arhmatic: Probably a beginner question regarding wireless - does this mean that the flash can be located anywhere in the room, and it can be triggered with the camera, within a certain range? Does the camera need to be wireless capable?

Btw. Fuji includes a clip on flash for the xt1 which is powered by the camera. It may trigger this new flash and may be compatible with xpro2.

I used to have a 7d and still have the 580ex ii, and the way it worked if I remember correctly was that if I had the pop up flash acting only as master, the pre flash would send the settings to the 580ex. Then a second low powered flash would fire from the pop up flash to fire the remote flash.

I have the xt-1 now and recently been playing around with the 580ex ii remotely using yongnuo 622c kit triggers. Works nicely.

*line of sight of the remote flash sensor - includes reflected light, yes. The pro/con is that the on camera flash will light your subject as well in close distances. And as mentioned outdoor setups are limited.

I believe this is a flash trigger and not a radio trigger. With flash triggers you will need to use a flash using the camera's hotshoe to trigger the remote flash and it has to be within the line of sight. You will also need to use compatible flashes.

akjos: Wow, its all nice , BUT, STILL no usb or sd card slot?? really? Im on the road ALL the time and despite what cell phone service providers make you believe , in LOT of places i have very questionable mobile internet connection, unless im close to bigger cities... I used mb pro 13" for 10 months now every day, mostly for email, skype, browsing, occasional photoshop and especially watching movies to kill some time.... With inability to connect external 1 TB HD or at least being able to pop in high capacity SD card, its pretty much useless to me. I waited and waited and hoped apple would listen and at least gave up SOME on extremely proprietary solution giving us at least darn usb port. I guess its too much to ask for. Im almost kind of happy to soon ditch my MBpro ( always a pc user anyways ) and firing up a loaded 17" asus ROG beast. WHile i enjoyed extensive time with my MBpro ,dont think ill miss apple much ...

akjos... you seems very savvy with forums (where you can find answers) your reasoning of not finding out if it works with your setup is something I cannot comprehend. Does your camera have 100% of what you want in a camera? If so great, but if it doesn't I'm sure you'll find out a work around.

You have the time to write something on this forum. Maybe you can spend it finding out if the connector kit works.

DanCart: I really dont get it, why is it that Apple refuse to add an SD card slot to their device ? Its a joke in this day and age that you have to start fiddling with plug in accesories to transfer photos, come on Apple show some common sense !
