I was almost ready to trade in the PW's for Radio Poppers.

Now it will be more money for PW's I think... the link below has plenty of details and "questions answered" type stuff. Now to wait for the Nikon versions!

great news that you can use TTL. but am i right in saying that you need to buy an attachment for each PW ? they are already too expensive for me.

I thought they were standalone units that were backward compatible...?
