PocketWizard announces ETTL compatible wireless control system
The only thing better than being able to do off-camera flash is the ability to do it wirelessly. The problem is that the remote control systems that are builting into today’s cameras are lacking in a number of important features, especially for Canon users that have to rely on infrared signals which limits range and flexibility. The industry standard has been to use PocketWizard devices to control your flashes but even as good as those were, you were stuck having to use manual control of your flashes. Here at WPPI PocketWizard has announced a complete new system that supports the TTL systems for Canon and Nikon.
The smallest PocketWizard radio ever, the MiniTT1â„¢ Transmitter locks onto the cameraâ€™s hot shoe supporting an on-camera flash with its own hot shoe while working with remote PocketWizard units. Remotes can be one or more PocketWizard FlexTT5â„¢ Transceivers connected to Canon E-TTL II flashes or any PocketWizard Receiver for triggering flash or remote cameras.
Flex TT5 – Canon
The dedicated FlexTT5â„¢ Transceiver, with its built in hot-shoe and ControlTLâ„¢ firmware, is the perfect addition to Canon E-TTL II flash systems.Â The FlexTT5 takes the existing benefits of Canon wireless systems beyond the boundaries of infrared technology.Â When paired with the Mini TT1â„¢ Transmitter or another FlexTT5 Transceiver, a whole new world of wireless flash freedom opens up.Â The FlexTT5 is also the perfect Transceiver for your manual triggering needs and works with all MultiMAX channels and many of the MultiMAX advanced functions.
