A review of Godox‘s Sony-fit PT-04 flash triggers has been posted here. On a related note, bad news for Sony users, who likely won’t ever be getting an iISO-fit Yongnuo RF-602:

Asked the manufacturer, they said that the Sony version won’t be produced in the future, but only Canon and Nikon version. Some ideas may meet your needs:

First, Sony A900/A850/A700 has PC port, these cameras can be connected to the the transmitter with a PC-PC cable, it will work as attaching to the hot shoe. But kindly note that and other Sony DSLR cameras doesn’t have PC port.

Second, use a YN-H3 adapter to connect the transmitter to the Sony hot shoe.

The Yongnuo YN-465 (Canon version) flash got a positive review here. Meanwhile the newer Yongnuo YN-467 (Canon) received 4.5 stars out of 5 in this short review.

There have been some rumblings about the touch-screen-controlled CM-series monolights manufactured by Chinese company Menik, manufacturer of studio lights (and, er, cookers). The only distributor we know of so far is this one in Australia.
