    Cost me just under $600AUD delivered for one transmitter and two receivers. About what a set of PocketWizards would be close to costing - but I can do high-speed sync and all my adjustments at the camera on the fly.

    It'd be cool to fire a flash at 300+m, but really, would I ever use it... :Paranoid:

    Haven't really been following the poppers but build looks good. :thumbup:

    So the receiver just pumps out the correct IR signals to the slaves then?

    Nah I don't think these are IR.. operate similar to pocket wizards I believe
    (without checking the site :p so sorry if I'm wrong)
    They have a massive range like PWs.

    i think it is radio signal from trigger 'popper to slave 'popper and then the slave 'popper sends the IR signal to the flash to alter the power settings.

    f@rmboy is jealous. Pocket Wizzards are great for triggering speedlites but lack for sending ettl info (580EXII excluded)

    pocket wizards doesn't send ETTL/iTTL information. When using pocket wizards, everything has to be in manual

    I thought they didnt' send overseas?

    Rather than having to plug the PW into a 3rd party hotshoe the 580EXII has a pc port that the PW plugs into directly. F@rmboy is of the belief that this allows ettl info to be transmitted. F@rmboy does not have a 580EXII (yet) so he can't confirm it.

    f@rmboy takes it all back. PW don't send any info other than switching.
