Cool video, i like that you breeezed through it while giving pertinent information.

Couple things i don't see mentioned though, are Camera Triggering (Can the v5 even do that? I'm guessing so..) and the always handy issue of wanting to trigger the camera remotely while having it fire remote flashes at the same time.

Another thing i personally do alot of is to have the TX trigger via PC, so that i can get AF Assist from my on-camera flash, are there any issues triggering the V5s via PC compared to via hotshoe ?
