Dear Gadget Infinity...

Dear Gadget Infinity

Firstly I would like to congratulate you on a series of products that appear to be both usable and sensibly priced.

I am in fact a user of the Cactus V4 wireless trigger devices and am most happy with them.

I notice whilst browsing your website that a clone of the Vivitar 285hv is available from you in the form of the Cactus KF36... (which gets good feedback from strobist groups on flicr...)

It is my hope that the cloning of classic and well regarded flashguns by your good selves will not stop at the Vivitar 285hv...

I have a request...

Please please make a Sunpak 120J... I have been watching Zack Arias use his and I really really want one... Bare bulb sexyness... Hmmm...

I live in hope...
Kindest regards
Dave Holmes

Response... (Copied and pasted from my email account)

Dear David,

Thank you for your inquiry.

The KF36 is not a clone. It is indeed the exact same model of the original Vivitar 285HV.

The original Vivitar was designed and manufactured by a Hong Kong company and Vivitar bought the license. The license has now ceased with Vivitar and the original design of the 285HV was available for sale. So the intellectural property rights no longer belongs to Vivitar.

Therefore, regarding the Sunpak 120J, we are afraid that we cannot assist it that regard.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have further questions or concerns. Thank you!

Best regards,
Antonio Lao
