No chatter on POTN about them, so if they are available its the special stealth model.

They have released the Nikon version as it can't use the menus like you can on a canon. I have mine on order for my nikon.

Another thread speculated about an April or later release. I truly hope that speculation is wrong. I would really like to see it sooner.

Yeah, I need another pair and I would like to buy a combo rather than two transceivers.

I would buy one! I control everything in-camera now. I think this would be much more practical.

I based that assessment on the fact that the Nikon version has just gone into production, and it will take some time to fulfil merchants orders. YN opened a new production line last year but still have capacity limits. Then add on the Chinese New Year break. Mr Liang is probably on leave... He's earned it.

For canon shooters that have current camera models that can be controlled from the menu.. this might not be such a good idea. I would personally rather have another 622c which doubles as a transmitter and receiver. you drop one a break it you have another receiver.. I prefer dual function for my needs. Older camera users users and Nikon users..no brainer

Mike. I understand your point but I'm thinking the TX menu would be quicker and easier to get to than the camera menu. I think there is definitely two sides to that coin.

Exactly. This will be much more efficient than going into than navigating through the camera menu each time you want to adjust something. Not to mention not having to open an umbrella box to access the flash if you're running in mix mode.

Besides, if you have only the transceivers, and you drop one and break it, you're down a transceiver. If you get the tx and break it, you can use a transceiver that you already had, and you're down a transceiver. If you get the tx and break a transceiver, you're still down... yep a transceiver.

x = n + 1 where x equals the number of tranceivers and n is the number of flashes; I always have a spare tranceiver. Right now I have 3 flashes and 5 transceivers.

I will start with one transmitter. Actually, I'll probably stick with one. If it fails, I'll use the backup transceiver as a transmitter and just use in-camera menus. God forbid the day a tranceiver and the transmitter need to be replaced during a shoot, LOL.

One can only be so prepared. But redundancy is key!

But, but... What about the redundancy for the redundancy? What if, *gasp* two break? Wha'cha gonna do then mister? Huh? Huh? :lol:

And why does my iPad autocorrect "wha'cha" to "Whoa'charts?" Is that a real word?
