does anyone want to take over pttl.mattdm.org?

I've put a lot of work over the years into my guide to P-TTL hot shoe flashes, but my current job does not give me the spare time. And not only are there new P-TTL flash models, there are several new options for manually-controlled flashes that still let you set the power from the camera body which I'd also like to include, in an ideal world....

Anyone interested in taking this over? (It's hosted on wikidot, by the way, so if you're familiar with that, that'd be a bonus, but it's pretty easy to learn. I've done some complicated things with templates but if you're reasonably geeky you can figure it out....)

I'd suggest that this website is brought into the Pentax Forums website as a specialised section on P-TTL flash use.

Regards

I second your proposition: let's have Adam make that a reality.

Matt, I can't take over the website, but I did want to say thanks for all you've done with it. It was extremely helpful when I was deciding on which flash units to buy.
Best wishes,
Kevin

That would be fine, although it does currently use a lot of the wikidot features which would have to be translated.

Thanks! I put a ridiculous amount of work into it and I'm glad it's benefited other people.

It's a fantastic site. I really hope that it can be integrated in Pentaxforums.

Matt,

I'm not in a position to help out with the P-TTL site, but I did want to complement you on it, and also to say congratulations on being named Fedora Project Leader. As a Fedora user myself it's nice to know the project is in good hands.

Hope to still see you around here from time to time.
