Review Date: March 31, 2021 I can recommend this item: Yes | Price: $90.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Genius Product
Cons: No new Firmware available anymore

This product was a genius solution.

It works with a lot of brand flashes.

It is really a pity that this company going out of business at December 2020. In the last 2 year it was never update with newer firmware.

Now the only TTL trigger on the market, is the one from Godox but this works only well with their own flashes

Review Date: January 7, 2019 I can recommend this item: Yes | Price: None indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: HSS Support for Pentax; TTL Passthrough
Cons: expensive

I will test them further. So far they are quite useful for HSS (at lest with the specialised Pentax Firmware.)
My Metz 58 AF-2 (newest firmware) can now be controlled wirelessly. (Zoom, Flashpower and TTL can be set via a Cactus transceiver.)
