and i would really like to know more about these mystery products.
I have a sneaky suspiscion it will be something to allow remote power control of some brands of studio strobes. . .
If they've gone to such great lengths to reverse engineer ETTL, then reverse engineering Profoto Air or Elinchrom Skyport or Alien Bees . . . should be a cakewalk. Depending on what sort of inputs each brand requires for remote operation it could be as simple as a cable and a firmware update, or a small converter box . . .
there's nothing to say it would be impossible. And it'd be *very* cool
Furthermore . . .why couldn't you cheat those studio strobes and blend them with in-camera ETTL? It'd be MUCH more complicated, but again, not impossible. Use FEL to fire the remotely-controlled-studio-strobes at some known power-level, and listen to what the camera says it should be adjusted by to to achieve proper exposure+FEC . . . The studio strobes could be automatically dialed into that level. Ratios with the Zone Controller would be taken into account as well (of course)
