I don't think you can control Canon E-TTL via JrX.

interesting flex on a STICK.. what will be next? ha ha..
seriously.. you must have an assistant then?

The nice part of it is I can shoot it w/o an assistant if need be. Often I do have someone helping me, which is of course easier. But for close in grab-n-go, the FF ( 1DS ) with the 24-70, and the 'flash on a stick', it's actually pretty easy to hold it all yourself.
Having said that however one thing I decided some time back though is that one of the most important 'accessories' you can have is....an assistant !

It seems the Jrx Studio does control power of AB as well as hot shoe flash.

I don't think you can either. What they are saying is that, if a flash has TTL functionality, you will be able to adjust manual power on the fly.

The interface to adjust power is only for Alienbees, which would be different to a Canon flash. The way they sync a flash would be via a PC sync cord.

Read the following:

2. EZset Strobe: With Patent Pending EZset Strobe, a photographer can now dial up and down the power on nearly any past or present handheld TTL capably flash directly from a JrX or PX Transmitter. It is time to dust off those old flashes that you couldn’t sell on ebay for $30! Note that EZset Strobe will need to be used with the RPcube (connects JrX Receiver Sync Port to the hot-shoe of a handheld flash) which will be available in 6-8 weeks for purchase.

Too bad, few days ago i dropped my flexTT5 both of them once, and today i dropped one of them again and it has little damage but still working, it is under guarantee yet [less than 1 month i bought] will they repair it free because of dropping or that mistake is out of guarantee?
Too bad, it seems i started to damage my gear and pay for repairing.

What do you mean it is not working? give more details on what settings on both PW you set, not sure if that PW MM is similar or equal to that PW plusII so i can try myself.

If they fix it, it will out of the goodness of their hearts, not because they have to.


cheers, juice (Canon shooter, Elinchrom lighter, but pretty much agnostic on brands.)

If you bought them with a credit card, check your credit card contract. Some cards offer accidental loss and damage insurance.

Well I have the Flextt5 set on C1 A, and the PW plus II set on channel 1 and it's my understanding that they are all suppose to communicate if on the same channel.

The c1 on the side of the unit is configuration 1 rather than channel 1. You set what channels are assigned to which configuration from within the software. I think you may need to assign specific channels to get it to communicate with older PWs. Check the manual.
