Back to Basics with Off-Camera Flash
Now that we’ve covered HyperSync© and Remote Camera Triggering in our recent newsletters and blog posts, we’re going back to the basics by focusing on simple off-camera flash using the MiniTT1, FlexTT5 and AC3 ZoneController for both Canon and Nikon. The MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radios allow you to take full advantage of the simplicity of TTL flash while taking your flash off the camera to improve your images. Add the AC3 ZoneController when using more than one off-camera flash for full creative control right from the camera. We’ve pulled together some existing content from our site which provides the basics of off-camera flash using PocketWizard ControlTL radios and accessories.
The following Behind the Scenes videos provide a quick overview of the MiniTT1, FlexTT5 and AC3 ZoneController in use by a variety of professional photographers.
