PocketWizard Releases Latest Firmware for ControlTL(tm)

Hot, hot! It’s a press release!

 

 Elmsford, NY – July 9, 2009 – PocketWizard has released the latest ControlTL firmware update; version 4.300.  This update addresses several performance issues, especially with the Canon 5D Mark II camera and is recommended for all MiniTT1™ and FlexTT5™ owners.  To install this update, simply connect your product to the PocketWizard Utility and click “check for updates” under the “maintenance” tab.  If you do not have the Utility installed on your computer, it can be downloaded for free at http://www.pocketwizard.com/support/downloads
Key improvements in firmware version 4.300:
    * ControlTL system will “auto-detect” the 5D Mark II camera. Photographers that previously had to craft C.1 or C.2 settings precisely for the 5D Mark II now have more flexibility.  This also allows the system to use the optimized HSS settings without manually selecting the camera model in the PocketWizard Utility.
    * “Forced TTL Master Mode” is now the default setting.  This is the required setting for any flash on top of the camera mounted MiniTT1 or FlexTT5.
    * Calibration shot does not trigger flashes. Triggering the flash during the first calibration shot is not needed so it has been turned off to save a little battery life.
    * Overall system performance improvements.
For more detailed explanation please see the release notes posted on PocketWizard.com.
PocketWizard products are made by LPA Design, based in South Burlington, Vermont and sold by MAC Group in the USA and authorized distributors around the world.

    C´mon guys. Any news upon the release for the CE version? It was due for 2nd quarter which is obviously history now.

    It would be neat if you keep the interested folks overseas updated on the progress.
