Has anyone seen or heard anything about this product: http://www.xotopro.com/ ?

They advertise a Pentax P-TTL model. It certainly looks interesting and the price is right but it is hard to judge build quality from a photograph.

Nothing. I did a Google search, and there are a number of dealers stocking it, but no reviews and no discounts - $439 across the board. At least it is "designed and assembled in the USA" (probably only the bracket and not the flashes). There were a number of queries posted like yours, but no opinions. I saw nothing about specifications or trigger voltage, or which models of any of the brands supported. It is an expensive gamble if it fries your camera's electronics. I'd wait for someone to review it.

Hi Tim, looks like what some enthusiasts have constructed out of Loc-line parts. I have made a single arm. I'll try to post parts list later. I f arms are too long I think they can sag- might be one issue, but otherwise looks great. Very pricey!

You guys in the US can get parts much cheaper than here in Australia. Just google Loc-line.

cheers for now
