Adam Bronkhorst is a Brighton-based portrait photographer who also offers workshops on a variety of topics, from toy cameras to wedding photography.

As a teacher, Adam always recommended PocketWizard radio triggers to his students saying that “I’ve tried most things on the market and I’ve found what works and more importantly what doesn’t work, so if I can save people time and money then I’m more than happy to.” PocketWizards, he says, “just work.”

He was overjoyed to hear about the new PlusX, an affordable option with the same range and reliability of the other more advanced PocketWizard triggers.

The Phoblographer’s First Impressions of the PlusX

thephoblographer.com

The Phoblographer’s Chris Gampat is out of the gate and running with the new PocketWizard PlusX. He’s written up his first impressions of the just-announced trigger and says “so far they’re quite tempting — especially at the $99 price point.”

In the couple of hours he spent with them, Chris managed to trigger studio strobes and flashes from two floors above and on the other side of the building from his apartment. In a later review, he’ll be comparing them to his Plus III’s, but for now he concludes the PlusX is “compact, solid feeling, reliable, and simple to use.”

FStoppers’ Mike Kelley wasted no time getting his new PocketWizard PlusX’s “set up and rockin’.”

As soon as they were out of the box, he got them on his camera and went off to shoot, reporting “not a single hiccup” in use. He wraps up the mini review by saying, “As far as I’m concerned, at this price point, these units are a no-brainer if you are looking for legendary PocketWizard reliability, cross-platform capability, and support… [They’re] guaranteed to work, have an excellent support system in place, and will work with basically every lighting system under the sun.”

We look forward to their in depth review, coming soon! Read the mini review on FStoppers.com.

That Nikon Guy on the PlusX

Matt, or That Nikon Guy, is a longtime PocketWizard user who owns quite a number of different models, including the Plus II, Plus III, MiniTT1, and FlexTT5, so when he talks about triggers, you’re sure he knows his stuff.

In this video, he presents the PocketWizard PlusX, which he finds to be a great option for people who want “rock solid reliability”, but don’t need all the features of the Plus III or FlexTT5. It’s also compatible with all other PocketWizards, making it great for someone like Matt, who’s already invested in a PocketWizard system.

Despite his name, That Nikon Guy is a great resource for photographers, no matter what gear you favor. See more of his videos and connect with him on Facebook.

Strobist’s Take on the New PocketWizard PlusX

The buzz surrounding the release of the PocketWizard PlusX has made us very excited. We’d like to send a huge “thank you” to the entire photography community. The PlusX is the simplest PocketWizard ever, and has already earned over 55 positive reviews.

Here’s what one of the Internet’s favorite photo educators has to say about our latest release.

strobist.com

“Basically,” David Hobby of Strobist writes, “the new PlusX transceiver has everything you really need—and nothing you don’t.”

In his overview, David goes over the PlusX’s features, including design, controls, range, and power. As a longtime PocketWizard user, David is a great source of insight on the newest member of the PocketWizard family. He even notices the rotary dial is much like the one found on some of our older triggers. Good eye, David!

He concludes, “With it’s robust build, significant range, non-obsolescence and 2-digit price tag, I think the PlusX will quickly prove to be PocketWizard’s most popular remote.”

PocketWizard Announces Easy-to-Use PlusX Transceiver!

The following is the official press release of today’s exciting announcement.

PocketWizard® Announces Easy-to-Use Plus®X Transceiver for Wireless Flash and Camera Triggering

Simplest PocketWizard ever is ideal entry into the PocketWizard wireless system of products

PlusXSo. Burlington, VT – March 1, 2013 – LPA Design, manufacturers of PocketWizard Photo Products, the world leader in wireless control of cameras, flash lighting and light meters, today announces the immediate availability of its new PlusX Auto-Sensing Transceiver.

The high-quality PocketWizard PlusX is the perfect entry into the PocketWizard Wireless System with the same range and reliability of its renowned Plus line of radios.  Whether new to off-camera flash or remote camera triggering, or a seasoned professional looking to expand their PocketWizard wireless triggering system, the PlusX is the perfect choice. And as the user’s technical needs grow, the versatile PlusX will continue to work with any other PocketWizard radios that a photographer adds to their gear box.

The ten Channel PlusX uses PocketWizard’s patented “Auto-Sensing Transceiver Technology” which means it will automatically switch between transmit and receive as needed. Users just turn it on, connect it to the flash or camera and set the channel using its simple, rotary-dial.  The PlusX automatically figures out what it needs to do to trigger remote flashes or cameras. Using the same side-profile design of the PocketWizard Plus III radio, the PlusX has an internal antenna to minimize obstruction and increase durability.

“The new PlusX transceiver adds to the legendary Plus reliability that so many photographers have come to trust on all their photographic assignments,” said Dave Schmidt, Vice President of Marketing at LPA Design, the company that manufacturers PocketWizard Photo Products. “Working on a budget should not mean sacrificing performance or reliability.”

The PlusX is compatible with all PocketWizard transmitters and receivers including PocketWizard-enabled photo gear from Profoto, Dynalite, Norman, Photogenic and Sekonic light meters. The PocketWizard Wireless System allows for total flexibility with whatever lights or cameras a photographer may be working with.
