    Oooo. Glad I've been procrastinating in replacing my Poverty Wizards. (Which I still don't even fully know how to use anyway. :) )

    Canon FTW. :D

    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 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 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. :eek3: Then again I am going to be in Indianapolis in April... :)

    TheCameraStore has them listed as:

    MiniTT1: $252.73
    FlexTT5: $278.65

    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.

    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. :)

    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.. :D

    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.
