VIDEO: Will Crockett gives the Plus III an 8.4 on the Will-o-meter

In this detailed review of the PocketWizard Plus III by Will Crockett, Will subjects the Plus III to some rigorous testing, and it comes away looking just fine.

In the video, Will takes the Plus III units to a place where many other radio triggers have failed—Chicago’s Lower Michigan Avenue. Not only is this a challenging urban environment, but it is right next to the Tribune News, WGN Radio, and two television stations. It would be tough to a location with more radio interference than that. To complicate matters, Will really spreads his strobes out, placing one 150 feet away. Despite his best efforts, Will experienced zero triggering failures out of the 268 shots he fired, leading him to say, “that tells me it works like a champ.”

“What kind of photographer would want to use this particular PocketWizard?” he asks. “Any photographer who wants an affordable, flexible, triggering system for a DSLR, a mirrorless, or even a point and shoot camera.”

    Nice video! That location really does have a ton of RF interference. A few years ago, I worked on installing an RFID system in the parking lots at the Chicago Tribune near this location and it was extremely challenging due to the RF interference in the area. This location provides a great test and testimony to the power of the PocketWizard Plus III.
