Pixel seeks beta testers for X700C flash

Pixel is looking for 20 photographers to try out its new X700C E-TTL flash before release.

Pixel X700C

Pixel Enterprise has announced the development of a new TTL flash, the X700C for Canon. The Pixel X700C sits somewhere between the existing Mago and X800C.

Ahead of the product’s final release, the manufacturer is reaching out to professional photographers, looking for volunteers to test and review the beta version.

The Pixel X700C will be a Canon E-TTL flash with optical master and slave functions, but not a built-in radio like in the X800C. It will also support high-speed sync and manual control down to 1/128 and is equipped with a PC sync port and external power input.

Guide number is specified as 60 (Iso-100, 200mm) with a 2.5-second recycle time.

The Pixel X800C currently sells for $170-190 on eBay while the lower-specced Mago flash is priced at half that amount. Expect the X700C to cost somewhere in the middle.
