DPB MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 Review

Mark Stagi recently published a review of the PocketWizard MiniTT1 and the FlexTT5 on his Digital Photo Buzz site. He gives a solid overview of what both products do. It’s a great place to pick up what the fundamentals of this triggering technology is all about.

Stagi covers HyperSync technology and gives reasons why he upgraded from the PocketWizard Plus II units he’s relied on for the past two years. Be sure to check out the review and the rest of his site.

    I really like my MiniTT1 and FlexTT5s. The only thing that annoys me just a little is that the flashes won’t work in manual mode when the PWs have ControlTL enabled on that channel, so I have to have 1 channel for TTL, and one channel for Manual. :( But, at least I can set up my configuration that way…

    Could you tell me why MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 for Nikon, has not been release to the general public? Pocket Wizard, stated at beginning of summer that they will releasing new version for Nikon, in August but at this present time Pocket Wizard has not come though on their promises.

    Pocket Wizard stated “Nikon: Although we have a Nikon product that has solid core functionality right now, there are still a few key capabilities we are working on for launch. Testing is also ongoing for many of the millions of various camera-flash-settings combinations, any of which could have an impact on performance”. I been hearing that Pocket Wizard is having problems with the frequency. Is this a major factor in Pocket Wizard not releasing the new version for Nikon? Do you know time frame when Pocket Wizard will release MiniTT1 and FlexTT5?

    Thank You

  3. Thanks for your comment and continued interest :)

    We are currently in the final Beta testing for the Nikon ControlTL system. The Beta test group has been expanded and we expect that this will more quickly help the engineers find and adjust the firmware to the place we want to be to give you a truly great photography experience. While writing this I received the latest firmware upgrade. Progress. Happily, the Nikon system has none of the RF noise that we encountered in some of the Canon flashes. And as all Nikon equipment does an automatic “handshake” when assembled together, there is no need for a calibration shot before shooting. Life is good. All of that said, we are closer today than we were yesterday, literally. Further testing today, tomorrow and in the immediate future will give us a better idea when we can bring them to market. We will continue to report in as we progress. Stay tuned.
