    It wouldn’t be a first in this industry or others. I know LR is a *rumour* site but it just seems you are being played for cheap and easy publicity here.

    The only way this thing will change anything is if they have a new way of producing the flash output. An LED modelling lamp ain’t going to revolutionise shit. And isn’t new.

    While a flash with a built in LED modelling light may not be revolutionary, it would certainly be useful. It would be nice to have a modelling light facing forward while the flash head can be rotated. :-)

      Save yourself some money and strap a MagLite to the top of the flash head and put it on wide beam. :D

    “But would they make all this fuss over nothing as a pure marketing exercise?”

    Yes! If they’re claiming that it’s “no way… like any other speedlite or flashgun on the market” you have to ask what on earth they’re doing that no-one else has ever managed to do in the past. So far an LED light isn’t particularly exciting but if they build up enough hype it could sell enough units on its own.

    some Nikon flash’s already have that light,just under the red LA a small clear light called a modelling light,so nothing new then

    My guess as to what their unique feature will be: programmable motorized head that can move during an exposure.

    Just a wild guess though…

      For a flash? Seem like an unlikely feature to have.
