Jinbei, China’s largest studio lighting manufacturer, will introduce new gear this year, including:
- A pure sine wave inverter battery pack, for powering mains studio flashes
- A 2.4GHz wireless flash trigger
- A product called “Qflash” – though we don’t know yet what this will be.
Ten-metre TTL cords, priced US$45.00, are now available for Canon and for Nikon from Phottix Photo Accessories.
In March, the Nikon version of the Pixel King Wireless i-TTL Trigger will be on sale in Europe from March 2012, distributed by Delta (Foto-Tip). According to the manufacturer, it will be compatible with the Nikon SB-900, SB-800, SB-700, SB-600 and SB-400, and 3rd party flashes from Nissin, Metz and Sunpak. The new Nikon SB-910 is not mentioned, but may also be compatible. It is not stated whether or not Yongnuo brand flashes will work.
Functions will include FP Sync, i-TTL, flash exposure compensation and auto-focus assist. Visit the Pixel Enterprise web site for more information.
Floyd, the open-source LED lamp with user-programmable colour temperature, will have on board Wi-Fi support, potentially allowing it to be controlled from your tablet or smartphone. Click here for more details.
