Gadget Infinity Wirelessly Triggered Macro Twin Flash Combo

Someone finally did it and go figure it was the wonderful guys at Gadget Infinity. Gadget Infinity :: Digital Camera :: Flash :: Wirelessly Triggered Macro Twin Flash Combo for DSLR / SLR.
Best picture I could find.

Similar to the Nikon speedlight setup that I have been lusting over for about a year now but a universal setup and about 1/4 the price. I already have the V2s trigger and 2 receivers, I am wondering if I was able to find those little flashes if I could make the kit myself of if I should just buy this new complete kit. Either way, this is a great kit, cheap and looks to be just what I was wanting.

UPDATE: OK, the flashes are on eBay for $15 shipped. That Cokin P system can be had for about $15 and the lens hood for another $15. The soft diffusers are about $5 each. So for about $70+ I could replicate their system... or I could buy the kit and get an extra set of triggers for $40 more... I think I just sold myself on the kit.

It sounds cool to me Buddha but I'm tapped out right now, I should have my *300 in a couple of hours:-).
I really would like the triggers though, we'll see how fast I can recover, lol. I have three flashes and I need a way to fire them.

If I was more into macro, I think it would be cool to have a low-cost flash system. I really don't do much flash photography at all though.

Ditto on the "Account Suspended" message. I hope you didn't send them any money yet!

Stick with Gadget Infinity as they may still come good. I received a chinese knock off of the Benro ball head delivered to remote Oz in about 12 days - great bargain (but now have to pay almost as much for the adaptor so the 3/8" ball thread will fit my 1/4" tripod mount) sheesh - now you have got me interested in those flash heads. I do like macro above all else.

Cool, the site is back up. I am going to have to get a bigger tripod head to support the added weight of that unit. 900 grams, what a fatty.

Have you had a chance to use it? Any thoughts? Are the flash units fixed at one power or are they variable (both together or perhaps individually)?
