The common update for all these products is that we are adding more Air channels. Channel 9 to 20 are added to previous channels 1 to 8, which means the total number of channels will go from 8 to 20.
In scenarios where many photographers are working within the same space, galas, sport events or larger studios the extra number of channels provides a much better possibility for everyone to find a channel where lights and triggers won’t interfere.
For A1 the update also includes a completely new display interface developed for the A1X. The new interface is designed to make the A1 even easier to use and enhance the overall user experience.
