Radio Popper Transmitters On Their Way...

More photo goodies!

If you've been looking for an alternative to the expensive Pocket Wizard radio flash triggers that currently rule the photo universe, you might just have a new 'expensive' option coming in the first weeks of January. Radio Poppers from Kevin King, Phoenix Arizona based wedding shooter, promises to be a revolutionary new transmitter / receiver flash trigger for working with E-TTL and Canon / Nikon cameras. His tiny Radio Popper receiver units promise more flexibility with shutter speed sync, increased transmitter working distance and flawless reliability in bright daylight. You can read more about his Radio Poppers on the STROBIST website, where you can follow links to an original article from September of this year.

There still seem to be a lot of skeptics and Pocket Wizard true-believers out there who want to cast doubt on his invention and scheduled January 2008 release date. You can check out the Radio Popper Website and decide for yourself.

I will buy these as soon as they come out!

It is not that I want the ETTL II functionality though that is great too but with Canon 580EX as a master I can set manual power levels on each flash wirelessly. With this device I can do so via radio!

Any word on the January release? The website has been strangely quiet...

Supposedly Pocket Wizard has their ETTL Radio version coming out shortly and you wont have to use Tape and stuff like you do on the RP.

We shall see! Also in the works is Quantums which was always the best anyway. I think they were all waiting to see what the Radio Popper looked like and how it functioned. Come to find out, its a bit cumbersome.
