In Topic: Subal TTL V3

Thanks for the insight Pavel. If you go to the Boot show will/can you take a current Subtronic flash (Pro 160) and test its TTL-functionality on this board, pleeeeease...

If I may chime in: for Soccoro the best fit IMO would be the Nik 16-35 and a Sigma 15mm f/2.8, the latter for the close Giant Mantas at St. Benedito. No Macro lens needed.

Probably there is something like a "Nachlasstundung", a similar law procedure for financial troubled companies in the US under the Chapter 11.


But if new products will be shipped to customers that probably would require to set-up a new company other than the current Subal GmbH Austria? The question remains whether the rights for the design, trade names and patents (if any) can be used in the future without legal complications? Just speculation at this time; potential customers want clarity before making engagements...


Adam, did he say something about the long-awaited outstanding shipments e.g. the ND850? Is it stil possible to order? Which company will enter a sales contract with a customer und will make fulfillment?

Factory is relocating. I suppose that previous company will be closed, using bankrupt procedure. Probably, Subal will use another company for sales. I don't see a great problem in that. Looking to some details, i guess that Subal will continue produce housings.

can they take out the trade name "Subal" and patents and put these into a new company for continuation?

I don't think that under European insolvency laws claims with lower values (under 5000.-) are being able to be exempted and repaid without losses. I was reading from a Vienna lawyer that they will take claims under 5000 for free for registering only, one has only to pay € 23 for court fees...


Normally under insolvency laws, some privileged claim categories like mortgages and collaterals go first in clearing, then employee's claims and open social securities claims from the government as well as taxes and finally all others' including customer prepayments as well as producers receivables will be cleared off by a percentage at the best, if enough salable assets are still around.


Just want to make that clear; otherwise some "hopes" might be destroyed again later-on...
