I'm really interested in off-camera lighting, and would love to work wirelessly. Everyone says Pocket Wizards are the way to go. I've heard too many bad stories about the eBay wireless transmitters to go near them, I think. I've also heard some good things about the Elinchrom Skyport system, which is available to me (as I'm in Canada). However, the industry standard is PWs, and for a reason I suppose. So I'm looking into getting a set of 3 PW II transceivers. However, there is something I don't really understand. If I go to my local store here in Edmonton (Big Mike knows what I'm talking about), ONE PW II transceiver will run me $389 CDN, plus tax = $412. Multiply that by three, and I'm looking at over $1200. If I buy from an eBay store or seller (or a US-based store that will ship to Canada), I can get them for as little as $600 CDN (plus shipping) = $630, give or take. For ALL THREE transceivers. My third and other option is three Elinchrom units for about $450 plus shipping. I understand that there are radio laws (or something) that differ between US and Canada - I'm assuming this might be the reason the cost is so astronomical in Canada. But if I buy a set of PWIIs for half the price from a US eBay seller to use in Canada, will this affect me in any way? Will it affect their usability? Sorry for being so long-winded, but I'd like to hear what people know. Or think.
