thnx, larry! do let us know soon which are available?ok a quick word on the camera and flash compatible cables, i just found out that they are using the same OEM cables as Quantum, so for those who already use them, you can "re-cycle" them on the CD-2X2. EG may not be bringing in a whole range of cables for all cameras & flashes, just the common ones, for reason of scale of economies (it costs a lot of $$$ to R&D these things)...
also, it solves the question of available cables... whatever Quantum uses, this is able to use as well so check www.qtm.com for compatibility.
Li-ion and Li-polymer batteries hold charge quite well. Some say they take twice as long to self-discharge as equivalent NiMH batteries. YMMV.very interested too...but i want to know how long can the thing hold its charge when not in use...(ie self-discharge rate)
It's Li-poly so I doubt it's an off-the-shelf replaceable. Probably have to get replacements from EG themselves.Is the battery replaceable? and how much? How many re-charging can it take? How does it compare to quantum for these 3 questions?
erm, not sure who told you but I don't think you got the right info. the initial price estimates (sorry I can't really get into details) i got was nowhere near $1k (which is the price of the Quantum 2X2). it's never been EG's policy to price items so high anyway but to make it more affordable for photographers to enjoy.
