PocketWizard Plus III Firmware Update!

The PocketWizard Plus III, one of the most popular models in our current line of products, has new firmware available in the form of version 1.200!

PocketWizard Plus IIIOne of the most noticeable differences to be found in the new firmware is the new system to monitor battery level. In our previous firmware, battery level was conveyed solely by color, but in firmware revision 1.200 we have changed this to be more intuitive and even easier to read. Now when the battery is between full and fifty percent the Status LED will blink green once, when between fifty and twenty-five percent the Status LED will blink amber twice, and when below twenty-five percent the Status LED will blink red three times.

Along with the improved battery indicator we have also made adjustments that improve communications between the Plus III and the MultiMax as well as improved compatibility with several older flash models. To read about these changes read the Plus III Firmware 1.200 release notes.

To update your radio simply plug your radio via USB into your computer and open the latest PocketWizard Utility (version 1.54) and the option to update will come up automatically. If you do not have the latest PocketWizard Utility, find it on our Downloads page.

  1. I have 2 of these and thought they would be a great addition to my flex for nikon only to find out that I can’t sync those 2 with my flex. Very frustrating.

      Right out of the box the FlexTT5s can trigger a Plus III set to the same channel. That would be Channel 1 and 2. That’s because a transmitting PocketWizard MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 transmits BOTH the standard signal, for Plus III, AND the ControlTL signal that the Mini an Flex use. If you are using the Plus III as a transmitter, you need to use the PocketWizard Utility to set the Flex to receive the Standard PW signal that the Plus III is transmitting. The Flex can receive either the ControlTL or Standard signal. Not both.
      The PLUS and MultiMAX transceivers cannot control a flash for TTL.

    Hey! I’m running Windows 7 Pro 64bit, can’t get your PWPIII updater (P3U7002788 and others) to work. Is it the 64 bit bit? wazzup?
