Following our quick comparison of the Pixel King II with the newly-released Hähnel Viper, we have got our hands on the full specifications of the King II TTL Trigger from Pixel’s Photokina catalogue.
Notably, there will be a Nikon version supporting group control just like the Canon version (contrasting with the Hähnel Viper, which is only available for Canon). This would make the King II for Nikon a worthwhile upgrade from the King I, which cannot adjust groups of flashes independently.
