     Interesting little critter.  Costs US$85 by itself, US$130 when bundled 
with a transmitter.  I had been interested in the Canon 540 for a while, but it 
was large, heavy, and expensive.  A simple Yinyan CY-20 with a tilt head for 
less than $20 turned out to be useful, more so than an Olympus T-20.
