This caught my eye:

 

“two exciting new features exclusively for the new Retra Flash”. I guess you will tell us in November.

Having recently read Retra’s post on a “new” Retra Flash coming in 2019, and that it will be “accompanied by a new battery compartment door, designed to improve the handling and reduce the chance of flooding the battery compartment.” Having previously owned a pair of Retra, to which one of them suffered water intrusion in the battery compartment during the second week the strobe had ever been in use I would be most interested to see what exactly this redesign will feature.

I believe TRT Electronics' TURTLE triggers support TTL over fiber optics.s

Hi There.

If we get a pair of Retra we implement the Turtle just in few days.

Once the firmware update for the current Retra Flash is available (expected at the end of the year) TTL converters will likely work with existing settings for currently supported strobes.

Until then we do not recommend making any changes.

Will existing units be able to be flashed with an update?
