Hey all,

    If I could change ONE thing, I would make the body have the integrated grip like the 1D series. Nothing else.

Hey all,

    Here is a photo SOOC, Canon 7D with Tamron 70-200 Di VC USD lens with 2 Pixel Mago flashes firing in ETTL mode, @25% crop, no editing other than crop.

Hey all,

    As for the Pixel flash and ETTL, I use two of the flashes on a monopod to shoot HS football, with the flashes in ETTL mode. The ONLY time I have exposure issues is if I try to shoot faster than recycle time allows... and that has decreased significantly since I started using the TD-381 battery packs. ETTL works very well!

Hey all,

    These are from a Chumash Indian Inter Tribal Pow Wow this past weekend. Shot with a 7D. There are more in the 7D forum.

Hey all,

    You should look at the Pixel Mago speedlight. It is a great flash AND it's only $88!! Every option of any Canon flash EXCEPT the built in radio feature of the 600EX-RT.

Hey all,

    I recently picked up 3 Pixel Mago ETTL speed lights that do what you are asking, even the video light! (It's a 2 watt LED light on the front.) I just did a firmware upgrade which opened up S1 and S2 capabilities, as well as having the ETTL, Manual and Multi (strobe) modes. All for $88!! Yes, they do work with Canon's optical system, I have tried it on my 7D and it worked as advertised.

Hey all,

    Make sure the 430EX II is in ETTL mode and NOT in slave mode. Fresh Batteries. That's all I can think of off the top of my head...   ???

Lighting / RPS vs Pixel King Pro
« on: September 05, 2014, 12:46:10 AM »
Hey all,

     I recently purchased some Pixel Mago flashes and realized that they don't play well with my PW Flex/Mini system.

    I tried these http://www.samys.com/p/Remote-Transmitters--Slaves/RSRT10C/Wireless-eTTL-Remote-Control-For-Canon-DSLR/142166.html and they work, but then I have to fumble through the camera menu to make adjustments to levels and such.... OR,

    Do I spend, basically, double and get the Pixel King Pro triggers http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pixel-King-Pro-E-TTL-Wireless-Flash-TRIGGER-ONLY-with-LCD-Display-for-Canon-/281202092212?pt=Camera_Flash_Accessories&hash=item4178f368b4 and make the adjustments on the triggers instead?

    I guess I am looking if anyone knows or has experience with the reliability of each or either. Thanks for any input you guys have!

Hey all,

   For what it's worth, I purchased the Pixel Magos flash(es) for @ $89 each and love them so much that I will keep them even though, at the moment, they do not play together with my PW Flex/Mini setup! The LED light being used as a modeling light is SWEET, the menu is straight forward, and, best of all, a GREAT deal!! I will just wait for full compatibility and use the sync cables that I ordered. I do plan on getting a charging pack of some sort in the near future, though!

Hey all,

    Anyone know about HHS compatibility with the PW Flex/Mini setup? I would think it would be close to, or the same as, the Odins...
