Although the X800C may appear to look similar to Pixel’s first and recently released Mago Flash, the X800C are actually a completely redesigned and smaller flash body, now resembling much more the original Canon 600EX-RT design.
The flash head also now smaller and similar in shape to the Canon 600EX-RT.
A tilt locking button is also provided on the side of the flash head.
Interestingly the USB port for firmware updates has move out of the battery compartment as the Mago provides, and is now mounted outside next to the external HV battery port.
Pixel have retained their own LCD interface style (which is quite easy to navigate in the Mago), now adding radio transmission modes.
Pixel are also now looking for photographers to test and review the new X800C.
