    Alternative would be Elinchrom skyports which is lighter and cheaper, but the range is not as extreme.

    b) Too powerful device which can go to 1600feet
    this is security risk as device can be modified for non-photographic use like Terrxxxxxxst

    Com'on! a $80 cell phone can cover longer range. I don't belif that is a valid reason. Tho' I agreed that it's a must to regulate RF.

    Our local standards are CE, US standards are FCC. Therefore, users runs a risk with sets purchased online from US. Esp if u're a pro photog who covers official events.

    My advice is to stick to IDA approved models.

    there is only 2 models for skyports. the universal and the rx. for your flashguns, u can only use the universal ones. i was quoted 300 for the universal set by cathay without any other purchase. the bit i dun like is tat the transmitter doesnt have a locking mechanism.

    I understand there's supposed to be a new version of the skyports that works fine with Vivitar 285 HVs. Any idea when they'll be in here?

    They are not sold here. You can try your luck at Cathay Photo.

    I hold an USA passport and I'll be transiting through Singapore later this week.

    Does anyone know where I can (still) buy a pocket wizard? And do you know how much they are priced?

    Cheers,

    I've been putting off buying the skyport for some time and when I checked it out I noticed there's something called a transceiver as well in the universal set. Would it be better to get this than a regular receiver, and do the shops here sell them?

    That's the universal set. I think there's a typo; it should be 'receiver' instead of 'transceiver' as the larger looking box (receiver) cannot function as a transmitter, so it's not a transceiver.

    Prices have increased for awhile now. A standard set like that costs $350 at Cathay.

    Thanks for the info.. should've got it while the price wasn't so high yet.

    It's marginally cheaper if you get from B&H (mainly because of high shipping costs) but it's worth getting it from B&H if you're getting other stuff as well.
