Pixel king sony when updating
Featuring built in Optical Stead Shot (OSS) and a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture across the zoom range, the lens will be an ideal fit for nature, sports, travel, fashion, beauty and wedding photographers.This lens will ship this July for a retail price of ,500 US and ,300 CA.I'd definitely consider replacing my Pixel Kings as the Sony units have better UX it seems.Advantages 1) Radio not IR so more reliable triggering.While one can fault both Canon and Nikon for similar oversights in their latest radio triggered flash systems, we find the omission increasingly unforgivable given that 3rd party options like Phottix and Yongnuo to trigger AF beams on Sony FE cameras, due to Sony's continued lack of support of AF assist beams (save for the largely useless one built into the camera).We're hopeful that this is something Sony will address in the future.At a recent shooting event in San Diego, CA, I got some brief hands-on time with the new transmitters and receivers, and was pleased with how intuitive the user interface was (not something you can always take for granted with flash systems).For the shot below, I used E-TTL with three flashes (groups) - one (A) at camera right for some harsh side-lighting, one (B) front left of model Eliza as the key, and one (C) directly in front of her for a tiny bit of balance to the overall light.
I think its a well priced option, but may not suit everybody.
The FA-WRC1M commander will be sold for about 0 US and 0 CA.
The FA-WRR1 receiver will be sold for about 0 US and 0 CA. The new lenses, teleconverters and wireless lighting system will be sold at a variety of Sony authorized dealers throughout North America. If you have a RADIO trigger system, then it doesn't have an AF IR illuminator, what it does have is far more reliable flash triggering without line of sight required.
Realistically better performance 1/2000-1/4000 but it is possible.
The Flash would need to be a Sony Flash to do TTL because it would need to know how to handle the TTL protocol from the camera.
