Although the new Pixel Flash resembles the Canon 600EX-RT in some ways, it does not currently have any radio transmitter or receiver built in as previously expected.
Radio may still come later though as this is just Pixel’s first flash unit. And with large clean user interface controls, and full dot matrix LCD screen, this is certainly an interesting starting point for Pixel flash units.
