Announced weeks ago yes. But available where?
$450 on phottix web site online store
I have not been able to find these in china yet
i'm in shanghai now and will see if i can find them this week
So $49 less than a 600-EX-RT new or $70 more than a 600-EX-RT from Canon via the refurbished store. Doesn't seem like much of a deal to me.
depends if you already have a heavy investment in the odin system like me also canon refurb store is only for USA so the rest of the world get screwed and everywhere else is more expensive anyway. But also I expect thats their MSRP i would think once they are available they can be had cheaper which is why i'm trying to find them locally so i can haggle
Don't get me wrong, I very seriously considered the Odin system before deciding, despite its limitations on my current bodies, that the RF system was a better investment for me.
My point was rather, look how far we have come, I still have a working set of Yongnuo RF-602's, at $30 a set they beat the likes of Pocket Wizard by miles, at less than 1/10 the price. Now we are into 80-90% the cost of the thing they are copying, there has been a quantum shift in the way this third party flash equipment is viewed and valued.
Obviously if you have a heavy investment in one system or another it becomes a daunting prospect to consider a switch. But for new users a lot more thought on where you want to end up is time well spent, I spent a lot of time weighing up my options and am 100% happy with the choices I made even though the initial investment might have been more or my early functionality reduced.
Flashes are becoming like tripods, we all buy two or three we wish we hadn't before ending up with the one we should have bought in the first place. http://www.bythom.com/support.htm
