    anyway let's just wait for the confirmed price to be out and product to be launched officially...
    maybe wrong info given by their staff...i was surprised by that price quote too..

    I hope the "teaser" was not released too early as this will cause people to lose interest eventually.

    Can we have a rough estimate on when this unit will be available? Jan/Feb/March? Maybe they are working on the prices now but a rough estimate for delivery from their manufacturers would help. Thanks.

    Ok i can safely say for sure it's not going to be $1k. think many of you have been fed the wrong info by the junior staff...

    I'm gonna drop a big hint and hope EG doesn't kill me - the price is going to be roughly half the retail price of the Quantum 2x2 in SG. So just do a little research and you'll know approx what it'll cost. i can't say any more than that...

    availability-wise, they are still gathering some feedback on performance from beta testing. once the performance is tried and tested to spec, they should be bringing the stocks in.

    quick update... i'm testing the prototype as we speak. the power level is down to 2 bars (out of 5) and the refresh rate at full blast is still less than one second. It's not 100% scientific but I'm looking at the indicator light (which changes from red to green when it's done refreshing) and my clock at same time, and I'd guess the refresh rate is around 3/4 of a second. this is after using the batt pack in actual field work. so in the field, if you're not shooting full blasts all the way (which would prob fry your speedlight anyway), the refresh should be plenty fast.

    $500 for the battery pack and $499.99 for the connecting cables?

    I am just being cheeky... now my interest is back...

    By the way, I hope that EG, as a service to customers, will help order cables for the customers who buy their packs. There are many of those who are not on N/C and I hope that this will not become a "majority users only product". This kind of things will go very far for customer service.

    Just my two cents for those on other camera systems.

    looks good if it's gonna be half the price of the quantum

    but.. i already have the quantum...

    for those who haven't experienced the joy of having fast recharge times, u should try it. u won't be able to wipe the smile off ur face especially if u're a machine gunner. just dun sell ur flash to me second hand.
