Pixel King Wireless Flash Trigger for Canon E-TTL II Receiver Package

Pixel King Wireless Flash Trigger for Canon E-TTL II Receiver Only


The Pixel King for Canon is a second generation wireless TTL trigger, with the TTL-control via Flash Control Menu (FCM); based on the Pixel Knight (first released in 2009). Same as the Pixel Knight, the King offers:

  • * Wireless TTL flash trigger
  • * Support flash exposure compensation via camera
  • * Remote/wireless manual power adjustment
  • * High speed sync up to 1/8000s (HSS; with compatible flash such as the Canon EX II series)

Several major improvement/enhancement of Pixel King has been made over the original Pixel Knight:

  • * Flash control via the Flash Control Menu (FCM; first introduce by Canon on Canon 40D & adopted on all EOS camera release later than 40D). This offers a very convenient and interactive way of controlling the remote flash.
  • * Now able to do second curtain sync (the Canon ST-E2 will does not allow second curtain sync).
  • * Allows manual grouping & power adjustment.
  • * Improved range, now up to 100m.
  • * Allow user download the latest firmware & update via mini USB port.
  • * Uses easily available AA batteries, same as the flash/speedlight. No more CR2!

Like the Pixel Knight, it does not support the Canon wireless protocol (i.e. it can not work as ST-E2/580EXII as the master to trigger 430EX flash in remote mode), but instead it works by "fooling" the remote flash that it is mounted on the camera hot-shoe. Vice-versa, the camera will work as if there a TTL flash mounted on the hotshoe.

The body physical design is similar to the Pixel Bishop. It uses the 2.4 GHz frequency, and Pixel rate it as having a working range of up to 100 meters.

The Pixel King Transmitter provides 7 selectable channels and 3 different groups. For power, both the TX and RX use two AA-sized batteries. Both the TX and RX have an mini USB-socket to allow firmware updates, and also plug in external 5V power supply . Both the TX and RX have a hotshoe mount. The RX hot-shoe is for mounting remote flash/speedlight. However, the TX hot-shoe is NOT a TTL pass-through shoe, and can not be used to mount an additional flash/speedlight on top of it. Instead, Pixel has indicated that they plan introduce a optional control unit (tentatively named "N-ETTL") that can be mounted in the transmitter hot-shoe; likely to act as a Zone Controller.
