dwill23: They get canon gear, reverse engineer it, rebuilt it and sell it. I have one of their flashes for my canon. It mounts loosely, but otherwise works pretty well.

I don't think the folks at canon are too happy about this.

What kind of focus motor will it have?

marc petzold: 1300D Users should dump their 18-55 IS II and get the 18-55 STM instead, this lens is standard since 2013 onto the better Canon Rebel Middleclass Series (xxxD)

I agree, but at least the 18-55 IS II is better than the 18-55 III which has no Image Stabilization. It seems that some kits still include the 18-55 III.

-5 fps, and only 3 fps with adapted glass

-Long viewfinder blackout

Why even bother trying to shoot sports?

msowsun: "half the the size of a DSLR, but with all the power"

How can it have all the power with a sensor that is almost 4 times SMALLER?

Large aperture lens on which camera? Please explain how a 4/3 camera with a tiny crop sensor can have all the power of a full frame 24mm x 35mm sensor

canon20s: I like that NO ONE has mentioned that this grip is 2X the weight of the Canon one. Shooting weddings all day, i need a VG and i want it to be as light as possible. For the extra $100 over the canon from BHPhoto, ill spend it to save 200g.
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/847530-REG/Canon_5261B001_BG_E11_Battery_Grip_for.html

The weight in the review is wrong. The Phottix grip does not weigh 540g. They must have included the batteries.

The Phottix grip is made of plastic and weighs slightly less than magnesium Canon BG-E11.

Milton Tischenberg: Have to hold the flash with masking tape.

I just recieved mine today.

My only complaint about these triggers is that the cold "foot" of the receiver is very loose and will not stay put in a typical flash stand bracket that comes with your flash. You pretty much have to use the 3/8 thread to mount it on something.

The transmitter is not a problems because my camera hot shoe has little spring arms that help engage the foot and the transmitter foot also has a spring loaded "ground" that engages the side of the hotshoe.

msowsun: Does it just control the aperture form the camera?

Or can it actually meter wide open, and then stop down to the selected aperture when you press the shutter?

Setting the aperture from the body does not necessarily mean it will meter wide open and then stop down automatically when you press the shutter.

I guess the camera will be able to handle it but I am just a little suspicious.
