This bundle contains one Pocket Wizard Mini TT1 and Two Flex TT5 making it ideal for any aspiring strobist.
Professional photographers have depended on PocketWizard radio slaves for reliable triggering of their manual flashes for years. But, with the onslaught of digital technology, photographers have been seeking a simpler solution for off-camera TTL flash. The available products and solutions have been good, but not without limitations or complexity. PocketWizard has made it possible with the Slide-n-Shoot simplicity of the new ControlTL system, featuring the MiniTT1 Transmitter and FlexTT5 Transceiver for Canon. These new E-TTL II capable radio slaves make taking off-camera flash photos as effortless as slide-in, turn-on and shoot.
These products are the beginning of a new era in PocketWizard technology featuring the ControlTL firmware. ControlTL taps into the camera’s digital communications to enable an entirely new level of remote flash capability through our proven radio system, beginning with remote TTL for Canon E-TTL II systems. Sure, remote wireless flash is available today, but with major system limitations or complexities. Now you can simply slide-in, turn-on and shoot with the new PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 regardless of flash positioning or daylight. Changes in ISO, aperture and shutter speed are seamlessly passed along for reliable, flawless flash. You can even use your flash compensation controls to make changes in flash output. Need ratios? You can do that too.
• ControlTL: PocketWizard’s newest firmware platform taps into the camera’s digital communications to enable an entirely new level of remote flash capability through our proven radio system. ControlTL allows remote TTL for Canon E-TTL II systems as well as Manual Power Control. ControlTL firmware is configurable and upgradeable for “future-proof” continuous improvement. Find more details on ControlTL here. • Dedicated E-TTL II Triggering: Locking your MiniTTI Transmitter into the hot shoe of a Canon DSLR camera and mounting E-TTL II flashes onto FlexTT5 Transceivers gives you full autoflash exposure control with the freedom and reliability of a PocketWizard radio. There are no special settings to make or modes to call up. Use the camera, on-camera flash or flash commander controls for flash compensation, zone and ratio control. • Manual Power Control: Adjust the manual power settings of your remote Canon Speedlites directly from a 580EX II flash mounted on your on-camera MiniTT1 or FlexTT5. Working with a Canon 580EX II in the shoe of the MiniTT1 or FlexTT5, you can independently control the power output of up to three groups of lights (you can have as many lights in each group as you want) from full power down to the lowest setting simply through the user interface on the back of the 580EX II. Now you can work with total control with your remote lights, without leaving your shooting position. • Basic Trigger Mode: Allows the MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 to work as a transmitter on ANY camera it will fit. Anyone looking for the small form factor of the MiniTT1 can use it on other DSLR’s, SLR’s or even medium format cameras with standard hot shoes. The MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 are completely reverse compatible with all previous PocketWizards so they will work with whatever PocketWizards you already own. • Power Tracking: When working in E-TTL II you can change any of your control settings on your flash or camera and the system adjusts for those changes. Change your flash compensation to adjust the exposure or make adjustments in shutter speed, aperture or ISO and the system balances your flash for proper exposure. • Eight Frames per Second: Now you can shoot multiple remote E-TTL flashes at up to 8fps. • HyperSync: HyperSync allows photographers to achieve faster X-sync speeds, all the way up to 1/8000 second, with full power flash. Now you can cut the ambient light and use wide-open apertures, outdoors in bright sunlight. That extra speed can also freeze action, whether shooting models or athletes in motion. HyperSync works with both TTL speedlites and full size studio flash. All you need is a MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 on camera that has been tuned to your specific camera via the PocketWizard Utility. While performance varies by the camera and flash equipment being used, HyperSync will get the maximum possible out of any set-up. • FP/High Speed Sync: When HyperSync can’t keep up, High Speed Sync takes over for Speedlite flash photography all the way to 1/8000. ControlTL optimizes this amazing feature and provides more light (which equals greater working distance), faster recycling times and more flashes per battery set when shooting in Canon's HSS/FP Flash mode. Use this feature to shoot wide open in bright sun for amazing results. • High Speed Sync (HSS or FP Sync) Disable Mode. Select either HSS Sync or HyperSync™ at shutter speeds at or over 1/640. This allows you to use HyperSync and the benefit of full power flash all the way up to 1/8000 with certain flash systems. • Automatic HSS Trigger Timing for Manual Flash. This allows you to mix a manual flash with an E-TTL II flash in HSS/FP Sync shots at 1/640 and above with certain flash systems.
