cybersyncs will not do ettl. Pocketwizards or Pixel King also makes an ettl trigger. There may be others now.

ETTL is great when you're in a situation where light can change a lot and often....
when at a reception, light isn't likely to change much at all throughout, and really doesn't always help you keep the ambient light (I'm assuming that most receptions, you want to keep most of that ambient light)

I'd recommend manual for that, and if you have something like a PW AC3 (or anything else that would allow you to remotely control light output) then you can make some adjustments as needed

Mitch,
I haven't done a ton of research, but will the cybersyncs allow for ettl and has also with speedlights? Or will they just trigger them manually? I really like the idea of the meter on them.

oh, sorry, i didn't realize that you wanted all the lights ettl

i like running the ofc in manual so it's consistent. and it's easy to do if you can control them from the camera.
i just chimp and adjust, real scientific like haha

It's not necessarily a requirement, but at this point, if I'm spending the money, why not include all the features just in case....
