Manual Off-Camera Flash and Remote Camera Control Made Easy


Control Your Lights & Cameras with PocketWizard Plus III and PlusX Radios

PocketWizard radios enable you take your flash off-camera and use it almost anywhere for lighting effects ranging from natural-looking to amazing.

You can also use the Plus III or PlusX to fire remote cameras in sync with remote flashes. If you are not using them now, they should be at the top of your must-have list.

Host Joe Brady will show you how to make best use of the PocketWizard Plus III and new PlusX radio triggers. He’ll demonstrate how they work together with your camera system and various camera and flash techniques to improve the way you shoot pictures. He will even show you new ways to use those old flash units you may have put away.

Join us at this free live broadcast sponsored by PocketWizard and learn how to take control of your camera and lights from anywhere.

    Hi Joe,
    I sat in on the Webinar on the PW 3 and +X,I have only one question, you stated that you would preset everything before the shoot, especially in LR, can you explain or do another video on the settings, I was able to replicate the shots from the video, but I did not get that fine professional look, I am an advanced hobbyist with my own studio. I have a soft box, umbrellas and 3 580EX II, I shoot with a Canon 60D and 20D and I have all primary lenses, I was thinking about adding continious lighting to my studio just to have a variety of lighting to experiment with. I like to view all your videos because I do learn from them.
    Thanks Joe,
    John I

      Here are resources for more information on the Plus III:

      Long Range (LR) mode is normally used for remote camera triggering. In this mode, the trigger signal is adjusted to be repeated and slower. This makes for a clearer signal for greater distance. Both the transmitter and receiver must be set to L:R mode for this mode to function, maximum range being about 1600 feet.

      Usually, one would preset the camera for the picture effect desired. Release would then be done at times when the photographer expects some event to change in the picture area. Presetting the camera makes sure the exposure and the focus point will not change from shot to shot. Some photographers opt to leave everything on automatic. Focus and exposure are set for each shot. However, the reflectivity of the subject can and will affect the total exposure. If bright-toned, the overall shot could be under exposed. If dark-toned it might be overexposed.

      We have a full webinar schedule this year. However, there are currently no plans to do one featuring the separate modes of the Plus III. I hope all of this information is useful towards your understanding of the Plus III.
