On Phottix Mitros Flash for Canon Review article (38 comments in total)

I don't get this. The 580EXii, to which this is compared, is a discontinued item. So you really have to compare it to the 600EX-RT. The 600EX-RT is currently selling for $550 USD, and has sold in the past for $500. So why would you even consider buying this thing with a radio control and all its failings for $400? If you insist on buying cheap sh*t, may as well buy the Yongnuo YN-E3-R controller for $130 and either buy Canon 600EX, or wait for the Yongnuo equivalents which should be out soon.

The lack of an external charger is annoying but if you can afford $750 for a camera you can afford to go to ebay and get a charger and a few spare batteries for next to nothing. That's what i did with my RX100.

Whatever happened to pbase? It's what I'm mostly using but wonder why no one even mentions it anymore.

I was going to post something but the character limit here is so low you can't make an argument for anything.

"There are a lot of wannabe fashion and beauty photographers"

I stopped reading there. Why insult people that comprise a large part of your audience?

Hopefully 5Dmkiii comes right behind...

What we really need is a revised price. Then I might buy one.

Only DPR fans seem impressed. Nokia stock down 16% today after the announcement. IOW, a big yawn.

An odd time for a review given that the ST-E3-RT is available for the same price.

In reply to:

suncoast: Is there any L-Plate that could work with this battery grip? For me, the only incentive to use a battery grip is to double the battery life when shooting time-lapse at night automatically, especially in the cold environment. It seems the battery door for the grip is larger than the MB-D12, thus I guess most of the RRS type of L-Plate can not really work well with this one, since it will block the battery door which means you may have to remove the L-Plate before changing the battery.

Any one has experience with it? Thanks.

My experience was with the Canon grip but in addition to the battery drain fiasco the grip did not fit with an RRS L plate. And this after Pixel said it was the same size. So don't count it.

Better make sure this doesn't have the same battery drain issues that the Canon one did or does. I bought two of these for my 5D mkiii and they were worthless cuz of the drain issue. Company wouldn't make good either. So I was out two hundred bucks for the two grips, PLUS the money I then spent for the OEM version.

Sometimes you really do get what you pay for, and this is one of these times.

I'd really love to buy this camera. But my budget has gone to the 5D mkiii. Maybe next year!

I'll be calling Fuj AFTER May 2012 to get a new sensor! This is going to cost them a lot of money, but good to see them take care of business.

I can't believe no one's complaining about the price hike! The 5D I and II were $2500 bodies. This is 30% more! I won't be upgrading from my mkII, altho it would be nice to have decent focusing for a change.
