Fotodiox has a new flash trigger system, the WonderBurst NEX, which features the unique NEX flash mount transmitter and a traditional hot shoe receiver. The wireless units feature 16 selectable channels and a 300′ range.
These are manual-only triggers and do not transmit TTL info and the manual flash sync speeds are limited to 1/160s. Still yet, it’s a very affordable system at only $40 for the transmitter and receiver package. Check it out here on Amazon.com.

Even though the Sony NEX-3 is last year’s model, it’s still a competent camera – and Amazon has a solid deal now through December 3. The Sony NEX-3 kit with an 18-55mm lens and the 16mm f/2.8 pancake lens is only $499.
The 16mm lens alone is normally $250, so this is quite a bargain.
Here’s the link to Amazon.
You can currently save $200 on the total kit price if you buy a Sony NEX camera with an 18-55mm kit lens and a 16mm f/2.8 lens at the same time. B&H Photo has the details and available cameras listed here.
It looks like Sony’s newest NEX camera has surfaced. The new NEX-C3 follows last year’s release of the NEX-5 and NEX-3 is rumored to have a 16.2MP sensor and the ability to capture 720p HD video. Accompanying the new mirrorless camera is a new Sony NEX flash (pictured below).
Both products are expected to be announced in May 2011. Note that the NEX-5 and NEX-3 were announced on May 11, 2010 following several leaks of product photos in the days leading up to the official announcement.
