    Additional Sony TTL Flash Option

    Looks like Phottix is supporting the Sony Multi-interface hotshot TTL cameras (NEX-6 or newer.)

    Re: Additional Sony TTL Flash Option

    There must be some incredible strange licensing from Sony´s side for the flash Protocol. And sorry 400$ for a flash that if it is for a Nikon or Canon camera , will sell from other brands for 150-200$ seems a bit strange to me.
    Means: full reengineering ? Thus the steep costs ?
    I welcome such new products. I just wonder why it seems to be so difficult to get a growing market share of cameras connected to a better supply of accessories.
    Failure of Sony - or - failure of the accessory industry ?

    The Canon and Nikon versions costs the exact same thing. Sony flashes can be quite a bit more expensive. I bought a Nissin i40 for $250 last week but that was on sale for $20 off. I guess I not disagreeing that it's not sort of expensive but there just aren't as many TTL options for Sony yet. I think it's mostly because there's just not as many out there and some probably think they're still using the Minolta flash system instead of a standard hotshoe.

    Impressive (to me) demo here:

    It is the HSS feature that could now be used better with radio control.
