Sony Wireless Flash Trigger

Sony Announces Wireless TTL+HSS Flash Control System

Ricoh needs to expand into this segment. I'm sure the Sony wont be cheap and it is proprietary, but its good to see.

The Acon R930 for Pentax is cheap and proprietary - doesn't have any bells and whistles.

I'm sure they will be pricey. I use Pocket Wizards and never use TTL metering. I would like to see Sony and/or Ricoh get into studio lighting.

Next step: an actual Sony-brand flash unit with radio triggering built-in (like the Canon 600 EX and recently announced Nikon SB 5000). Eventually all flash units will probably have some sort of radio triggering built-in, I think.

It's surprising how slow camera makers have been moving into radio flash. Ricoh isn't the only laggard.

When you see the margins that are in studio equipment you would think they would get into the market. Especially with the 645 being a prime studio format. Ricoh seems to have very limited resources. The pixel shift feature is perfect for studio work still life and product photography with continuous lighting.
