until at least the end of the month.
