Yes, even in the wireless world of PocketWizard, radios still need to be connected to the device they are triggering and that requires a cable. We recently re-worked our wacky world of wires, especially the remote shutter release cables. We started by beefing up the cable, gold-plating the connections, designing new strain-reliefs, adding a product ID label, and giving the cables some nice industrial design complete with a stylized PocketWizard branded dome label. We’re pretty proud of them. With over 50 cables in our line, this process took a fair amount of time and there are a few lower volume cables in the line waiting to be reworked. At the same time, we redesigned our cable packaging. We switched to a box made from 100% recycled material with a biodegradable and recyclable label showing images of both ends of the cable and a complete compatibility list.
PocketWizard Announces New Nikon Power Cable for Use with MiniTT1®, Plus® III and MultiMAX® Radios
New Power Cable (PW-DC-N10) offers greater flexibility for photographers working with Nikon Digital Single-Lens Reflex cameras
So. Burlington, VT – June 19, 2013 – LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, announces the immediate availability of a new Nikon Power Cable (PW-DC-N10) for use with the PocketWizard MiniTT1 Transmitter, the Plus III and MultiMAX (version with USB port) Transceivers and any Nikon Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera equipped with a Nikon 10-pin remote terminal. The new cable provides a PocketWizard radio, mounted in the camera’s hot-shoe, the power it needs to operate from the camera.
By using the tidy (6-inch long) power cable, Nikon users ensure that their PocketWizard radio is ready when they need it because the camera keeps the Transmitter/Transceiver always awake for the fastest reaction time. And, since these PocketWizard radios use very little power, it has almost no impact on a camera’s battery life. This is especially helpful for users of the MiniTT1, whose coin-cell battery can be hard-to-find when needed.
The Nikon Power Cable (PW-DC-N10) is available now at an estimated retail price of $20.00. Additional information about this new cable and other PocketWizard accessories can be found on the PocketWizard website, here.
Incorporating the latest radio technology, PocketWizard radio triggers exceed the demands of the professional and serious amateur photographer with durability, ease of use, advanced capabilities and legendary reliability. PocketWizard products, including the PlusX, Plus III, Plus II, MultiMAX, MiniTT1, and FlexTT5 are made by LPA Design, based in South Burlington, Vermont and sold by distributors around the world.
