One more of only twenty limited edition “Tutu Pink” PocketWizard Plus III transceivers is now available at auction. This Plus III, number five of twenty, will be hand-numbered and signed by photographer Bob Carey of The Tutu Project.

The PocketWizard Plus III Transceiver, in “Tutu Pink” is a very limited edition batch of just twenty radios. In addition to the Pink plastics, the LED backlight of the LCD screen is also pink. The Plus lll is an Auto-Sensing Transceiver, which means it will automatically switch between transmit and receive as needed and is reverse-compatible with all PocketWizard radios, making it the perfect addition to existing gear.

All proceeds from the auction go to support the Carey Foundation, a 501c nonprofit organization which directly assists families suffering from breast cancer with daily needs such as transportation to doctor appointments, childcare, meals in homes, etc.

Once these twenty Tutu Pink Plus III radio triggers are sold for charity, no others will be manufactured. They’re destined to become photographic collectors’ items.

Last September we released our short film about photographer Bob Carey and his personal endeavor called “The Tutu Project.” Using PocketWizard technology, Bob employed remote camera triggering to take self-portraits of himself in a pink tutu. With his wife Linda undergoing chemotherapy treatments, she and her fellow patients enjoyed the photos. This led to The Tutu Project and the creation of the Carey Foundation to support women undergoing breast cancer treatment.

The series has proved incredibly popular, with media coverage from CNN, The Today Show, the BBC, and countless other media outlets. Last fall Bob photographed himself and survivors at a series of halftime events at NFL games.

PocketWizard is proud to announce it is cosponsoring an event to celebrate the Tutu Project’s first anniversary. The event will be held at The Lab NYC, 122 West 26th Street, New York City, on Friday, March 22nd and Saturday, March 23rd, 2013.
