    So far Nissin, Phottix, Elnchrom have jumped into the supporting of Sony gear. Wondering when Profoto is going to do the same with their products or Pocketwizard even.

    • Sony has opened their system more than any other manufacture for third party accessories. It doesn’t surprise me that everyone is jumping to release products for their cameras.

        Well not sure about everyone jumping in. I think royalties may play a part in the hold up. But also the multi-interface show has had its connection issues.
