Will over at Discover Mirrorless is one lucky man. He is the first person to be testing the new Quantum Trio with CoPilot controller designed for Panasonic’s TTL system. Since both Panasonic cameras and Olympus cameras all share the same hot shoe and contact port, the system should theoretically work for Olympus as well. For those of you not familiar with them, Quantum has been a leading company in the speedlite business. Wedding photographers swore to them for a while and many still do. They’re some of the most powerful speedlites out there and also function with radio control–but they’re still not a replacement for a monolight.
So what does this mean for us? Well, first off someone is finally taking mirrorless camera users more seriously. But in addition to that, the Micro Four Thirds system now has their own radio flash system. Hoorah!
