Hi,
anyone tried to use the King Pixel E-TTL Flash Trigger on a 5D3, together with Canon and Metz flashes?

regards

Works fine for me with my 580EXII.

Bump.... I am also interested in this trigger set. Does the e-TTL really works?
What is the effective range. Especially out doors the IR comms of the master-slave set up with my current speedlights doesn't work well. So I am looking at something effective for on the beach or out in the fields.

Worked well with my 7D in a gymnasium with both 70' from camera. I was able to adjust both right from camera. I believe, haven't tried yet, with the optioning of group from the Kings you will be able to control each flash independently. AGAIN…I haven't tried yet! They are a good starting point to get familiar with remotes.

My only complaint about the Pixel King is that rather than remembering the last setting, if you power cycle the transmitter, it resets back to E-TTL, HSS and either 24mm or 50mm (I forget). I have to keep remembering to check that whenever I power-on.
